I have a feeling that people just voted for him just to say we have a black president but really didn't know what he was representing

Pardon me folks, but I thought this was a Fire Department oriented group...not a political forum. 

I'm guilty too, having contributed a little to this thread.

But black or white, we burn alike.  Let's get back on track.

Dude, are you even going to be old enough to vote in 4 years? I mean really, think before you type, and if you really believe that you are nuts.

 No, he's right. This election had people voting for the first time, many of them where eligible in the past but never voted before. There was also a number of voters who don't like Bush and felt that McCain would carry on his policies which is also why Obama got some more votes.

Tl-ff, Although true about alot of the first time voters who never voted before, I don't believe McCain would have won against Hillary, and then people would be saying its cause shes a woman. I think the majority of the country wanted a democrat to win, no matter who the front runner would be.
However, I know this kid personally, and he really does not know what hes talking about with 1/2 the things he sais.
Stay safe.
