Have you ever thought about changing jobs? Perhaps you should get away from the computer a bit more? Really, some fresh air works wonders!

sorry for the socialism America has voted for. I really belive that it will take whole nation down. Mc Cain was not only greate american patriot but also the experienced one. Obama with his programm will ruin the whole nation. we in Poland will have a small problem to stand by our american friends in next few years as we did until now. I only hope taht there will be something after it. we had a socialism for 50 years and it is definetly not a good solution for the hard times in economy. take care America. we cross the fingers for you to survive this presidency. by the way there was a greate book written by polish author some 150 years ago about messiah and "his name was 44" but it meant that it will also be the end of our world as we know it. and nostradamus could not be tolking about the black pope as the last one to rule the world...

As an American, I thank all of you for giving us your best wishes and congratulations, I really do. I appreciate the love, respect and hope you are all feeling toward our country.
I know many of you have changed your opinion of us virtually overnight.


However, in this day of congratulations I can't help but notice that we wouldn’t be congratulated if it were McCain who was elected. I see it in this thread, even though the original poster requested that this be a positive thread with no political baiting, it seems that is almost every congratulatory post there is quite a bit of hate infused. Veiled congratulations.

If McCain had won, we would be seeing post after post (including you OP) that would have bashed this country with less than supportive words. That saddens me…
And it just tells me (us) that you are just like the rest of us, politically biased.

As for my fellow Americans, I saw one post that said he was finally proud to be an American today. As if a McCain win would have made him less so. He hated America Monday and loves it on Wednesday?

Isn’t that kind of silly?

The problems that we still face just magically melted away like they never mattered.. all that mattered was that their guy was in the White House.

Is that a true American?

How about you.. the non-American. Are you being honest? You, who congratulates us today? Do you love us now? Do you really think anything has changed? Has the worlds media based hatred of one man gone so far that your willing to suspend logic?

I am not baiting you, or calling out your sincerity.. but I want to know.. is the congratulation real? The hope?

One vote can change a country so much?

Honestly, based on the worlds reaction, I am glad Obama won.
I repeat, I am as far away from a liberal can get, and I say.. I am glad Obama won.

I love my country and always have loved my country regardless of who was in the White House (unlike many of you on this forum who are fair-weather at best)

But I also realize a few things some of you will either ignore, forget or will not realize due to lack of media interest:

I don’t believe Guantanamo will cease to exist (even if it is closed)
I do not believe that America’s tactics will change (only the reporting of)
I do not believe that America’s “illegal” activities in the intelligence world will cease. (only the reporting of)
I do not believe that America’s foreign policy will change with any significance whatsoever. (only the reporting of)
America’s stanch positions on trade and protectionism will not change, neither will it’s stance with other world leaders or our positions on defense or allies defense. WTO will be the same, NATO will stay the say.

So the only thing that changes is the placard on the oval office desk and we have a guy smart enough not to say silly things like "you're either with us or against us"


And the world doesn’t care.?
In fact they are congratulating us…. profusely at that.

I am glad.. but at the same time, kindof dissapointed in the rest of the world.

Actually you're quite wrong, I would not have bashed your country had McCain won, you really ought to get to know me before you predict my actions!

To my mind Obama did have a lot of things stacked against him and the first black president his something to start a thread about!

Really, this event has turned into something far more significant than a Republican vs Democrat election, the events of this week have been quite unique, and for some reason this election seems to have transcended politics. You can't deny that had McCain won (and I think he probably would have made a good president) the event would simply be not as significant; after all what would have been different?

In electing Obama, all of your countries ideals once hold true, you guys can dream the American dream again for its reality is for all to see.

Maybe this is why your people on here are saying they are proud to be American, not because they hated it on tuesday and love it on Wednesday, but because they loved on Tuesday and can now express it freely on Wednesday! The last eight years have been bad for America and for us too, Bush was not alone in making all of those terrible choices, he was abley assisted by Tony Blair here in the UK. At last you can draw a line under it, the abusive relationship is over.

Yes, it was all about change, not just a change from Republican, but a a momunetal change for history, for the way people think. Yes change is coming to your country, and perhaps the world, that alone is worth celebrating.

Yes, congratulations to USA from me too. All the people in Europe and Africa really love Obama. So this will cure some of the damage Bush has done to the international relations of USA.

Of course Obama will have a mighty challenge in cleaning up the mess Bush has left behind in the USA and in the whole world. So I wish him luck.

Of course it would not be possible for him to get this far without approval from the powers that be. Think about it this way: The global elite has different factions that have very different ideas about how things should be done. Obama probably represent just one faction which I feel is more beneficient than the neocons of the Bush administration. Just look at someone like Soros, definitely part of the global elite, but completely different ideas from someone like Bush.

But I am really afraid that Obama will have very little room to maneuver politically, or he will be terminated just like JFK... Probably they will have a skinhead "lonely gunman" shooting "magic bullets" from many directions at the same time... A modern version of Lee Harvey Oswald.

If you non-americans love hussien o'commie so much, invite him and mccomrade over to your side. when you guys start another world war, maybe this time around we'll let you destroy yourselves.
i'm sure the rockefellars and rothschilds are very pleased with themselves. save your congrats for the rebirth of stalin, you'll be seeing his ghost soon.
if we go the way of the e.u. , god help us. on the other hand, we defeated tyranny before, we can do it again. i only hope a strong leader like a founding father will rise up and lead us to freedom.
boston tea party, anyone?

I dont know what part of Texas you are from but I live there to and I and everyone around me are firmly seated in reality, on planet earth.
Maybe you should specify what portion of Texas you are from, that way I know which parts to avoid.

Btw, Gratz to Obama, although I am by no means a supporter of his but I wasnt a supporter of McCain either.
What I want, at least once before i die, is to have TWO decent candidates run, at the same time, that way people arent forced to vote for the "lesser of the two"

I am not bitter he won the election but I believe he was elected for all the wrong reasons. People think and I mean REALLY think that he is going to change the world, my friend from Texas, those are the people that are not seated in reality.

I shouldn't have specifically called on you.. I didn't mean to but I see where I put that in my post.. my bad. I meant the posters in general that were posting.. not you specifically.

This is what bothers me a bit. Americas ideals have always held true to me. They weren't suspended for 8 years. GWB will not be vindicated by any means in the years to come but the villification will certainly fall away.
The perception is much worse than the reality.


In a dozen years or so (or sooner) someone will be saying the "ideals finally hold true" when a woman becomes president and again when it's a hispanic ? ..will it be les valid then because of today.. or more so?

Americas ideals haven't changed one bit. Anyone can be anything here if they work hard enough. That never changed. It has just been realized now by a dark skinned American who knew it was true all along.

The ideals have always held true. It has just taken the will of some to get there.

Many of us KNOW that Amercia is not the racist hate filled country many of you believe it to be. (or used to be on Monday) Now we have shown that, maybe it could have been a lot sooner had we had a candidate like Obama..

All I hear on the news is the same old quote from every black person they can possibly interview "I never thought I'd see it in my lifetime". I think that has more to do with their preconceived notions than reality. Same for the rest of the world.

Oh dear, did someone get out of the wrong side of the bed this morning? Why not make yourself a nice cup of tea and stiffen that upper lip!

Oh sorry, did you post something intelligent? I have a meter that usually goes off when that happens and it was curiously quiet when I saw that you had responded.

Again, this is our country and we'll handle our own politics, thank you.

Hrmm... speaking of intelligence, I thought that this thread was titled "Congratulations to President elect Obama from People outside America"

And yet with so many other threads getting "Locked by Mods" They allowed this one to continue, so that *MUST* mean that the comments from the Brits are *WELCOME*. And that this thread is about Congratulations.


Timelike, pay no attention to sos. He is one of a dying breed, and if you look at the other threads you will find there is no limit the amount of hate that he spews towards the members of this forum. Please don't let the stench of just one ruin your impression of the rest of us.

Belated congratulations to Mr. Obama on his election.

What the USA must do, come January, is to demonstrate that its international partnerships are based on persuasion and not command. I hope Mr. Obama has the commonsense to put that into practice.

As to being told to keep out of US politics, frankly we've had it rammed down our throats here on ATS for over a year. Surely "foreigners" must be allowed to pass some kind of comment ?

Please pay no attention to those who say foriegners have no business in US politics. As long as you are neighbors and subject to our foreign policy, you have every right to voice your opinions.

And many thanks on the comments about our newly elected President.


As you can see from the TV, we are all very happy over here. well. most of us. :-)

I'm an American and I congratulate Obama for kicking some b#tt. I didn't vote for him and very weary of his policies and the people he hangs with. I'm keeping a close eye on him and can only hope that if it gets worse that America votes him right back out of office. I also wonder if in four years will everyone who loves him and voted him in will be saying he was a sellout, because things change once you come off the campaign road and into the White House. Thank you all for the grats and I hope things do get better.

You label my words as hate because you don't agree with my stand on politics. That is typical of the Democrats of this nation.

What we can do without is the smugness of people from other countries offering their opinions on how our fine country ought to be run. America is still the best country on Earth in my opinion.
