After a long and expensive election campaign any democracy has ever seen, President Barack Obama was re-elected, by a narrower margin than he received four years ago.
President Obama won re-election with unemployment at 7.9% – the highest any re-election has faced since Franklin D Roosevelt.
And no incumbent since Roosevelt has held office amidst such a bad economy – not Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter or George Bush Sr.
The president will again face a Republican House of Representatives, though he will have a few more Democratic senators to help him with his presidential goals.
I wonder if Republicans will be more concerned with their own losses and steer toward a more traditional, and co-operative position in Congress?
I’m not sure but I am happy and grateful Obama is in office again and l look forward to getting more college refund checks for the next four years.
A N.J., man who didn’t think he would survive Sandy’s storm surge, broke into a stranger’s house and left a farewell note asking her to “tell my Dad I love him.”
I find that an incredible cry for help.
The letter writer, identified only as Mike, was blessed reunite with his father.
Christine Treglia, found the mysterious note when she returned home, which she had evacuated before the storm:
Mikes note said,” Whoever reads this I’m dying, I’m 28 years old my name is Mike I had to break in your house, I took blankets off the couch I have hypothermia, I didn’t take anything A wave came through my house and down the block. I don’t think I’m going to make it, the water outside is 10ft deep at least. There’s no rescue.
Tell my dad I love him and I tried getting out. His number is ————– his name is Tony. I hope u can read this I’m in the dark. I took a black jacket too. Goodbye. God all mighty help me.
Christine Treglia said, “This was my house that Mike found refuge in. We found this letter and 2 others in our home along with “help me” signs posted to our windows. We called immediately and were so relieved that Mike was safe and made his way home.”
Now if this isn’t an amazing story I don’t know what is. I say God works in amazing ways and we never know what to expect from him.
Now we all know dinero plays a major role in elections period. Each month, political analysts track fundraising and spending by the political parties, the campaigns and the political action committees as well participate in knowing were precious donations are being used and kept.
Millions of dollars come from conglomerate names. Most of the times we know who these people are they and sometimes we don’t, thus far one of Mitt Romney pro-PACs, Restore Our Future, has intertwined with many of our nation’s billionaires. President Barack Obama pro PACs, Priorities USA Action, have inspired a lot of support from Hollywood celebrities.
I wonder what I have to do to get some donations around here, I ‘m a college student that has 3 kids and my Jeep just broke down and I’m deeply in debt from loans I took out in 2005 for crying out loud and I can make a change once I get my degree. Vote Steffawn Mundy!!!!!!
Good evening I think this is phenomenon of Felix Baumgartner breaking the new skydiving record
Felix Baumgartner stepped out of the space capsule which at the time of the jump was an astonishing 128,100 feet, or 24.26 miles above earth, about three times the cruising altitude of jetliners. The skydiver plummeted for 4:20 seconds. Baumgartner said” the jump felt like an eternity, because my faceplate was fogging up.” On the way down Baumgartner jumped through harsh atmospheric conditions at whirling speed.
Baumgartner was also thrown into a dangerous tumble shortly after exiting his balloon. “It felt like a flat spin,” said Baumgartner. “I had a lot of pressure in my head, but I felt I could regain control so we could go after the sound barrier.”
I always wanted to sky jump period, I hope one day to have an opportunity or experience what Baumgartner experienced for his astonishing 128,000 feet jump in the atmosphere. All though most skydivers jump 2 to 4 miles from the sky, I believe just jumping out the sky will be a heart racing experience anyhow.
As we all know the presidential debate happened on the October 3rd 2012, according to The Labor Department. The U.S. unemployment rate fell to 7.8 percent last month, dropping below 8 percent for the first time in nearly four years that Obama has been in office. The Labor Department said,” Employer’s added 114,000 jobs in September.” Not to mention the economy creating 86,000 more jobs in July and August. So why shouldn’t Barack be our president again?
As you can see the job market has been improving, slowly but surley. Jobs have been added for 24 straight months. There are now 325,000 more jobs available since Obama took office. I’m sorry folks I just can’t see Romney in office, Romney could care less about the middle class. Rather it pertains to education or simply social programs that all us middle class citizens’ need Romney only cares about the rich and shipping jobs overseas.
Obama may have lost the debate battle, but the war is far from Obama winning office.
Am I the only one who is happy to see the veteran referees that are back in the game? After the overtime loss that Green bay suffered in Seattle. The late helmet to helmet hit Matt Schaub the quarter back of the Houston Texans received that could have ended his career. I believe the league and the players are and were fed up with the poor officiating. I myself believe could have done a better job officiating then the replacement referees, and I never officiated in my life.
Rodger Goodell owes the fans, players and the league this monumental justice that has so been longed for I hope this disgrace never happens again, Rodger should be a shame of himself, but I guess if it’s your rules and your house no one can say anything to you if you own and bring home the bacon huh?
I wonder who will win the presidential election; both candidates have great views on turning our country and economy around. Personally I still like Obama who looks out for the lower classman with initiating the college refund check of 2, 800 for us college students who work and are working hard to obtain our college degrees. I feel Romney only cares about the upper class, giving the notion that we lower class individual aren’t worthy of government funding to help us to become better citizens and be successful in our economy, not to mention Romney wants do undo everything Obama has created to help better our nation.
