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.

Oh my god we won we ******* won I’m so damn happy OBAMA WON
We have made history The first African American President We came back full circle .
WE WONNNNNNN

Morons think Obama will pull out the troops in 16 months. Like he will do that. Im hearing otherwise from West Point and Annapolis from new graduates who are getting new orders that they are staying for a long long time in Iraq and Afghanistan. No time table is set.
Obama will not pull them out and if he will he will breed more enemies and more Ben Ladin. Dont forget what happened in Somalia and Afghanistan(Soviets and U.S.) we abandoned them and we got Sept.11

The War Is Over
Thank You Barack Obama

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

>>>>>>>>>

You are absolutely correct there and I must admit, I’m nervous at the thought of Democrats controlling all houses of power – white, congress and senate.

The governments the world over are going to pump up the economy with lots of investments. From what I’ve read, I understand this is necessary to ensure that the world economies don’t fall into a depression. This makes me nervous because I think that all politicians find difficulty switching off the taps when the time comes.

From the feedback, Obama appears to be someone who is good at building up a good team, listening to expert advice. I think his team will include Lawrence Summers. He has already made prominent Paul Volcker – the fed gov who fought stagflation. Bernanke is also a good guy – not so idealogical.

People now need to ensure that Obama will do the right thing when the taps need to be switched turned down or off – just as Clinton had done. Perhaps the next Congressional election? I understand half of congress is elected every 2 years?? (Haven’t done my research on this).

The world will end anytime soon. BE READY ALWAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!

yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
we did it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

woot! congrats!

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
