you mean 'roll up your sleeves' like this

|Joe Dirt||I almost feel sorry for President Obama. He has NO chance of ever accomplishing all the bull he has promised everyone to get where he is. Usually, when that happens the president can blame congress, Senate. Not this time. In 4 years the people will butcher him for it. Good luck Barry, you're going to need it.|

I can't wait till tomorrow so all this crap will start to cease!
Whoever wins, as previously mentioned, must be held to at least trying to make things better.
Will McCain make things better? Dunno, he'll try.
Will Obama make things better? Really dunno(!), there's no track record to relate to.
Will I support them? I agree with Tiny, they work for me (and you, and you). As long as they are pushing things in the right direction, then yes I'll support them. Otherwise I feel it is my duty to do my little part and voice concerns about their efforts (or lack therein).

As far as backing the next president, I will always back our country, but I will not stand behind a man who I do not agree with on a political, personal, or moral level. I will not back a man, who I feel does not have the best interest of this country and ALL of its citizens (including the wealthy, babies, etc, not just disenfranchised minorities) at the center of his actions. So no, I will not fall in line behind Obama... Also, while yes we all have to work to save our country, I will not role my sleeves up and blindly work towards and outcome which I do not agree with or I feel is not favorable for myself or my country. I will not be, in a sense, Obama's pawn, I buy into the idea of America whole heartedly, unfortunatley I am not as enthused about some of our leaders.

Politics is all about compromise, sometimes you have to do things you don't agree with to accomplish things you feel are important.
For the record, I oppose the bailout.

For the record, I disagree with his stance on water boarding.

|jupiterboy||^ I don't think the bailout has earmarks. It is more of a blank check. However McCain has always been pro deregulation, and I have not heard him defend that position throughout the campaign.|
|11-04-2008 03:47 PM|
|txjustin||Also, I thought McCain was against earmarks? Why, then, did he so adamently push the bailout package with so many earmarks?|
|11-04-2008 03:43 PM|
So why did McCain compromise on torture. That was a total surprise. I know it was "just the CIA" but that is so his issue.
I think it would be a much tighter race had he been more himself, or his persona, or whatever.
|11-04-2008 03:41 PM|
|txjustin||Not really because I never had a point. If it makes you feel better to keep backing McCain...go for it. But after tonight, most likely, he will fade back out of the spotlight.|
|11-04-2008 03:33 PM|
|skeeter||Want to have a contest to see who can prove their point without resorting to childish comments like that?|
|11-04-2008 03:27 PM|
|txjustin||Lol, ok chief|
|11-04-2008 03:20 PM|
|skeeter||Yes, McCain has a documented history of doing, or at least trying to do what he says. Obama does not.|

|cavediverjc||Cancun's a dump. Let's move to Panama!! Bocas Del Toro here we come!! Even though I voted against him, I think Obama is going to win this election. I'm not happy about it, but technically he'll be my new boss when he takes over from GW. I don't have to back him......he's here for us, and I think we should put him on the hotplate like all the Democrats have been doing to GW and McCain and see if he comes through with a single campaign promise. My guess is that all those promises will be conveniently forgotten.|

|jgano23||lets all move to mexico. there's great offroading there i hear. cancun here we come.|

|Darton||Funny they say that. How many of "them" are backing G. W. Bush right now? He's still the President.|

|tiny terror||Back him how? Once he's elected, he should still be held up to the scrutiny EVERY elected official deserves. Plus, he works for me, so, he needs to have my back, not the other way around.|
|11-04-2008 12:37 PM|
|jupiterboy||Backing is a funny term. The country was built on second-guessing authority and expressing dissent. I don't see any reason to stop. We should, however, keep a constructive sense about our destruction.|
