Posted on 11/06/2008 5:55:13 AM PST by RobinMasters
In this thread (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2126850/posts?page=13) some people shared their experiences about what they saw after the Election.
Carley said : "You could see shock and awe on the faces of most people yesterday. The commuter train in NJ was filled with silent people, black and white, wondering just what they hell they had done.
The trip was eerily silent when its usually filled with people chatting away."
or jnygrl : "My husband takes NJ Transit. He said his train was silent yesterday until it stopped at Newark."
Please, feel free to share what you've experienced around you. It would be useful for some FReepers or others.
Neither my wife or I can find people willing to admit they voted for Obama.
Who the heck voted him in besides Blacks, Hispanics, and College kids yet to see their first paycheck.
A lot of stupid, white, babyboomer ex-hippies.
Kids kids kids- elementary to teenage
cheering and high fiving each other Obama Obama Obama
the schools (public and Catholic) did well in turning the little jedi to the dark side
(The only noises I hear on my commuter train are the occasional little kid and Cubs fans--in season).
“just what the heck they had done”?
You’ve elected a Marxist. You’ve authorized infanticide as national policy. You’ve instituted thuggery to replace free speech.
I hearing a lot of Obama supporters talking about “working with Republicans”. It’s almost as if they are afraid to lead. They have been sniping from the sidelines so long, they are afraid to get into the game for fear they will be criticized.
“Neither my wife or I can find people willing to admit they voted for Obama.”
I don’t want to associate with anyone that voted for Obama.
I have noticed that too. Here in California, we are in the Belly of the Beast. I know who the conservatives are where I work, in orchestra, etc. And I know we are outnumbered. But NO ONE was exulting in the election yesterday at either place. NO ONE mentioned it, except those few of us who are in mourning. It was almost eerily quiet.
Rahm Emmanuel as chief of staff is not going to be looking to work with republicans. a meaner, more vindictive, partisan you will not find.
Ummmm.. this may sound pathetic but I was soo devastated by the outcome that I actually became physically ill. I got a headache,palpitations, and felt like I had a monkey tearin’ up a straw hat in my stomach( I know TMI).
I decided to spare my children from having to hear about how great the Obama victory was, and I kept them home from their government school the next day.
Basically my husband, and kids and I just sat up on Election night and held a WAKE for capitalism and our country.
Watched the sun come up and sipped a cup of coffee.
I am one of Gods children and he will take care of me and my house. If the worlds woes fall on our nation so be it. The lovers of evil will get their just rewards!
In my ofc in DC, all of those afflicted with white guilt were positively giddy with glee yesterday at my staff meeting. it was pretty insufferable.
My 9 socialist southern in laws voted for him. One even worked for the campaign.
I told my conservative husband that if he wants to go see them, he’ll have to go alone. I’m done.
I’m ashamed to have the same last name as they do. I’m so angry.
I had to fly across country yesterday for business, and with all the glum faces, you would have thought Obama lost.
I thought it was truly weird.
I heard a few of those college jackasses do their Obama cheer.They might as well of said “Heil Hitler”. In fact their whole campaign is close to an exact mirror of that other little Socialist rise to power.
At my work, a hotbed of libs, no one talked about it, but Lord knows I was seething at them, waiting for one to start bragging about it.
The faces in Tennessee are pretty glum. I haven’t heard alot of laughter. I think hope (pretty ironic given their campaign theme) is fleeting for those hoping to get out of a bad situation already in progress. Those who were hiring, are not now because of fear of higher taxes and a need to lay off later, which raises unemployment benefits.
But no matter what, it will never ever be Obama’s fault. You can bet that.
I’m also in D.C. (I can see the Capitol from my window). A few smiles on Metro the morning after, but no chatter — happy or otherwise. I expected my office to be bursting with noise about it...I saw only two people who were excited...silence, otherwise. I’ve never seen a day-after-the-election as quiet as this one.
