How Did People Respond?

I have a pretty wide range of friends. I know liberals & conservatives, Christians and non Christians, Democrats & Conservatives. Each of these groups overlap each other and present a very diverse viewpoint on major events. So I thought I'd share with you some of the responses that my friends posted as status updates either on their Facebook or Twitter. (I have removed the names to protect the innocent!)

Read through and tell me what you think!

  1. Smooth talkers win in single’s bars and politics…often with similar outcomes for the listener.
  2. Just found out that a Republican has not won the white house without a Bush or a Nixon on the ticket since 1928.
  3. I must not follow people who think Obama = Marx. Saves me from having to read negative end of the world updates! Christ is Lord!
  4. Good, bad or other it's over...thank God
  5. Just heard Geraldo Rivera claim that McCain lost because of Tina Fey. How awesome is that?
  6. Is new to this experience of not being disappointed after an election.
  7. Not sure why people want Hussein to be president, but thinks it will probably speed up the return of Christ
  8. Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. Romans 13:1.
  9. Very proud of the United States of America. As a man from Africa said, it took courage and a high level of morality.
  10. Excited for things to come...life is good!
  11. Has a peace…God is still in control
  12. Loving this breezy fall day,the brilliant colors remind me of where Real HOPE for CHANGE lies.
  13. So excited about the CRAP salary that (this person)'s going to be getting an RN now....thanks future healthcare system....I appreciate it!!!
  14. At least (we) have family in Canada if things get too bad....
  15. Feels that there couldnt have been anything more American then getting a free donut in exchange for my vote this year.
  16. Thank god the election is over!!!
  17. Continues to pray for (this person's) country.
  18. Finally voted third party yesterday...at least my conscience is clear.
  19. In a state of mourning for our Nation.
  20. Shocked at how out of control some people are.
  21. Loves the "land of the free and the home of the brave.".
  22. Noticed that the sun came up this morning.
  23. Wondering how many people who left ignorant status updates on their profile went to the polls yesterday and voted??? Time for change....time for a new age!
  24. B.O. is in...and hearing stories about his skin color is a waste of time. Focus on the man, not his color!
  25. Glad Obama won The Final Endgame Go Time Alpha Action Lift-Off Decide-icidal Hungry Man's Extreme Raw Power Ultimate Voteslam Smackdown'08.

"The sun came up this morning" awesome! It was even warm! Hmmm...it may not be the end of everything good on the earth after all!

I thought the comparison between Obama and Marx was bad. Did someone in that list compare Obama to Hussein? WOW!

Whoever wrote the very last one is brilliant.

I'm surprised mine didn't make it on there... "Robert has fun reading people's statuses re: expecting the impending doom of socialism."

Woohoo #24...My post had little to do with Obama and more to do with Media Coverage.

I did have to spend 15 minutes last night at youth group calming down the entire group (anti-Obama) and explaining that the world was not over, he can do good, we need to unify, there is hope, and he didn't win "just because a bunch of uneducated black people were registered just for this election (yes, this was said verbatim by a kid)"

This scene reminded me of '92 and '96 and how I felt about Clinton. I think I've matured some and hope the youth continue to do the same...I'm not an Obama lover, but it's time to get to work, and he is our leader.

Phil must live in Greenfield. I was in town last weekend and Sunday would make me think our only hope was in the Republican party.
