  1. Congratulations to the Obama camp

    Commiserations to the McCain camp.

    From a British point of view i hope now we can stop being Bush s lapdog and can act independently of the US when it comes to Iraq

    Afghanistan is a lost cause.

    Its an entirely different ball game to Iraq

    British troops are ill equipped to fight this war , the MOD has failed to supply equipment which is suited to the task

    Everyone thought it was going to be too close, myself included. Boy, was i wrong.

    MSNBC called it at 10pm.

    McCain concession speach at/around 10:15 central time.

    I must admit, McCain's concession speach was excellent.
    He should have spoke more like that through the campaign.

    Owell, now all these McCain vs Obama debates can end.

    Now i get to go rub it in at work. Today is good.

    it was closer than I expected, or the polls showed

    I didnt expect to know for sure until this morning. However McCain conceeded last night. That surprised me.

    Only 3 or 4 states were still not in when i woke up at 630. My state and few others.

    Popular was pretty close.

    Electorally, well thats a different story.

  8. I thought they called ohio earlier than they should have and it did end up quite close, but pennsylvania and ohio were why he conceeded that early

  9. to give kristofer some perspective... here is a list of popular vote margins
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ar_vote_margin

    most other than bush were quite a bit higher than obama's margin, so unless you believe every president has had a mandate, sorry no mandate here. Had obama broken the 10% margin in popular vote, i would have felt it was a mandate even if I didn't agree with it

    Mandate scmandate, it was a decisive victory that was over by 11:00 est. The key word being victory.

    :bruce3:

  11. I think its time to put this discussion to bed.Obama is President Elect end of story. He will remain in power for 4 years .During that time Palin is said to be getting her act together with her sights firmly on the White House.I think you should start worrying (speaking from a British perspective)

  12. If Palin runs and or wins in 2012, the Republican party will be in shambles for 25 years.

    no telling really, like 5 years ago anyone would have believed that a black man with known terrorist and mob friends would have been elected would have sounded ridiculous.... depending on how the next 4 shape up, and how Sarah acts in the interim could make a huge difference.

    Plus she doesn't necessarily have to run herself, she can be a face for the RNC. A fundraiser + rally-er for house + senate candidates for 2010.

    I dont think 7% is close at all...

  16. He won, McCain lost...get over it.

    The people voiced their wants and it's now time to move on and make the best of it.

    If it doesn't turn out to be a good choice then we start again in 2012 like the forefathers planned.

    Give the guy a break -let him prove himself. He surely carnt make it worse for you than Bush did.

    He wont be running the country single handed , he ll be well supported by civil servants, political advisors etc etc to advise and if necessary correct any decisions before they are announced.

    You make it sound like he's running around with Bin Ladin doing jaegger bombs or something. You've blown the whole friends with terrorist thing way out of proportion.

  19. ..........and he's half cast. Not black.

  20. Black shouldnt be an issue -he has been elected because most voters think he his the man for the job-similarly if he was chinese, spanish even homosexual , race or sexual orientation shouldnt enter into it.
    This is the 21 st century after all but sometimes i get the feeling that some are living in the dark ages and havent moved with the times.

    Fully agree. Sometimes, it is very frustrating to read political comments some members post here. You end up asking yourself what happened to logical thinking, communication skills, and a sense of decorum!

    Completely agree. Obama's electoral success was not due to the colour of his skin. Black votes alone could never have made him President-elect. Whites, Hispanics, and others, simply saw him as the better candidate for the Presidency at this juncture in the history of the US.

    Starting your political career in the living room of a political bomber of your own country who says "his only regret was that he didn't do more"... Read about they actually did, and tell me that he's not a terrorist...

    Your views sometimes make me shudder! If you state your views like this on an online forum, I do not want to know what you would do and say in the confines of your home or similar-thinking inner circle!
