Many of us suspected it -- it is almost a repeat of 1996.

Question now is: Will McCain get at least as many EV's as Dole's 159?

2006 didn't wake up the GOP. Maybe this will.

candidate Barack Obama is the "hope of the entire world."

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.

Me too. How many trillions of welfare dollars down the rat hole, and they just voted to take more, do less, and who knows what else. And they have also told us how much they hate whites.

Liberals and Marxists have always irked me.

After 9/11/01, Muslims moved higher on my radar.

After 11/4/08, another group has joined them.

We are truly in a war of ideals.

Maybe it’s time for republicans to pull their money out of the markets and let the dems wallow in their own feces. As long as we have the money, we still have power.
Pull it out of the market and stuff it under a mattress!! Lets start NOW!!

I agree with everything except waiting for 4 years to change things. We start working for 2010 NOW. Anyone want to take bets on how long it takes Obama to lower/lose the tax cut? My prediction is March 10, the Ides of March.

It will be at least 2 years before we can do a durn thing.

Until then we will never hear the word “veto”

I was basically a young idealistic socialist when I voted for Carter. I was also an idiot. Carter disabused me of any socialist or liberal tendencies. I have never voted for a Democrat since Carter.

The real issue in the campaign is not the economy, it was the sanctity of life. I fear that a nation that does not respect the life of the unborn, will not respect the life of the born.

Obama may make history tonight. But let us not forget that Hitler made history too. History does not often produce happy memories.

and we have a lot of work to do for the conservative party.

What Conservative party? The two parties that even try to act like the party of conservatives (Libertarian and Constitution Parties) are both dope-smoking surrender-monkeys. The Republican Party flushed the Conservatives down the toilet. Of course, this would partially explain the far LOWER Republican turnout in Ohio.

So now we get to go through at least 4 years of Ahab and Jezebel-style rulers in this country.

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.

I cannot disagree with a word of what you have said. Keep the faith, brother. We will return to fight another day.

It's the fault of vast number of communist infiltrators and big money such as Soros and probably oil sheeks. We didn't want to be called tin-foil hatters. No, there is no such thing as a conspiracy and since we were sure it could never happen here they did it right under our noses. This is/was a conspiracy and we always wanted to believe it couldn't happen here. I believe him and his backing long ago declared war on America. They were smart enough to fight it from within. They are actually enemy combatants. I hope we have learned our lessen. The question becomes where do we go from here? We had better get on our knees and pray and ask God for direction. Remember if he is not a citizen, he is illegal if/or when he wins. I am sure that he has done every dirty illegal trick in the book. This is as serious as anything we could ever imagine in our life times.

1 - it isn't over until the counting is done. Many conservative counties in Ohio haven't even reported yet. Though admittedly, the majority of the big blue cities have.

2 - If Obama pulls this off, I have a scorched earth policy ready. I would hope that y'all do also. If the pirates want to steal the ship, sink it.

I do believe in having tests before one can vote and they cnanot be on the dole unless they are disabled or retired, although they still have to pass the test. I they have a disability like being blind or deaf, assistance will be provided to get past that or the test will be given in an alternate fashion for them. I remember having my IQ tested as a kid, I got 132 on the test system given to me. 132 and up is genius level, I just made it. Still, I think we need to have some cutoff point or criteria where the people need to know basic math, history, the English language and comprehension in such a test.

CNN is basically saying it is over.

Even if McCain picks up all of the remaining ‘iffy’ states, he can’t get enough Electoral Votes to win.

McCain, even if he picks up most of the ‘iffy’ states, would have to have a couple of major upsets (Washington state or Oregon or California) to win.

ya know.
Sitting here in my drunken stupor, I was just thinking that exact same thing.

And I was thinking the benefit vs. cost.

Sure - we would miss out on the interest - but the tax will also increase, and then there is the intangible LESSON we could teach the rest of the freakin idiotic moronic imbecile obots.

Turn the carriers into the wind...launch all planes for the 2nd Conservative Revolution in 2012

I agree, but it will not be easy. This country hasn't seen true conservative leadership for a long time, at least since Newt. Who can lead the GOP back to conservative principles? There are people out there that can do it, such as Gov. Palin, Rep. Mike Pence. We need someone who can communicate the conservative message and educate the American people about what we believe. I know it sounds like a cliche, but this is not a battle about the White House or congressional seats, this is a battle for the heart and soul of our country. We will not win by getting in peoples faces, but by presenting a positive vision for the future of America. This election is not a vote against conservatism, it is a vote against the status quo. America needs to know that conservatism represents change too. Change to a government that stays out of you way and allows you succeed on your own terms, a government that doesn't punish hard work, but rewards it and let's you keep the fruits of your labor. Right now, the old school leadership of the Republican Party is totally ineffective. It needs to be replaced with new leadeship that doesn't spout conservative principles every four years, but has them as their guiding principles. I apologize for the long winded post, but it sure made me feel better.

They are using exit polls to make these calls for goodness sakes. Exit polls have not proven to be accurate in the past and the whole election wreck of 2000 happened because of this crap. All we are seeing now is the media’s opinion of who is winning. I say let’s wait until actual votes are counted.

No, the coward Republican legacy keeps giving. I knew this was over at the convention when Bush was virtually and unashamedly snubbed by McCain and the party. You can not eat your own and that is precisely what he and the Lindsey Graham group of Republicans did, then the rest of them fell in line right behind them. They were covering their own asses to keep their seats, and guess what? They lost any way, they should have united and defended Bush a long, long time ago, instead they scattered.

There aren’t enough Blacks in the U.S. to elect Obama or anyone else President. If Obama wins it will take the vote of a lot of whites and other races to do it. Blacks are only about 14% of the population.
