An historic moment to be sure. I wonder if President Lincoln could have even imagined such a day as he worked for the freedom of slaves in this country.
As a nation, we should be very proud!

The economy won’t improve until housing prices reach their true economic value, without interference from government programs. I don’t understand your statement, “can’t bear to see my home get taken away, but at this current rate, i’d be out of a home in a year!” Does that mean your mortgage balance will be higher than your home value? If so, it doesn’t mean you can or should stop paying your mortgage. If the payments are increasing, did you bother to understand the terms before you signed? Were you just a stupid speculator? Did you think prices could continue to escalate 20% per year? You are probably one of the naive younger voters who put Oblahblah in office. This will all be a very big, painful lesson for you, but in another 10 years or so you should be OK. It will suck for you in the meantime, however.

There won’t be any quick fixes and I don’t think he can emphasize that enough to the American people. Change takes time. Certainly, the mess that the country is in took a long time to fix and I sincerely hope that nobody expects the new president to fix it simply by the flick of his wrist and the signing of a new bailout plan. Obviously I realize that the vast majority of people are intelligent enough to realize that this is not realistic. At the same time, I hear comments from others that makes me worry. Obama is not Jesus. He’s just a man. He’s not a miracle worker. He was not born in a manger. He, alone, can’t fix this mess. And even with a battalion of geniuses and experts, CHANGE IS GOING TO TAKE TIME…But then again, everybody knows that, right?

I’m from China. First, I would like to congratulate Mr. Obama for becoming President of United States of America on behalf of the People’s Republic of China. Moreover, I hope Mr. Obama will do something helpful to improve the relationship between USA and China. I believe you are the second Mather Luther King Junior, Mr. Obama! Many thanks!

They are going to take over a mess of a country and I hope the first thing they do is stablize the housing market. It keeps going down and down some more each month. I can’t bear to see my home get taken away, but at this current rate, i’d be out of a home in a year!
