I did not voted for Obama, I still think his tax plans will ruin America. But I really hope too God that he proves me wrong. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:19, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

There you go - republicans can't spell. :) 09:49, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

^ Repulbicans? Ignorant people don't often spell well, and they can fall on either party line. Not all republicans are ignorant and neither are all democrats. Anyways, I'm proud of our country for this historic election result. It makes me truly proud to be an American. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:29, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Look at the past edit history. Originally it was spelled correctly but was later modified to the incorrect form by, thus opening the way for you to make such a comment. I suspect the two of you are actually partners in this scheme. I have reverted his illegitimate change to another users comments. 03:21, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

I am not a citizen of the US of A but I still hope he does a better job than his predecessor. -Aless.mac (talk) 10:00, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Somehow, I don't think it would be difficult to do better than Bush. --Brian McNeil / talk 10:24, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

HAHA YES[edit]

This is going to be pure win, simply because all the racist sites will shit themselves silly. 10:00, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Congratulations, Barack Obama! You were the lesser of the two evils.-Sidorvich (talk)

Congratulations America. I hope he does a good job. -Aless.mac (talk) 04:28, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

I really hope he proves me wrong. But i doubt it —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:54, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Yay. 04:58, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Congratulations America. A new era has begun! The whole world is watching ye all. Galoubet (talk) 10:38, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

At least McCain gave up gracefully after it became horribly obvious that Obama won (as in the results were in, because it was obvious months ago Obama would win) --Gimmethegepgun (talk) 11:42, 5 November 2008 (UTC)


Congratulations Mr. Barack Obama, US President Elect.

I hope that he may look the world affairs through a different lens contrary to the conventional route followed by his predecessors and foreign policy drafted in a clean slate so as to protect the human race from the perilous path now traversing by those who are in control of the destiny of worldly life of human race. In that context I hope that the contents of my E-publication under may be helpful to view the worldly affairs through a different mirror. Entire world is looking upon Mr. Obama as a worthy world savior and the world is now passing through a very difficult phase of its existence.

Thank the stars that the Republican reign is over. Congrats to all Americans.Derekbd (talk) 12:03, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Obama wins![edit]

I knew it from the start of this historical event, that Obama would eventually win. When the Democratic party was voting for their candidate, i knew Obama would be chosen and truly, i think he could be a good president for the United States of America —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:49, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

I am so glad Obama is new president. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:05, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Change is coming to America. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:11, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

You think? It seems to me we're moving from one homophobic conservative Christian president to another homophobic conservative Christian president. The differences between Bush and Obama are truly only skin-color deep. Angr (talk) 22:56, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Homophobic? Obama has a whole section on the website pertaining to LGBT issues. He's completely different from Bush in most ways.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs)

From a Republican and too my fellow Republicans[edit]

Who voted for McCain, I congrats Obama for not only winning, but being the first African-American to be elected President, King and JFK would be proud. I will not be like some liberals who under bush try too sabotage and made things worse when he was president. I and us fellow Republicans should make the best out it since the world we live in is still dangerous and the problems at Home are no longer 'tolerable' and I hope I was wrong about you're economic plan, so I'm going too be a 'loyal opposition' I already don't like some of the ideas I hear about the Fair Radio being a come back. But as a Citizen I am ready for change.--KDP3 (talk) 08:40, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

BARACK OBAMA IS NOTHING BUT BAD NEWS TO AMERICA. HE IS GOING TO BRING CHANGE TO THE WHITE HOUSE THAT THE PEOPLE WILL NOT LIKE. I was shocked when I heard about Barack winning over McCain. What is this world coming to? An end. If you ask them why they voted for him, they freeze up like idiots. No one knows who he is yet everyone wants to put him in the White House. He has ties to Aires, hmmm if you don't remember he is the guy that bombed our pentagon. I'm not even going to begin talking about revern Wright, that "preacher" has some issues. Pulling the troops out of the war we should of never been in to begin with(thanks Bush) will only make our country seem weak. We have come to far to give up now. Oh and one last thing, higher taxes will never fix our economy. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:09, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
Which is better? "Seeming" weak, or staying in the war that will "make" us weak? -- 14:36, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
Higher taxes worked underneath Clinton.... oh conservatives. *rolls eyes* --TUFKAAP (talk) 01:15, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

America the great has fallen.[edit]

It scares the crap out of me that our president will not pledge alliegiance to our flag. Our nation, in its poor condition, has chosen a man who cares nothing about america and has virtually no plan for it. It is an abomination that our nation has chosen Barack Hussein Obama II, a man who has the single most liberal voting record in the senate, and voted 'present' 90% of the time he was a senator. If America was attacked under his leadership and he was asked what to do, what would he say? Surely saying "I'm here! present!" wouldn't help much. When our stock market crashes, his mere presence in the white house won't soothe our wounds. When the beauty of marriage is mocked by homosexuals, his presence in the white house will not be enough to preserve the sacred tradition between MAN AND WOMAN. When the nation's film industry becomes too liberal to produce 'family-friendly' programming, his presence in the white house will not cleanse the minds of every child in America who is exposed to the trash. When a baby is murdered before it ever gets a chance to breath on its own, Barack Hussein Obama will not be touched by its cries.. In fact, he supports ALL TYPES of abortion, NO MATTER HOW LATE it is.. Barack Hussein Obama symbolizes the infedelity of our nation because by chosing this individual, we have killed countless more babies, "married" hundreds of homosexuals, crashed our stock markets, and poured trash into our children's minds. If you have voted for Obama, BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF! If you did not, I commend you. I warn you, the end has come not only for America, but for all of mankind. The day of reckoning is coming for the earth and God will rature all of his followers on that day. ARE YOU READY!!? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

^ You gotta love the extreme Christian right. With their conspiracy theories and complete lies. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:04, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

"America the great has fallen" - now you know how the rest of us felt when Bush was elected for a second term. Hurts, don't it? Gopher65talk 16:25, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
The greatness of the United States comes from its diversity, not from some theocratic ideologue or schizophrenic. President Obama will be pragmatic and will bring in a new and much more capable administration. One that will stop abuse of the bailout funds for paying non-contractual dividends and other misuses as well as many other malpractices in the financial industry. An administration that will also recognize the sovereignty of Iraq and obey treaties negotiated with its elected government. 18:41, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
Obama actually is against gay marriage... he does support civil unions however. --TUFKAAP (talk) 01:17, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

"When the nation's film industry becomes too liberal to produce 'family-friendly' programming, his presence in the white house will not cleanse the minds of every child in America who is exposed to the trash" Maybe the parents should be parents and stop their children from watching that trash. Just a thought. Agtrheeeinsm (talk) 17:59, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

go OBAMA[edit]

OBAMA will be an awesome prez —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:56, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

No matter[edit]

It doesn't matter obama or Mccain, both are not appropriate candidate. Mccain is too old. can he handle the pressure at age 72? next year 73. He's already old citizen. well Obama is the first black president.

May Obama is better. the world like him more than other candidates. The world want the leader who hear the other country voices, cries and so on. Well we see obama as more humane. Soon we will figure out, how he will lead US. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:04, 7 November 2008 (UTC)


Again, muslims are coming forward to rule the world once again. Take care everybody. Obama Hussian - Zindabad Go Obama and change the world-- 10:02, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Muslims never ruled the world. I guess it would be too much to expect of the American population that everyone would be able to disregard a person's middle name, and listen to what the candidate says. Long live misplaced Christian fundamentalism and patriotism, eh? --Joda (talk) 12:28, 7 November 2008 (UTC)


First muslim to control world. Name should be changed to Barack Hussein Obama.-- 06:57, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

All these "name" idiots are the same fools who try to calculate 666 out of everything they see. And who believe in the Mayan calender. Screw balls all around. 14:39, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
He never even indicated he was a muslim. On your note, the rate at which George Bush was called George Walker Bush, is somewhat similar to the rate Barack Obama is called Barack Hussein Obama. Should he have special treatment because his middle name is the same as some psychotic middle-eastern dictator, who is distinct from Obama in so many ways I don't even know where to begin? --Joda (talk) 16:26, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
nonsense. george w bush was called walker only to distinguish him from his father, WHO SHARES THE SAME NAME. "hussein" is used only to frighten others and to insult. - Imind (talk) 01:31, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
For some reason someone added a colon to my reply. It was meant for the original poster. As you would see in my reply, I agree with you. I see no reason why he either should or shouldn't use his middle name. It's JUST a name, with ancient roots like most other names, and doesn't tell us anything about the character of the person who has it. That's the only point I was trying to make. --Joda (talk) 02:22, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Seriously, how did we end up electing a communist as president?!?

Commen sense from the West "By God" Virginia[edit]

Instead of bailing out the Big Corporations ... Why doesn't the US Government give every American citizen one million dollars each to invest in a business, start their own stock plans or retirement or invest in the company they work for so they can keep their jobs and continue to recieve a benefit for their hard work and retire with some pride. We need to get our pride back. The American people are being suppressed by the Big Corporations. It is time to put them in their place. Let American People decide who to bail out. I guarantee they will make the right choice. Peg Bundy from West Virginia —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:38, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
