It's Over - Obama Wins a Second Term
Finally the election is over and Barack Obama has won a second term as President of the US. I am relieved to say the least, but in a way I am a bit afraid. Four years ago when Obama won his first term Republican leaders vowed to make him a "one term president" and to destroy his presidency. The Republicans in Congress opposed everything Obama did. They put the party over the good of the country. During the campaign there were numerous racial attacks aimed at Obama as well as hateful rhetoric trying to divide the country along religious, racial and even sexual orientation lines. Now that Obama has won a second term these people will be even more vile and angry toward Obama and his supporters. I sincerely hope they do not turn to obstructionist behaviors and actions or even violence to see out their revenge. It's time for the whole country to finally unite for the good of the country and her citizens. ALL of our politicians must work together and put the US first and party politics last. Good luck President Obama and good luck America.
