The Day Barack Obama Made History: My Opinion

I had no right to vote for Senator Barack Obama, but I have the right to congratulate him on his historic election as the next President of the United States of America on November 4, 2008.

Senator Barack Obama has become the first ever African American to be elected as the President of the United States of America. His epic achievement means a lot to African Americans and all people of color and millions of humans who have been seen as minorities or less privileged, who are now inspired to follow in his giant strides to greater heights in the world.

I was one of the conservative pundits who thought that Barack Obama would not be able to defeat John McCain in the presidential election, but he has proved us wrong and many factors were responsible for his historic victory last Tuesday.

I blame the inefficiencies and inadequacies of the John McCain presidential campaign strategists. Their old fashioned political tactics were out of sync with the new wave social pop culture of the new generation of Americans in the 21st century. The majority of American youths identified with the younger presidential candidate who became their political rock star of the moment. Barack Obama campaign strategists were more streetwise online and offline than the John McCain campaign strategists. The better presidential campaign team won!

Barack Obama campaign strategists also spent a lot of money on media planning and branding for the social marketing of Barack Obama on the largest social networking sites and the media blitz overwhelmed the John McCain campaign. Millions of them contributed and donated a lot to boost the presidential prospects of Barack Obama.

Barack Obama covered more ground and increased his mileage and patronage. His long presidential primary campaign against Hillary Clinton also propelled the political momentum of Barack Obama and made him a phenomenal political icon of American liberals who idolized him as their flag bearer and he successfully navigated the course of a new era as the catalyst of change, a turning point in the political history of America. His intellectual brilliance and poetic eloquence made Barack Obama charismatic and magnetic and his biracial family background also made him more colorful with a cross over appeal to all Americans and others who flocked to him like junkies hooked on Ecstasy.

The majority of Americans was also tired of the Republican Party and they have had enough of the economic and socio-political failures and foreign policy blunders of President George W. Bush and since Senator John McCain belongs to the same GOP, Barack Obama accused him of being complicit with the Bush administration. He labeled him as an accomplice of the villified Bush administration and the financial crisis with the looming recession worsened the presidential prospects of John McCain. Barack Obama piled on the complicity of John McCain with the Bush administration on the hated war in Iraq.

Barack Obama was smarter!

I believe that if God did not permit it, it would not have happened and God has His divine reasons for it.

I wish him all the best as he leads America in the beginning of the nation building of a New America in the leadership of the world in the 21st century.

There will be exclusive news videos of the historic election of Barack Obama on this site for as long as Jesus Christ tarries.

Dear Americans, Beware of Voter Intimidation and Electoral Fraud!

Dear Americans, Beware of Voter Intimidation and Electoral Fraud!

Senator John McCain

The future of America is at stake today as American voters troop out to elect the next President of the United States of America.
It is either Senator John McCain or Senator Barack Obama.
The choice is yours.
Vote wisely.

Senator Barack Obama

Here is an update from NAACP.

It's Election Day, and our Election Protection hotline has been ringing since the minute the polls opened. As of 10am, over 12,000 reports have been logged. Most of the reports involve faulty or inadequate voting equipment and polling place issues, but we have also logged 115 incidents nationally of voter intimidation.

In Virginia, where the NAACP filed a lawsuit to keep the polls open longer, we are seeing several problems. More groups are joining the call to keep the polls open two hours later tonight. There are reports of massive voting machine failures, over two dozen precincts opening late, people being turned away, and voter intimidation.
In Michigan we have received calls about malfunctioning voter machines in at least ten precincts, causing extremely long waits. Unfortunately, the waits are causing some people to give up and get out of line. We will continue to monitor the situation in Michigan throughout the day.

And in Florida, we've just received a slew of reports about broken optical scanners and extremely long lines. We also just received a call that absentee ballots were not received at a rehab center for elderly residents.

We'll be here at the Command Center all day to respond to voting problems in real time. In addition, the NAACP has trained poll monitors strategically placed across the country to monitor 750 precincts where there has been a history of discrimination, and the NAACP Voter Relief team is driving between polling places in the Baltimore/DC/Virginia area offering coffee, water, and snacks to the voters standing in long lines.

We'll be sending you another update around 5pm so be sure to check your email. And if you haven't voted yet, get out there and make your voice heard!
