Now this is the change we need…..right?
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday congratulated Barack Obama on his election win — the first time an Iranian leader has offered such wishes to a U.S. president-elect since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
Ahmadinejad sent a message to Obama in which he congratulated the Democrat on “attracting the majority of voters in the election.”
In the message, Ahmadinejad also said he hopes Obama will “use the opportunity to serve the (American) people and leave a good name for history” during his term in office.
Now we can all rest easy upon knowing that the man who wants Israel wiped off the face of the earth, who is close to gaining a nuclear weapon, and is a threat to the entire middle east and the world approves of Obama.
And hey, how bout that stock market!
Hopes that Obama’s election on Tuesday would restore confidence on the battered financial markets were swiftly dashed as markets in Asia, Europe and the United States all suffered losses.
Down close to a 1000 and there is more to come folks, but at least the lib’s now feel patriotic:
Barack Obama’s presidential win held a poignant significance for liberal Seattleites: This is their America, too.
The feeling was evident in jubilant partying in the streets, in quiet moments of reflection and in blossoms of red, white and blue.
With newfound patriotism, Seattleites want to wave the flag, hang it from their homes and stick it on their cars.
“The thing that’s kind of astounding to me is I never ever would have cared to own a flag,” said Rosemary Garner, 42. “This is the first day in my life I actually feel this funny sense of pride about my country. It’s a very foreign feeling, but it’s a good one.”
