Merry Change-mas?

The "Eve of Change", "Change Is Less Than 24 Hours Away", and "Change Is Coming To America".

I've heard those three phrases in the past day, more than I hear about that damn Husdon River Plane Crash. It's very annoying, even to me!

Let me break it down the way the mainstream media seems to NOT put it:

Obama is not God. He is not the Messiah. He is not a black man with a halo sent from the heavens to rid the United States of the last 8 years of bullshit we've had to endure. When he's sworn in, choirs will not sing, hate will not leave this country or this planet, the "War" will not magically end, shiites and sunnis won't be joining hands in harmony, the Dow Jones will not shoot up two thousand points in the next week, CEOs will not have an uncontrollable urge to donate their golden parachutes to the needy families who lost it all in the last few months, unemployment will not return from an almost 16-year high, and Hell, most certainly, will not freeze over. Well, maybe Hell, Michigan.

Obama, NAY, the US GOVERNMENT, has a lot of work ahead. While the word "change" does in fact carry some weight to it, that is, with a democratic president backed by a democratic majority in all the branches of government (unlike the last 8 years, where the Dems barely had a majority, especially in the Senate), I'm sure some sort of "change" will come. Hopefully, it's a change of policies: foreign, domestic, financial, etc. that benefit ALL US citizens of ALL creeds, political parties, ethnic backgrounds, and so on and so forth.

I do believe, however, that Barack Obama will have a very positive influence on how this country performs overall in the next 4 years and beyond. If he fails to do so, I will be the first to admit it.
