I have been pretty vocal about my lack of faith in both candidates this election. I ultimately made the decision to side with McCain, primarily over my fear of socialization of this country. With the election now over I want to congratulate Obama and his supporters on an extremely well run campaign. I had little doubt that Obama would be our next president, but I didn’t realize how decisive the vote would be.

Election Day 2008

My hope is that Obama leads this country forward in a fair and balanced way, understanding the needs and desires of all citizens. He has a tremendous opportunity to change this country, that change can be accomplished if he remains true to his word and governs as an American, not as a democrat. We need both parties on board working together to pull out of these difficult times.

I stand proud of our country and our new president. I look forward to the end of the war and economic prosperity.

    You said “fair and balanced.” Did Robin or Fox pay you to say that?

  • Ted Murphy says:

    Not FOX news style “fair and balanced”. Real fair and balanced.

    i admire your respect and new-found support for a candidate who you didn’t vote for.

    i have noticed that many McCain supporters are already bitter and unwilling to accept Obama’s win nor wait to give him a chance at running our country before they pass judgement. i think it’s sad and unfair. (also demonstrated by the booing crowd during McCain’s concession speech, which i thought was well-done, reverant and classy.)

    props for being a mature, respectful, and patriotic American! not that i would have expected less… 😉

    I thought McCain’s speech was awesome that night (so was Obama’s). That may have been McCain’s best speech of his entire campaign, it was the first time he looked relaxed.
