President Obama Wins Second Term!


President Obama has won reelection!

FOX News: "President Obama will win re-election, Fox News projects. The call comes after the president was the projected winner in the crucial battleground of Ohio, and subsequently won both Iowa and Oregon. This put Obama over the required 270 electoral votes."

  1. My partner and I toasted the Prez with what will be our wedding flutes! Just waiting on DOMA so we'll be equal to other military families!

  7. Look, we dodged a bullet, but let's not go overboard. Obama is still the lesser of two evils. We can't turn a blind eye to his track record on trashing civil liberties, drug prohibition, the surveillance state, drones, NDAA, and Bradley Manning. We need to put an end to the permanent War on Terror, revisit single-payer health care, close Guantanamo like he said he would four years ago, cut defense spending, and stop prosecuting whistle-blowers like it's going out of style.

  8. So could you say Americans have in fact voted that LGBT should have full equality?

  9. I'm so proud. A President that truly makes me proud to be American. Who understands the common man, works his damnest to improve the lives of ALL Americans, sees LGBT men and women as deserving of equal rights (and fights for them!), one who believes that everyone deserves a fair shot at the "American Dream," and someone who I believe shares the same vision of America as I do.

    Great job, Mr. President! Four more years :)

  10. "Mitt is not conceding Ohio."
    "Karl Rove is calling foul in Ohio..."

    It's truly sad when Romney and Rove say that Faux News is lying.

    @Betty: "needs some time to write [concession speech]" ROFL

  11. Congratulations America! Tonight I regained a little bit of hope in humankind and the dream that we can all live in a world of equality and social justice.

  12. Now that Obama doesn't have to worry about being elected again, what can he do for us as the leader of the free world?

  13. What an incredible night. Obama reelected, marriage equality in 3 more states! Congratulations my fellow Americans.

  15. Can someone dig up that miserable old hag from the Romney video ("God gonna make sure Romney wins") the other day and interview her? Please? I wanna laugh even harder than I am right now.

  16. @Betty: Did you have inside info or were you just prescient?

    @Eddie: just one from a Romney video? You should have been spending time viewing the Religious Right's hatred for Obama during this campaign. There have been *plenty* who've gone on internet record as believing that God would make sure Romney wins.

    The traditional body part used to symbolize the protection of God is the hand. They tried a different body part in the following: "If we see Romney elected we will have seen the finger of God." I thought that was true, but of course in a different sense than they were intending.

  17. Congratulations Barack Obama!

    Thank you for wiping the floor with Mitt Romney. Their were so many reasons for me to vote for you and in Alexandria, VA where I am from I waited 2 hours to cast my vote. Obama won 3 votes for every 1 vote that Romney had here. I love living where I do, and I am so proud to be from Virginia and vote for such a phenomenal President Barack Obama!

  18. WOW, this is thrilling. Thrilling. Important history in the making. Our man is now going to do even greater things than before. And with marriage equality winning so well we'll pitch in ever more enthusiastically. It's our country too, and we are welcome more than ever.

    Evangelicals note: Jesus would have been the first to vote for us, your religious right never thought to consider something so obvious (not that I'm any kind of Christian).

  19. No Diogenes, all of the networks were reporting that Thurston only wrote one speech. One that he didn't end up using of course!

  20. YES VIRGINIA, AND THE OTHER 49 STATES... THERE IS A SANTA CLAUSE! I admit that I have been depressed and scared in the past few weeks, because the media said there was a possibility that Mitt Romney could be elected President. When I looked at his supporters, all I could see was white America with a few sprinkled of Rich Blacks,Gays and Jews... and when I looked at our President... I could see a sea of diversity and the message of hope for ALL Americans. I feared that if Romney had won,it would be a step in the wrong direction, especially for Gay Americans. It looked like gays might lose their friend in the White house. However, America has seen the light of a brighter tomorrow of a inclusive President, instead of an exclusive band of rich Americans. I want to thank all those who worked hard campaigning for the Obama/ Biden ticket and gay marriage and equal rights. Tomorrow,tomorrow and tomorrow is looking good. Now lets start campaigning to get the house back in the Blue States column in the next election. We have just begun to fight!

  21. "So, who's delusional now, Markus?"

    Perhaps he should be on a suicide watch for a few days.

  23. What a glorious day! And what a thriller night this has been as well. Watched 11 hours staight on Danish TV, and what a freaking awesome outcome. So happy for you guys, and indeed for the world!

    And to all the lowlifes who always claimed that God was on their (Republican) side, well guess what; God didn't want you to win. Deal with it, haters! lmao!

    YAY xXx

  24. Hopefully the Towleroad Trolls® will be too scared to come out from underneath their bridges for a while.

  25. Amazing. Nothing else needed to be said. Tonight has been amazing. Four more years, here we come!
