Dear Mr President,

Congratulations on winning the 2008 election, the people of the United States made a choice, blah blah blah.
I have constructed several albatrosses for around your neck, so that at least one will match any color of suit you choose.
My only regret is that I didn’t make them bigger.

Regards,
George Walker Bush

It’d be like being made captain of Titanic an hour after the iceberg hit.

So what are you suggesting…jumping ship? Or maybe just leaving it to another incompetent w**ker to worsen the situation for another 8 years?

Seriously – what do you suggest farnarkler?

No he can’t. The US car industry is on its’ knees, the poor get ever poorer and the pensions debt gets bigger by the second. America is on the verge of bankruptcy.

I feel sorry for Obama

Don’t. I believe if anyone can do it – he can. He’s very inspiring, which is exactly what the Americans need across their nation.

I feel sorry for Obama. All the poor in America are thinking he’s their knight in shining armour who’s going to drag them out of poverty. Wrong!! He’s inheriting a pretty shitty economic position and he, like the last few presidents, will be owned by US big business who will be calling in the favours guaranteed by donations to the Democrats.

Obama, Clinton, Bush, Reagan…….

They’re all paid by the same people.

It has been important on many levels, I think.

Russia is in many ways more a third world country than a superpower.

In some ways they were looked after better under the socialist regime, but the priority given to matching US spending on space and arms has created a lot of poverty for the Russian people.

However, the rise of capitalism has also created a climate where the mafia is thriving like weeds.

But overall I would have to say the change has been good. Summer camps which were once used to indoctrinate children are now used for holiday and recreation, more cultural exchange is taking place, and ordinary people have opportunities they could never have dreamed of before.

Sorry, i withdraw the statement about Russia having designs on the rest of the world.
