He gave a great speech. I'm so happy he is our president :)

I agree. I think that these are extraordinary times and am so glad to have someone so intelligent and calm at the helm. The only time I can remember this country feeling so much like it was coming apart at the seams, was during the late sixties. There are some parallels to now, but I am heartened that at least we ended up with Obama, instead of McCain, as president.
I don't think Obama walks on water, but that he does have the temperament required and sees the long view in regards to creating policy and governing. He doesn't think in 24 hour news cycles or sound bites, which I think serves us better as a country.

I am slow to second guess his decisions, because I know he has a plan. He is doing an awesome job. I am worried about the tax cuts for the very rich because I'm afraid it will bite us in the butt in a couple of years. He knows what he is doing though. Look how much he accomplished so far! Welcome!
