    “afraid”? But why?

    The change that we have been talking about for the past two years is a willingness to look at issues without partisanship AND to try something new. If we are true to the mantra of change, we are willing to reexamine Obama the President in 4 years. So, why fear?

    “We” did not win and “you” did not lose. We all won because we got to participate in our government process, and we get the same call to duty every November. Despite all the rhetoric of the campaign trail, the issue at play from day one has been whether we are going to divide ourselves with nasty partisanship or whether we are going to unite in our common cause of democracy.

    This election, and the result, is not the end. It is only the beginning (as is any election).

    Greetings:

    Why be proud?

    Proud of what?

    Blacks were united in voting for Barack Hussein Obama, because of his race and his anti-Americanism.

    Whites were divided against each other, with some voting for John McCain, who is also anti-American, some voting for Barack Hussein Obama because of a misplaced sense of guilt, and other Whites voting for third party candidates, because they were so disgusted with the Republicans acting like Democrats.

    Black Panthers in Philadelphia openly intimidated voters, and got away with it, thanks to the prevailing racial double standard and Marxist-inspired “political correctness”.

    So, what do we have to be so proud of?

    Barack Hussein Obama has already stated clearly what he thinks of the Constitution of the United States.

    Maybe others think the Constitution is outdated, but I still believe in it, for it’s a basic part of my religious faith.

    Thank you.

    Sorry, but which religion incorporates the constitution of the United States in its faith?

    I didnt know who was president until a day after you guys in America did! Well maybe more like 5 hours but i hate time zone math.

    Im proud of America and i had to yell “Yata” when i first heard.

    For all of those who are mad I’ll just say “Get over it”. Support him now and hope he doesnt screw us over. No amount of recounts will make up the difference so he is our president whether anyone likes it or not. (No one has stated it on this forum yet but its for future people)

    Looks like John Robert Mallernee is one of those children that got left behind ……

    WAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYY behind.

    I wonder what he was doing when the rest of us were learning about the Constitution and United States history.

    I’m pleased too, and it’s because I feel this man is educable and doesn’t KNOW it all where he will only do what he thinks is right. He’ll listen and then act.

    I just finished reading President-elect Obama’s acceptance speech and it brought tears to my eyes. There is hope after all.   I had pretty much given up on the viability of this country based on all the unending greed and corruption that has been so rampant this past decade. Yet even without a dramatic presentation, just his words alone inspire hope for the future. Hope for a lot of things but especially hope that we will move from the paradigm of the divisiveness of finger pointing and bickering to an inclusive search for win-win solutions that respect human and global dignity. This was exemplified by his words:

    As Lincoln said to a nation far more divided than ours, we are not enemies but friends. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection.   And to those Americans whose support I have yet to earn, I may not have won your vote tonight, but I hear your voices. I need your help. And I will be your president, too.

    I think the biggest danger now is the (probably unrealistic), high expectations of his supporters and his critics, both nationally and globally. It is certainly going to be a test of his mettle. For everyone’s sake, I wish him success.
