I never thought Americans would elect a terrorist for president... We're all doomed.

 

 The campaign is over. Shit like that needs to stop. This is a democracy, the people have spoken. We should all give him a chance, if we think he begins to abuse his power we should speak out, and vote him out in 4 years. For now I really want him to be a great president, why? Because I love America and that is what we need.

OBAMA!!!OBAMA!!!OBAMA!!!OBAMA!!!OBAMA!!! That was something special..



 

I agree with bigjon, its over. People need to drop all the BS. McCain is a great guy, I just don't like the campaign he ran, or his VP choice. He is probably the GOP's best candidate since Eisenhower, IMO.



We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers…Also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.  The only thing that really worried me was the ether.  There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge. –Raoul Duke

It is hard to shed anything but crocodile tears over White House speechwriter Patrick Buchanan's tragic analysis of the Nixon debacle. "It's like Sisyphus," he said. "We rolled the rock all the way up the mountain...and it rolled right back down on us...."  Neither Sisyphus nor the commander of the Light Brigade nor Pat Buchanan had the time or any real inclination to question what they were doing...a martyr, to the bitter end, to a "flawed" cause and a narrow, atavistic concept of conservative politics that has done more damage to itself and the country in less than six years than its liberal enemies could have done in two or three decades. -Hunter S. Thompson

turn on fox news... they are saying really nice things about obama. Many of u are wrong about fox news... If McCain had one some of the other networks would not have been so nice about it.

I guess that makes up for all the fearmongering, terrorist charges, and Muslim charges.

 

Maybe its because they know it gets them the viewers.... They do draw more primetime viewers than all other cable news networks combined.

I'll actually buy that argument!  Though CNN does do pretty well in the post-primetime slots.

I eagerly await mid-March when we can start blaming Barack for all our problems.

I also eagerly await a Republican Congress in 2010.

Other than that, congrats to Barack.

 

QFT.



So glad the election is over...hopefully the hateful comments will die down.

Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )

So fearmongering and the spread of propaganda is acceptable if it gets you higher ratings?

That's....not a good excuse.

reagan was pretty decent ; )

I really do not think McCain even wanted to mention Ayers... he was pressured to his managers. That is what I think.

 

Watching McCain give his concession.  Class AAA Man. No bitterness, just says how great Obama's achievement was. Telling supporters to stop booing. I hope Obama puts McCain in his Cabinet.

Indeed, McCain's concession speech has been great. This is the McCain who should have run for office. He might have won.
