You sir, have a sense of humour.
What’s the general sentiment towards the elections in the UK? In favour of Obama I assume?

Heavily in Obama’s favour, both here and in Europe as a whole. As you probably know the Bush administration’s policies have been just as unpopular abroad as they have at home, and like the people who’ll be actually casting votes a lot of us are looking for new leadership in the US that will be as far from Bush, politically speaking, as possible.
I’ve been following the proceedings closely since the start of primary season and personally I think Obama is the best candidate I’ve seen for high office in my lifetime, on either side of the Atlantic. It’s just a shame he’ll be fighting uphill from day one if he is elected after 8 years of disastrous economic, social and foreign policy.

a lot of americans are not too keen on becoming a socialist state. we are not entitled to everything as mr obama would have you think. some of us are willing to work hard for a living…

It’s funny that Bush the most conservative presidents that I have ever known ends his time by doing one of the most socialists acts!
I lived in the US for a couple of years and still can’t get my head around some of the ‘business ideals’. You have ‘nationalised” / “public” universities, schools and firefighters (things that you are rightly proud of), yet are scared to death of the government taking a stake in the banks; even when you have just been screwed for a few trillion dollars!
Socialist state? Did he announce he was going to nationalize private industry while I wasn’t paying attention?
The socialist tag is provocative but hardly accurate. Even his healthcare policies are centrist by the standards of most of the rest of the world and I doubt even the most rabid conservative thinks that system is anything other than severely broken. Don’t even get me started on fiscal policy.

I’m a Brit living here (since 1995) and although I can’t vote as I’m hanging on to my UK badge there are many, many Republicans that are changing sides this time.
Even some of the “older” Republicans have had enough and are deserting – many of the older folks won’t say they are voting for Bazza but they are….
Personally I’d like to see the equivalent of Prime Minister’s Question Time over here – great comedy and intuitive at the same time
