Is it just me or does everyone else feel worried about our children's future and the future of our country? I pray that Obama and the other liberals protect this country. I pray that there will be no more terrorist attacks on US soil. So many people were against the war, but would they rather the fighting happen in our own country? Terrorists target schools and other public places where our children play. My brother spent 1 tour of duty in Afganistan and 1 tour in Iraq. I guess all I can do is pray that Obama, and the other half of the country that voted for him, are right. That positive change will come?!?

Quoting Kirsten:

Obama has already said that the way to handle the conflicts in this world are through diplomacy. The terrorists are such reasonable, rational people, I can see why this is such a good idea! I think Obama is going to have his hands full here pretty soon. Scary yes, but we might need something scary to shake this country back to their senses. I hate to say that, but I'm afraid it might be the only thing that takes the stars out of the eyes of so many Americans!


I totally agree and I have a feeling it won't take long for that to happen.

I am worried.  We were attacked many times during the Clinton years and he didn't do anything to show he was really serious about protecting America.  9-11 happened in my opinion because Clinton showed the terrorists that they could get away with it.  They didn't plan on President Bush having the guts to go after them.  He did and did a lot of damage to the terrorist groups.  Obama doesn't have the guts to go after them and he already sent them a message by closing down gitmo and they do know what he said in his speeches.  He's a terrorists dream come true

I get the same feeling that it's going to get worse than 9/11 and that's saying a lot. I remember being really shook up over it. Hope for the best but expect the worst.

Isn't it interesting we forget the tragedies and horrors of the Clinton Administration when we focus on 9/11. We forget about the World Trade Center 1993, Waco, Oklahoma City, and Columbine, just to name a few. I am more concerned of the over reaching government agencies, domestic terrorism, and violent crime that we encountered under the Clinton Administration, with which President Obama seems enamoured to glean experience. ~ Lisa

It's not just you! Most republicans I know are scared that we will have another terriost attack on our soil only this time it will be worse than 9/11.



My husband told me yesterday that we had more terriost attacks on our soil and abroad during Clintons term than during any other Presidents. The fact that Obama has brought back alot of these people make me wonder even more what is ahead for out country.

Actually, I think the terrorists just might to hold off for awhile. We have now showed them how we are capable of self-destruction!

My son is only 5 months old, but already I'm wondering if I should home school him (And I'm studying to be a teacher!). I want our country to be safe, but I fear that we are going to be "tested" and will experience something worse than 9/11. President Obama has just signed a decree to close GTMO in a year. What are we going to do with these terrorists that are determined to kill us?
