The Failure is Mine, Not Yours

"The failure is not yours; it is mine." That is what John McCain said to his supporters tonight as he gave his concession speech. Anyone who needs more proof of the class, the integrity, and the character of John McCain is not worth listening to.

May God bless John McCain, and may God be with our new President, Barack Obama.

And if anyone posts anything disparaging about Senator McCain or our new President-elect Barack Obama, I will delete it.

Allan R. Bevere said...

Yes, Amen. May God be with us as we journey into the future.

Thanks so much for posting these thoughts. You took the words right out of my mouth. If anyone has ever exemplified graciousness in defeat, it is John McCain.

Barack Obama, soon to be our 44th President, deserves our prayers and encouragement, instead of our scorn.
