Yes We Did

It's an incredible moment in time and I'm proud to be an American.

Until you realize that there was already an assassination plot on Obama by some asshat f*cksh*t white supremacist group.

Do something about the south, would you?

Also, do something about those black people who call you racist if you didn't vote for Obama. Perhaps they should realize that any reasoning of colour, race, religion and creed - positive or negative - is racism. When it's the man's colour and not JUST the man, you're a racist.

As far as being proud, yea, in my opinion he's a way better choice than McCain and especially Palin. Unfortunately, he's left cleaning up the 8 year mess by Dubya. Let's see if he leans too far left cleaning up the mess before we get all proud. Just a thought.

Yea, aren't I a ray of sunshine. I apologize.

Mike said...

As an addendum, yes I am proud that America has elected a black president.

I guess that makes me racist according to my definition above.

Perhaps now we can all move on and eliminate any prejudgments based on race, religion, colour, and creed, as this hurdle was finally cleared.

I think Mike's been eating my pessimism candy! *giggle*

It's going to be an interesting four years, that's for sure.

Reb said...

You should be proud! Voters came out in record numbers and you elected the correct man to get you all out of the mess the last one put you in.

From this side of the border, things are looking good down there.

I have had so many emotions, but I have to say, I BLUBBERED last night when I first saw the announcement.

At this time, I am filled with HOPE. There is a lot of work to do, and I am fearful that people's "quick remedy" expectations are too high for the massive mess that this new administration has to deal with, but I am HOPEFUL. And I haven't felt that way in quite some time about our country.

That, and it is apparent how much he loves his partner. THAT is something awesome to see in a President too, eh?

He looks so YOUNG in that photograph! With youthfulness comes hope, and I've noted today that most of the world is excited about this CHANGE.

Now if Congress would only learn to WORK!!

And as much as he reminds me of JFK, I reallyreallyreallyreally want the similarities to stop now. I don't like the rest of Jack's story. (Since I don't want to give the power of words to it, I'll reference back up to Mike at the top of the comments.)

I also feel very proud. Proud of the turn out. Proud of the outcome. Proud of McCain's speech last eve. Proud of Obama's. Proud that the US has elected the first minority president. I haven't felt 'proud' of this country in a VERY long time. The closest thing I can relate it to is the way we as Americans felt the first few months after 9/11. We came together as a people then and we will now. Truly amazing. I feel great. See ya tonight.

YAHOO!!!! Now let's all move on and visit my blog and look at the vlog I posted of my beagle attacking the UPS truck.

Well, I don't agree with the outcome of the election, but I am ALWAYS proud to be an American. I was proud yesterday and I will be proud for the next 4 years.

I too am proud to be an AMERICAN!!!
I am happy about what took place on this historic day in all of our lives!!!

Gosh I am really excited!

Jay said...

I'm very happy about the outcome of the election. And I'm very hopeful for the next four years. Not that I think everything is going to be all sunshine, rainbows and lollipops, but that there is at least a chance that we can make progress on some important issues. Hopefully without going too far.

Okay, so I'm cautiously optimistic.

Just say - Yes We Did!

Darla said...

LOVE your labels on this one. ;)

Real Live Lesbian said...

I am proud to be an American, too!

I'm also proud to be from the South, so when Mike says stuff like:

"Do something about the south, would you?"

I find it insulting. And I'm rarely insulted.

No matter how you stereotype people, you always end up looking like an uneducated ass when you do so.

Mike said...

Sorry Real Live Lesbian.

Actually, I'm not.

I know where those KKK dipshits come from, and it ain't manhatten.

So how about:

Do something about those KKK dipshits in the south.

About you being insulted? Well, too bad for you, isn't it ;)

Real Live Lesbian said...

Ok Mike, glad you're not! And you'd best be worried about dipshits all over the world threatening our president.

That's really what scares me most. What will happen to our country if someone does that. It is more frightening than anything I can think of.

tt said...

Hummmmm.I've always been proud to be an American. Even when we've had dipshits in the White's still the best place on earth. However...I am a bit more optomistic with Obama at the helm. What a presence he is to the world...not just to the world. THAT is the accomplishment I think. Perhaps we won't be thought of as ....asshats?
How'd your Halloween turn out? Fabulous I'm sure!
Have a sunny weekend gal!

Real Live Lesbian said...

Yeah, I stopped back by to find out about your Halloween, too! So, how'd it go? Inquiring minds...
