That's what I thought too.

But, later as the votes were counted, even the states that were called earlier, went to Obama, or to McCain.

And it also depends on which media you were watching.

Some media election coverage people were updating the votes often, and, others weren't.

While technically well written, the victory speech seemed a little lackluster.

I'm not sure what you're getting at with your first question, or maybe I just misread it. Elections if they aren't particularly close have always been decided 'early' IE before all ballots are counted. Obama had the electoral count by a landslide, McCain really didn't have a chance.

It is going to be lackluster, the administration before him has been writing hot checks for a long time. Noooooone could fix this over night.

Now that Obama is President-Elect, I will no longer go to bed feeling save. I will worry about the safety of my family, my children, and my children's children.

I worry about what rights will be taken away from me and mine.

If you all wanted Bush out and no McCain, why not choose ANYONE other than Baraq Hussein Obama?

May you all live to see the Dawn! (Prince said it, I took it with a whole new meaning.)

If anything, you should feel safer.

Quite honestly, I've had a lot of hate that I was harboring towards the US completely melt away today. There's lots to be done, and the US is still a sole hyperpower, but I think you'll find the world has taken a collective sigh of relief.

I have no opinion about the Bilderburg group, or the NWO. But Obama being good for the world? Who cares about the rest of the world. The President's first concern is and should be America!, to hades with the rest of the world.

Not to beat off topic somewhat, but does anyone else in this country think it is wrong to keep reffering to Barrack Obama as an African American when it is widley known that he is half white and that he was raised by his white mother and grandparents and has met his father only once!

First mixed race President! YES

First African American President? NO

note: this post is not meant to bash Obama! I like him! and he was my choice.

PEACE

Obama 2009 = Jimmy Carter 1977

Somehow a zero experience slimeball Chicago politician lawyer with terrorist connections that couldn't pass a TS/SBI got elected.

Leftist socialism is taking over. The welfare state is back. Redistribution of wealth to those who didn't pay tax in the first place. Just like the bailout where the weak failed first and we bailed them out, and we let the strong fail later.

Buy ammo, food, horde cash. Defend the constitution. The hole is being dug deeper.

I'm not sure why this topic qualifies for Above Top Secret, since the entire world is aware of the election of Obama. I guess Above Top Secret is a general forum for anything and everything. Right?

You get caught up in the whole hoo-rah around it, i was watching some of the elections coming in late last night (i'm in England) and my mam even woke me up about 6 this morning and said "Obama's Got It" with a big smile on her face. I could feel a sense of relief from myself aswell. We'll just have to hope that relief will be well founded.

My congratulations to the US, you voted for a change and a new beginnig after many troubled years. I hope all of you will have the strength and the cool-headedness to help a man giving a whole country a new feeling of unity and pride.
Now as Obama is elected, its more important to encourage your president than to perpetuate the electoral campain.
The whole world is looking at your country now, go for it guys! Take your chance!

i'm SICK and TIRED of these bloody SHEEPLE baaaaaaing in celebration of this bloody puppet who promises to bring 'change'..

here we have a man who works for global financial elites and he uses the word 'change' .. what change are you expecting? exactly... has anyone who voted for this man even read his policies, or just watched him spin lies on tv?

the only change he'll bring is that which George Bush was bringing. I'm dreading the day that this man gets all these gullible people to accept the police state, and sign away their freedom. Change? no, please no.

America you want real change for the better? make a start by getting off your couch and cease believing lies given to you by a puppet.

I'm glad Obama got elected, but this really changes nothing in the big scheme of things. Obama took more campagin donations than McCain, and probably a large chunk of it from the same rich people. As per usual, he is expected to repay his debt in some form.

Also America is in some deep #e, and I doubt one or two presidential terms is enough to fix even half of these problems. Even if he were the guy we all hope him to be. People are going to be disappointed because they have too big expectations.


However I'm happy to see people are being more optimistic again. It's all good.

That's really cool... and I didn't even have to vote this election!

When the euphoria wore off (it wasn't all that powerful a feeling), I realized them aliens were still in my head. I realized that I still have keep my mouth shut or folks are gonna try to tell me that I'm crazy.

I still don't feel that I'll survive if I try to buy another bus ticket at the Cleveland Greyhound Station (last time they dragged this single black guy into a back office and tortured him).

So, I guess some things change... and some things just don't. Oh, well.
