I have to say, superb post and best use of a metaphor I've ever seen.


And also, thanks to our friends oversees for their congrats, we know most of the world wanted him because he was the guy that could possibly repair our broken alliances and fix our shattered standing in the international community. We're all the same race, we need to start putting aside our differences and start working towards a better world. Hopefully it's a dawn of a new era and a turn for the better. Speaking as a north carolinian who voted for him and helped him win this very republican state, I am stunned and proud.

Hi there,

Frenchman here, yep congrats & most of us here are happy to see Obama as the new president of the US of A.

African Americans deserved it, he made it happen and it sure wasn't easy I guess. I just hope people will now realize that it is not the colour you are "wearing" that matters but what is inside.

Now and even so I am happy about this elections, let's not forget that presidents have limited power, their campaign sponsors want their money back.

Nothing is free.

Good luck America, we love you and I hope racism will take a step back...

I might be dreaming but still, why not ?

EDIT : I want to add that I am a right winger in my country, not a socialist.



Cheers,
Europa aka Buck

Congrats to Barack Obama, perhaps now with his influence both America & indirectly the rest of the world will move in a better and more humane direction.

In Australia most of us are hoisting a beer to Obama, he may not fix all of the Problems in the US, he may not fix any but if nothing else the US has shown the rest of the world that you want to change and try to fix all the things that have been shattered under the republican watch.

good luck in the future

I loved your words, NG!
Thank you, timelike, for this thread, with its well wishes from around the globe.

When an event happens that brings grown men and women to tears, we are witnessing an event of human importance.
The millions of citizens who became politically energized and aware is a testament to collective action for change.

We must not cease this energy and awareness, but now use it to work together for our goal of a better nation. As we become the best we can be, we can once again become what is best for the world.

all the best from east germany! I feel the need to discuss this matter but nobody cares over here. In general the way how we vote and do a political campaign is very different. Many people find the US way childish and concider it to be just populism. NOBODY here can imagine to shout out lout GERMANY GERMANY or MERKEL MERKEL maybe because of the past ... our politicians are mostly ugly, no war heros or sexy mommies, but they are well-educated and experienced except the english skill of course!

People are becoming more optimistic with Obama as the new president. All over the world people are becoming more confident as America should no longer be aggressive militarily.

Let's hope Obama will do many things for America. Fix the economy, pull out of Iraq, and establish confidence within the county.

If you have no goodwishes or want to spread hatred and nonsense, take it elsewhere. This is for everyone outside the USA who will benifit from what the American people have done today, not a place for bitter closed minded people who wish spread their hatreds.


by the way, the people didn't do anything but take a poll on who'd they'd like to see "lead" this corporation. the Electoral College is responsible for him getting into office, if that's what you mean - they just wanted our opinion first...


just thought i'd clear that up!


how do you benefit from Obama becoming president for your sister country, in the British-Israel Empire?

...or did i just answer my own question???

Congratulations Mr President, it makes me happy to see that racism on a mass scale really did stay in the 20th century, especially in the states, especially in the South, i'm proud of you all that you have left that part of you in the past and elected a man who i honestly believe could turn your country around for the best.

All my best wishes and love America, I hope this is what you need, and what you deserve.



Edited to say the whole "what you deserve" was meant in a good way, after i re-read that i realised some people may have mis-interpreted it, lol.

really? i saw racism on national television yesterday, when the Black Panthers "intimidated" voters from entering the voting booths... no need to worry though, the Aryan Brotherhood later dispersed them

As a Republican who voted for Obama, I say thank you for congratulating America. For those who continue to complain about Obama winning, here's what I have to say to you:

It is time for change. It is time to admit that the Republican party we knew is no longer the same. It is time to show the world that we are a nation of one. We can no longer remain divided. Let's unite and take our country back, and I believe that yesterday's vote demonstrated to the world that we are not that bad after all. I hope we can humbly be the shining beacon once again.

I appreciate your thread and, please know that you have friends in America. Again, I am a Republican who saw what was best for America. I am tired of my party and the people that hijacked all its principles.

God bless every person around the world who hopefully looks at us in a more positive way since November 4, 2008 and God bless all of us in America.

P.S. We're not yet clear until January 20, 2009.

I'm talking about racism on a mass scale, which, and i'm sorry to say this, America is very guilty of (as is Germany c1939 and other countries throughout history). Yes racism still exists, and its sad, we are one species, whether we are black, white or whatever colour, and the majority of America, given only 50 - 100 years or so ago looked down on other colours, and that is why i am proud of that country for so quickly accepting that we are one race, despite colour. Yes there are still arseholes in this world who despise people of other race, and all i can say is I hope they die lonely and miserable, and I am sorry to say that too, but it is how i feel.

Peace.
