Obama Supporters Get Their Man

Fifty nine million, seventy five thousand, nine hundred thirty voters are disappointed today, including me.

The overwhelming reason people voted for Obama is because of the current state of the economy. They linked John McCain with President Bush and they wanted change.

In his acceptance speech at Grant Park, President-elect Obama said, "It's been a long time coming, but tonight, because of what we did on this date in this election at this defining moment change has come to America."

President-elect Barack Obama is a great speech giver. We'll see if he's a good president.

Time will tell.

Obama supporters got their man. Now a few questions for them:

What now is the role of the U.S. military in the world?

How, specifically, will the Obama administration help the economy?

Will Obama, unlike Bill Clinton, follow through with his tax cut to the middle class?

Will Obama, Pelosi and Reid truly govern from the center?

George Miller, who heads the House committee that deals with 401(k)s, wants to eliminate this tax subsidy. He and others want to put this all under Social Security, and let the government take control of it. Will this be attractive to the Obama administration? (The mainstream media did not talk about this issue during the campaign.)

After the announcement that Obama had won the election, why were some of his supporters outside the White House carrying the Soviet flag?

Finally, during the last couple of years, Obama has been pouring honey in so many people’s ears. During his acceptance speech at Grant Park in Chicago, why did he begin to lower the expectations of his administration?

Obama - “The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep. We may not get there in one year or even in one term.”

And this also from Obama’s Grant Park speech:

Obama - “There will be setbacks and false starts… We know the government can’t solve every problem… Above all, I will ask you to join in the work of remaking this nation.”

Obama campaigned on Hope and Change. Reality is now setting in.
