Their candidate lost, get over it!

Over the last few weeks since his inaugauration, I have heard quite a few very negative remarks about Barack Obama and his policies. And all I have to say is this: The candidate they wanted lost and they should get over it.
We are less that a month into the new administration, so at least I think that it is much too early judge whether Obama is a failure as President. We have been blowing 10 to 12 billion dollars a month for years rebuilding the infrastructure over in Iraq, wouldn't the money be better spent rebuilding our own?
Schools, especially in the area where I live, have been struggling for money for years. Yet, at the same time, we have the resources for building schools in Iraq. Personally, I would rather have that money used here to improve our own education system, which is a joke.
Rebuilding our own infrastructure and education system are two of the main focuses of the Economic Recovery Act. Construction engineers and laborere who have been layed off and furloughed will be able to get jobs. Truck drivers will be needed to deliver the materials needed for these projects. Not to mention the money they will be spending here.
All this fear mongering has to end some time.
