Barack Obama Elected President

Democrat Barack Obama was elected as the first black president of the United States of America on Tuesday night.

The 47-year-old senator from Illinois defeated Republican Sen. John McCain. Officials said voters came out in record numbers on Election Day — 130 to 140 million people.

The crowd is going wild in Grant Park in Chicago, where Obama will give his first public speech as president-elect.

Obama will be sworn in as the 44th President on January 20, 2009.

    Good because Obama will tax the Jews first and he will prioritize Palestine over Israel.

    Our poor military depress because they defend us from terrorism but their budget will be cut down so badly.

    World Trade was bombed because of gold and the jews and so hilarious to see stupid Hollywood partying when little they know they are run by the Jews and the Jews are the target of terrorism.

    I cant wait when another 9-11 happens and to see the faces of Hollywood people.

    Sharon D. @ 11/04/2008 at 11:17 pm WOW!!! It’s finally the end of the Bush/Clinton 20 year presidential run!!!!!!

    #########

    What the hell is wrong with you? What do Bush and Clinton have in common? Zero. Were you even awake during the 8 great years of the Clinton administration? Go back to school and learn something.

    Let’s hope Obama has as successful a presidency as Bill Clinton did. We will all win if he does.

    When people worhip MONEY it is the root of all evil. America….remember Rome….Noah’s Ark and Sodom and Gomorrah.
    Americans trade their morals and values over the love of money.
    God is watching America. He allows something events people dont understand. Its rejoicing for now but its not forever.
    Obama will bring change indeed but its for the bad.
    He is called the One by Oprah and many as if he is God. You know God hates when he is rivaled by other idols. That’s in the 10 Commandments.

    he won because of emotional votes. Stupid ppl didnt realize Republican or Democrat the economy will get better again and years from now it will get bad again.

    Simple economics ppl. Didnt some of you study Econ?

    >>>>>>>>>>>

    I did study economics

    Though markets may cycle up and down the issue in question is – what is the trend. For example, since 2002, the US $ has been steadily devaluing against other major currencies. Sure, its up right now, but longer term??

    It’s may have studied econ 101 but obviously you failed to study Economic History. Lessons from the past is instructive. Look for trends.
