Wednesday, November 5, 2008

Congratulations to "President-Elect Barack Obama", & his family!.......As you know I was supporting the McCain/Palin ticket.....but now the election is over.... America has spoken... & come January 2009....Obama & his lovely family will be our "first family".....Although I have differences politically with Mr. Obama, I am extremely "proud" of our country for not seeing color as an issue in this presidential race!......Barack Obama is a very intelligent, passionate & charismatic man.... & soon will be our next"President of the United States of America". I will continue to question this new administrations ideas & policy, but at the same time will respect & support "President-Elect Obama"!

Thank you! Also as a McCain supporter talking, I'm so thankful that people are taking the right persepctive on this. We need to RESPECT our president!!

If everyone had your positive attitude our country would be all the more amazing. I think the most important thing we have learned in the past months is that we need to reach across party lines and do what is best for our country. Well said.

Yes, it is indeed our duty as citizens to rally round, and support our leaders.

God bless America.

I'm with you too, although I am on the Obama diet today...feeling a little sick to my stomach about the results. As I would have hoped with John McCain, had he won, I will hope he works with both sides, and not just the Dems. And, I hope he provides whatever "CHANGE" it is his voters think they need. So, thanks for posting...I just didn't have it in me.

I voted for Obama, but I cried when McCain gave his speech and felt so proud of how he handled everything. I felt a whole new faith in America last night after hearing both of their speeches. They were very gracious and so are you!!

Have a fantastic day!

You are one of the reasons why I love my "Blogging Buddies". I voted and support Barack Obama, however I would have felt the same as you had McCain won.

I was a McCain supporter but I must admit I am terribly disappointed in America's decision. But I am glad that they did see beyond color. God Bless America!

I know that McCain gave a good speach when he lost. On the other hand the reason why it sounded so good because democrats like to whine when they loose. See 2000 election. See Hillory Clinton!!!

I agree with you! Well said! We really have to work together as an American and not so much a party now.

Jenny S November 5, 2008 at 11:38 AM  

Thank you! I am an Obama suporter but hopefully more people will have your great attitude of "Let's move forward positively"

Andrea @ Big Creek Cottage November 5, 2008 at 12:15 PM  

What a great post. I support Obama and am so glad to see your post. We are one America.....I hope folks take your lead and come together.

I am with you, Heidi, and I urge everyone to continue the prayer for our country that has already begun around our church communities. Our country needs to unite and be of one accord. Pray for God to heal our broken, divided land with this new beginning. With God, all things are possible.

Did all of America really see past color? I suspect many votes were cast merely because Obama is black. And if you take away all those votes, would he have won? Maybe. Maybe not. And ask those same people who voted for Obama because he was black how they feel about certain aspects of his proposed polices, and I would bet that many of them (not all) can't tell you one thing about one policy.

I sit here listening to a Christian talk radio station as I type this, and the DJ just referred to a Martin Luther King quote and commented, "Yesterday an election was decided on the color of a man's skin and not the content of his character." It's a call-in radio show and he has talked to these very people in the past. I suspect many voters did give Obama's character some thought but many did not. Yes, I was a McCain/Palin supporter and not because I didn't want to vote for a black President but because I agreed more with McCain's plans for the future. I can think of many black men for whom I would vote--Colin Powell for one--but that's neither here nor there now. Of course, I wish Obama and his beautiful family well in the White House but most of all GOD BLESS AMERICA!

I am with you, I would have written the same thing if McCain had won. Interesting that the only negatives on here are from Anonymous.

I'm always gone on Wednesdays, but I came here as soon as I could to see what you would write. I knew there would be something, and I knew it would be good. I fear that had things gone the other way, not everyone would have been as gracious as you. I hope that we can all move forward with respect, and yes, questioning.

Charlene November 5, 2008 at 4:25 PM  

I too am heart sick about the out come of this election. But,I feel as you feel, we must ALL pray & do ALL we can for this nation. We were built as a UNITED STATES of AMERICA & UNITED is how we must function to remain so. SO, let's all roll up our sleeves, do what we can & hope President Elect Obama can come through with his promises for a Change we can ALL afford. We must remember FREEDOM ISN'T FREE. Many men & women have died to give us this right. Keep them in your thoughts & prayers.

BECKY November 5, 2008 at 5:13 PM  

Wow, very well said, and I agree wholeheartedly!! I will continue to pray for our country and it's leaders.

I do feel sad that we are still not color blind. We are all happy and celebrating this "historic Moment" when the world sees that the US elects the president by his color. Blacks voted 96% for Obama, that is racism at its full.
We didn’t vote for the better men, for the men with most credentials, for the men that has proved himself through his career and his actions. But we voted to prove that we are color blind which only proves the opposite. If both candidates would have been green McCain would have won.

Tracy November 6, 2008 at 9:59 AM  

A very nice post, Heidi! We must all be positive and hope, no matter our opinions or differences. I am a big Obama supporter, and am delighted in his victory. His speech was truly inspiring. His hope gives people hope, and I like that. McCain gave a very gracious speech as well, it was very good. I hope now, finally, parties will cross lines and come together for greater good of the country. It is a relief the election is over. The hard work begins now. In the meantime, soup and cozy quilts are just the comfort needed! :o) Happy Day, Heidi ((HUGS))

Anne Fannie November 6, 2008 at 11:38 PM  

Hi Heidi, I agree with you on moving forward positively. I too was a McCain supporter. I am still a little uneasy about Obama because I don't think the job as President is a learn as you go job, but, I support what the majority of the people chose and we must all pray for Obama that he can turn our country around.

ShabbyInTheCity November 10, 2008 at 9:02 AM  

Same here...while I am not 'for' Obama...or pro-choice...I am happy for the race thing and feel it is a vote of confidence for many people.
