I was not going write about the election last night as I know that every other blog out there is doing it and likely doing it well. But I simply could not pass it up.; I knew I had to express how I felt when it came out he had done the impossible and won it ….heavily won it !
My opinions on Americans is rapidly changing from the view that they are narrow minded right wing nuts ( please realize I am a righty not a lefty in my political views but not exteme righty ) who are afraid of change and afraid of the possibilities someone outside of the box could run their country. I am now beginning to understand that there are Americans in that country that have a brain and have forward thinking abilities.
I have always been a fan of Obama. I believe his becoming president will bring some of the most stable times that country has seen in years. I do not believe the biggest thing about him being voted into the office of president is the fact that he is black. I believe the biggest thing is he is a man who has the forward thinking abilities to understand and recognize that his country needs to pull itself up by its bootstrings understand that there is a big wide world out there and to be players on the world stage that get respect then they need someone like Obama leading them.
His speach raised the hairs on my arms and made me think long and hard about all that he said. It was quite simply one of the most elequent speaches I have ever in my life heard. He made me believe in what he was saying and more importantly he made me believe he will action all that he says
I applaud you America for voting in the right and most qualified man in to the job of leading your country and your nation …..enjoy the ride think it will be a good one !
