Barack Obama Elected President!

Barack Obama took the presidency tonight after breakthrough wins in Ohio and Virginia. At 8 p.m. PST, as soon as the polls closed in California, Oregon and Washington, the networks called the election of President Barack Obama. Republican candidate John McCain suffered losses in Ohio, the state that narrowly gave President George W. Bush victory in 2004, but also in key states like Pennsylvania, Iowa and New Mexico.

There are a number of Senate seats that have not yet been decided, and we will keep on top of that, but for now congratulations to the Democrats and Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States.

Hotpink90210, bigots like you had their time and now it's about over. Racists and extremists like you who have such loud brash voices in today's society are on your way down. You may not disappear in my day or my children's but be assured you will. You are out of touch with America and the rest of the world and you are on your way out. So yell, scream, make a fuss... This day, this man has proven your growing ineffectuality.

Last night was rough, but it was a good rough, its amazing to be an american and to be able to log on to my computer and share all the ups and downs with fellow conservatives and a few liberals! I have always been proud to live in this country and who can deny the passion we all have for it? Not after this presidential race thats for sure!
