She's been very gracious, stating that she stands behind the new president and hopes others will too.

I am happy that Obama won, but let's not spoil this with the "ha ha, we won, you didn't!!"
I look at it as the whole country won (but I'm biased that way) and that I welcome other points of view.
We're going to need it. With a Democratic president and a majority in congress, we need to be more bipartisan...I don't want to see a country lean too much left or too much right!!!
yes, ITA. there's no need to call someone out just because they had a different vision for what they wanted for the country.

I like both Obama and McCain although I voted Obama... I just don't trust that darn Palin. I think we can all agree Obama will make a good president and McCain ran a great race and gave a beautiful speech.

The election is over and so should the snippy comments. No need to be rude, implicitly or explicitly. Amanda, me, you, and 59 million other people exercised our right to vote. We all may have voted differently, but that choice shouldn't be ridiculed.

Come on you guys... girls...you know what I mean. It's all in good spirits . Ok, tsk tsk to the OP, but man up AmandaCurls. Don't feel so attacked. I don't think she was calling you out, as she was probably just poking at you. Water off a duck's back... It's all good. Yes, everyone should take a page from Obama's book... the new American way is cool as a cucumber and unaffected by the nay-sayers. That goes for all of us. Oh yeah... it's all so very good! Feels like the 60's... and I wasn't born until '86!

Funny how the biggest loud mouth rude people complaining about McCains dirty campaign and praising Obama and his high road have been the biggest mudslingers for months. Doing the exact opposite of what they claim Obama does and wants.

I'm so glad this is almost over.

Doubtful, looking back at her previous posts I would have to disagree with you. To me it seems more like a "we won, you lost" thing, and that's immature. I wouldn't be gloating if the guy I voted for had won. I wouldn't have started a thread titled "Where's Ms Kitty?" Seriously, reviewing the posting history, nothing would make me think "it's all in good spirits".

Poking fun at Amanda?!? Are you kidding me???? Have you attempted to read Ms Kitty's posts, particularly the ones attacking Amanda?

I suggest people do their homework here before jumping to any conclusions.

Amanda, you have every right to feel like you do. I'm not happy about the election results either. Like you I am not taking any cheap shots because of my disappointment.

Some people can't even win graciously.

I almost started a post stating that we should all shake hands with the opposite team, accept that this game is over and head back to our respective lockrooms, just like 8th grade basketball

Ladies, and gents, let's save our engeries for other things. (like celebrating)

Okay, I'll quote myself then [enter the bolded]... Now, as I stated before, don't let it bother you. Water off a ducks back. You can't control any other person/poster other than yourself. So let them gloat and do your part, as you said you would. Unite with us to support our president and advance our country. Maybe by focussing on that, people's comments will lose their effectivness. But no nastiness gets a free pass, not even from the left side. It's unity time ladies....

If I had done the same thing, people would be griping at me and I'd probably already be banned.

Can you imagine the insults and predictions being tossed around in multiple threads had McCain won and anybody dared even start a "YEAH" thread?

I think that gloating is not very mature behavior. Please, no digs at the McCain supporters!

Many of the Obama supporters on this thread posted that the callout was not cool. Celebrate, yes, but not mocking fellow nc.com-ers

But we can't play the what if game.

(well, maybe the racists. but only when provoked)

ITA, too. I think Amandacurls has been gracious and gave the McCain supporters a good name. I appreciated her and others points of view. We need to come together as Americans and not point fingers or gloat. We all have the right to our own opinions.

I found it pretty crappy myself. Amanda has not been one of those people who have called Obama names and all that jazz. As a matter of fact, we've spoken since McCain's loss and she has noted how she is a tad sad that he didn't win but still optimistic about Obama.

Absolutely - I didn't mean them (you).

I agree that this thread was in very poor taste. I almost wanted to pull the thread last night (and I never do that), but then saw that everyone had edited.

I don't even know what else to say, except I really want the bickering to end. And if you want, I can lock the thread, Amanda.

Yes, at the end of the day we are all Americans and we are all Curlies/Wavies. We need to get together and fight the real enemy the Straight Haired people.
