Speeches by Barack Obama and John McCain last night

Both the winner and the loser of yesterday's presidential race were unusually eloquent last night. It's worth reading what they both had to say with some care.
Here is President-elect Barack Obama's address in Chicago:
And here is U.S. Sen. John McCain's speech in Phoenix.

There are a few negroes where I work and they are all nice people. Two of them are wearing Obama stuff today in celebration of their brotha's victory. Although I'm sure their scruntiny is clouded by Obama's and their race, I am happy for them.

Blessed be, you sound like a kook. What kind of "work" are you talking about, handing out more welfare entitlements? Get back on the floor and scrub.

Blessed Be OBAMA and BIDEN, in every known way.

For wisdom returns to EARTH, on this blessed day.

I really don't understand all you negative ninnies,I can't and won't imagine what would happen to the future of the nation had mccain/palin won (thank god for smart voters that they didn't win), the only thing mccain had under his belt was the fact he was a POW, and a vet, SOOO what there are alot of those people around on the street and homeless, jobless and some are mentally impaired and obama will correct that situation.

Most of them won't want anything to do with that. He'd better skip the homeless and go on to stealing our retirements, creating his own civilian police force, throwing out the Constitution, closing the coal mines, lunching with terrorists, taking our guns away, causing unemployment, and creating a country that none of us will recognize. He's got a lot to do.

10:11 This is what would have happened to our nation if McCain/Palin had won: we would have remained a democracy, a country with a system of government that made us the strongest and most free nation on earth.

Now, it's Halloween, and you kids went out without your flashlights. You can't see what's out there, but you will feel it.

Good move, he's one of those who can't earn money on his own. He screws people out of it then pretends to protect the taxpayers. How's he going to protect them against him?

Steve,

Why do you allow these racist comments to be posted?

I really don't appreciate our city being dragged down by giving others the impression that these ignorant few, are representative of, or speak for the average Bristol citizen.

The term "negro" is not a racist term.

Have you ever heard of the United Negro College Fund?

"Negroid is an adjective derived from the term Negro and refers to a presumed race of people mostly from sub-Saharan Africa. The concept's existence is based on a now defunct typological method of racial classification"

from wikipedia

some are mentally impaired and obama will correct that situation.

You won't recognized america that we are use to?Because of the last 8ys nobody recognized how bad the republicans demolished it! thats the recognition your talking about, you sound like your bias!!!!

Demolished? I don't think so. When I went to a restaurant for breakfast this morning, there was a line for tables. Then I went to the store and there was a long line there too. Starbucks had a long wait, as it did yesterday after I waited for some one to help me at the jeweler's.

And come to think of it, none of these customers were ducking bombs or dodging bullets while waiting in line. So they were safely whiling away their free time spending money. Sorry but it doesn't look like Bush did such a bad job.

The NAACP uses "Colored." So what? The word that is politically correct one day is incorrect the next. How many terms have we gone through for "mentally challenged"? The Political Correctness Police have way too much time on their hands.
Just think how much better things would be if they concentrated their efforts on finding a cure for cancer, feeding the hungry, or helping single parents.
