  1. I have a bunch of friends that were just simply down right taken in by the euphoria of hope and a new era ..blah blah blah…during the campaign.

    I warned my friends, that not all was roses regarding the candidate, that although he had the gift of gab and the silver lined tongue they should be guarded but they were all literally swept of their feet and chastised me for not believing in the dawn of a new era.

    Of course, I don’t go around saying “I told you so” but recently I have detected a slight hesitancy and perhaps a certain animosity when we discuss current national events. They certainly seem to be past denial and now on the firm track of feeling betrayed.

  2. Since Obama broke a promise during the campaign (he promised that he would vote against telecom immunity, and then he voted for it, at which point I never gave him another cent), I was (I thought) somewhat prepared, but I was surprised by his hostility to civil rights and his penchant for secrecy.

    Obviously, he’s done some good things, but overall—though infinitely better than the alternative (can you imagine the McCain-Palin Administration?)—a disappointment.

  3. To borrow a phrase aimed at me recently: The McCain-Palin Administration would of been just a few gallons below a quart.

    I find Mcain’s political past a bit circumspect and Palin’s intellect equally circumspect. But like one politician said on a Bill Mahr documentary ‘you do not have take an IQ test to be elected to office’.
