I voted for the loser, and it pains me to say this, but.....

To give the Devil his due:  If the intelligence of the campaigns was any indication of how their administrations were to be run, then I am glad the brilliance of Obama's new ideas have triumphed.  Obama is a great unknown, but he proved that youth can triumph over experience in many ways.....

McCain pulled some amazing bone headed maneuvers, and had he done those kinds of things over the next four or eight years, we might have been in deep doo doo, to say the least. We still may be, but ......

Country First!

That's all I'm sayin'.....

Simply put, when the economy tanked, McCain lost all
chance.  Now Obama has to deliver: can he do it without
raising taxes (probably not).  Will he give us all the new
programs he said he would (probably not).  Will the
wars in Asia end quickly (probably not).  But will this
be a very interesting four years, YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just to drop in for a sec to GLOAT  at Kerins (The Stock market is higher than ever under Bush) and his whacko buddy John Byrne (hope I got the name right been a while) who thought that William Ayers was the killer issue and never knew what AMT was....probably never will need to.

Suck it up boys!

To any others who voted for McCain, (Please don't take the above as directed at any other than those targeted) I say that he would have been a much more formidible candidate if he had only conducted his campaign with as much class as his concession speech AND not chosen that fishwife for VP. I think you are going to be happy with Obama...we need to give him some time to show us what he has...I think we will all be pleased.

To all my fellow Obama supporters....YEEEEEEHAW! America is back!

Adios and back into the sunset I ride!

President Elect Obama, unlike Jimmy Carter, is a very smart politician, and will likely govern from a center-left position disappointing the Moveon.org crowd. 
The current republican president is about as popular as the bubonic plague, the country is in virtual recession with an oil shock and financial panic in the past few months, McCain ran a poor campaign and didn't have a coherent theme to his disjointed policy plans and prescriptions, yet he still got 46% of the vote.  

In his speech last night Obama said he will also be President of those who didn't vote for him.  Well, I didn't vote for him but I wish him success.

   I have to admit that I'm thrilled with the election results. Most on this site remember the Freedom Riders, Selma, the church bombing that killed 4 young girls and too many other horrible things to mention.  The progress this country has made in the last 45 years is a testament to the people and the system under which we live. I always figured I'd see my reefer decriminalized before I saw a Black man as president. Now I'm hoping for a Black man to bring some sense to the draconian laws that have imprisoned far too many of the citizens of this country.

Yeah, besides wanting to walk around all day in a stupor what else would you change?

 Last night's " I Cannot Deliver Speech",  President-elect Obama hinted to his supporters that he may not be able to buy them gasoline or pay their rent. "There may be false starts".  What?  Now he tells them!  Considering Obama's tax plans,  we will  see capital flight and an export of employment.  Many in that crowd and elsewhere may lose their jobs. But not to worry,  when there is hope. And if you lose your job or retirement savings,  there will be change.  Russian president Dmitri Medvedev was so inspired by Obama's victory that he has ordered missiles to be deployed next to Poland's border. The next four years will be a left-wing journalists' dream and a nightmare for the  taxpaying middle-class.

The progress this country has made in the last 45 years might not be all it's cracked up to be. The fact that every person interviewed on the news since California was announced ( putting Obama over the top ) has cited only the fact that he is black. Not one "we are happy the best man won" , nothing but those "can't believe I lived to see it comments" all over the place. Seems to me the people of color are saying flat out they voted for him because he is black. Oprah , Jessie Jackson included. I'm sure his campaign for a time to change didn't just mean change the fact we have never had a black president. If this guy means the things he said the last 13 months he has to be embarrassed by the conduct and statements of his supporters.  

The press strived very hard , all the networks treated the subject as taboo , nobody was allowed to even hint that the election could boil down to a black white thing. People were afraid to talk about it. Now that it's over they seem to be making it a black white thing.


           He didn't win because he got the black vote. he won because he got the most votes. The black vote is still a minority vote in this country. People of all colors , all religions , all of our melting pot ethnic origins gave this candidate the nomination and the election to the most power full office in the world. It is a victory for America and our beliefs , our doctrines and stated goals that yes Virginia anyone can grow up to be President !!!!!

I agree.  I voted for McCain because I just felt Obama didn't have enough political experience and may have some issues because of it.  However, the winning margin was astounding and made a hard, direct statement about the desire for "change" he spoke of.  It was only a small issue of his background, as all races and ethnic groups were out in force voting for him.  Of course, no matter who won, they'll only be as good as the senate and congress will allow them to be.  I just hope, for everyone's sake, that the call for bipartisanship is real and has a chance to succeed.  Here we go, into the future....

I voted for Obama because he had Biden to back him up and take his place in case something happened to him. McCain has more experience IMO. But if something happened to him, I doubt if Palin could take over.

Greetings,

As someone at work said:  "Can Affirmative Action be dropped now?"  Before I could reply, someone else said:  "The ones that earned the right to affirmative action are either dead or retired now, so their grandchildren don't need it!"

Any response to these 2 statements?

Regards,

Greetings,

Two good things about Obama being elected:

1.) We will not have to worry about Hillary in 2012 and by 2016 she will be too old to run.

2.) Its about time that someone whose name ends in a vowel (not an 'i', or an 'o') got elected.

Regards,
Tom Militello '68
