Obama Takes It!

When my mom called to tell me that Obama had taken the election I told her that I was going to wait until the last ballot had been tallied. Then I turned the television back on the news and saw McCain give up the ghost, which was his Presidential hopes. And not only did Obama win, but he whooped that ass. I gotta admit that I felt a little bit sorry for McCain. He had to be thinking, “What if…”

You know, I am way behind on my blog readings, but I guess I don’t have to check on my fellow bloggers to see what they will be talking about tomorrow, huh. Anyway, I choose this song because it fit’s the mood and makes me wanna cry all at the same time.

I am so proud of Americans that they were able to put down their racist beliefs and take a chance on something new. But it ain’t over people Now we gotta pray even harder that they allow him not only make it to the Inaugural Ball, but give him his a shot at four years. I hope he doesn’t have to become a martyr to make a difference.

Make no mistake people. God is good. All the time.

-One Man’s Opinion. Peace.

lol - I think "give up the ghost" means he died. Ironic since that's what we fear about our ba-ROCK. He didn't just take it, he whoopeded mccain with palin's wig.

YES WE DID!

Did you see the faces in Chicago? Did you see the tears running down cheeks? Did you see everyone coming together to elect BARACK OBAMA!?!

It's not a trick, it's not a bunch of white folks conspiring to give our mess of a country to the "black guy" so they can blame it on him. It's not. It's people like you and me and all the rest of our intelligent bloggers and friends and family who believed in a man with the ability to inspire a nation to be better, and to do better regardless of skin color.

Remember that today on your journey into work. We can, and we did and he is the next President of the United States!

I don't know about anyone else but I loved to see the look of defeat on McCain's face.

That coupled with the fact that Obama was elected as President has me on cloud nine this morning.

I hope so too.. I hope he'll never hear one of his audience members say: "Get your hand out of my pocket!" - ifyouknowwhatImean ;)

greetings from the netherlands!

I can't wait to read about this in my son's history book! I'll be able to tell him, I lived through this and have the magazines and newspapers to prove it.

God IS good.

What a night, what a day, still riding that high. Proud of all the people who got out and got their vote on.

It's a disgrace that he had to be swathed in bullet proof glass , with snipers, during his speech.

I think that he was 'put in' by powerful puppeteers who want t use him for their own agendas.

Eb the Celeb said...

that's what boggled me so much about the whole experience is that i wasnt even close... i couldnt believe it... whooping mccain's ass is an understatement

America is slowly but surely coming around...now if we can judge same gender loving people by the content of "THEIR" character we'll be alright. :::sigh::::

Madam Z said...

Oh dear, One Man. Don't even think about that martyr business. That would be so terribly horrible I can't stand to think about it.
I don't believe in God, but if I did, I would ask him to put a bulletproof shield around Obama at all times for the next four or eight years.

In the meantime, I'm just going to be happy, happy that BaROCK (thank you, Jack) won and will be our president! He's got a biiiiigg job ahead of him, cleaning up the mess he inherited.

Wow.
I am an American, and I never had any racist beliefs. I have three mixed race children, and when people said their lives would be "hard" - including their own nutjob of a deadbeat dad who insisted I terminate so that another "black" child would not have to live in an oppressive world - I laughed in their faces. Why? I knew better then, and I know even more now. We are limited by what our eyes behold, instead of following what we feel in our hearts. We certainly do not exercise all of the gifts we were born with (love).

I am sure you have seen your share of horror stories as a law enforcement officer, but please, try a new approach when you think of your fellow Americans...you know, the majority of us who actually voted for Obama and know he is fully capable of leading this nation back to the United States of America it is supposed to be.
Everything is part of God's perfect plan brother. Even YOU : )
Peace, Cas

I think he's just fantastic too.

freemanpress said...

I just wonder if people will take all that effort and apply it to their neighborhood or did it die when the news stations called it for Obama.
