As soon as Barack Obama was reelected President to the next four year term of office, his victory was announced on @BarackObama’s Twitter: “This happened because of you. Thank you.” It will be recalled, that this twitter account is run by Obama 2012 campaign staff and tweets from the President are signed –bo.
So two more tweets followed his win: “We’re all in this together. That’s how we campaigned, and that’s who we are. Thank you. –bo” and “Four more years. pic.twitter.com/bAJE6Vom”. The latter one, containing a picture of Obama hugging his wife Michelle, gathered hundreds of thousands of retweets immediately.
According to Twitter Government (@gov), it became Obama’s most retweeted post ever. We would remind you, that Barack Obama announced his previous win in 2008 with the following tweet: “We just made history. All of this happened because your time talent and passion. All of this happened because of you. Thanks”.
However, Obama has still to cope with the problems that he promised to solve in his 2008 election speech, those issues, that were haunting him during his first office.
It will be recalled that Barack Obama commenced the duties of U.S. President in 2009 when the countrys economy was staggering from the financial crisis – the worst slump since the Great Depression (1929 – 1933). And now he will persist with fostering sustainable growth and recover from this downswing.
Nevertheless with 435 representatives in the House the Republican Party is still the majority, which means that in questions of the fiscal cliff and on some other points Congress will continue to function under a deep partisan divide.
Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney made a stirring speech addressed to his disappointed adherents at the Boston convention center. Romney, a 65-year-old former governor of Massachussetts, said to the people – “This is a time of great challenge for our nation. I pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation.”
As regards Barack Obama, he announced the hopes to meet Romney in the nearest future in order to talk over the challenges ahead.
The election campaign was really a bitter and expensive competition, Reuters reports. Obama defeated Republican nominee Mitt Romney in Tuesday’s vote, despite the fact that some voters impeached his managing of U.S. economy.
During the nationwide popular vote both candidates were going leg in leg. Finally, Obama won 50 percent of vote, will Romney got 49 percent. As provided by the state-to state electoral system that decides the White House, Barack Obama, the first American black President, scored a clear win over Romney.
On Wednesday’s morning in his acceptance speech made before a crowd of strong supporters in Chicago the 51-year-old President said the following – “You voted for action, not politics as usual”.
They say, international leaders didn’t stay aside and extended their congratulations on the re-election. Meanwhile Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister, known for his touchy relations with the U.S. ruling top, stressed that he is going to work with Obama “to ensure the interests that are vital for the security of Israel’s citizens”. British Prime Minister David Cameron drew attention to the UK’s and USA’s cooperation on solving the Syrian crisis.
