I’m listening and I haven’t heard him say a thing except complain about the economy. Maybe he’ll do that later.

Then what is he? A guinea pirate?

we will make election history on this historic moment the economic calamity that we all face. We don’t have easy solutions just hard facts. We need a calm head of clams.

We wore black in our family as well the day after. What is really cool is in our neighborhood, the McCain/Palin signs are still out! I just think that is the neatest thing. It’s like a mini-solidarity movement (or denial), LOL.

That “office of the president elect” sign is downright classless. First, there is no such office. And second, the sign looks like it was printed in a hurry at a “Signs In Ten Minutes” type store.

Does his limo have a “Car of the president elect” sign?

No specifics.

Finally as we monitor and address these immediate economic challenges we will be moving forward...can’t afford to wait...

Close by saying I do not underestimate the enormity of the task that lies ahead. Bla bla bla.

Choices will be difficult. It is not going to be easy or quick. We will succeed if we put aside politics...one nation.

Taking Questions.

If I was GWB I wouldn’t lift a finger for this clown.

He based his whole campaign on attacking the Bush Administration, so let make him wait until Jan 20th to put *his* plan in place.

That “office of the president elect” sign is downright classless.

After the 2000 election, what would have been the media response if Bush started staging "Office of the President-elect" briefings, and generally acting as though his term had already started before Clinton had left office?
