ITSSSSSS OFFICIAL!!!!! well its been “official”
I’m mad late on blogging about this historical event that has taken place. I can’t believe that I am around to witness the history that was made November 4, 2008 and the history that will continue to be made.
Barack Hussein Obama is now the new “President-Elect” of the United States of America!!!!!! Since I can’t wait until January 20th, I will say he is my President. It was so inspiring seeing so many people out in the streets rejoicing, doing the electric slide, doing everything when California gave Obama the electoral votes he needed to win the election. I noticed when the Obamas came out to address the crowd in Chicago, they looked official…like America’s first family. Not only that but, VP Elect Joe Biden’s family as well. Their families together is truly a symbol of their entire campaign so far: change, diversity, etc. Especially Michelle, she looked so FAB with her Narciso Rodriguez dress on!!! A true first lady indeed.
America’s First Family 🙂
And now I must address the haters….To all the people who keep saying the only reason he won is because black people voted for him, know your facts! It wasn’t just the “black vote,” matter of fact, more whites came out to vote and voted for Barack Obama than they did for Bill Clinton in both elections. Even though the black turnout vote was 95%, we still did not have enough votes as whites. So let it be known, it wasn’t a black thing… Everybody wanted this man to win, it was a LANDSLIDE VICTORY, I think I can safely say “everybody” :-). Secondly, all these Facebook groups popping up, asking for the impeachment of Obama, let me remind you who has been in office for EIGHT YEARS (8!!) and the current status of America right now. Since “Dubya” has been in office, the unemployment rate has SKYROCKETED, the value of the American dollar is like playdough in comparison to other international currencies, we are getting closer and closer to a recession and our relationships with other countries are f*ed up. Furthermore, you can add the government response to Hurricane Katrina, lying to Americans just to go to war, BUSHISMS, etc., etc. And you want to impeach a man who wants to bring equality and stability back to our country???
At the end of the day though, as he so eloquently stated in his acceptance speech, HE IS YOUR PRESIDENT!! ACCEPT IT!! January 20, 2009 only a few months away!!
