PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMAToday has been another historic moment. Not because a President was elected, but because this is the first time in Presidential history that an African-American has won the Presidency a second time. President Obama, exhausted after a long, hard-fought campaign with his challenger Governor Mitt Romney, now has another 4 years to continue his work in an all out attempt to bring back the economy. Again, the republicans will have to endure democratic President Barack Obama.
The conservative talk show hosts will sound like they are all in a hangover, thinking that what has happened was a bad dream. In reality, the people of the country have spoken, and did so loudly. Obamacare is now safe with Obama continuing to guard his most famous legislation. The Supreme Court not so long in the distant past has also validated Obamacare All of the statements like, " I will repeal Obamacare my first day in office", by Mitt Romney are now just words of his memory. The name of Paul Ryan will finally become a name in the past. No vice-president that lost re-election or a vice-presidential candidate that lost an election has ever come back to run for President.
It's not to say that Paul Ryan will not run for President some day, but let's look at the last election as an example. Did John McCain or Sarah Palin run for President this year? Will Sara Palin ever run for President? These are questions for the future and it's really too early to know, but now is a time to reflect on a long campaign in which the President came on top, and the celebration for the victory will be short lived.
In the morning, the President will continue in his position as acting President of the United States, this time not worrying if he may be put out of office.
As a result of this election, this blog will be around for at least another 4 years.
