    1st strike – nobama paid for the presidency
    2nd strike – MSM was completely in favor of nobama, against mccain
    3rd strike – over 65 milllion people fell for this obama clown

    To all the bitter and angry people posting on here with there continuing rhetoric about Obama.Why is it they just don't understand that along with the terrible 8 years of Bush politics and the continuation of this hatred and bickering is exactly why the people have had enough and all there voices were heard on Nov the 4th.
    They need to get over themselves and unite and stand together for the better of this country.My fear is that this will never stop and this will just be the lingering attitude of most of the republican party and they will fight him tooth and nail.
    We must unite and pull this great country out of the terrible mess that has festered over the last 8 years.We have a new strong leader that is for change in america and we must give him that chance.He will only be as good as the people that stand behind him.
    If we watch his back I'am sure it is in his heart to watch ours.We the people of this great country need to unite and stand up together for america!
    Be strong america!

    The happiest thing in this photo is the Oval Office itself: finally freed of 8 years of stupidity, negligence and mismanagement.

    Our country's nightmare is almost over!

    Obama to the rescue! Finally, some common sense leadership.

    Just what this great nation needs!

    Bush is the gracious existing President. How exciting to see the nations' first black president-elect in the oval office.

    oh my gosh! wow! This pictures it tells so much! It tells ...

    well ..

    actually ...

    I think people are reading too much into this picture, especially considering that in the span of said hour, both men probably crossed, uncrossed, recrossed their legs, shifted postions multiple times, leaned in, leaned away.

    The only thing we get from this picture is that Obama and Bush did in fact meet in the oval office – which in my opinion is way, way, way to beige
