If true than that’s it. Break out the little red books and report to the NBP party headquarters for reeducation in the morning. God save us, because we sure aren’t capable of saving ourselves.

Same here.

Glad I’m not in the Army anymore. I just couldn’t stomach fighting for a country that elects a terrorist sympathizing marxist as president. This is disgusting and shameful.

Breaking out the xanax...enough is enough. The polls were right...what can we say...this party is in complete disarray and we need to move southern primaries up to add in with the blue state primaries.

Don’t know. But Michigan seems to be in play and so does Wisconsin.

The Dems in Gary, IN, play election fraud largely and loosely. They can manufacture the phantom votes to bring it home for Obama.

Game over. This wasn’t an election, it was an IQ test for the U.S.; and sadly we just failed. Here’s what happens when you dumb down America and media outlets shift from being news reporters to Democratic activists. This Socialist/Marxist is going to do so much damage in the next 4 years to this country. I’m never amazed by the stupidity of the masses.

Do not be ashamed. We have good people who voted like us, and we have a lot of work to do for the conservative party.

Media ran this campaign for Obama so that is why he has won.

We lived through the Clintons, we will live through Obama.

It was over when we nominated McCain.

The Republican party is dead.

Call for a new party, a real CONSERVATIVE party NOW.

Can we, finally abandon this sinking ship?

Well, two things that are weak issues but serve as silver linings:

1) With power comes responsibility. Any Bush policy that the Dems don’t like can now be reversed. So they now have to stop whining and go ahead and vote.

2) The GOP now better go back and figure out what they stand for. Here are some things they shouldn’t stand for: a) Kowtowing to K Street lobbyists (especially with special favors to connected corporations as opposed to general tax rate reductions). b) jacking up domestic spending. c) earmarks. d) liberalizing immigration.

I don’t understand how the vote can be called with only 9% of the returns in.

Be strong, have faith. Even if BO wins, we Freepers are NOT crybaby democrats sitting on the couch waiting for a Messiah to pay our mortgages, put gas in our tanks, etc. We’ll all just have to work harder, squirrel our money away from the Greedy Hand, and BE HAPPY. If we lose tonight, we’ll have another chance in four years.

What we DON’T need to do is sound like a bunch of whiney lib demo-victims. We’re better than that! God bless America!

If Obama won Ohio and PA then it is OVER. I am not really surprised...the average American is a moron- more interested in American Idol and Dancing With the Stars than what is going on in politics and real issues. Sadly we will ALL pay for their mistake. Goodnight America...nice knowing ya!

There won’t be investigations—the Demons are in charge of everything.

I didn’t want to believe our fellow Americans could be so STUPID, but unfortunately, they are...and more! The freebies and giveaways attracted the idiots. I will take no pleasure in saying “I told you so” to anyone who voted for Zero.

We need to get back to basics. We need to rebalance the media, clean out waste, fraud and corruption. It may need to start at the grass roots. I simply don’t know where to begin right now....

It will be a rocky, rocky ride. Best of luck to everyone!

You got that right. Of course this all started with Clinton's motor voter law and went down hill from there. Anyone with a pulse (or not) can vote.

Correct. This is where we throw out all of the party heads and clean out our own backyard. Move the freaking primaries UP from the southern states..we have blue state RINO’s picking our nominees.

What a joke. I never bought into the McCain hype...the polls ALWAYS showed Obama up. Yes, there is bias but we need to get real. Indoctrination of our schools is at critical mass. We have to rescue our kids first and build from the ground up.

News report just in from Ohio - the lowest Republican voter turnout ever (as a percent of registered voters). In other words - Republicans in Ohio chose to LET Obama win the state.

Saxby, McConnell and Wicker look safe, that means a filibuster in the senate. We should be able to stop the really radical stuff.

And then dig in and hope the GOP has learned it’s lesson about moderate bipartisanship.

It’s amazing - I just went to the OH Sec. of State’s site and it has the following:

McCain, John (R) 49.56% 290,172
Obama, Barack (D) 48.84% 285,951

Statewide Precincts Reporting: 13.57%

I’m just ashamed of the Blacks in America, not my country. When that number of people will just carte blanche vote for an evil man because he is the same skin color as them, that speaks volumes to ME.

I shouldn't think this way, but it seems like race does matter as you pointed out. I cannot condemn anyone on the other side voting for McCain because he's White. I know my father, he's still a George Wallace supporter, I think he voted for McCain. I know in the 1968 election, E.G. Marshall, said basically that we all have the right to vote our prejudices, right or wrong. I'm glad there are Blacks here on FR who do "get it" and I'm not trying to paint them with the wide brush we are using here, but wen I go out in the hinterlands and see things happening, I'm afraid the stereotypes and prejudices do have a lot of truth behind them. It's doesn't affect the Blacks only but the young as well. I'm having bad thoughts, I'm trying to suppress tem but seeing the gimmee crowd as well as the idea of making history as the first Black President over substance and the war or terror makes me ill. I'm praying for God to comfort me, right now, even that is a tall order, I don't doubt His powers but I'm so jaded and cynical now. I think if this has an effect on level headed me, I'm afraid this will set race relations back decades because the backlash will blind people. We need the backlash but we must keep our focus on the target, Barak the Communist, not the race, but some will not be that way. I am sad that I am writing this but I have to be honest. I can't ignore what I see.
