^come on dude. WHy do you republicans come up with such silly crap?

You always cast your opponenets as God hating satanist that sacrifice lambs. No wonder your party is falling apart. America has grown up. The majority of us are no longer racist, or let religion get in the way of our politics.

Its only significant if you still view other people in racist terms.

I think it's amazing we elected a black man, but for me personally (as a white person), his skin color had NOTHING to do with why I elected him. I'm fairly confident I'm not alone here.

He stands for so many things in which I believe. Talking instead of fighting. Bringing the whole world to the table instead of just pronouncing out your desires and demands upon them as if slaves to your power.

I'm eleated Bush will finally be gone, and we have a FRESH face in power who speaks for the younger generation, and all those in our country who have never had their voice heard. They're just as much Americans as you and I.

It might turn out a disaster, but in the end at least we took the initiative and worked to change our country. It really says a lot, and the world right now is quite amazed and impressed that after heading down a road for 8 years - we ARE capable of turning around and once again reinventing ourselves and what we stand for.

Woohoo!

I voted for McCain, but a big majority of my fellow Americans chose otherwise and put Obama in office. I accept that and will support him as the people's choice. I will pray for him as he faces the formidable challenges awaiting his administration. I believe he will represent all Americans and I believe he will do his best for our nation. I believe McCain would've done the same. For the first time in my adult life (I'm 64) I feel we had a choice between two good candidates. Usually it's been a choice of the lesser evil between two poor candidates.

He refers to himself as a "mutt." That tells me he isn't the 1st AA President, but he definitely is the first "mutt" to be elected.

President Obama is gonna take this country out of the ****hole it is in today. I wish Bush has a depressing retirment...I hope he cant sleep at night. He has the blood of countless Americans and foreigners on his hands. If you saw the celebrations in different parts of the world you would then know what this election will mean in history. This can put America back in the hearts of the rest of the world. Mr. Obama Houston has your back.

Obamma will not ruin the country but he will not do a darn thing for it either. He has no experience. He's black. Woouptee dooo. Finally we got that behind us. Next election lets focus on somebody with some experience and a plan to help our country.

I loved the mutt comment. America is primarily a nation of mutts, I believe that is part of what makes us a great country.

I must say though that I am disappointed in the reactions to Obama's win. I naively believed that America had really gotten beyond race. Since yesterday however I seen people say how happy they that a black man won, not that they are happy that the man who they felt was the best candidate won. This demonstrates that people are as racist as ever. The only thing that has changed is the flavor of racism.
i still love this...i take it this cat doesn't live in a big city?
