A Salute to President Barack Obama
I want to be one of the first to congratulate President Barack Obama for his overwhelming victory over Republican challenger Mitt Romney. At first, I was a little nervous seeing all of those states turning red at the beginning of election night, but then the states started turning blue and oh boy, what a night! It was just magical. For those who worked so hard to get the president re-elected, the night must have been wonderful.
I pray for the safety of the president and his family. There are those who don't feel that the democratic process has worked, because it didn't work the way they wanted. President Obama is the president for all the people as the vote shows, overwhelmingly electoral and beating Romney in the popular vote. The president has worked very hard to bring America back from near collapse, and he will continue to do what is right for this country.
President Obama is a great American, and I know he will leave a lasting legacy for all Americans to look upon with a sense of pride and admiration. My prayers are with you, Mr. President, and may God bless you always.

President Obama Wins Four More Years!
If anyone ever doubted that Barack Hussein Obama was pre-ordained to be president of the United States for four more years, one has only to look at the outcome of last Tuesday's election results.
The people have spoken. Even though the popular vote was nearly the same for both candidates, Mr. Obama rose triumphantly to the top of the electoral vote.
Nevertheless, the people have spoken. This country, with its heads-in-the clouds millionaires and its corporate greed and dishonesty, needs a president whose feet are on the ground, and one who can relate to the common man.
Citizens who are struggling to survive in this country see hope in this man whose brown skin and family values mirror their own.
Obviously, his destined achievements could not be completed in one term, and might not be completed in two, but at least we have given him a chance to continue to push for what is right. That's what the people want, and the people have spoken.
