Proves there is hope for the country after all.
God help us all.
And that's one thing we need.
Hope that he does as he campaigned. Govern from the middle and reach across the aisle.
Hope he's not as liberal as he was in Illinois and in the Senate.
You will need it!
Hey the election is over, alot of bad blood has been brewed over this. Time to move forward fro everyone no matter how you voted or endorsed. We need to stand united and help this country turn around and rebuild!
What an inspiring speech, quite a contrast in personalities.
You done good, America!
YES WE DID!
Congrats go to the Obama team for a campaign well done!
Thank you to the american voting public who weathered the storm of "slash and burn" politics and made your vote count.
A landslide was predicted and a landslide occured.
President Obama has shown us all what hard work and dedication can do for an average american of color.
He is an inspiration for all americans. His ability to bring people together and stand up for whats right in a period of wrong is unmatched by any other president.
America is reborn tonight. The world is watching and the United States is the winner.
The world will be a better place with Barack H. Obama as Commander in Chief.
Congratulations President Barack Obama.
I could not agree more!
The best thing that I can say about Obama is that he was, by far, the lesser of two evils that were offered up to us.
Unfortunately...and I pray that I am wrong here...I think that it will be Joe Biden who takes the oath of office in January, a week or two after attending Obama's funeral. I am afraid that Obama is going to get whacked by some white supremacist neo-nazi nut job sometime between now and Inauguration day. The Secret Service had better bring their "A" game to the table if they want to keep him alive.
Its a sad day in American politics when the electorate votes to include the government in more of their lives instead of less of it. This despite the fact the government manages to screw up just about everything it gets into. All I have to say to those of you who supported this man will get exactly what you have asked for. You see, I don't hold conservative ideals because I believe its best for me. I hold these ideals because I know it benefits everyone across this great nation. Socialism doesn't benefit everyone, it only benefits those who are the least productive of our society. Our country is heading into some uncertain times with untested leadership. I just hope our country can weather the storm in order to bring conservative ideas back to the forefront on the national political arena.
I believe he just did.
Our prayers have finally been answered, thank you Lord!
Without Hope, we aren't human.
Life is all about hoping.
I dont agree with a number of Obama's policies.
That being said, I believe him to be a sincere and honorable man.
What I do know is that our country simply cannot survive 4 more years of a Republican administration. I also know that, statistically speaking, it would be a coin flip as to whether or not a 72-yr old Mccain would even live through his first term...leaving the presidency to a religious extremist nut job with no foreign policy experience other than having seen the coastline of Russia across the Bering Strait.
You have to admit, he does inspire our best.
We should all hope that America has truly been blessed in this time of need in our country.
It doesn't seem as though you are afraid as you claim, it is as thought you hope it happens..I hope the moderators see your post and banish you from even thinking this RADICAL ideal!
You are nuts!
What part of " I hope and pray that I am wrong" are you incapable of understanding?
I AM afraid. Look at what happened to JFK...to RFK....to MLK...and to Abraham Lincoln. Like Obama, they were great men who promised change. They were murdered for their beliefs. I hope Obama isnt murdered for his.
As far as the moderators seeing this post and "banishing" me for thinking of a "radical idea"....did I just wake up in China or North Korea? Is this George Orwell's "1984"? I have a fear and an opinion and I expressed it. I thought that the free exchange of thoughts and ideas is what this forum was made for.
One can be banned for 'free exchange of thoughts' here.
