It's funny how much the African-Americans really know, when they say they are so proud and happy to finally vote for a black president. Hes actually more white then he is black, because he was raised by his mother who is white.

It's not the point how he was raised or how he acts. Prejudice is blind. Being that his mother is white and his father is black, and many people have more resentment toward that, it is even more of a feat for him to be elected to office.

Typhon is right. The president is just a tool, it's the people in the rear that do the deed. And no, they don't care about us; politicians all come from the same pack of liars.

LOL my mom always tell me, "if you want to be a politician, you have to learn how to lie." I guess that's what politicians do best.

"It was unfortunate John McCain was too nice throughout the campaign, and it cost him the Presidency."

McCain was a total dick in his campaign. Should've talked about what he was going to do instead of just bashing Obama.

Both of them should've done WAY more fact giving in their campaign than they did, but McCains ads were NOTHING but bashing. I can't particularily remember a single commercial that wasn't bashing.

Thank goodness this crap is over with. They should make a law now that campaigning can't start until 6 months before the election. Absolutely stupid for this crap to go on for 2 years!!

And, no, I DIDN'T vote for either one of these characters, but yes, I DID vote for President.

Well someone has to do it. The media wasn't going to criticize him. They were to busy talking about Palin's clothes.

Thank God!, let's hope Obama & the rest of the Dumocrats screw up the US economy even more, I was sick and tired of hearing all this biased in the media towards Obama, the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ has arrived and he's now President Elect of the USA and he's Black. hey maybe Obama can get rid of those secret service agents and replace them with Black Panther bodyguards who'll work for half the price a SS agent would.
wonder if Oprah will get a cabinet post, or maybe she'll be Obama's press secretary, Jesse Jackson can be Secretary of Defense and Hillary for Secretary of State. It's gonna be an interesting 4 years, maybe they'll change the constitution to have Obama server more than 2 terms, after all it's gonna take more than just 2 terms to complete the change of America, if Bloomberg can do it, why can't Obama.

Yea, go crawl back under whatever rock you crawled out from under, xpablo. Your friends the Neo-Con Criminals have had eight years to rape the US treasury and shred the US constitution; Now their time is drawing to a close.
Bush out! Obama in!

Cant wait for socialized medicine. When do i get my check from the rich?

I know a guy who voted for him just because he was black. He said if we have a black president then the world wouldnt think we are racists. I said the rest of the world is as racists as the USA. He just dropped it. Way to vote.

So we should redistribute money from people we think have more than enough? The problem with health care is the cost. Obviously the market for health care isnt reflecting what people can pay. As long as people are trying to figure a way to pay for it instead of figuring a way of driving the costs down how is it going to get better?

His skin colour is brown, no such thing as black skin.

I wish in Britain that we would elect a candidate that was brown/afro caribbean.

It would never happen in my lifetime, which goes to prove that the majority of Americans are fair, not racist and have voted on policy rather than anything else.

If you're asking if people with more money should pay higher taxes than poorer people, then yes.

I am one of the few members of my family that makes less than $200K/yr, and most of them make much more. I have spoken to many wealthy people and they have been surprisingly forward on the issue. They and their peers laugh at people like you. Make no mistake, redistribution of wealth has always been, and it always flows up. You are just to blind to see it.

and on the flip side, I'm sure you know guys who voted against him just because he was black. It works both ways.
