President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and their wives, Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, wave as a helicopter carrying former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, leaves the Capitol following the inauguration ceremony Tuesday.

...excerpt...
For Bush, sitting right behind Obama throughout, the speech might have been uncomfortable (though he says he doesn't dwell too much on what people say about him). A lot of the text was a blunt repudiation of Bush's legacy. "We reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals," Obama said.

face it, during his reign the elections were the most controversial of all time

False.  Check out the elections of John Quincy Adams and Rutherford B. Hayes for example.  Those make the arguments over the 2000 election look like a friendly chat.  I disagree with most of your other points, but I don't want to start a flame war over this.  Just wanted to point out some of our early controversial elections.  Most people don't know much about them, but they're really fascinating.

I agree with j3shafer.  People should be judged by their ACTIONS, and since Obama hasn't spent even one day in office yet, that it's ridiculous to prejudge him positively or negatively.  Can't we at least give the guy as few weeks in office before deciding if he's the best/worst thing ever?

ok i'll amend that to "our" time. i dont recall anything about those elections at the moment, but i'll take your word. however....you seem to forget dubya had TWO of the most controversial of all time. one is bad enough, but freakin 2 is very suspicious. so i think that more than trumps any fishing for individuals in the old presidential close elections barrel.

btw don't take everyone who hates bush's dispicable presidency as goo-goo eyed obamagirl types. i dont even know who that obama guy is. few really do. he's a cypher. sure it's history and he seems nice enough, i wish him luck. as you say, we'll see.

2004 was completely legit. In fact, it was over rather early if I recall.

But I'm to agree on that who and what Obama is, good or bad, still unknown.

>People were cheering at work today - pretty euthoric mood overall.

Euthoric is not a word.  But today my boss did bring in a celebratory cheese cake and someone was smoking pot in the 5th floor bathroom.   

I think the formation of the Department of Homeland Security was totally stupid, considering there is already the CIA, FBI, US Marshals, ATF, Coast Guard, etc.  There's no reason why the duties being performed by the Department of Homeland Security can't be happening under the auspices of one of those existing agencies.  It's an expansion of government that will eventually just be another ego-driven agency that will fight for the limelight with the others. 

I also think the No Child Left Behind Act was stupid because I don't believe that standardized testing has much value and that individual school districts should be able to set their own standards.  It discourages the kind of experimentation that is responsible for the eclectic character of the educational landscape.  At least the private schools are off the hook and free to continue as they please.

Disgraced former president Bush looked like a petulant child when CNN cut to his image during President Obama's inaugural speech today.  To his credit, during his last weeks he was trying to burnish his image and did not do anything heinously dickish.  There are still 22 more chances for him not to go down in history as the worst president of this century.

"petulant child"? I guess he was just a little dismayed by the heckling from all the classy spectators who haven't recovered from their Bush Derangement Syndrome or didn't get the message that this was supposed to be a new era of "unity." lol! whatever. Then again, Obama's image was "burnished" months before he even won the election. Go figure.  But I'll certainly give him his due, at least for the time being. Who knows, maybe four years from now (or maybe eight, if he's lucky) I may even have the utmost respect for him. He may actually prove himself worthy of the office if, like George Bush, he can match his stellar record of having kept the country safe from a second terrorist attack for 7+ years! Time will tell. In the meantime, there's a lot more partying to do; but ready for the hangover...

Right about this time tomorrow Obama will be briefed on our relationship with extraterrestrials and the fate of the cosmos, as we know it, will rest in his lap.  He'll also have to act like he doesn't know the whereabouts of Elvis/Hitler/Bigfoot/Jimmy Hoffa.

Am I the only one who think Michelle Obama's white feathery dress references Bjork's infamous swan dress?  Seriously, the woman's sense of style is simply frumpy, and that that's coming from a jeans & sweatshirt guy.

There's no hero worship, naw

ST JOHN'S, Antigua Antigua plans to give the new U.S. president its "top" honor on his birthday: Renaming its tallest peak Mount Obama.

Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer says the Caribbean nation will rename Boggy Peak, as it is currently known, on Aug. 4 to mark President Barack Obama's 48th birthday.

He first announced the plan in November in a congratulatory letter to Obama but didn't say when it would happen. He revealed the date on Tuesday.

Spencer said he joined "people of color all over the world, and indeed all people" in celebrating Obama's inauguration ...

I don't recall any terrorist attacks under Warren G. Harding, so does that make him best ever?  Chester Arthur?  Lack of explosions is a pretty low bar.  If there's any blame to give Clinton for 9/11, then Bush is still on the hook for all the new terrorists his policies have created since then.

Does anyone else think that Obama seems a little worried about the unrealistically high expectations many of his supporters have for him?  The tone of his speeches changed dramatically after he won the election.  He now has a much more subdued tone and I feel like he's trying to bring everyone back down to earth so that in a couple months when the change isn't what people expected they don't have too bad of a hangover.

I was also a little upset to learn that Obama's Chief of Staff put a halt to further consideration of pending regulations from the Bush administration.  What happened to unity?  People are saying that this was an extremely smooth transition... then why does the incoming leadership need to freeze everything that the former leadership was working on?  Maybe I'm just upset by this because I find Rahm Emanuel to be cocky, combative, and extremely partisan.  I watched him on Meet the Press on Sunday and I was not impressed.

I was not an Obama supporter but I honestly hope and believe that he can do great things for this country.  Our nations image world wide is already changing for the better thanks solely to President Obama.  And now that the election is over and he's in office... Sarah Palin???  Honestly???  WTF were they thinking?

Do you guys think the Obama (not him directly but you know what I mean) should investigate Bush and his cronies for any number of their illegal and unethical acts or just let bygones be bygones.  I'm a little mixed.  On the one hand, we need to look forward and fix our country rather than be focused on grudges.  On the other hand, we didn't have to try war criminals after World War 2 either, but we did anyway and were right for doing so.

I would argue that every nation that is in a conflict commits some type of war crime or breaks some international law during the operation.  It is very difficult to control the actions of every soldier during a conflict, but the United States carries out the most ethical, law abiding military operations in the world.

The victims are owed the justice of trials for those who committed torture or ordered people to be "rendered" to countries where they were subsequently tortured.  I imagine that a "truth and reconciliation" process could be set up so that perpetrators and suspects could speak without fear of punishment.  Truth and reconciliation process was used after the end of the apartheid government in South Africa. 

Obama is an attorney and a former law school professor.  He surely has a better understanding of this than I do.  We will see his direction on this issue soon.  I wholly expect the right wing to cry "retaliation" for whatever Obama does with respect to these gross violations of civil rights and human rights.
