The 2012 Election that got us glued to make a choice for America is done. I made a new years resolution since January 1st of this year that Barack Obama will repeat as President of the United States. Well…………who won? Come on. Admit it. Say it. Say it………That’s ok. Most already know.

If any American, or a political guru analyst (ala Nate Silver) was hanging on every single official Electoral College Vote last night, most did predict that Barack Obama had a slim chance of winning the second term. Now for those who me know this: the Electoral College is the poll I follow! All of that preliminary stuff didn’t mean much, but that poll of the Electoral College itself. Now since Obama has repeated as the POTUS, (President of the United States) yes, he has to get gritty for the overtime work. Hey, there is nothing wrong doing extra work on the clock! 4 Years ago this week, I didn’t know what to say. It marked the first time that an African American President ever got the White House. Thought about my late grandparents, great-grandparents and those who were around when I was born are not around now. That victory wasn’t just for me, but it was for them also! Even to those who say “I thought I would never see the day….” But keep in mind, that was 4 years ago. And by the way, this was a first time that “Minority Matters” in terms of Minority, Women and Moderates tilted the jolt for the extra innings.

Now it’s 4 years later, and the repeat has happened. For this, I would expect the Obama Crew to be more upbeat on ideas to strengthen the middle class. And the poor. I would expect the crew to revive more with Healthcare, Jobs, Environmental concerns, equal pay, transportation innovation (no more of that boondoggle crap), FEMA, our troops, all community concerns and ideals.  EVEN with the black community, and the LGBT folks. And us as Citizens need to really pay attention with the noses to the grind stone of what needs to be addressed, alerted, and solved. Especially the voting stuff.

Speaking of the LGBT folks, I have two words: TAMMY BALDWIN! You’re D*mn Right! She beat, BEAT a former Wisconsin Governor, HHS Secretary, Republican Tommy Thompson. This reminds me of the August 14th Election when most folks in Milwaukee didn’t repeat with the same candidates in the black community. With all due respect, Tommy Thompson has experience in Wisconsin Politics. BUT like many others, that at times are not a factor.  The same with Barack Obama vs John McCain from 2008. Lots of folks thought that McCain would have been a better choice on experience. But……it went to Barack Obama as we know. And by the way, Congresswoman Gwen Moore, Wisconsin State Senator Lena Taylor also retained their seats.

So the path is clear.  Yes, I would say to the Romney folks in the words of Roland Martin, “Take your flags off your cars and make room on the couch!”  Per say. For a good reason. Yes, it might be difficult in second terms, but then again there might be positives also.

Just a side note. I know that the Republicans must be eating crow that all of the Voter Suppression  even Donald Trump’s “haterism” must gotten to the core of hate. All that jazz about destroying the legendary Electoral College isn’t going anywhere. Give it up haters!

What else: I believe that the so-called 2016 Obama movie will be a bust in sales. Note to the Republican fans who bought the movie, remember this. When you were defending George W. Bush for his re-election, there was movie that came out called “Fahrenheit 9/11”. The one that Michael Moore made and most of us believed that George W. Bush was hiding hidden truths about the reasons going to war in Iraq. Just a thought: We were mad as hell like you. Similarities. And the comment that Senator Mitch McConnell that the goal was to make Obama a one term President? Well, that went out the window so fast did it? Dude must be feeling salty of what he said. He ought to be. That’s what you get for being cocky. Like it or not! Oh, and those thinking about moving to Canada, or away just because Obama won, I feel sorry for them. Those who say that might end up being back here anyway. When Bush was in office, I didn’t like him, but I stayed in America and criticized the bad things that Bush did. Even going into Iraq, and “declaring” Mission Accomplished. Which it wasn’t.

I said this 4 years ago on the old MyFoxMilwaukee Blogs and I’m saying it here: Don’t like Obama? DON’T TALK ABOUT HIM! Period. He’s still the man.

Biden is still the man at VP.

The FLOTUS is still Michelle Obama.

Dr. Jill is Still Dr. Jill.

Sasha and Malia are still the first daughters.

Marian Robinson, The FLOTUS’ Mother is still the Grandmother in Chief.

And Bo is still the the first dog.

Also for the next four years: Get America working more with the ideals that the still 44th President wants to do.

Remember the ratio: 332 – 206 Enough Said.

Now comes Inauguration Day 2013.
