Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

It would be nice to see a new generation of African Americans who are able to think for themselves, instead of buying into the Democrat tripe and being DEPENDENT UPON THE DEMOCRAT PARTY for a few bones so that they go to the polls and vote Democrat every election cycle.

So is "the one" going to erradicate the violent crime and gangs in the black communities? He is the messiah, I hear. Oh, I know, he's going to ban guns and then leave the black community totally defenseless.

Where is he going to get all the cash to pay for all the handouts he promised? We're already in the hole because of his mortgage fiasco.

Sorry, but the civilian army thing isn't going to float.

It looks too much like Hitler's brown shirts.
So that's out as a government employment idea.

At least it better be.........

A little more than half the voters voted for Obama, the other 48% or so who didn't. So there is no "mandate".

And of course, there's always those who didn't vote at all...don't think you can steal thier paycheck and guns...that's all they need to awaken from their slumber.

Yeah right after he tasted his own foot thanks to Joe the plumber.His campaign made him drop out of the spot light.Before he destroyed what they created.And like I told KAY he's noty saying that he's the first bi-racial pres. HE'S SAYING HE'S THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT.He himself said in his book that he identified with his father and found solice in harboring hatred towards his mothers race.

Hussein Obama was going to win without a doubt. McCain was a loser ticket from the get go. I just didn't understand why the Repubs put such an obvious easy push over, up as our candidate. McCain was just creepy. I hated it everytime he was speaking - all that "my friends" crap. GOD HAS deserted the United States of America. We are going to be set up by Pelosi, Reid and Hussein Obama now and knocked down by the rest of the world. Wait for it. It's not long in coming:
- Surrender in Iraq. I am so sorry to all of our brave soldiers for their - now - meaningless effort.
- Obama will set up his "National Security Force" - translation -jackbooted thugs to force citizens into capitulation. Just like Hitler did in Nazi Germany.
- Obama and his ilk will attempt to disarm the citizenry just like Hitler did in Nazi Germany.
- Obama and his ilk will raise everyone's taxes - he all lied to you and you know it.
- Welfare slums will pop up everywhere. So sad, but that is what socialism breeds.
- 30% unemployment just like in every other socialist country.

So freakin' sad!

Yep.
People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.
You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.
They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.
This comment couldn't have sounded more rediculous or more paranoid. Not everyone who voted for Obama simply wanted a black president. Many didn't want an old POW for president, and many wanted the Democratic party back into the swing of things. I don't care if Obama was green, because I still would've voted for him just like I voted for Kerry.

Yeah, why should I have to work even harder to pay some ungrateful, lazy person living off welfare to keep doing so? It's creating a worse state of affairs here. Because I'm successful, I have to give my money away? Oh, and by the way, once I get close to my 250k or 150k earning mark, whatever HE decideds, I'll close my business and fire my employees.

If I was wrong okay however I thought youwere speaking in ref to his campaign not his book so I do apologize. However for my experience whenever anyoneis of mix race and one parent is lack..society has labled them as black. I have friends and family who are of mix race and some pick one or the other or both but it is there option to do so.

You're mixing apples and oranges. One can be black and not be African-American. Black refers to an entire race it has nothing to do with your citizenship. Self-identification is a decision made by the individual.

Oh so Black identification is a mixed African American from Harvard Law School? Isnt that identification laughed at in the community for being too white. Why is it ok now that an Educated Black man is 95% widely embraced when your leaders have been preaching Education since before segregation . I'm just trying to figure out whats in it for the "hip hop ebonic speaking young black man." I'm not being ignorant . I really want to know how he relates to the Harvard Law review? Tell me how having a Black President makes that kid stop saying "axe" instead of "ask." It doesn't. That black kid is offensive to a lot of people, there in lies your circle of racism that will continue.

My hope is that a 5 year old black kid watches Obama and thinks Education is where its at, being a Father is where it's at, and being true to his Black woman is where it's at.

These things people have been saying for decades. However, when I say it it's racist. When Obama says it it's Gospel. See how silly you look to us sometimes.So go ahead and celebrate what we have been trying to get you guys(black people) to be like all this time. Its about time. See what happens when you don't stubbornly speak ebonics around white people, we back you 100%.

I'm look forward to a new Generation of Africans Americans looking up to Obama!!!!!

If you dont believe me. Run a video of Barack Obama speaking and then run a video of Allen Iverson speaking and you'll see what I mean.

Sidebar: I voted for Obama.

Funny how Democrats are always being criticized for some of the dumbest shit some of you people can come up with. Democrats are some of the most hard working people out there. They,for the most part, are the working class. Im Democrat, black,female, and I never ever in my life want to recieve a hand out. I never want to be on welfare, and that's why Im pursuing my nursing career instead of sitting around somewhere bare foot and pregnant. This is one of the many reasons I abstained from sex for all of 23 years untill I met the love of my life. I work hard for everything I have, and still am. Think twice before you want to criticize an entire political party. BTW have you ever seen Bush try and stop any of these crimes you speak of? If any former president ever tried stopping all this mess in the past then just maybe things would be better now...meaning before Obama even swears himself into office. After Bush, I don't think Republicans should be talking any shit for a while. They've got much explaining to do.

I hope you're not suggesting that black people by definition can not be educated because that is certainly what it sounds like you're saying.
As for "whats in it for the 'hip hop ebonic speaking young black man.'" you might want to ask one because only that person can answer your question. I nor anyone else can speak or take responsibility for an entire race.
When you say black people, who are you speaking of? I hope you mean to address your arguments towards a particular class of people (i.e., uneducated and willfully ignorant) not a racial group. No race has a monopoly on ignorance.
No you're missing the point. I don't have the time to articulate it in this forum. It's way to deep for an E mail.

Unfortunately, mostly true.

-When you are singled out to pay more taxes based on how much you make, what is the incentive to work hard and get into a career that pays well?

ANS: Obama has pledged to increase taxes on people that make more than 250K per year. Why? Should a doctor's money be spread to those that did not spend 8 years in med school? Why become a doctor? Why spend a load of money on med school only to have your salary taken from you when you complete it?

Socialism is the first step to communism. Soon, everyone will live where and how the government tells you. Of course, most lazy individuals would enjoy zero responsibility and will probably embrace the true oppression that follows.

Ok lets rephrase it. There was a segment of the Black population last night celebrating Obama's victory like wolves in sheeps clothing.

Celebrating an Educated Self Identified Black Man, while all your life making fun of "Obama types" seeking higher education and labeling them too white.

Are you still going to make fun of your buddy who refuses to be ignorant like you?

No I understand your point, but you are not articulating it clearly and it is open to vast misinterpretation because you speak in generalities as if we are all the same.

I largely agree with your point, but not the way you are stating it. Again, I think the point you are making is about class and education not race.

The 700 billion dollar bailout wasn't socialism?

Don't pretend the Repubs are looking out for the common man, because the only care about Wall Street. Those fat-cats will still get their 20 mil dollar christmas bonuses thanks to main street. But hey. Let's just play the blame game and call all Dems the new catch phrase. That way I will feel all warm and fuzzy at night.

"Moderate" Republicanism lost yesterday. Conservatism didn't. This is what moderation got us: 20% of "conservatives" voted for Obama. Reach across the aisle and get your hand smacked. Walk across the aisle and get your knee cracked. You "conservatives" bought into a bill of goods. Soon you'll have buyer's remorse...

People who make more already pay more taxes. It's amazing that people that post here just noticed we have a progressive tax code. We've had socialism since before any of us were born so I really don't think much will change.
