Obama wins US election

Democrat Barack Obama made history Tuesday night with a decisive election victory over Republican John McCain, becoming the nation’s first African-American president-elect after an epic campaign that saw him rise from relative political obscurity to claim the world’s most powerful political office.

The 47-year-old Illinois senator, who will become the 44th president, was propelled to victory after capturing the battleground states of Ohio and Pennsylvania, wins that dealt McCain’s hopes of becoming president a back-breaking blow.

No Republican has ever won the White House without winning the Buckeye State and its 20 electoral votes.

    Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones
    Prison Planet.com
    Tuesday, November 4, 2008

    The messianic fervor which has preceded Barack Obama’s expected ascension to the White House has alarming implications for freedom and is a painful reminder that most Americans have once again been suckered into believing that the two-party monopoly offers any kind of solution to the crisis that we face.

    For eight years during the term of Bill Clinton, Alex Jones was labeled a right-wing fascist for opposing him and for the past near-eight years Jones has been derided as a communist and even an Al-Qaeda member for railing against the Bush administration.

    Now even regular readers of our own websites are calling Alex a right-wing racist once again merely for questioning the ascension of the new great leader – Barack Obama.

    The messianic complex that has been attached to Obama is truly frightening. Bishops like Cornal Garnett Henning are calling Obama the new “Moses” while his supporters refer to him as “the black Jesus”.

    In one You Tube clip, a woman hails Obama’s Godly powers by proclaiming that as soon as he is elected, all her problems will simply disappear, saying that Obama will help her personally almost like Jesus healed the sick and wounded.

    The election of a new president should not be a mindless act of idolatry and fanfare, it should be a solemn commitment to find a leader who will follow the Constitution.

    But Barack Obama will ride into office with a gigantic approval rating to rival that of Bush after 9/11, along with a complete power monopoly over the executive, the legislative, the judicial as well as widespread media support.

    This makes Obama more dangerous than Bush and certainly a damn site more dangerous than a McCain administration, because his policies for at least a year or two will enjoy universal acclaim and voices of dissent will be drowned out by a wave of droning acquiescence.

    Obama has all the political capital he needs to implement the terrifying policies that he has already announced and beef the architecture of the police state crafted by Bush.

    - The creation of a “civilian national security force” that is “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the U.S. military to enforce Obama’s carbon tax scheme and the total regulation and control of the American middle class.

    - Obama has talked openly about his intention to bomb Pakistan under the guise of pursuing terrorists, continuing a Bush administration policy of violating the sovereignty of foreign nations.

    - The guarantee to “bankrupt” coal power plants, costing millions of American jobs and skyrocketing energy prices.

    - Unbridled implementation and expansion of the banker bailout that is hated by the majority of American citizens yet was vigorously promoted by both Obama and McCain. Doling out taxpayer’s money to Wall Street, causing rampant inflation, a lowering in living standards and the destruction of the dollar.

    - Obama has rhetorically supported the second amendment and an individual’s right to bear arms, but his actions tell a different story. Obama supports local gun ban laws, including his endorsement of a state ban on the sale and possession of handguns in Illinois.

    - Obama grandstands on the notion that he supports environmentalism with his climate change rhetoric, but his intention to extend biofuel subsidies will only accelerate price food costs that have already risen 75 per cent since 2002, causing economic distress and rioting in such countries as Haiti, Egypt, and Somalia, as well as deforestation on a massive scale.

    Mark our words – the causes that the liberal left has been fighting for over the last eight years will simply be forgotten just like conservatives were put to sleep when Bush came to power. Obama is the pacifier that the establishment needs to quiet the simmering anger amongst Americans that has been threatening to boil over.

    It will no longer be “fashionable” to fight the police state amongst the political left.

    Mark our words – there will be no repeal of the Patriot Act, there will be no repeal of the John Warner Defense Authorization Act, there will be no repeal of warrantless secret surveillance of American citizens.

    Democratic control of Congress and the Senate since the 2006 elections has achieved nothing in the way of reversing the Bush administration’s assaults on the Constitution, so why should we expect Obama to do anything different?

    Obama may eventually withdraw a portion of troops from Iraq but mark our words, they won’t be home long before they are sent off to bomb another broken-backed third world country, this time in the name of a United Nations-backed “humanitarian” war, just as Bill Clinton presided over in Somalia and Serbia with the full support of the establishment political left.

    Indeed, Obama’s running mate Joe Biden has already “promised” and “guaranteed” that Obama will be faced with an international crisis that will mandate him to take “unpopular” and “tough” decisions in the context of foreign policy.

    Don’t think for a second that our warnings about Obama are an endorsement for John McCain. We have tirelessly attempted to educate Americans about the two party monopoly and the fact that Democrats and Republicans serve the interests of the elite, not the people, and have for at least five decades since Kennedy was killed.

    Obama is Coca-Cola and McCain is Pepsi – at the end of the day you’re still drinking the same beverage.

    The two-party monopoly offers no solutions for the problems we face, in fact the two-party monopoly that you will be helping to maintain should you vote for either Obama or McCain – is the problem.

    Stop falling for the same bait and switch trick again and again every eight years.

    When George W. Bush was elected, conservatives were in adulation and awe, confident that after eight years of federal government expansion under Clinton, Bush – complete with slick conservative rhetoric and promises of change – would shrink the size of government and restore dignity to the office of President.

    Nearly eight years later and what have we witnessed, a record expansion in the size of government and an almost universal contempt for America around the world.

    When Tony Blair swept into power with a landslide in the British general election in 1997, the country breathed a collective sigh of relief that this new young dynamo would put right years of Tory malfeasance and provide the “change” that everyone was crying out for.

    When Blair left office in 2007 he had created a Socialist surveillance police state and eliminated a huge popular approval lead the Labour Party had enjoyed over the Tories, leaving most of the public once again to demand Conservative rule.

    When are we going to wake up to the fact that voting in the lesser of two evils is not a solution?

    When are we going to realize that participating in a rigged system, where our vote means virtually nothing anyway because it is counted by a completely compromised and hackable voting machine, not only fails to address any of our problems, but actually compounds them because of our passive obedience in participating in the phony virtual reality presented to us as “democracy”?

    When are we going to realize that by continually electing Democrats and Republicans, we are voting away our own freedom as the march towards a new world order and an American police state proceeds no matter who takes office?

    Finally the BUSH-reign has come to an end and so does the last years of republican policy. No more making fun of the stupicity of the dumbo president. Time for fresh and young democrats to show what they’re worth. The first black president in the white house, that is a great step for mankind. I did think his speech was rather weak and a bit screamy. McCain was even more emotional, but the best man has won the elections. And Amen to that. May he lead your America to a brighter future. :D I am wickido, and I approve this message.

    and as far as jobs and opportunity goes you all have of course heard of affirmitave action right. this gives minorities the right to jobs first. forcing employers to have a certain ammount of minorty employees.

    and of course there is the whole college thing. you do realize that you are able to get money to go to college just because you are black right. NAACP, and financial aid is much more open to ethnic students.

    when i went to college all i was about to get was a student loan for less than $900 a semester. because i could not qualify for more even though i only came from a family with around $50-$75k a year income. if a black were to come from the same income level home they would still get fasfa and naacp grants.

    and this has been the case for about 30 or more years now. that is 2 generations that have had everything there for them, given the advantage over everyone else. so if you can’t make the most of it then don’t cry.

    nothing will change about any of this under obama. the percentage of below the poverty line minorities will stay the same, probably increase cause they all thing they will get more now. so what better has that done our country. billions of dollars will go to take care of people who have no desire to do anything for themselves and just assume the government do it for them.

    @86 unfortuanat;y the majority vote was quite close however the stupidity we have as the electoral colledge decided the real canidate either way and as it was already said it would be Obama. As a american I can onlyhope that everybody voted to the person they felt would be the best president but many of my white skinned freind and people of multiple different ethnicities voted because they thought a “African-American” was what we needed to change. Well as a “Black” man or as I call my self an American (notice the lack of african before that) whatever the outcome i only whish that everyone would have voted for the man they feel would have done the best job instead of the color of thier skin.
    P.S. My fellow Americans check the number ofpeople that voted from this election to last. I only whish that my fellow ethicitities would have voted every year we would have not had bush. check the local records of ethnic percentages and see!!

    I can only hope that those of you who were to blinded to see the less of two evils made the right choice by voting your racist “color for change” vote.

    oh yeah and we have the technology to keep track of the common vote anybody know what the hell we still have the electoral colledge for???

    @92

    The problem is that Obama’s socialist approach only further encourages deadbeats, regardless of race, to not apply themselves and support themselves. Instead relying on the government by more heavily taxing those of us that actually work. You can put a cute title to it like ‘Sharing the wealth’, but his socialist approach is incredibly dangerous and is in contrast to what made this country successful. Small businesses and capitalism is what makes this country the force that has become, taxing these small businesses into the ground to support those that are able but unwilling to support themselves will destroy this country – what do you think happens to all of these small businesses if they can’t grow and succeed because of the huge burden that our own government puts on them? They cease to exist and so does the millions of jobs that they create.

    This has nothing to do with a man’s race or racism, Obama’s vision for what our government’s role should be is terrifying.

    i don’t live in the usa but this victory does effect the world. Finally there is a black president. Even if he doesn’t end up being the best president, atleast he was able to show that not just old white people can become president.

    @ 94, dude chill, you can’t say he is the biggest mistake since he has only been in the white house for a few hours. Honestly if he did nothing at all other than sit in his chair and visit his facebook account it would be better than what george w bush did, and yes most people probably didn’t want to see another white president becuz all they have done was f**k the usa up and take the world with them, and howz he a racist, if anything u are a racist.

    @ 92, people didn’t just vote for obama becuz he’s black, if that was the case why is he the first black president, most of us actually believed he wouldn’t win, not becuz of his claims but rather becuz the usa were not ready for a black president, im glad that im wrong.

    TO ALL, why are we even having this talk, hes president and thats it, lets give him his 4 years and then talk about how he did, we gave bush his 4 and they were the worse four so far. and seriously who the hell would wanna vote for McCain he is like 72 years old, damn he won’t even make the four years in office.

    p.s. im a white aussie half filo, so you can’t say im biest in anyway.

    Ok so I voted for McCain not because I liked him personally, but rather that he stood for LOVING AMERICA as I do. Now that Obama is coming to office it’s time that the black Americans give up their hold on the white Americans. I don’t want to hear about how “the black Man” is kept from anything anymore and I want to see my children be able to get jobs based on their education and abilities and not be turned away because they are not what is needed to fill a “Statistical Quota” deemed by the Government to ensure that there is equal opportunity for all Americans, but has worked to effectively put lesser educated and unqualified individuals into jobs based solely on their ethnicity. I don’t want to hear one word on “because I am black I…” to long have we Americans lived in fear of being called prejudiced and when we question or challenge A black American it always turns into a racial issue. There is no “color” anymore just Americans so lets act like it and treat all of America as equals and not single out one race as being in need of SPECIAL TLC attention, basically you mess up you get called on it as an American not because you white, black or green. Oh and one more thing no more African American either your either American or your African pick one.

    You claim that people did not vote for him merely for the color of his skin, but in your own post you basically contradict yourself and show exactly the reasoning that many people used to vote for him based on his race. Race should not be a factor, but the reality is that it was for a lot of people for the same ridiculous reasons that you give – ‘people around the world will now look at the US differently’, ‘finally a black president’, ‘not an old white guy’, blah blah blah. I don’t give a crap what race he is, I care what his policies are, what his track record is, and what direction he wants to take our country in. And those things, not his race, are disturbing.

I voted for him not because of race and so did most of the people around me. If it was about race then how come all the prior black candidates didn’t win?

As a person I respect Obama. Hes a good family man and Im sure he will put his plans into actions but I think that before people went to the ballot boxes they should’ve really considered many things as far as the long term instead of voting out of obligation, spite and popularity. I do applaud the fact that hes the first African American president but I really think that fact alone is why he won the presidency. I have nicknamed this election the “Hollywood Election”.

Out of the billion+ in the world? Some of you guys are just pathetic and showing your own true colors of cowardice and fear/fearmongering. The “he got voted cause he’s black” is just as pathetic. Polls indicate majority voted for him because they’re fed up of how the republicans have screwed things up so severely over the past 8 years – two unwinnable wars, one of the worst financial crises in history, worldwide support of the US at a massive low point. The fact is they screwed up. BAD. Only a bigotted hatemongering fear filled idiot would continue to vote for that.

    @79 Thank you finally someone realizes why Obama was elected. With that being said, I hate how everyone who is against Obama is labeled a racist. And how the media talked so much about people not voting for Obama because he’s black, when in reality that’s where the majority of his votes came. Yes this race was based on race and that’s a very large part of how Obama won. He got about 96 percent of the black vote because of his plans for the economy? Because of how he plans to handle the war in Iraq? Because of his stance on foreign relations? NO, but because he is black. So yes this election was based on racism, I would also be willing to bet that at least 30 percent of those voters did not vote in the last election. Not to mention about 70 percent of his votes were from voters between the ages of 18-29. These are the college students (as am I) who grew up with Bush. The word change is the only thing that they are basing their vote on, that and because he is younger than Senator Mccaine. The majority of my friends voting for Obama new little of his policies and stances on important political issues, what they do know however is that he’s a democrat, and because Mccaine is republican he is exactly like Bush, or at least that’s what they’ve come to believe. It’s sad but its true. And yes he won fair and square, I’m not saying he didn’t, but I do believe if this was a blind ballot and voters voted on the number of beliefs, policies, and stances on important issues rather than just their names, that it would be a completely different outcome. Although it will never happen America would be a much better place if this is how we voted.

    @116

    John McCain and George Bush are not the same person, I know that’s the best Obama’s campaign had to offer but clearly that and the media’s desire for Obama to succeed were more than enough for the average lemming. You’re being a hypocrite in your manner of lumping McCain in as equally responsible for our current situation as Bush’s administration itself & then use the expression of ‘getting one over the ‘other guys’ for those of us that don’t support Obama. I’m not a huge supporter of McCain, but I recognize that he’s an infinitely better candidate to lead our country than Obama, and it has nothing to do with Obama’s political party or getting one over ‘the other guys’.

    This whole race has been won based on knee-jerk overreactions, there have been some problems with the current administration and suddenly the country feels the need to go so far in the opposite direction as to elect someone with serious socialist views. Absolutely disturbing. It’s incredible, among other things, the total lack of both foresight and historical perspective voters have in current times when they make such drastic reactions to vote in someone with such flawed philosophies for the role our government should play in our lives.

    In the current state, the people with the most money are very much likely to be election candidates. How is that fair? How is that democracy? You live in a corrupt and enslaved society and you’re doing nothing about it. People are dying over the all-mighty dollar. Why? I doesn’t have to be like that.

    Like the Obama campaign ironically states, “Change”. Change, people. Get away from your handpicked officials and do something about your core problems. Obama and Cain are in essence only concerned about oil/money. How original.

    Please, just change before it’s too late.

    November 5th, 2008 | 13:27

    I honestly don’t think there’s a lot of racism here.. the really scary thing is all this talk about the Rockerfeller Foundation and other lame-ass “secret government” conspiracy theories concocted by snake-oil salesmen to make money from their books and DVDs and get some attention, and parroted word for word by mindless sheeple, who ironically say “we know the truth” even though nothing can be proven except their own gullibility.

    Let’s not miss the important things here.. which is NOT who got elected per se. Come on, laws and culture take TIME to change to any great extent (unless of course you declare war on someone) so you can vote him out in another 4 years if you want.

    No, the important things are:

    1) he’s black, and that’s a good sign for reconciliation and healing some old wounds in the country – let’s hope for better race relations and good will.

    2) People actually came out to vote. People were inspired. Citizens learned that democracy can work – at least the thing we call democracy which is basically choosing between Bill and Ben.

    There are still very serious things going on which probably won’t change:

    1) Voting is still TOO HARD. It’s on a weekday coz of some archaic rule concerning horse-drawn carriages and the Sabbath, instead of on a weekend where everyone has time to vote.

    2) It’s still all about *personality* not *policies*. I’ve heard and seen a lot of commentary and interviews with people – only the professional pundits talk about the policies. The average person says sh1t like “I don’t trust him” or “he’s too old” or “she’s annoying”. Or worse, “he’s a socialist” just because someone says so, without knowing what socialism even IS! I haven’t seen any indication of the average person knowing *anything* about the actual policies of the PARTIES they are voting in. You’re voting for a PARTY not a person! But it’s all about who looks better on Letterman.

    So while I think this is a great and historic occasion, and I think a lot will change in terms of foreign relations in the short term, I don’t believe a lot will change in the long term, except taking some steps back to respectability in the eyes of the world.

    Apart from that, it’s probably going to be business as usual (even if he is assassinated – not like it hasn’t happened before in America).

    I swear, the people are their own worst enemy. Maybe that’s why we need so many laws and so much consumerism to keep us in line and relatively amused, lest we tear ourselves to pieces.

    But, for this moment in time, we can believe that there is some kind of hope for the future of our civilisation. That’s probably the best things we can try to hold onto out of this.

    i love how people keep saying “he was elected because he is black”…but i mean, would we expect anything else from these idiots? of COURSE the minute a black president is EVER elected people will say “its only because he is black” these people are just as stupid as the people who would say “he lost because he is black” if he had lost. I guess they have little faith in the american people. they REALLY think that your citizens are so stupid as to only elect a person because he is black…and lets just say that is the case…if they are that stupid, its their country, let em! btu we all know that is NOT the case. at all. you can pretend all you want but the man with better policys, the one with less mudslinging and desparate last ditch attempts to win, won! The man who actually SPEAKS like a president should. The man who actually looks like he REALLY gives a crap about our people. He won. deal with it. If you cant see you are just blind, bitter, and probably a little racist…i mean if you werent you wouldnt even be enterTAINING the fact that “he only won because he is black”. You are bring colour into this. you are the one who still has some sort of problem with colour. If obama was white, he STILL would have won. he is clearly the better man. did this EVER occur to you?!?! that maybe the better man won?? no no…i guess its always got to be about colour…its sad really. you people are pathetic. just grow up.

    How is it possible that almost everyone that dissed Obama in this post is an American, and almost all of his supporters here are foreigners?

    A couple of other comments to this post and its replies:

    1. Most of Americans don’t even know what socialism is (they think they know just because some people said it on TV)
    2. Whether you like Obama or not, you all have to admit that America has gone a long way since it’s slavery days.
    3. From what I’ve seen on the campaigns, McCain & Palin bashed Obama on almost every single rally (and they definitely went overboard, because McCain had to actually calm down the people when an old woman yelled out “terrorist” when he said Obama’s name), and Obama never mentioned that Palin had a “witch exorcism” and that she was charged with abuse of power, not to mention McCain’s bloopers
    4. I can’t believe how much th people that replied here believe what they see on TV (Obama is NOT a socialist, Marxist, Muslim and whatever the hell the McCain campaign and it’s followers had accused him of being)
    5. Obama won, deal with it, and don’t post stuff like
    “THIS IS END FOR USA !!!!!!!!!
    WHITE POWER !!
    WHITE HATE OBAMA !!!”
    Things like this are why the the world happily welcomes President Obama, and it is for the same reasons that America has fallen of of it’s high horse in the past years. A lot (not all) of you think that whatever the world thinks of you doesn’t matter, or that the world automatically loves you because you’re Americans and you’re above us, better than, but it’s high time that you realize that to be respected, you have to respect, and that no life is worth more than any other, and from what I’ve read about Obama’s policies, he will get you started.

    I expect a lot of replies to my post from hot-headed people that can’t seem to get it into their heads that Obama won’t screw up America any more than it already is, because it’s almost impossible. I mean, your international standing is almost at 0, you’re at the head of the economic crisis, which you for the better part, created. And these are just some of your major problems, not to mention the smaller, but still important ones.

    to deny that a major reason he was elected was that he is black is pretty ignorant.

    how many people of ethic backgrounds do you think voted in this election compared to the past. i would bet that it was about a 5000% increase in voters of ethic backgrounds. you hear these guys on the radio getting interviewed as to why they voted for obama and all they can say is “change” come on now.

    i have mentioned this before that obama is known for having many radicals affiliated to him. i am sure they will all start coming out of the woodwork very soon. after he gets this tax plan of his passed it will cripple our economy. taking from employers and giving to deadbeats that don’t work. like that is going to help anything. it will only cause employers to make cuts like reducing wages and increasing cost of healthcare.

    don’t any of you people see that. the money he is planning to take from corporate america has to be balanced from somewhere. so the working class will be the biggest to suffer from this not the below poverty or rich population the people who work jobs everyday and live paycheck to paycheck. they will be the ones paying for the difference.

    also i bet that the numbers of voters that were on welfare or getting assistance was like 5000% more than in previous elections. it is estimated that 10% of america live off the system and so that would be 30million. obama recieved 62million votes. so it is safe to say close to one third of the voters for obama were welfare recipients.

    In 1999, 68.8 percent of black American children were born out of wedlock. By contrast, the out-of-wedlock birth rate for white Americans was 26.7 percent.In 1999, according to the U.S. Bureau of the Census, 33.1 percent of black children lived in poverty compared with 13.5 percent of white children.

    heres how backwards his policies are , he understands nothin of them ..
    taxes
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=po7J0f5TMrQ

    And some concerns you should have about this actor..
    1.Barack Obama’s judgment about personal and professional affiliations is more than troubling

    2. Barack Obama’s Iraq policy will hand al-Qaeda a victory and undercut our entire position in the Middle East, while at the same time put a huge source of oil in the hands of terrorists.

    3. Barack Obama’s foreign policy is dangerous, naïve, and betrays a profound misreading of history

    4. Obama is simply out of step with how terrorists should be handled; he would turn back the clock on how we fight terrorism, using the failed strategy of the 1990s as opposed to the post-9/11 strategy that has kept us safe.Ask the legal officials during the 1990s just how cowed terrorists were by our continued indictments against them. Or, witness the bombings at the African embassies, the attack on the USS Cole, or the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Now, ask yourself why we have not been attacked since 9/11, and, even more specifically, why there have been no successful attacks against American civilian interests abroad since 2004

    5 Barack Obama is actually to the left of every member of the U.S. Senate. According to the National Journal, “Sen. Barack Obama…was the most liberal senator in 2007.” As the magazine reported: “The ratings system — devised in 1981 under the direction of William Schneider, a political analyst and commentator, and a contributing editor to National Journal — also assigns ‘composite’ scores, an average of the members’ issue-based scores. In 2007, Obama’s composite liberal score of 95.5 was the highest in the Senate. Rounding out the top five most liberal senators last year were Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse (D., R.I.), with a composite liberal score of 94.3; Joseph Biden (D., Del.), with a 94.2; Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), with a 93.7; and Robert Menendez (D., N.J.), with a 92.8.

    Obama is just a skilled orator, a trait that has earned him a devout following in a party largely comprised of atheists. When Barack Obama opens his mouth to speak, liberals’ ears seem to filter out the message and listen only to the words in a hypnotic trance. Their devotion to Obama mimics that of radical Christians to Jesus Christ. Criticize Obama to a liberal Obama supporter, and it’s as if you’ve questioned the existence of God, only the resulting argument is much angrier and holds far less intellectual merit. It’s more like telling an environmentalist that chaining himself to a tree won’t save the earth, or informing a war protester that no one in Washington cares what he or she thinks. It isn’t Obama’s following that is of the most concern, however. A public speaker as smooth as Obama will inspire fans on his own talents. Let’s remember, however, that Barack Obama was a lawyer before he became a senator. And, like most lawyers, his words are best when rehearsed.

    So what accomplishments does Obama have to merit the rewards he has received? He gets lots of accolades, but what has he done to earn them? To use a sports analogy, Obama is like a college benchwarmer with no stats who gets drafted in the first round and is given a huge signing bonus. Now he is on the verge of possibly being named Most Valuable Player without a single significant accomplishment to his name.So pathetic.

    November 5th, 2008 | 16:30

    Barack Obama’s list of “accomplishments” is really just a bunch of unearned rewards. I’m not breaking any new ground here I’m just looking at it from a slightly different angle. Let’s review:

    When Obama returned from Indonesia at age ten, he began attending Punahou School, an elite prep school. Allegedly he was given a scholarship because his family was too poor to afford the tuition. But that begs the question: what was the scholarship based on?

    After graduating from Punahou, Obama began attending Occidental College, a private school in Southern California. Occidental is a pretty good school but it’s no Ivy League University. According to Joseph Cannon, Occidental is a school for rich kids whose grades aren’t good enough to qualify for USC (University of Spoiled Children.) We don’t have any records from Occidental to look at, but by Obama’s own admission he didn’t exactly distinguish himself at that school.

    Then he turns up at Columbia, which is an Ivy League University. Once again, we have no records to go by, so it’s unclear how Obama qualified to get into Columbia and what he did while he was there. We know he attended and that he graduated, but that’s about it. His first full-time jobs may offer a clue, however.

    According to Wikipedia, after graduating from Columbia Obama worked for a year at the Business International Corporation and then at the New York Public Interest Research Group. According to what I have read, neither job was particularly prestigious or highly paid. He then moved to Chicago to organize the community, but by his own admission was basically a failure.

    This is where it starts to get really weird. He gets accepted to Harvard Law School, but once again we have no records to explain how he got into what is arguably the best law school in the country. While there he becomes an editor and then President of the Harvard Law Review. That would seem to be an impressive accomplishment except for the fact that he never published anything!

    Now the HLR has had black editors before but Obama was the first black President of that organization. From Cannonfire:

    How did he become President of the Harvard Law Review? Via a “writing contest,” or so we are told, although Obama refuses to allow us a glance at the winning opus. He never wrote anything for publication during his Harvard period, although any truly ambitious law student would have done so. Obama defenders have argued that other Presidents also had a phobia for writing, but this is not true.

    And how did this little-known, utterly unpublished “author” score a massive advance for the autobiographical Dreams From My Father? Nothing about the project indicated high sales — in fact, Obama had only a hazy idea of what he wanted to write about, even after he cashed the check for his advance. Most tyro authors are very lucky to sell 5000 copies of a first book, and the writer gets maybe a buck a copy. Obama received enough money to maintain an office, to keep his family in comfort, and to finance a trip to Bali. And even under those luxurious circumstances, he missed the deadline by a wide mark.

    Has any other President of the Harvard Law Review been offered a book deal for his memoirs before he even passed the bar? Job offers at prestigious law firms, sure, but book deals with big cash advances? That’s not all he got, he also got a sinecure as a lecturer at University of Chicago Law School. That’s pretty good for a green-as-grass attorney who wasn’t even practicing law yet.

    Obama did not actually begin practicing law until 1993, but by 1994 he was on the board of directors of the Woods Fund of Chicago and The Joyce Foundation, which was rarefied air when you consider the credentials of his fellow board members. In 1995 he was appointed as the as founding president and chairman of the board of directors of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. Those kind of appointments don’t usually go to a lawyer who hasn’t even made partner yet.

    In 1996 (while still an associate attorney) Obama got himself elected to the Illinois State Senate by successfully challenging the nominating petitions of all the other candidates. He then proceeded to earn a certificate of attendance by voting “Present” on every bill that was even remotely controversial. During his final term he managed to grab the credit for legislation other people had done the hard work on.

    In 2004 Obama got elected to the U.S. Senate when his main competition in the primary and general elections were conveniently forced to drop out because of scandals. After being sworn in as the junior Senator from Illinois, he immediately began running for President while writing his second memoir.

    Obama is Unaccomplished and Inexperienced

    * Zero executive experience, zero military experience
    * No major Federal legislative accomplishments
    * Ran for President after only one year in office as U.S. Senator
    * Was wrong about Iraq ‘surge’ strategy; France’s President calls Obama’s Iran policy “naïve”; idea to sit with foreign dictators without preconditions is dangerous

    Obama has Extreme Liberal Record and Positions

    * National Journal rated Obama the most liberal U.S. Senator in 2007
    * Anti-taxpayer big spender: Americans for Tax Reform – 0% rating, Citizens Against Government Waste – 13%
    * Pro-higher taxes: Voted 94 times in 4 short years for higher taxes. Obama in the past year has proposed higher payroll taxes, higher income taxes, and raising capital gains taxes.
    * Supports pork and earmarks for special interests: Steered $1 billion in earmarks to Illinois; supports Federal funding for ACORN.
    * Big spender: Proposes $800 billion in new spending for next 4 years
    * Open borders, pro-amnesty: Federation for American Immigration Reform – 0% Support US Border Patrol – 8%
    * Opposes 2nd A gun rights: NRA “F” rating, supported DC gun ban, Gun Owners of America – 0%
    * Weak on law and order: Voted in IL against death penalty for gangland murderers.
    * Pro-abortion extremist: Voted against Born-alive Infant Protection Act (to stop infanticide); Supports taxpayer-funded abortions and voted against partial-birth abortion bans; NARAL 100% rating.
    * Voted against Domestic Drilling offshore and in ANWR.
    * Wants to appoint liberal activist Judges to legislate liberal social policy from the bench. Liberal ratings: ACLU – 83%, NEA – 100%.

    Obama’s radical, extremist and corrupt associations

    * Obama called Rev Jeremiah Wright, of Trinity UCC, a Black Liberation Theology church, his mentor and attended Trinity UCC for 20 years.
    * Obama spent $100 million with radical William Ayers on failed radical education ideas and sat with him on boards of leftwing foundations
    * Obama worked with ACORN to sue banks to relax lending, a factor in initiating subprime lending that led to the current housing crisis
    * Obama got a sweetheart deal on his Chicago home with help from convicted influence peddler Tony Rezko. Rezko gave Obama $250,000 in contributions and got millions in Government grants that Obama helped obtain for him.

I campaigned and made phone calls for Barack for 14 months and to everyone who thinks this is a big mistake, get ready for a rude awakening.

There are some health care issues in our country, but trying to make a ‘free health care’ system is not the answer, it would create a large additional burden on everyone and only result in a health care system much worse than we already have.

    ok to all that say republicans are “crybabies” i didnt vote for obama but he will be our president and i am a patriot and will support him. This will be an interesting test presidency being that he has only held office for less than 4 years which under qualifies him for president. if he does well then we will know that he had a good idea of how things work but if he messes up big time then we will know next time not to elect a rookie. if the american people have made a mistake and in 4 years they make the same mistake the comment before about america turning into a place like in the movie idiocracy will most definatly come to pass. i hope this all turns out well and if not i hope we learn our lesson cause if it happens again then the citizens of this nation will find out how fast a weak nation can become a socialist state or a communist nation. good luck obama i hope ya do well but if not god help us….. thank you

    You are absolutely right. McCain/Palin’s campaign was completely aimed at the still VERY MANY ignorant closet bigot Whites and extremely gullible Americans (of all races) that make up a lot of this country. Those people believe anything they’re told and the idiots actually believed Obama is this unpatriotic arab(lmao) antisemetist that is going to steal every American’s money. These people are braindead and thank goodness that they were clearly outnumbered by people with common sense and a pulse of where this country needs to go.

    TO EVERYONE MAKING COMMENTS THAT WE (THOSE WHO KNOW THE SYSTEM IS $@$$#%) ARE NOT NUT JOBS. I find it funny that the people screaming the govt. is corrupt,, racism in govt,,suppressing the people,,this illegal war to rape countries of their oil etc. all of a sudden call us conspiracy nut.. You guys cut and paste your own beliefs when convenient and now obama was “elected” The system works and we are crazy..
    I say this to you..I would say the same thing regardless of who “won”.. The fact that such a huge amount of people in this country turned out to vote who never have done so before proves we want change but it doesn’t matter we wont get it. My god people please wake up ..so keep yelling and screaming and telling yourself that obama is different.. Have you all pulled the blinders so tight that you honestly believe that in the hundreds of years in this country that all of a sudden we have an honest President elect to save us??
    I am waiting for the day it happens but I have a gut feeling that 1-2 years into his term his approval rating will be the lowest in years. Why, you ask? Where should I start? How about the fact the guy has no real experience.
    Do you think you could walk in to wal-mart tomorrow and be hired as C.E.O if the only experience you had was running a lemonade stand when you were 8.

    as an american, i understand that people are number 1, excited that bush will no longer be running the country and number 2, that this is a historical because of obama is an african-american (well, bi-racial that is).

    other than that, i am not thrilled as an american, and i didn’t vote because i didn’t like either candidate so my vote wouldn’t have meant anything.

    obama can talk a good game, but talk is cheap. i’ll be jumping up and down when i see him fulfill these promises.

    he ran a good campaign. but he doesn’t have a lot of experience in the political arena. this man isn’t jesus but damn sure seems to be more popular then jesus. he has a very hard road ahead of him.

    i hope he can make some changes here in america, but it’s easy for him to say he’ll make those same changes outside of america. that’s an impossible task for him.

    as for some of his promises, like number 1 he wants to cut taxes on the poor and raise taxes on the rich. well to me, that just sets a bad example. i believe if you pay your dues to this country, you work hard, put yourself through college and sustain a wonderful career for you and your family than why in the hell should you be punished for that? work hard so you can hand over your money and put more people on welfare who are too lazy to work. screw that.

    and his promise to bring the troops home is not setting a good example to these crazy muslim extremist. our damn army can’t scare these bastards off, do you honestly think words are going to?

    by the way, to call him a black man or an african-american, wouldn’t that be racist? he’s bi racial. but i see him as a human being. i’ve never heard anybody call him a white man. i guess the other white half doesn’t exist? people want to say prejudice and racism doesn’t exist in america like it used to, bologna! if a REAL black man ran for president and is elected, and i’m talking WESLEY SNIPES BLACK, real black like FLAVA FLAV BLACK, then that’s the day that racism does not exist.
