Hello there, i am new to this site (which appears pretty rad btw!) and posting this here at the request of close friend who thought others may appreciate the view i am trying to disseminate.
I am posting from Australia and thus cannot claim a comprehensive knowledge of the election but being a student of history, i watch most large scale campaigns closely, watching for those old tricks us dogs never seem to learn from.
Barrack Obama's grandmother dies of cancer election eve and a wave of remorse for this man sweeps a nation, the underdog syndrome kicks in and no bloke would like to have on his concience the thought that he compounded the problem... Obama waking up that morning to face both electoral defeat and the death of poor ol "nanna?"
There is not a shroud of evidence to support my theory, of course, but i just find it very coincidental that she went down that way that night...
Kinda like how it was very coincidental that that Reichstagg building happened to burst into flames and give adolph his enabling act? Everything comes out in the wash and even without a shroud of evidence, i KNOW exactly who was behind that fire...
I dont want to take anything away from the mass way of euphoria being felt by black people everywhere, its great this moment of great hope and all but i after trying to research this man, at depth, all i see is a cunning orator who has some semblance of a political platform bured amongst a mound of useless rhetoric. Besides being black, i cant really see obama being much different then all those other rich men standing for office. I just have weird fears and premonitions that the smile is a mask for something not quite so pleasant. As i said earlier... itll all come out in the wash.
American thoughts on my view would be most excellent... am i just paranoidly condemning a fair man based on the evil actions of others?

This man has been elected president as a result of a rather excruciating struggle against all odds. I am white an I did not vote for him. I hold him in the highest respect and am very proud of America right now, something I have not felt in 8 long years. Who cares if the underdog benefited. The nasty's always do.. Lets see how he does before we start bashing him. He has certainly earned this right.
