GOD BLESS THIS COUNTRY AND GOD BLESS OBAMA!SO PROUD OF AMERICA!!!

HE IS A TRUE LEADER!!!NOW LET S GET TO WORK....
Well, he won fair and square. He wasn't my choice, but now it's time to put partisan politics behind us. Let's give our support to him and hope America made the right choice.
Congratulations to Obama...but I think the news anchor on election night are misinformed Obama is African/White...why do they keep saying Black...if they submit Black with being African-American than Obama is not Black...if they submit Black with his complexion..then why don't the call some HIspanics, Cubans, Jamaicans....Black???? This is crazy...I'm am Black/Chinese...I didn't want to vote for any of them...Obama is for issues regarding homosexuality, planned parenthood, MCcain economy plan is not favorable...anyway... The crazy thing is at Ebnezer Baptist Church is happy for someone who supports homosexual marriage, and planne parenthood..Do not go to this Church..Please...
very close call.....hope you all are ready for more taxes..more laws.. and more gov spending...I own a electrical Co and will have to charge more when Obama's new laws come in...and Joe the plumber id going to have to charge more...good luck USA
Im very happy for u and ur family
Congrats Mr. President....God bless Obama, God bless America.
I like the sound of that: President Obama
Just make the changes and unite the country and God Bless us all President Elect Obama
the people have spoken loud and clear,with their right to vote.this man is a Leo,and they are known for their loyalty,so let's give him the chance to fix all the mess left behind and support his efforts.
Woo hoo! I am proud of America tonight! Now, let's get past this election as a unified country and move toward a peaceful and brighter tomorrow. God Bless Obama/Biden!
Ummm, sorry but "change" is not voting for a candidate in a party that has been a major force in Washington for over a century. That is more of the same, just as voting for McCain would be more of the same. It is astounding how such poor performances in Washington has yielded no "change" by the voters – they keep voting for the Democrats and Republicans. Real change is when something truly different comes to and happens in Washington. Both parties are now for big government – how is that going to change? Both support policing of the world with military presences in over 130 countries – how will this change? Both parties consistently violate the Constitution – the law of the land. how will this change? the answers? It won't change. Good job America on voting in another 4 years of more of the same.
the americans have finally spoken.kudos.let the world emulate such a free n fair election.
I am so overwhelmed by this election! Congratulations President Obama!
so that King could walk
so that Obama could run
and our children could Fly
God bless America
Mark My Words.
We need to stop dividing our country with racist rants about the President Elect being a terrorist. All this BS that people threw in the mix in order to scare us and prevent us from trying something new and different. If he can run this country the way he ran his campaign we will be FINE! Congrats Senator, you earned this win FAIR AND SQUARE and with your dignity intact. I am thrilled that we actually had the courage to vote for change.
