President Obama Wins
“We’re all in this together. That’s how we campaigned, and that’s who we are. Thank you,” Obama tweeted even before formally announcing his victory. The first black U.S. president, won re-election by overcoming four years of economic discontent, he delivered an intense victory speech to a cheering crowd of supporters in Chicago early this morning after winning another four years in the White House. The 44th president of the United states delivers a promising note “the best is yet to come.”
After trailing in both Electoral College votes and the popular vote to Republican challenger Mitt Romney, Obama surged ahead with victories in key battleground states of Ohio and Virginia to win the election.
Obama defeated Republican Mitt Romney, winning at least 303 electoral votes in yesterday’s election with 270 needed for the victory. With one state — Florida — yet to be decided, Romney had 206 electoral votes. The president faces a partisan divide in Congress, with Republicans retaining their House majority while Democrats kept control of the Senate, and a looming fiscal crisis of automatic spending cuts and tax increases set to begin next year unless a compromise is reached. Obama thanked campaign workers and voters, and praised the nation’s teachers, soldiers, workers, and vowed not to squander the opportunity given to him to continue his work for a second term.
“I believe we can build on the progress we’ve made and continue to fight for new jobs and new opportunities and new security for the middle class,” Obama said.
Obama will once again face the challenge of leading the country with a divided Congress, as Democrats retained control of the Senate and Republicans maintained their hold over the House of Representatives. Obama made clear he had an agenda in mind for his second term, citing changes in the tax code, immigration reform and, as he put it, an America “that isn’t threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet.”
Will Obama delivers a successful 4 years in the White House, will he be more determined, more inspired than ever not only for the country he was serving but for the poor countries around the globe?
