Just curious what you guys thought of the speeches last night.

I thought it was the best speech McCain had given all year. In fact if he had talked like that all year he might not have gotten creamed so bad on the electoral votes.

I was impressed with the unity theme of all three speeches (include GWB's speech this morning).

Wouldn't it be nice if all Americans rallied behind the new president elect and gave him the benefit of the doubt before they pack up and run for the hills to hide. In other words will McCain supporters here do what McCain asked them to do last night, and follow his example?
 
Senator McCain, top notch a real gentleman. Gracious in defeat. Agreed best speech all campaign.

President elect Obama, starting to down play expectations. Hinted at staying the course and going after terrorist.

Predient Bush, nice welcoming to the very exclusive club.

Yep, let's make this The United States again.

I have no choice I have to rally behind him.

But I think before you can ask Americans to give him a chance he needs to tell us how he is going to pay for all these increased spending. Taxing the rich, what is rich anyways, isn't going to get it done.

I will be more than happy to give him the chance and support him outside of official duties, I just want to know how this is going to work.

I am pretty sure it is going to be based on at least 2 primary things, one being to do what ever the government needs to do legislation wise to make sure that the US (private enterprize) does a JFK trip to the moon, or Manhatten like project to switch the US to as much alternative US based energy as possible in such a way that we create millions of new jobs here, building real equipment and installing real improvements to the energy grid (infrastructure) to kick start the economy here, and to get us off the 700 billion dollars a year of oil imports. $700 billion a year can go a long ways.

I also expect the changes in health care to remove (displace) the financial burden of health care costs at places like GM, where they are at a huge disadvantage with overseas companies because of the way we pay for health care and the way we price it. From what I have read, health care at big three is 20% of the cost of building US cars and trucks.

But I will let him tell us what the plan details are it develops.

I won't be surprised to see big oil companies switch and spend, invest a lot of their huge recent record profits in more alternative US based energy projects to get new investment tax credits, to avoid windfall profit taxes and carbon taxes, which should be a big boost to the economy.
