I agree that McCain gave a very genuine and really quite wonderful parting speech. Where was THAT McCain during the election?

As a Canadian I actually feel a sense of pride for the US...it is time for a change and I really hope that Obama is true to his word. I would have voted for him


Well done, I can't wait to hear his speech! Wonder if it will be as spine tingling as watching JFK speak?? (I wasn't there but even watching old footage is amazing!!)

Mcain did give a great speech. The crowd was a bit much though. Palin was crying. Obama should be making his speech soon!!

Sarah Palins face right now: Priceless



McCain just in these minutes won a little sympathy from me, how he's handling the booing crowd and standing his man is honarable. Best speech from his mouth ever, but when Obama comes out it going through the roof.


Great Post! I'll have to watch the vid of his speech once it's posted.
Sarah must have been the one egging on the rowdy people I heard in
the background while John was conceding.

Congratulations America. You have shown the rest of the world you can finally see beyond race, and elect based upon ideals only. Not all of you agree with Obama, i know especially there is a large Republican base on here, but this guy promises immense change, and respect again for America in the rest of the world.

Now, Obama had better be the best darned President they've ever had.

McCain was very gracious and gave an excellent speech and it was clear that it was from the heart... if he had presented himself that well during the campaign... the results might have been different.

Well, I'm not exactly sure why my thread was closed when a Super Moderator closed this thread and directed them to mine, but if my thread closure is the result of eventual coordination, I don't mind.

As I said in my thread, I'm not sure what to make of this. All the conspiracy theories out there pointed to something happening to Obama losing, and we all knew he would win, but when it happens...

What the heck!?!?

I start a thread about it, it gets closed by a mod and they point me to another thread where I'm told that this is the right place!

Make up your dang minds!!!

Anyway, so Obama got elected, did anyone seriously doubt this would happen?

I heard Obama talking about some sorta civil army or something, so now he's the new dictator of the United States, one more step towards the NWO.

Last time I heard though, Obama had just 197, McCain had 155, 333 is a big jump there if that's true.

Well in Nevada, Obama received two more votes. One from me and one from my girlfriend.


You are standing next to a picture of JFK and you voted for Obama?

Obama will not stand up to the Federal Reserve and the international bankers the way that JFK did.

JFK was a true American hero, Obama is just another puppet for the bankers.

When my kids ask me where I was and what I was doing on this historic day,I will gladly say I was in my room getting totally wasted kissing my country goodbye wondering where my country that I use to love so much went.

So with that said.....lets all enjoy the ride to hell.


See ya all there lol.

Indeed, the poor guy was pushed too far into the extremes by his party. If, like the BBC coverage i am currently watching says, he presented his campaign as the centrist he actually is, instead of the die hard republican he was presented as in this campaign, then maybe the result would have been slightly closer.

I want to take a chance to say something now that the election results are official.

I have spent many years now listening to how the msm media (whatever that includes) was so leaning in Obama's favor. In the light of tonight's results maybe this explains why that was. Maybe the media is only an extention of the public conciousness. I think alot of us would agree that the media basicly would exhibit what the vox populi would listen to, or what they will buy. If the media had an Obama preference it was because it was the obvious outcome.

As far as I have been able to discover the msm is for the most part owned by wealthy conservatives. I don't know where you work but everwhere I have ever worked it was the boss that had the final say of the driving thought within that corporation. We know Fox is horribly left and that with the exception of Morning Joe and Buchanan, MSNBC is very left but AM radio, except in the most Progressive of areas is almost entirely far right. AM radio (Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannady, (lately))

The support we saw in this campaign, the influence of "Joe The Plumber" was from that massive media far right influence. The opposition I have already seen posted against the revival of the fairness doctorine,(on this board) is a perfect example. If the media is so left biased, why would you oppose the established of a fairness doctorine that said that both sides get equal exposure? Is it really because if it is equal exposure the right will have to share the air time with the left? Isn't getting equal exposure to both sides our best hope of denying ignorance?

It is my prayer that both sides will lay down the past and look to the future. It isn't about God, or abortion, or socialism, just about making the United States of America a country that stands for what is right and what should be admired. A country that will stand up for a country in peril and use it's might in righting an injustice and not just a country that would use an injustice to further the avarice of some of it's leaders.

I will be watching what the democrats due with the faith that our country has trusted them with. They have been handed a shredded shambles of a country. I don't expect them to perform miracles, but I expect them to really try.

That's my .02 worth, I am glad that Obama won and I really hope that my country (first) can repair it's face in our world.

America evolved in terms of racism. That's the only thing that this election proves.

It proves that they still don't understand the NWO and understand enough about the world to break out of the two parties BS.

More NWO, with now more steam behind it.

Hopefully democrats will wake up once Obama starts another war with Pakistan or Iran. Or there's another inside job. Or he starts taking guns and we see Waco types burning of families like the Clinton administration did.

If he does the right thing, I will apologize. Until, then, he's as good as Bush or McCain, a lying piece of trash.

I say Congrats too!!!
I really hope that aside from the clean up of everything: economy,war,etc...that he can implement some of his plans for the country.

I do think McCain isn't a bad guy and he truly looked like his speech was genuine. I think he is relieved not to be President in a way....


Its time for all of us to come together for once(not in times of tragedies) and fix our system and country....I know we will never agree on everything but its time to try to fix the things we have in common...


That will not only be change from Obama but from ourselves, within..

This is great not only for Barack Obama, this is great for America, too. It's a dream come true for him. And speaking of Dreams, another great American, who is also a great African-American, once "had a dream." That African-American is Martin Luther King. It's just too bad that he is not here physically to see this happen. We are now poised to make that dream of his a reality. I'm sure he's looking down on us, smiling.
