Since so many (whether here or via the national media) are currently deifying President Obama, I'd like to add some balance to the mix. Here are few Conservative Web resources I find helpful:

Town Hall: http://townhall.com/
American Thinker: http://americanthinker.com/
National Review online: http://nationalreview.com/
WorldNetDaily: http://worldnetdaily.com/

Any others?

Balance? World Nut Daily? Instead of spin, how about if we wait for facts and reality, Bill?

Who has deified Obama? Show me. Or is this just your opinion again, an opinion about people that has no basis in fact?

Geeze, I can't stand your smarmy attitude. But feel free to put it on display as often as you like.
To quote your words from another thread, "The preceding was brought to you by an American expressing his right to free speech."

I've seen, heard, and read enough hyperbolic statements about Obama that I stand by what I posted.

Tell me about "smarmy", please. What's wrong with my attitude?

Leftish websites display a respectable amount of spin. I can't think of (m)any websites that are completely neutral.

As far as facts and reality are concerned, I disagree with much of what Obama has said he stands for, and his veiled history concerns me.

If he turns out better for the country than I hope (given my Conservative pov), then that's fine with me. But I don't look forward to his term.

Bill

That your POV is absolute truth and any other POV is BS.

Both are just POV.s

the constantant railing against "the liberal media" which from my POV doesn't exist.

the constant complaining about liberals, especially at a band's website where the
founding members were pretty liberal.

for starters .

as far as the topic goes. I am liberal but not a fan of Obama. What I have seen
is not any deification, but the natural excitement about a victory and the possibilities
that change can bring.

You are so filled with hate for Obama that you can't stop with the sniping just
a day after inaguration.

My observation for what it is worth.

How about the constant bashing of Obama about his 'plans' before anything ever happened since the inauguration was yesterday? You "27 percenters" can't see the past 8 years (24 of last 36 years) for what they were yet are positive about all the bad things that are going to happen now.

27% ?

When asked about Mr. Bush’s performance over the last eight years, 22 percent of respondents said they approved. That matched Mr. Bush’s job-approval rating for much of last fall, the lowest of his presidency. In the current poll, 73 percent disapproved of his performance over the course of his two terms.

Aww, hell, Bill, relax. It's just day one. Shoot, it'll get around to returning the favor of calling you and all the other conservatives America-hating, terrorist loving traitors soon enough. I'm sure you'll enjoy being on the other end of that, huh?

Couple of sites that I go to and reflect a "true conservative" point of view, as opposed to a right wing, Republican point of view which in many cases in not the least bit conservative.

American Conservative - http://www.amconmag.com/
Patrick J. Buchanan - http://buchanan.org/blog/

Based on BarryO's past actions, associations, writings and senate voting history "bad things that are going to happen" is a pretty safe bet. It's too bad so many voters were so focused on the PAST (see post above) that they didn't give the future a serious thought. Had they done so we might not be facing what is indeed coming.

And I could say the opposite. I don't dispute your sincerity, but it seems to me there's more spin on the Left.

I agree with the first, have mixed thoughts on the second (where, then, should we detain these people?), and agree on the third -- they should be public record unless (and this is slippery, I'll admit) there are clear issues of national security.

For example, I disagree strongly with his views on abortion (this is a litmus test for me), since he's made it clear he believes in no significant restrictions. This was a factor in my voting for McCain (I was lukewarm about him) -- partly to vote against Obama.

I lean strongly toward Conservative (not necessarily Republican) with maybe a bit of Libertarian stirred in, so I want as little government in my life as possible. I realize we've gone so far down the road of Big Federal Government that this is probably a lost hope. But I still think the Constitution should be the standard for federal government "activities", and that much of what the feds have taken over should rightly be restored to the individual states.

Like it or not, Obama is my president. I disagree with him on most of fundamental issues and policies, and will try to watch him closely. But I'm not obliged to trust him, so I'll do what I can to keep an eye on him from the remote outpost of Minnesota.

He's been really clear about many of his beliefs, and most of them run counter to mine. Why should I support him?

As far as the bashing goes, I've disagreed with his positions, values, stances, and so on. Where have I bashed him personally? Can you defend your statement, or are you just twisting my words to justify your accusation?

What's that got to do with anything? We're far too close (in time) to his presidency. IIRC, Truman's numbers were way down when he left office, and they later changed. Now he's considered one of the better POTUSes. Check this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_rankings_of_United_States_President s .

A president has a greater obligation and responsibility to do what he considers right, than he has to maintain high numbers.

This is, sadly, what American politics is. There is not nor will there ever be a "post-partisan" era.
