The disturbing part is that McCain got 45%, in other words and to generalize a bit, most of these 45% are slightly racist at the very least, dont really care about the economy, and think that guns and abortion are the main issues facing the US.

Oh, and forgot to mention Obama is a Communist !

The worst bit was one online Republican who said Obama had arranged his grandmom to die the day before the election to garner sympathy............

You are projecting your feeling of McCain on those 45%. Obviously they don't see it that way. What makes you think McCain doesn't care about economy? Guns and abortions? racist? Aren't you neutral.

I have seen the last debate and to be honest, neither McCain nor Obama had a satisfactory answer for fixing the economy. Both of them said something in the line of rescuing the homeowners by buying up bad loans and keep everything in their power to maintain house values. And both of them are dead wrong on this. House prices are inflated as it is. THey need to be corrected more. We don't try to maintain this ridiculously overpriced housing....

But I am sure, people don't wanna hear that from their presidential candidates obviously

Either way, voting/supporting McCain /= BAD person, maybe a bad choice by the criteria you set for your ideal candidate

More than question of "race", it was the triumph of brilliance over mediocrity. Congratulations to America for setting a new course.

'Big B' (Make anything out of B) is leaving. Whoever comes is ok. Specially if that's a democrat it's even better.

Obama will basically struggle to deliver as much is expected of him. He will finish his tenure clearing the mess. It's going to be a laborious job & who else other than a black man is more suitable for the job?

We have allowed whites for 200 years & other Asian Muslims for over 500 years & Hindus and Budhists for 1000s of years prior to that. Women ruling the country etc, We had it all. Our rullers cycle is over.

Let America come at per with us, let them copy us and have their first Muslim or woman president.

If we have to copy USA, there are many other areas we need to replicate instead of such things. Lets have the liberty & wealth like USA first.

I'm not sure how Fox news is spinning the race factor, but people need to stop putting race down the list of reasons why BHO won. Just look at CNN's exit poll stats:



If anything, this maybe telling us that racial bias may still be a significant factor in the US.

If one assumes that the latino+asian+other votes are most likely the non-racially influenced ones (obviously not 100% correct), roughly 66% voted for the black guy and 33% voted for the white guy. So if blacks and whites were voting without any racial bias, we would be seeing the same percentages. Instead, we see 43%-55% (O-M) for whites and 95%-4% (O-M) for blacks. So, all other things being equal (and they aren't), one could say perhaps 22% of whites and 29% of blacks had racial bias guiding their votes.

Digging up 2004 exit polls:



So, the African-American voting percentage went up 2% and Whites went down 3%, but 6% more African-Americans went for the democrat this time and 3% less whites went for the republican. You can perhaps explain this with "young white new voters" being racially unbiased, but I'd say there's probably a large percentage of racially biased older white first-time voters to counter that.

Of course, one way to explain the shift in percentages for African-Americans without putting it on racial bias is that they are probably one of the worst affected groups from this economic decline. I'd think this is the most likely explanation for shift in latino votes as well.

"Yes we can", "Yes we did" and all sorts of slogans are fine. Thanking McCain, and everyone is all fine but

not for once he thanked God in his speech. He said "God bless you" and "God bless America" at the end but he didn't thank the lord.

I can't get over this.

Obama is a closet atheist. Which is, of course, just fine by me...

I wanna know what the hell is going on with Alaska senate race. It's still "too close to call" with 99% precincts reporting and Ted Stevens, surprisingly, leading... if he wins, be prepared for Senator Sarah Palin!

well if by naming him obama or barack, he achieves 1/100th of anything close to what Barack did, then yes... but most likely he will become a cab driver. So might as well name him Akbar rather than barack.

Oh boy... this is what Fox news website looks like right now:



At first glimpse I thought they had actually had the balls to put up a picture of Obama and claim he's "A World of Trouble" (I read that first since it's in the largest font).

Clever!
