I did not agree with Bush's energy policy.

I did not agree with his approach on the War on Terror. It was unilateral isolationist.
I never noticed one thing he did to shore up Social Security OR Healthcare.
Add to that the dismal way his administration handled Katrina.
Your man lost the election in large part bacause of Bush, but primarily because Obama has generated enthusiasm and is a gifted and capable polititian. Even McCain agreed with that assessment. Now, I know it is hard to take, but Obama is the President Elect. Its over and the American people has made their decision. Many of us are happy about that. Feel free to complain all you want - that is your right. Obama won more votes than any President in history. He won the Presidency with "Red" AND "Blue" states and that is that.
I begin by saying, trust me, we are all losers thanx to this.
and you gave me a bunch of general disagreements... why didn't you like his energy policy? was it because it didn't jump on Al Gore's idiotic bandwagon whole heartedly?
why did you not like his judicial nominations? was it because he dodged libs that think they are supposed to MAKE law and not just INTERPRET it?
why did you not like his approach to the War on Terror? Whether you like it or not, we are isolated in large part when it comes to this topic. These crackheads want to destroy America and all of our interests because we are free, and are the greatest country on the planet.
and drop the Katrina idiocy!!! That was poor planning on the part of local and state authorities. Not only SHOULD Bush NOT have stepped in before the hurrican, he COULD NOT!! That is a local and state issue that the fed has to stay away from. If that idiot mayor(which was reelected by the way--talk about idiots!!) and that idiot govener would have handled pre-Katrina properly, then you would have seen a situation more like what happened in Alabama, and Mississippi. They took care of themselves and didn't cry, piss and moan for the gov't to give them everything.
and I agree that Obama has generated enthusiasm...but the enthusiasm of idiots who voted for a committed socialist, who is the most liberal and least qualified prez in history. Hitler and Castro generated enthusiam also...and were both fantastic public speakers...and were both elected in democratic votes...but I think you'd agree that neither were good change.
just by the by...I don't care for Bush all that much myself, so if you think I'm just a committed "red" state guy, you are wrong. Bush has tried to cater to idiot libs for PC purposes, when they would never give him credit no matter what. Libs will always hate Bush, thus he should've stuck to his conservative guns. But he didnt. He hurt himself and the republican party by trying to be bipartisan on issues that he shouldnt have. And I'd venture to guess that many of the issues you dilike him for are ones that were broght to him by libs on that he gave in to.
I am a conservative because that's how our founding fathers envisioned the American people being. Common sense folks that don't want the gov't in their business and money...but that also wouldnt stand with outstreched hand expecting everything from the gov't. Obama wants a nanny state, because that's what socialists want. Big gov't, big taxes, small individual rights....He talks a pretty game, but it will turn Freddy Kruger ugly the more of his absurd policies that get implemented.
So, like I said, uninformed(and misinformed) idiots got this guy in....but as an American I promise to give him the honor and respect that Bush has gotten over the last 8 years.
