Obama Wins


Recommended Posts

:-D I pray Obama has the incredible level of courage and wisdom to lead the people of the USA on to greater things.

I found this picture today on the Age website inspirational. Martin Luther King Jr is a hero of mine and it is wonderful his sister lived to see his words come true, if I can paraphrase - that all men are judged not by the color of their skin but by the contents of their character.

I'm sixty-one, and I come from a very political family. My maternal grandfather was a Congressman from West Virginia for twenty-eight years. My paternal grandmother was the administrative assistant to Earl Warren when he was Governor of California.

When I was younger, I worked in the U.S. Capitol as an aide to Congressman Wright Patman of Texas. Later, I served in the U.S. Supreme Court as personal assistant to Chief Justice Earl Warren. I was with him and the other Justices on the day that John Kennedy was assassinated. Needless to say, I have followed politics closely my entire life, and participated actively in numerous campaigns.

Why am I relating this? So you'll know that I mean it when I say that the election of Barack Obama is the most significant political event of my lifetime. This is a watershed event in the history of America.

I think this is the dawn of a new US, a better one, more democratic, more equal and more human. Not only is the US saved, but also the rest of the world.

You f##ed up four years ago, but now you did the right thing.

(I belong to the conservative party in sweden, the news paper I read is one of the most conservatives and sometimes a bit more then me, 91% of there readers wanted Obama, 3% wanted McCain...)

This is indeed a dark day.

For David Letterman.

What the hell is he going to do now .

I always used to look forward to his "Great moments in Presidential speeches "

It was always a hoot to see how Bush could stuff up a two word sentance.

Be proud America you once again have a man with a Presidential air about him.

A man who can speak with authority and wisdom.

A man of the people.

More equal & democratic? You tell me sir what other country on this planet has a more liberal & open door policy than the US?

More human? really? how much more human than the trillions of dollars in aid should WE provide across the globe?

And explain to me how WE f#cked up 4 years ago??

We live in a F#@ked up world...you don't have to be a genius in Geopolitics to figure that out. When has your country ever had the balls to step up to the plate?

What's done is done, many Americans are in for a lot of misery with Obama behind the wheel. It amazes me how so many are obscured by the fact that we have a young African American candidate running for President. A monumental and historic accomplishment yes, but I cannot understand how anyone in their right mid could overlook his past, his political and social views and utter lack of experience.

I've read his book, I've learned enough of his history to understand that He is a super-liberal and a far left radical he is a man with NO redeeming qualities w-h-a-t-s-o-e-v-e-r as the President of the United States. Jimmy Carter is a joke compared to what this guy is going to do.

I'm done with this thread.

I proudly voted for John McCain, and I wish the election had turned out differently. Having said that, this is a truly historic moment, for my country and the world.

I wish President-elect Obama the best, and I will pray that he has the wisdom and strength necessary to lead in this crazy world. We will now find out if there is substance underneath all of that style. I hope for all of our sakes that there is.

How the hell can you sit there and not see that Bush was the biggest joke on the world stage.

Every single time he opened his mouth he would embarrass not only himself but your country.

The last two presidencies have done nothing but drive your country into the ground.

My Mother in Law who lives in Missouri was taken off her safety net that helped pay for her heart medication all because the government thought that the 2 measly dollars that she made per month over the allowed amount warranted throwing her out on her own.

Perhaps you need just a little social thinking.

I'm not talking about communism , I'm just talking about some compassion for your fellow American.

Don't be afraid of change and give a man a chance to prove himself.

Experience isn't everything. Look where the experience of the Bush Presidential dynasty got you.

This is truly a historic day. Congratulations to Senator Obama.

I worry about his social policies and the impact upon business and the economy.

I worry that he got his start here in Chicago, city of corruption. There are, after all, "pipers" to pay

I worry that we will just see a shift from one platform of wasteful spending and pork barrel projects to another that will be based upon social programs and "green" initiatives.

God help us and guide this man to make the right choices. I think we can finally put the race issue behind us and am proud that so many supported him, although he has no track record of accomplishments so I am not sure why.

I'll shut up now.

Hear Hear!

I'm proud of my country for breaking the barrier it did yesterday. It is a momentous occasion.

I have some concerns about how the Obama Administration will do things, and some of the policies it will pursue. For different reasons, my discomfort with a McCain administration would have been at least as strong.

I won't miss political ads. Of that I am sure...

Glad to see you have maturity of a 13 year old. Sorry, I stopped having email battles a while ago. Take care and leave the country if you so wish.
