    Now that Obama has been elected, there will be no more idiocy on this site. The lions will lie down with lambs. Or kids. The dumb will pass tests.

    Now I grant that Obama may have the kind of brains we have not seen since Lincoln or Washington, and the kind of charisma and personal appeal we have not seen since Kennedy.

    But the question is: Will his magic, his power, be strong enough to cleanse LPSG of the lunatic nutcases who lurk around the corners, seeking someone to devour, seeking some unsuspecting face they can throw up on, to relieve themselves of all that hateful, hidden spleen that keeps them going?

    The die-hard "I HATE LIBERALS" fascists? the brain dead Fox lovers? the guys who are still hard over Sarah Palin?

    My question is: Will Obama be powerful and strong enough to defeat them? Win them over?

    If so, how will he do it? Can you think of specific LPSG members who might need an Obama intervention addressed directly to them, before they can wake up and become human beings?

    If so, can you name the member, and say what Obama would say or do?

    Eh, I'm sure they'll have some material, Obama isn't the Messiah.
    I actually watched Bill O'Reilly say he messed up not holding Republicans responsible for the economic crisis and he'll be fair, but now plans to speak truth to power during Obama's presidency...

    Anyway, does this mean DcDeep and BBucko will return? :fingersx:

    I have lived in Illinois my whole life, and I know all too well what Obama is about and what he says.

    If all the idiots leave, there won't be many people left. You see, there are idiots in all areas of the political scene.

    Do you remember the Clinton years? The Right Wing pursued him to Pluto and back. Remember Kenneth Star? Remember White Water? Jennifer Flowers? White House Travel Office? Losers never go away. They dogged him throughout his presidency. So don't expect the rabid base to go away.

    i am sorry, did you say that there has not been a president in 143 years that Obama was not smarter than? Obama is a very smart and charismatic man, but crowning the most intelligent president since Lincoln with no comparison is just a bit much before he has even taken office.

    how can you even hope to qualify that. with a few exceptions, such as Bush2 and Reagan, there have been some obscenely intelligent presidents since 1865.

    as for charisma and personal appeal, Bill Clinton came between JFK and Obama, and he had a tremendous amount of charisma and appeal. He brought forward the "Change" mantra 12 years before Obama was a senator.

    On the intelligence side, Bush Sr. (Phi Betta Kappa @ Yale, graduated in 2.5 years) Clinton (Rhodes Scholar), Nixon (nondescrpit upbringing, but aruthlessly intelligent man, for all his many flaws) Eisenhower (Hid behind the cowboy, shitkicker label but was regarded as one of the smartes most crafty and brilliant leaders ever), Coolidge (who used to translate Dante because he found it "fun" and wrote all his own speeches), Hoover (an engineer who attended Stanford), Theodore Roosevelt (historian, naturalist, explorer, author who wrote 35 books on a variety of topics, soldier) Taft (Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, 2nd in his class at Yale) Woodrow Wilson, were exceptionally intelligent individuals.

    let's dispense with calling Obama the smartest president since Lincoln till he actually does something, shall we?

    Obama is an exceptionally intelligent, charismatic leader, whose intelligence i hope will serve us well in the years ahead...but let's not get hysterical just yet.

    The smearing of the president elect and the liberals will never stop.

    This is just the beginning
    , the conservatives will be watching their right wing blogs like hawks so that they can start new malicious threads.

    Ledroit - petition the mods to open a new forum called 'Liberals Only.' This way you and the extreme left LPSGers can mindlessly exchange socialist ideas in the absence of any economic reality, balance or rational input.

    While you're at it, can you implement a basic educational denominator for those who continue to post on the 'Politics' forum? That is, a type of crash-online course of basic political knowledge and a pinch of history, possibly?

    You're just really into this idea of separatism, aren't you? We're not moving to a new forum, we're not moving to new states. If you want to move elsewhere, we won't stop you.

    Umm, I was providing a suggestion for the OP's plea that all conservatives disappear so the liberals are free to worship their hero without incident or distraction.

    Patients of insane asylums (with internet access) from around the globe can assimilate in the "liberals only" forum, while productive members of society can continue to exchange healthy ideas under the Politics forum.

    Of course, they'll have to stop once Barry Hussein raises their taxes sooooooo high they can't pay their internet bills, and then we loonies can take over the forum with our free socialized marxist wireless access and build a cult to our Messiah.

    Q: What's the difference between starinvestor and a pitbull?

    A: Nobody laughs when a pitbull attacks.

    it seems to me after reading these post that most of these people have not even listened to anything the President elect has said. Listen to what he has to say not what you want too hear. he has very clearly stated that the devisiveness must stop and we must be able to talk about our ideas in a civilized manner. Calling people "Idiots" for having legit misgiving about policy is childish and counter productive. Does anyone in this forum really think it was a good idea to give people mortgages when they most likely could not afford them? Was there any real discussion about this before hand ? or was anyone who oppossed it called a "Racist". And by the way, the Conservatives are well aware of what they are going to hear coming out of the capital for the next two years ,Its the The Liberals that need to brace themselves for the shock of things they are about hear from the new administration. Me gets the feeling that they may be blindsided by their "messiah"

    Well... the conservatives on this forum are not idiots. They are beholden to a particular mindset and subscribe to a particular philosophy. I blame Ayn Rand for everything.

    I fear that they are gonna have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century though.

    That should be one of Obama's new directives... "No Right Winger Left Behind"
