Obama wins election. What lies ahead for America?
Will there be peace or upheaval as "the Donald" is calling for on Twitter?
I think we will get what the bulk of people voted for. Four more years of the same. I one is an Obama supporter, then they will think, "Great!" If one is a Romney supporter, then they will think, "Oh crap!"
It is all a matter of perspective.
I think if congress can swallow it's pride and work with the President, the next four years are going to surprise a lot of the American people.
Nobody can predict the future, but a few things are clear:
more people will be able to have and afford health insurance
employment will continue to rise
gas prices will continue to be a problem
the elderly won't have to worry about losing their social security or Medicare
seniors will continue to save money on their prescription medications
the rich will have to pay a fairer share of their earnings
America will become increasingly diverse
For many, life will improve.
Actually, I think America made the right choice. Not because Obama is so good, but the whole administrative changes that will happen.
Many of his ideas and motions (right or wrong) were either crushed or put on the back burner. Main reason, even though he got no cooperation from Republicans, he also had to watch his Ps & Qs with the Democrats because he wanted to ensure his being the nominee for 2012.
Now, that he has accomplished that and been re-elected, I think we will see a significant amount of issues being addressed and many resolved in the next 4 years. Here is why.
Obama is arrogant enough and ambitious enough that just being the first black president isn't near what his goals actually are. He wants to go down in history as the most influential, powerful, game-changing president in U.S. history; but not because he's black. He doesn't even want race in the equation. To him, that's trivial. With knowing his personality now, as a lame duck president, he will only have one speed. Fast.
Now, he can accomplish much of his agenda because he can achieve much more by working with ALL members of Congress. He can freely reach across party lines without the constraints of the Democratic party because there are no more future nominations for him to worry about or hung over his head. I believe, for all intents and purposes, Obama will no longer be a Democrat or become a Republican. He will now be an Independent. It's all about him.
I truly believe he is thinking," OK, Here's my one chance to make a gigantic mark in history, and I will. I can work with all that will cooperate or compromise, and if I make the rest mad, I don't really care." He's in it for him now. His ego is tremendous and in the process of him trying to satisfy that, I think we all will benefit.
I truly believe that mark he wants to make in history is a positive one. He wants future nominees to want his endorsement and advice. He wants to be remembered in the way we look at Clinton and Reagan, not Carter and Ford.
He is our leader again, like it or not. If you want to work against him, you'll understand why in 4 years, nothing is accomplished. So don't whine. We can all work together and get out of the rut we are in. We have all contributed to that rut in some way. It's going to take us all to get out of it. Not just one man.
GOOD LUCK, BARACK OBAMA!!!!! GOD BLESS!

Okay, I know this probably isn't that big of a deal to some folks, but i thought i'd bring it up anyway. On the radio the other day, I was listening to two political analysts, and one of them still insists on labeling O'Bama a moron for how he's handled things from day one of his...

Why does the mainstream media continue to attack Mitt Romney?Now that we know Mitt Romney has paid MORE than his fair share of taxes and donated millions to charities, why do people keep demonizing him? Obama came out after four Americans were murdered and said, "well, we've had a bad...
