  • everybody was sick and tired of the Republicans
  • in comparison to McSame and Failin' Palin- he looked much much better.
  • He won the election? And the Republicans managed to ruin thier reputation in 4 years (2000-2004)
  • The little voice in the crowd that should have said "The emperor has no clothes on!" was not heard.
  • He was elected, by the people.
  • There was no way that Bush could steal the presidency three times in a row!
  • that statement could really open a can of worm.First of all what Obama is speaks so loudly who could hear what he says.I don't mean a black or white thing either,i mean a weak minded person,being led by smarter people.he is just a pawn,in the political game of N.I.G.Y.S.O.B.(now i got you,son of a bxxxx)if anybody thinks he is doing anything they had better rethink.there are people who voted for Alfred E.Obama who has never voted in their lives and i mean older people,not the just turned of age ,people. He is a Idiot and time will proove it.
  • he's white enough for the white folks, and black enough for the blacks :P
  • Because he got the majority of the votes in the election!
  • people focused on "changing history" by voting someone into office who was black as oppossed to actually focusing on his qualifacations (or I should say lack thereof)!
  • ...the Republicans put a liberal douche bag forth instead of someone who stands for conservative values.
  • the people didn't like the other options.
  • Because some people voted more then once and got away with it. These are facts.
  • HE'S BLACKKKKKKKKKK !
  • he is a smart man no doubt,but if GWB could of run again he would of blowed Alfred E. Obama out of the water. the days of fair elections are over.It's about Money,and who will do the job that the secondary Government wants done,since GWB could not run again you put in choice number two and that is Alfred E> Obama. Did you notice what happen when Hillary Clinton got to close,Poof!! same thing that happen few years back when Ross Perot got to close. the more you stir old crap the worse it stinks.
  • his republican contenders were dingbats. they had no moral fiber.
  • I am greedy, want more answers on this topic because I personally feel that there was something that happened behind the scences working to his advantage. He is just a pawn (as someone rightly pointed out here) in the hands of rich and powerful and that he indeed was brought in the continue with the work that Bush started. Now you have the proof in Afghnaistan. He promised to American public that he will bring American men back but never told them that he would be sending them to Afghanistan-a place more dangerous than Iraq! Unlike Iraq, where the fight is between Shias and Sunnis, between Iran and Saudi, Afghanistan is way more dangerous and the fight is directly between the forces and the militants who indulge in guirella tactics as they are familiar with the tough life and terrain of that region. Obama has deceived the American public. All that he was best suited to was Stand Up comedian job in some entertainment channel but destiny had planned something else for him and unfortunately for the American public too!!!
  • He became President because he got the most votes. As to WHY he got the most votes, well, some felt he'd do the job right. Others didn't vote for Obama, but AGAINST the Republicans. The Republican party is toxic after the last 8 years. It says something that the only shot at winning the Republicans had was to nominate a man they previously decried as a 'RINO' and a 'liberal'. And yet, he STILL lost. Honestly, I think it was as much a repudiation of the Republican party as it was about Obama himself.
  • Because this is what was fed to us by the media.
  • No better candidate wanted the job.
  • This is a good example. I can't put another pic up there so I'll do it here.
  • Because he won more electoral votes than McCain. We do not elect a President by popular vote.
  • He was the best choice, his running mate is competant to take over; McCain is very old and his running mate scared most people out of believing she could handle the presidency, Id rather see Hillary take over, hell shes already had 8 years in the same chair with Bill bangin interns.
  • too may people want a free ride, they bought into the socialist dream and forgot or do not realize how evil it is.
  • We haven't seen an actual Statesman in decades.
  • He won because: 1) we wanted to punish the right for W. 2) we desperately needed someone to clean up the image of America in the world 3) we bought into his message of hope and change when the right's message was of anger and negativity 4) Palin's stupidity and McCain's age 5) McCain's comment about the fundamentals of the economy being strong when the sky was actually falling 6) Obama was one of the first to oppose an unpopular war and speak up against torture 7) Obama capitalized on the use of social media to access a younger demographic 8) Obama is a great orator. Obviously, what is happening now is very different from campaign time, but to answer your question, that is why he got elected.
