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.

    Sixty-nine percent of America has spoken for the rest who do not (yet) have eyes to see or ears to hear.

    Yeshua ben Joseph was about the “heart” and “peace”….it’s time to bring this great country into the 21st Century and truly be a shining example on behalf of the rest of the world.

  • Kris

    Obama sucks. I honestly wanted McCain to win… McCain deserved to win ..

    BUT i will say that Obama’s speech was amazing.
    I really don’t like the guy and i don’t support his beliefs and decisions but i will say his speech was wonderfully delivered and emotional and inspirational..
    That will the only positive thing i can say about Obama.

  • Shannon

    i voted obama, but not very excited about the winning cause it means nothing until he does something like actually SOMETHING to make us a better nation. Until then, keep urs fingers crossed. The winning is not a guarantee.
    PS it shows that some black folks are ignorant. U don’t get out and vote just because a black dude is running!!! tons of blacks were voting the very first freaking time over the age of 30. wtf???!!??

  • OBAMA GIRL

    ANNABELLE FOR PRESIDENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i am completely agreeing with what your saying.

  • lalalala

    oh yeah. obama is amazing because he will bring “CHANGE.”

    change for the better or for the worse. it doesnt matter to all you obama supporters. as long as he brings “change” then ra ra ra.
    because it doesnt matter whether this “change” everyone speaks of will be beneficial or not. all we need is change.

    sad day for America.

  • express_guy86

  • Jade

    I don’t like McCain as much anymore b/c of the desperate negative campaign he ran, but he did earn a little bit of my respect with his speech tonight. I think us Obama/Biden supporters deserve this win more than anybody for putting up with 8 years of Bush. lol With that said, I am a very happy camper. And thanks to those from overseas for your support. We really appreciate it.

  • andrea

    yeeeei GO OBAMA!

  • Me

    I pray that I am wrong, but I fear for this country. I don’t understand how people could be so foolish and elect a man who could not pass a background check to be the president’s bodyguard, but it’s okay for him to be president? His wife is a racist, who just now is proud of her country? Nevermind all of the men and women who have sacrificed their lives for this country so we can be free. And what about all the times the US has come to the aide of other countries? That’s nothing to be proud of? Mostly I resent all of the blacks who never bothered to vote before, showing up to vote just because he is a black man. Yeah, that a really good reason to vote for someone. And his “spread the wealth” plan? Yeah, take from from people who work their butts off so they can live comfortbly and give it to those who refuse to work. Yeah, sounds fair to me. But whatever, if everything falls apart….at least I can say, I didn’t vote for him. If in 4 years, he has proved me wrong, I will gladly eat crow and congratulate those who did vote for him.

  • chris

    emily your a racist fool. You think white people were the first ones here your wrong. Native-Americans were here before white people. America is a nation for all kinds of people, and its people like you who need to get educated!

  • angel

    president obama is brilliant leader. may god be him always he’s a great man with a heart of gold. i love our new president.

  • laura

    those who are saying that america will fall into the pits of hell under obamas presidency, YOU. ARE. IGNORANT.

    do u not realize that you are citizen of america? therefore you would suffer as well? (not implying that obama would do such thing) if you are not a citizen of america, it will effect you just as much, because face it — AMERICA LEADS THE WORLD. if america falls, everyone else will too.

    GOD BLESS OBAMA!

  • c dog
