Presidential elections have been a stable for more than two hundred years – since, America broke from the British rule. Honest Abraham Lincoln the nation’s 16th President of the United States would’ve been proud of Democratic President Barack Obama for winning a second term to the White House.
President Lincoln abolished the ruling of slavery in America in the mid 1860’s. He was a life long Republican at heart and self educated, became one of the greatest of three American Presidents ranked by American Scholars, he was followed by President George Washington and President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
The election of 2012 brings a whole new meaning to American politics as President Obama embarks on his continued mission of bringing a decade of war to an abrupt end and bringing troops home from a decade of war and re-energizing the economy jittered by a previous Republican President, that left the country in despair from an unspeakable decision of sending troops and wasteful spending and loss of American jobs to overseas corporations, after the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
As the nation’s first African-American President, Obama beams the likes of Lincoln and Roosevelt in his political ambitions as President. I’m often asked in the waning days up to election day of what my take and view was on American Politics and the President ticket of 2012 – My answer was to wait it out and see how the electoral college played with the 270 votes that were needed to win the White House – Obama swept Governor Mitt Romney 303-205 in the final national tally toward the end of the night as the east coast stayed up into the wee hours of the night to wait for the final results and the final grandstanding of a winning a new elected Republican President or the Re-Election of President Obama as American’s casted their votes at the polls, voters were getting jittery as Romney shown he was leading the pack, but, Obama shot back and made it clear – America wanted him back in the Oval Office, not a man who thought, the Presidency was a laughing joke and a prudent to puppet politics.
As I watched the night unfold, I was a complete nervous jittery wreck, wishing that Obama would’ve scored the first winning points, but, Romney blew the lead until late in the night, after getting home from dinner, a short bike ride and a joyful stop at the local Starbucks joint, Obama started to sweeping the nation in political points left and right – even though, Romney red eyed the Midwest and a couple southern spit ballers to his name, the Obama camp fired up the voters with the long lines and tallies from the west coast to secure the White House once again.
“Impressive!” – I thought from the political standpoint, but, luckily, I didn’t bet any of my Republican friends on this election otherwise, the election would’ve swayed in their favor! Thanks to whomever gave me that idea, wherever you are…. There is a thought though – I keep seeing a lot of Abe Lincoln in Barack Obama from a voters standpoint of view. It’s actually a good feeling because, Lincoln would’ve admired the way Obama made a difference in his re-election campaign and working with voters to brighten the future of America into a brighter future for the next four years.
