It’s Obama, b-tch!
The race is over, and Barack Obama just grabbed four swing states, which basically means he was re-elected President! OBAMA FOR THE PREEZY OF THE UNITED STEEZY!
However, it should be noted that Mitt Romney put up a very good fight.
The two candidates were essentially neck and neck for the popular vote. Mitt Romney actually has 50% of the popular vote and Obama has just 49%, but it’s the Electoral College votes that matter.
Obama has 274 electoral votes and Romney only had 201. The tipping point was 270 electoral votes, whoever got to 270 electoral votes first wins! The night isn’t over, but Obama reached that 270 mark.
Congratulations to the President on another four years in the White House.
For Democrats it’s a victory and a reason to tweet #Forward (Obama’s 2012 slogan, in case you missed it.) For Republicans, it’s back to the drawing board.
Obama will be sworn into office privately at noon on Jan. 20, 2013, in Washington D.C.
