Not since Thomas A. Edison.

Messiah? No, I don't think that's it at all. So many citizens are just relieved to see the back side of Bush and his band of village idiots.

When the worlds most powerful man calls you, why not go?
Even if you don't like his politics, he is still the president. Ive could learn him a thing if Obama is interested.

Obama = 96% approval rating in Sweden \

Its funny, everyone bemoans the current government but whats the alternatives? No wonder apathy is so high, all of the candidates are as feckless as each other.
