  • Natty

    get ready for fema concentration camps..

  • crazy statements

    O@tina: OH yeah, celebrate lack of funding for simple needs and equipment and celebrate the lowering of esteem around the world. If you are intimating that under obam there won’t be military maneuvers for real, OK. But then what a sad, sad, sad, day for this nation. A bunch of girlie soldiers, heaving a sigh of relief that what they signed on for won’t have to be faced. No protecting their nation. Hide under the covers, now, sweetie. Boo. You deserve what you’ll get.

  • OBAMA WILL BE IMPEACHED

    @lucy: Obama will have to answer for what happened in Libya. It’s not over. Don’t celebrate to fast and I’m not right wing, I’m a democrat. He will be impeached. Obama knew in real time this was a terrorist attack not a fake protest from a made up 15 minute movie. He who laughs first does not get the laugh last.

  • Dave Franco

    He WON Ohio and Florida. That is huge. Obama has still a lot of work to do but I have faith.

  • ko

    why are people so excited? he didn’t have competition, i really wish a strong republican was up against him to make him respond instead of just hitting romney with witty comebacks.

    well.. good luck america

  • Dave Franco

    @exnihilo Great post.

    @KO Ron Paul would have given a good run.

  • Isha

    @OBAMA WILL BE IMPEACHED: No matter how hard you try, you can’t stop the celebration!!!

  • on concession speech

    @Natty:

    ding the tea partier.

  • on concession speech

    hey natty,
    I think you got kool aid in your tea pot
    throw it out!

  • ko

    @Dave Franco: yeah i thought that, too. I’ve heard him speak live and he makes other republicans sh<t themselves

  • on concession speech

    natty, if a military president gets in there would be fema concentration camps but obama won.
    your tea party is the war party.
    not interested.
    bye

  • Putin

    He promised he would have more flexibility with me after the election…I’m taking him up on his offer and giving him a congratulatory call ;)

  • on concession speech

    consider kool aid dumped for half of america. get out of the tea party if you value your life.

  • Martial Law

    Congratulations!

  • on concession speech

    i actually like putin. the real one.

  • ally

    @pup first of all, Canada’s policies are similar to Obama’s. secondly, stay the hell away, no one wants horrible people like you.

  • lucy

    OBAMA WILL BE IMPEACHED

    Just as GW Bush was impeached for lying about WMD in Iraq? You needed PO to come out and tell you that the attack was real! tell me, were you also upset that he didn’t contact you first before taking out OBL as well. PO is not required to tell YOU everything he knows. Get real and join the rest of us.

  • to Martial law

    only if a warmonger president won would there be martial law. because in case you didn’t get the message. we ain’t having it. so f-ck off militariy ar$$ehole!

  • to lucy

    i have a question:
    what does PO stand for?

  • lucy

    To 120

    PO stands for President Obama.

  • Isha

    @lucy: OBAMA WILL BE IMPEACHED is staring at him or herself in the mirror right now, facing his double standards. I guess he/she will have to come up with some other baseless theory… but we are used to the republican rhetoric.

  • tina

    @crazy statements you have the right name because none of what you said made a bit of sense.

    @t:

    Good…so you can start scre_ _ _ ing around starting tomorrow.
    The gov’t will even pay for your abortions, dimwit

  • oy

    If he wants to make us like him, his first act should be to place a tax on anything that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth. We could clear up the deficit by Thanksgiving.

  • @#39

    @pup: I’m Canadian and I say you stay right the h.e.l.l. where you are. Keep that hate on your own damn soil. Canada doesn’t need that. We are a peaceful country that focuses on governing an entire nation as a whole, not just a religion. Religion needs to stay out of politics, IMO. The purpose of government is to work for/with the people. Unite them, not divde them. Respect all and learn to live together. You have no choice so suck it up.

  • JL

    I’m not American but I am so happy that Obama WINS presidential election!!!Congratulation!!!

  • notafan

    Congrats Obama. I anyways never thought Romney would win

  • Juicy Lucy

    I have always wanted to live in a third world country and now that Obama has been reelected, my wish has come true!

  • Whatever

    The welfare recipients are happy. The women who want the right to murder their baby are happy. The rest of us are screwed. Yay.

  • Wendy

    Non Americans are happy because this will further weaken this country.

  • Bill

    To the cluless poster who suggests taking advantage of student loans, there are many people with college degrees and huge loans that cannot get a job. Are you out of touch with reality? A college degree does nothing when companies arent hiring. Nobody is retiring. Too afraid. This is bad.

  • http://justjared anymouse

    You all cannot complain when it gets worse, after all you elected him.

  • SandyFeet

    If you celebrated last night and have a huge hangover this morning…well it is going to get really ugly real fast. Good luck America, you will needed.

  • NitaLita

    The world feels relief right now. It would have been a disaster for world peace if Romney had been elected president. Now Obama can continue all the good work he started, just imagine how many more people will get healthcare now. American women must feel so much safer now. Sexual assault is always the offenders fault, never the other way around. I am very happy for you!!! Love from Norway! :-)

  • az

    @anymouse: thinking the same thing – as an australian looking in i just don’t think there is going to be much of a change. but i hope so.. i mean we went to war because their last president ‘said so’ just hope this one knows when to stop it. i mean they’re still sending drones over the middle east so im going to say it isn’t going to end any time soon – believe it or not america, your president is still killing innocent ppl !!

  • Mary

    I thought the election would drag on and on and turn off the TV. I found out Pres. Obama won from Just Jared !!

  • Seana

    @az:
    .
    >>>>>>>
    .
    I’m an Australian who grew up in SEA and I tell you that the killing of innocent people using drones is NOTHING compared with carpet bombing, napalm and agent orange used in IndoChina 40 years ago.
    .
    I don’t know about you but I’m not happy about Aussies going into Iraq thanks to George W Bush. However, there is a conflict going on between the Western world and Al Queada and the Taliban. It’s a real conflict. Lest you’ve forgotten many Aussies were killed in Bali by the islamists trained in Afghanistan and pakistan. So, sorry to be brutal about it but in any violent conflict, there’s collateral damage. Just be thankful that those innocent killed don’t number in the hundreds of thousands and that our loved ones are safe.
    .
    Let’s not just blame american drones. What on earth were Islamists doing in Bali bombing innocent people?

  • az

    @Seana: yes but if you remember we didn’t start a war because of bali.

    And i’ll never think war is the answer, supporting soldiers is one thing but supporting a war is a whole different situation. And george bush said there were weapons of M.D and THERE WEREN’T. it was about oil.. you think killing innocent muslims is the answer? i don’t and i never will

    and i didn’t say i wasn’t happy it’s obama because romney isn’t what anyone needs but i dont think there will be a huge change in america.

  • Ray

    I think POTUS has to than Biden and Clintons A LOT !!! Couldn’t have done it without them, in my honest opinion.

  • Ray

    I mean “thank”

  • belle

    not even an american but happy obama got re elected

  • June Carter

    Good choice! Greetings from Germany :)

    The middle class is screwed with Obama. So congrats, you votes who voted for him have officially dug your own grave. And this will come back to haunt you. And its our generation that is going to suffer for it.
