I think the reason it was so close is that people didn't want Obama again. But when your other choice is Mitt Romney, it's sort of like, fine, I guess it'll have to be Obama.
I'm astounded that the only 2 people America gave themselves for President is Obama & Romney though. Surely there's a point where someone says "Isn't there anyone better in this country to run for President!?"
As a great friend of the Americans
You get what you VOTE for
Relieved the nazi didn't win.
The way I see it it was a victory for the lesser of two evils. I am not at all crazy about what Obama has done in regards to foreign policy and the new police state next door is terrifying but the same foreign policy and even more police state under Romney plus his right wing economics would have turned the US into a combination of the GDR and Greece especially with that crackpot Ryan as VP.
All of my Belgian friends were hoping for Obama to win. They got their wish.
Honestly really happy.
Not much change in the house, but very happy Romney did not take office. Also, great progress for both gay rights and for marijuana legalization.
i am glad it's over...oh i am sorry i am american.
Just waiting for all the complaining too stop in a month or two
The better man got the job. I wonder if the house will let him get anything done.
Let's hope not. Unless he begins to compromise.
