Congratulations President ObamaNovember 5th, 2008 at 7:55 am by Cranky
Voting corpses notwithstanding, you won by a big enough margin to have been elected fairly. The office of the Presidency is to be respected regardless of who holds it.
We are deeply disappointed and somewhat apprehensive about the kind of administration you will bring and laws your legislature will pass. It is my hope that your campaign promises made from the center will guide you rather than your mentors and past record representing the South side of Chicago.
On the bright side, at last France, Spain and Belgium will admire us once again. As they gaze at us through the smoke of their burning cars set alight by masses of unemployed youths, they will see that we are embracing a better path – theirs. Regardless of their approval, we do know that Americans are a decent people and have elected a man of African descent less than 150 years after slavery was abolished.
I will work diligently to see conservatives regain power, but for the next four years, it’s your show, President Obama.
