Bare with me America, this place is messed up!

The forty-fourth man has been in office and in-charge less than thirty days, give the man a break.

President Obama's biggest challenge, in my opinion, is when "Hope" is left to the imagination of the masses, each individual with their own personal agenda, each with their own definition of what success looks like. How does anyone deliver it all? They don't deliver it all, it is impossible.

Remember the quote: "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time."

Abraham Lincoln, (attributed)
16th president of US (1809 - 1865)

I am sure Mr. Obama will make many changes for the better and also some which I am personally against (especially when I have to pay for it), but I am hopeful that when all is said and done, and the dust settles on his reign, we will all count it for good.

These are hard times, but America is still the land of opportunity!

Thanks! People are crazy. Expectations out-of-this-world.
Human miracles - say what!

We need to keep a level head and encourage everyone we know to do the same and maybe the madness will dissipate.

Bravo Mike! I have high hopes AND realistic expectations.

I try to maintain realistic expectations too, as I love to find myself pleasantly surprised, in awe, wonder, and astonishment.
Thanks all!
