Last night, their plan failed. Obama and his team of campaign workers and voters boldly won a second term, resisting criticism and vowing to lead America into greatness again.
Obama, the Defier, didn't win last night by himself. Democrats ran a post modern, pro democracy campaign, using technology and diversity to its fullest. They kept their base and expanded it with forward thinking and by reiterating that the United States stands for inclusion.
Romney and the Republicans lost because of their pompously elitist divisiveness and inability to realize the love others share for Our President. They sold Obama short. They should now have a greater respect for Obama and must use this respect to help turn this country's economy around.
We are still praying for President Obama. We are still praying for our nation which is more than soil in Blue and Red states...but people who care about each other and are dedicated to a government invested by its citizens.
May our President, our political leaders, and our people move forward into a better day!
Email message from Obama early this morning:
"I'm about to go speak to the crowd here in Chicago, but I wanted to thank you first. I want you to know that this wasn't fate, and it wasn't an accident. You made this happen. You organized yourselves block by block. You took ownership of this campaign five and ten dollars at a time. And when it wasn't easy, you pressed forward. I will spend the rest of my presidency honoring your support, and doing what I can to finish what we started. But I want you to take real pride, as I do, in how we got the chance in the first place. Today is the clearest proof yet that, against the odds, ordinary Americans can overcome powerful interests. There's a lot more work to do. But for right now: Thank you. Barack"
