Is Obama "Your President"?
November 7, 2008 | No Red Tape

Posted on 11/07/2008 11:50:37 AM PST by NoRedTape

As the giddy minions gear-up for "President-elect" Obama's news conference today and the transition of power over the coming weeks, what is your view of the new "President-elect"?

Do you consider Obama "Your President"? Will you partake in past conventional acceptance and show respect for him holding such Office? or.. will you decide to not support him as President?

Personally, I do not consider him my "President". Obviously, this pains me because as an American I would want to feel great about supporting whomever is duly elected. But Obama was pushed through, in my opinion, not vetted - just shuffled through the process by the Liberal Press (lamestream media). He was NEVER challenged on the negatives of his associations and never even specifically took the time to answer questions on his Birth Certificate or to answer the Flag pin controversy or his 'hands at his waist' during the National Anthem. The largest issue of divide is his stance on abortion. Secondly is his liberal influence which terrifies me in how he might handle the placement of Judges on the Supreme Court and the many other, but still critical lower Courts. Thirdly is how he might dilute the Military and mishandle the War.

Who is this President-elect to you?

Is he "Your President"? If so...........why? And, if not..............why not?

Absolutely not! His views are anathema to liberty and freedom and good moral values. He’s a snake and will say or do anything to further his own agenda.

A marxist, treasonous, media-pushed, lying psychopath whose elegibility is dubious at best will never be my President.

yes, he is our president elect regardless if I didn’t vote for him. If he helps the country get stronger, then great. But his ideas have never helped this country get stronger so of course I am skeptical. He has the mandate to do what he wants to do and has a congress to allow him to do so. So let’s let him do his job and see how it goes.

Not until January 20th, then, he will be President of the United States, and I sure as heck am not going to ever turn my back on this country and give up my citizenship, so by default, yes.

Now, does this mean I will agree with him? Heck no.. remember the words of Hilldog- Dissent is Patriotic.

Once he’s sworn in, he’ll be our president, unless you plan on renouncing your US citizenship. Hopefully, by January, we’ll all stop acting like the moonbats.

Nope, not my president. He’s an extraordinarily divisive liar who is in it for himself and the $$$ he can make. Period. There is nothing about this dude that is going to make this country a better place for my kids. He could care less about anyone but himself. His associations are horrid, his voting record atrocious and he is a rich, elitist thug who in my mind is no different than Chavez or any other dictator.

Nope, I have no claim to him. Anyone else is welcome to claim him, it won’t be me. I’ll speak of him the way his party spoke of W for eight years.

Yes, he will be after taking the oath of office. If I were to meet him after 1/20/09 I would refer to him as Mr. President.

At least for now we still have the freedom of speech and I intend to use that freedom to oppose his policies at almost every turn.

Absolutely NOT, and will never be. With the liberal elitists, the media and the whole RAT leadership foisting this inexperienced, illegitimate, corrupt individual upon the public with the 2nd coming messiah complex just because he’s BLACK, no way in Hades is he my president. I require way higher standards than that.

I was thinking that if the first black president had to be a Democrat, why did it have to Obama? I would have much rather seen Morgan Freeman or Bill Cosby be elected.

Frankly, I consider my party to be way better than his. Therefore, I have to act way better than they did. Actually, that’s not difficult. My parents raised me to do that.

George W. Bush is "my" president until January 20.

When 0bama becomes the president, he will be the president, but not really "my" president, because he didn't get my vote.

I viewed Clinton the same way - he was the president, but not "my" president. I respect the office, but not necessarily the man.

He is the President Elect. He will be the legitimate President, once he is sworn in. There is nothing we can do about that.

Henny Youngman the King of the one liners passed on today. If he’d been asked, “Do you consider Obama to be “Your President”?, I expect he might say something like. Sure he is, but not for long.

RIP Henny.

And there is nothing that says I must agree with him (yet).

I will fight against all and any policies that do not meet my values and/or my standards.

We need all who disagree with his program(s) to say so every hour of every day of every week of every year(s).

How can he be considered anyone’s President? He has not taken office.

Sorry that your set-up question didn’t work. Wonder how many trolls we are going to be getting to go with the ones we have?

He is the president so as an American I respect that. I will not allow myself to be like the bone-head left.

He is not MY president unless he changes 99% of is views and policies.

With that said, I'm going gun shopping this afternoon. I think I am going to get a Ruger...

Yes, I will consider him my President. There is no point in acting like an ass (no pun intended) like the Dems have for the past 8 years.

That doesn’t mean his actions won’t be criticized by me when I feel it’s necessary.

I consider Senator Obama to be unqualified until he proves he is a natural-born citizen. The secretaries of state and various judges can demur, but I will not. When he shows he is qualified instead of fighting and avoiding the question, then I will refer to him as president. My respect is earned, not given automatically.

LOL! I notice our spell check still does not recopgnize the word Obama.

Unless you revoke your citizenship, you are an American and your President elect is Obama. He will be your President. The Dems hated Bush and he was their President too, whether they cried about it or not. One side wins, one side loses, get over it. To blather on “He’s not my President” is so damn juvenile it makes my 7 year old look mature when he goes into meltdown over a lost board game.
Yes, this was a big stakes election. Yes we lost. Yes the next 4 years may very well suck and have changes we detest. But life goes on. Just like I tell my 7 year old.

So whine or cry a little more and get it out of your system. He’s your President elect and that is a simple statement of fact at this point in time. You certainly don’t have to like it, but my God, deal with it. Or are we going to take our ball and run home crying to mommy because we didn’t win the game? Sheesh.

Hmmmm... this one is very difficult.

I was in the military, and we were taught we salute the uniform, not the man. So I respect the office, not the man.

However, I am adopting a wait and see. If Obama governs as if he cares about America, even if we disagree, I can accept that. If Obama governs as I expect, like a Manchurian candidate who is bent on America’s deconstruction, that is when he will disqualify himself as being my president.
