Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Yep.

People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.

You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.

They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.

Very rarely is so much expectation laid to rest on one persons shoulders.

Obama will NEVER be able to live up to the expectations and hype of this circus of an election.

I feel sorry for the bloke.

Did these folks already forget that Mr Obama is mixed race, half white half black, so should it be called the mixed race house?
Really folks, you voted and got what you wanted, I hope he keeps his word and turns this Country around, just realize you will now have a Democrated president with a democrated house and senate, they will have no one to blame for any failures, when your taxes go up, that is those of us that acutually pay taxes remember you voted him in. I would like to share some info about our newly elected pres,
Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago ?
Body count:
In the last six months:
292 killed (murdered) in Chicago ;
221 killed in Iraq
Chicago.... Who Runs it:
Senators: Barack Obama & Dick Durbin
Rep: Jesse Jackson Jr.,
Illinois Gov: Rod Blogojevich,
Illinois House leader Mike Madigan,
Illinois Atty. Gen. Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike),
Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley (son of Mayor Richard J. Daley)
.....our leadership in Illinois .....all Democrats.
Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago .
Of course, they're all blaming each other!
Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
State pension fund $44 Billion in debt, worst in country.
Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country.
(Look 'em up if you want).
Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country.
This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois .
Amen brother, all of these important facts the media seem to leave out because most Americans are by far more worried about money than anyother thing. If it wasn't for the greedy whites vote we would in no way have a black president. Poverty crime and murder was kept out of this election because our cares are far from those issues. Take a look at the stock market right now and see were all your money is going white America!

Democrats = More taxes from the working mans pockets into the pockets of those that do nothing.

Most are too young to remember the Jimmy "peanut head" Carter days. 18% mortgage rates, double digit inflation, high unemployment, and every military event a disasterous debacle.3
I see the status quo for the TAX-O-CRATS contining under this new administration. The Change MORE TAXES on the working family.

Also amazing that Virginian's intentionally voted for a Senator, who as Governor raised taxes highest on Virginian's than any Republican Governor ever.

As my dad always told me - The Stupid shall be punished.

Where is Harry Truman when you need him?

You do know that some people didn't vote for Barrack because his is black? Just like I know some voted for him because he is. Some of us have to be "man" enough to admitt that they actually thought Barrack plan was good or somewhat better then McCain's but because he was black they didn't vote for him.

McCain ran a sh**ty campaign. Even when people at the rallies tried to tell him that we are tired of this country going socialist, he shut them up! When will the Republican party stop running these old farts just because they think they're rewarding them? I knew from the beginning he was just too old and too old looking to ever be considered a serious contender for President. And his constant smiling and pumping of arms was really off-putting. He just didn't care about US!

I have an American flag in the back yard and one in the front of my house. I have already taken down the one in front, and when my husband comes home from work I'm going to demand that he take down the one in back. Michelle may be proud of her country, but at this point, I certainly am not!

It's hard to get a positive message out when every media outlet except for Fox News is out to discredit you.If this election has taught us anything it is that journalistic integrity is the newest in a long list of oxymorons.The media is a bias liberial machine bent on pushing it's owner agenda on us.And the other is that P.T. Barnum was way off when he said that one was born every minute it's more like every second.
God help us all

Do you make less than 200 K per year, if not then be glad. I also find it ironic that the majority of people with 200K+ households voted for Obama knowing that their taxes would increase.

I am truly amazed how EASILY Mc Cain supporters state that they are "Not Proud of America"

You people that state that are phonies. Big FN Phonies.

These are the same clowns that have the Flags Up. Complain on Talk Radio day and night. Quickly label everyone else unAmerican.

But one election doesn't go your way. America is broken.

You people know NOTHING about fighting, or what it truly is to be an American. I'm glad this election exposed you people for the True Fake Phonies you really are.

God bless True Americans!!!!

You're mixing apples and oranges. One can be black and not be African-American. Black refers to an entire race it has nothing to do with your citizenship. Self-identification is a decision made by the individual.

Do you really think the people you overheard talking was serious? I have heard people joke about that same thing...it's a joke. I am SURE you didn't hear the whole conversation. Please don't go there. Also ther are some blacks who didn't vote because they didnt like either men, there are some blacks who voted for McCain. There are some people who thought it was two of the lesser evil and voted for McCain becaue he was white. So again dot go there.
