so as we grow up we learn all about the presidents past and present ones.
however i dont understand why everyone is making such a big fuss about our new president.
ok so hes the first black president...good for america for not judging a man on his race but does he really deserve all the attention yet?
im not against him and not nessacarly for him either he wasnt my vote but he is still our president and does deserve respect and should get the benafit of the doubt till he does wrong.
I just dont think we should all be warshiping the ground he walks on yet?

People were disillusioned and disgusted with the former administration. Many saw the Bush administration as a group of old men who cared only about the money lining their wallets who put beneficial programs in place only for big oil / big business. Nothing was done for the little guy, Joe public. I don't think people are worshipping the ground Obama walks on, I think people are ready for a change, a BIG change, and they are hoping against hope that he and his administration will bring that change to make a better USA for the whole population, not just the few rich that Bush concentrated on.

Why would one sit back and wait for any politician. Shouldn't you question, hold them accountable to their campaign promises(the reason why you voted for them, right?). They are elected to do a job, it is OUR RESPONSIBILITY to ensure they work for us. Questioning and holding accountable is what WE as concerned Americans should do, isn't it? If you sit back and waiting, what good does that do for the nation? Other than allow politicians a free pass to do as they wish.
