“By the way, we have to fix that.” Speaking about long voter lines — yes sir!
yes – good to hear
Yes indeed! CA has 36 million people but never experiences the long voter lines we see in places like Florida and Ohio. Why is that? Then there is the example of Oregon and Washington where voting is by mail. It’s really about time that many states modernized the process of voting. The lines in Florida looked like those in Iraq, Egypt and South Sudan, all the places that have recently discovered the importance of voting.
Nice clap for mittbot.
When is the speech, please?
I am thankful for our President, President Obama.
PBO being very gracious to Willard.
America’s Happy Warrior. The Best Vice President ever a man could ask for.
“Michelle, I have never loved you more…I have never been prouder to see the rest of America fall in love with you, too, as America’s First Lady.”
Well, that does it. I’m done. He’s just so good. Sigh……
To the best campaign team in the history of politics.
Yes indeed! Mr. Messina, Ms. Cutter, the entire OFA team, and all the OFA volunteers, deserve a great deal of thanks for a job well done. As the saying goes, you can tell the character of a person by the company he/she keeps. The fact that President Obama surrounded himself with these incredibly gifted and disciplined people tells me all I want to know about his leadership skills. You are so right AMK: this is “the best campaign team in the history of politics.” Just imagine all the tons of money poured into the efforts to defeat the President and he still prevailed. The Kochs, Adelson, Trump, and all those other billionaires and millionaires totally underestimated the discipline and organizational skills by the Obama team. Finally they found out that money can’t always buy love and respect.
This election was like giving birth, painful fight all the way but what a result. Beeeeeeeeeeetiful.
And he loves his VP – ignore the pundits – JoeB is a wonderful VP
That’s the truth! Based on what he said this morning when asked, this may not be his last campaign either (heard it on news segment of Stephanie Miller Show)
Love me some Joe B too!
The President loves his VP. He is not alone. We the people love the VP, Dr Biden his wife, and his entire family. VP Biden is authentic! What you see is what you get. But he also happens to be one the smartest and most accomplished politicians.
Thank you Chips and the entire TOD family for the Herculean task you have accomplished these four years! You have informed, educated and entertained us to a very fine degree. Thanks to all the twitter warriors such as BOB, Lisa, Tally, LL, AMK you guys rock! This is what they mean by democracy of the people, for the people and by the people.
CNN called VA for PBO!!
OMG, completely moved. What a wonderful open heart.
…for the best political team in the history of politics…. YES they are! Credit to them and thanks to them.

Pres. Obama won 71% of the Hispanic vote. Romney got 27% – which is less than what McCain got in 2008.— (@utaustinliberal) November 07, 2012
Ok all, I’m crashing. Turning off the light and falling asleep to PBO. See youse tomorrow.
Sleep tight LL. All is well in the world. PBO has it!
G’nite LL – Sleep WELL!!! See you back here tomorrow
Sweet dreams, beloved…
Climate change. There you go.
He has a new vision for the future and we are getting a preview of it now. He will show us what it is.
Yes we do.
Pres. Obama: "Whether you voted for the first time or waited in line for a very long time – by the way, we have to fix that."— (@utaustinliberal) November 07, 2012
I love that he acknowledged how effed up this system is. Remember, he voted early. Walked in, signed in and voted. He knows it can be simpler.
GIVE ME A DAMN BREAK!!
Team Romney was a hair away from the presidency, and their classy concession proves they too are winning tonight.— Zeke Miller (@ZekeJMiller) November 07, 2012
The President’s speaking.
I can’t post a tweet while the president is speaking?
Crap – they lost
WOW! RT @jbouie: Worth noting that Barack Obama is the first Democratic president to win reelection with 50+% of the vote since FDR.— (@utaustinliberal) November 07, 2012
Really! Just wow!!! I was not aware of that! I don’t believe I’ve heard that anywhere else. Great!
Yes Indeed, UT! You see people who take no time to study history forget to point out that both Harry Truman, and LBJ, though running for re-election, were practically running for the first time on their own. VP Truman became President in 1945 because FDR died in office. He run for election on his own in 1948 and almost lost. LBJ became President at the end of Nov., 1963, after JFK was assassinated. He run for election (or was it JFK re-election) on his own in 1964 and won a landslide victory. But then he dropped out in 1968 because of his unpopular war in Vietnam. Jimmy Carter was the next Democratic President, after LBJ, to win election, in 1976. He then lost re-election to Ronald Reagan in 1980.People forget that received almost 49% of the popular vote in the loosing effort. Personally, I think that if it hadn’t been for the Independent liberal John Anderson, who received more than 5% of the vote, Jimmy Carter would have won re-election. The Next Democratic President after Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, won his first Presidential election with slightly over 43% of the Popular vote. That’s because Independent candidate Ross Perot garnered 19% of the popular vote. Bill Clinton subsequently won his re-election with 49% of the popular vote. In other words, at no time did the 50+% of Americans vote for the now popular President Bill Clinton. Barack Obama won his first term with 53% of the popular vote, the highest vote received by a Democratic Presidential candidate since LBJ in 1964. If, after all the votes are counted, the President wins 50+% of the popular vote, he will indeed be the first Democratic President, since FDR, to win re-election with the majority of the popular votes. By the way right wingers and their pundits enablers wish to bring up the issue of popular votes, all we need to do is remind them that George W. Bush, the looser of the popular vote to VP Gore by more than half a million, became the President while Al Gore wen’t home.
this is greatness.. when he talks to us about our power, who we are he is opening a door that can never be shut on us again unless we allow it to be.
The role of citizen does not end with your vote! Yes…..being a good citizen is something we need to re-learn. He knows this and will encourage all of us to become contributing citizens. Citizen is a rich word.
Pres. Obama: "Whether I earned your vote or not, I have listened to you. I have learned from you. And you’ve made me a better president."— (@utaustinliberal) November 07, 2012
PV lead over 700 K and the west is still counting. Only 30% (CA) to 60% counted so far.
This man we elected twice is BEYOND EXCEPTIONAL!!
New post: http://theobamadiary.com/2012/11/07/the-most-perfect-of-days/

Joey! Joey! Joey!
OMG, we are witnessing greatness!!!! I am a blubering fool.
Math proved Politico to be BS as usual.
