Obama wins second term at the White House
Its another challenging 4 years for Barrack Obama as President
President Obama Wins his second term
Its pandemonium today for Obama supporters, and for all those folks who've chosen to vote for him, and he's now our President of the United States of America for yet a second term. This all comes at a huge stake to the American people, and by means of the most massive negative campaign ever known to mankind. Costing close to a billion dollars combined for both candidates campaigns. Mitt Romney losses to Obama's 300 electoral votes, and they both spent wads of cash to duke it out in this election, according to advertizing trackers (Some info relevance researched at MSN News.).
Romney's camp was said to have spent a total of $550 million, where as Obama's camp spent only $381 million. This was just the tip of the iceberg, because what it all boiled down to in the end was that of the popular votes, and in that of the swing states as well as battle ground states of Ohio, Iowa, Colorado, and New Hampshire. (battle ground states info referenced from Wikinews)
Either way the final straw sort to speak and ultimate deciding factors that weighed in heavy on the minds of the voters was the state of the economy, and taxes in our great country. They stated in Wikinews, that Romney won in both North Carolina, and Indiana, which President Obama had previously won them both back in his first election in 2008.
Here's how the electoral votes played out State by State
So how did Obama really win yet another term?
People are truly concerned about how the American economy is going to play itself out, and the only guess could be is that they feel that President Obama has a much more stabilized and realistic approach to tackling the issues we all face economically.
The poor people in America has grown at an alarming rate and ever since the economic collapse of 2008. So this is how Obama's reinforcement of his particular style campaign may have earned him yet another victory, because of the main predominant factor of his campaign, that focused on raising the taxes for the rich, and for those who earn about $250,000 a year on up. Romney's plan was quite different, and he wanted to raise taxes for everyone pretty much except for the rich and the exclusively powerful.
Romney also spoke of a specific tax strategy that was so unclear to the American people of how it would actually work itself out, that he may have fired the nail in his own political coffin per say as to losing out on the Presidency of the U.S.
What do the American People want from President Obama
People aren't going to care much anymore about the election, and the negative campaigning all after today, that will quickly fade into the background, because it was all just smoke and mirrors after all. What the people are looking for is rapid growth of the economy, real change when it comes to personal finances, housing, jobs, education, and basic day to day career opportunities is the start where we truly need fixing today.
The question that shall remain unanswered until the President takes action, and the legislation actually begins to work itself out by act of Congress, and that of the Senate committees, will be the hammer, and chisel that will definitively seal the deal for the most part. If all the members of the Senate and in the House of Representatives can agree for once, and we as United Americans can live up to the expectations of being fair to one another as law abiding citizens, then maybe change that we're all desperately in need of shall come. (Let's not forget the 1% who run everything financially, they need to become much more responsible, and accountable for what they spend, and for how they choose to recruit staff into their organizations, and corporations)
The President has made us all a promise, that he needs to keep, and that is to make change that the American people truly need, and so even including that of the healthcare system, how taxes, and economic relief programs are managed, and how Obama will manage all the monies being dispersed amongst the masses through such effective programs, will all be the determining factors as to how things shall pan out over the course of these 4 years.
A look back in time at President Obama's first inaugural address
Will Obama bring more peace, or will foreign wars fuel up
The political climate around the globe as well will soon play a huge factor in what shall occur for that of the American people, will we all be plunged into another war or multiple wars, on foreign soil, well that has yet to be determined.
The Iraqi war, and war on Afghanistan has seemed to fade into the distance as old issues that aren't worthy of throwing up for discussion any longer it seems, but that doesn't mean things shall not arise in the unforeseen future in terms of action that the President may need to take, as response to making a defensive stance strategy if need be. We shall see what is to happen for sure in terms of him playing an active role as Commander and Chief on all domestic and foreign relations.
The Presidents response to the latest Hurricane recovery efforts
Obama's action commitee to tackle Sandy recovery efforts - in the Situation Room
Words of wisdom counts a great deal & Action speaks louder
The rapid response of the President to get us in the East Coast who are struggling to survive, much needed emergency medical assistance, food supplies, and disaster recovery assistance has been awesome indeed."Thanks Mr President."
The author of this article strongly believes that if President Obama can live up to his words, and as he has come through here, by taking evasive actions in this huge crisis our country and American people have faced. Our country will truly be heading back in the right directions, if he falters just the slightest bit, well we all known where that leads us all, and so lets pray for him to do well, as his once vicious presidential campaign competitor Romney has done after losing the candidacy.
Dealing with this sudden defeat from the mega-storm and natural disaster Hurricane Sandy, wasn't easy at all for most people who live here in the East Coast region of the United States, and so it has united most people in a global effort of recovery from utter peril.
American people respond, but positive actions ease tensions
Even though people seem to have flared up tensions at long gasoline lines with cars and holding containers for hours, and some were even battling it out fist to fist. We as a united people overall have worked together to make this recovery happen, and the issues are being taken care of thanks to the President, servicemen and women who've been working around the clock, police, fire departments, ambulance, National Guard, soup kitchens, church organizations, FEMA, the American Red Cross, donations, kind American citizens who actually helped one another and all the countless volunteers from around the globe who pored in their on going support to help us recover. "Thank you all!"
According to Wikipedia "The National Guard and U.S. Air Force put as many as 45,000 personnel in at least seven states on alert for possible duty in response to the preparations and aftermath of Sandy". So this was the proof for the American people as well, that weighed in heavily in President Obama's favor to help him sweep in yet another victory. We will see if it was indeed the right decision to have been made, by us all.
