    So the President was reelected for one more term. What does that mean, will he get America out of the financial dire-straits or won't that really matter--its the cushy job!

      Hello Marwan,

      While I didn't vote for the President's re-election, I do perceive him as a compassionate man. I don't necessarily expect him to solve all of the United States' financial problems, but his re-election does give hope to the working class. I believe he will do everything in his power to deal with education, jobs, welfare, and clean, renewable energy. The younger, culturally diverse voters have re-elected him, and it's our responsibility as citizens to help make the U.S. a good place to live. All one has to do is turn on the news to realize the problems and issues, not only the U.S., but the whole world faces. May God bless President Obama with clear mindedness and good health during his 2013-2017 term.

      It is one thing to want to help Americans out and get things back on their path.  It is quite another to want to dismantle the fabric of this nation from its beginning and that is exactly what is going on here.  This president has no intention of relieving the fiscal burdens, in fact, he will be increasing them until the back of the middle income wage earner is broken.  The "will" of America cannot be overcome until the middle class throws in the towel and gives up. There is no sincere move toward bi-partisanship nor is there any real focus on the fiscal situation.  Oh sure, he has declared it an emergency as he always does when he wants to hurry and get his way about things.  You can bet that he will be asking for another stimulus....probably double the last one as a necessity of his agreement on anything to do with spending.  If this situation warrants his priority and attention...what is he doing touring Southeast Asia?  Why is he ignoring the instability in the private sector?  Why has the administration dragged their feet on releasing information that capital investment in the country is in the toilet and has been there for more than six months?  This president has played to th unaware and uninformed to regain his office.  That sector will beg him to lead us into a world of big government socialism which is right down his alley of beliefs anyway.  There is no interest here in improving the lot of the American citizen, this is about "fundamental transformation" and the sooner people figure that out, the better chance they have of saving their country. ~WB

    I have mixed feelings. Right now being away from the US I still follow what happens in my homeland. I am a bit confused on Obama's reelection because my girlfriend was all for the Republican side and she is worried about the microchip business and other issues. I am not too much into politics but if Pres. Obama is truly a descent family man let's give him a chance to fix what is wrong in the US.
