Four More Years ......................

Despite the odds of his record Obama won a Second term. 

 Could it be that by a slight chance game Obama wins a second term ?
One Night I was flipping the channels on my remote . As I was surfing , changing channels . I for a brief second in time & how it came about in some galactic intermission moment on one of those government channels saw a minute glimpse of the future.............................There was ole President Obama speaking to the league of women voters . On the bottom of my TV caption read 2014 . Now you tell me how this could of happened ? In some Twilight Zone kinda way there it was Obama speaking and it's the year 2014 . This information would un-nerve every Tea Party member, and most of all the GOP. What I am saying could be real . If true , what a joke it would be in COSMIC STANDARDS . Obama won the 2012 reelection. How could this have happened ?   From my Blog  posting  " 2012 election PREDICTION."  9/26/11 .

Well I was last night watching FOX NEWS waiting for the numbers to come in , as close to 8 :00 p.m. PST Obama had gathered over 230 or so delegates . Every election night has at least one standout television moment,  and  -- with all due respect to John King and his magical fingertips -- the clear winner Tuesday was Republican strategist Karl Rove, who staged a civil war on the air after Fox News called Ohio -- and therefore the entire election -- for President ObamaTechnically speaking, it was Chris Wallace who fired the first shot. Shortly after Fox projected Obama as the winner, Wallace explained that he had received an email from the Romney campaign contesting the network’s decision.   Karl Rove made a fool of himself on television .  Rove wasn’t willing to concede, either, saying it was premature to call the race, even though most of the remaining votes were from Ohio's Democratic-leaning Cuyahoga County. After several minutes of protest, he warned,  “I’d be very cautious about intruding into the process.” The entire panel on FOX news looked as if  they were about to have a nervous breakdown . Wallace was left nearly speechless by Rove’s obstinacy. “Well, folks,” he said, laughing nervously. “Maybe not so fast.” That’s when Megyn Kelly stepped in -- or, to be more precise, stepped out -- leaving the Fox News studio and making the long walk through a labyrinth of offices to the ”Decision Desk,” a.k.a. the conference room full of number crunchers who make projections for the network.   Sadly to say to my Republican friends . Obama won . After the FOX news people falling apart there was one logical person who warned them that Mitt Romney may not win altogether . It was Bill O'Reilly. Mr. O'Reilly warned his viewers in his nightly tacking points memo the consequence of "making predictions". I am guilty my self of making predictions . I wanted Gov. Romney to win , and I wrote and told my friends that the race was close . Yes it was close . Romney won the popular vote , he started ahead of Obama with electoral votes . Regardless the electoral  map shows that 90 % of the country is a red State . With the exception of my state California and Ohio there are vary few blue states in the United States , each of the blue states have high electoral numbers. 

Our Nation at a glance , More red than blue .
Why did Obama win?
It wont end there folks . Obama won his second term . The explanations ?  Perhaps the easy explanation is that two hurricanes and two betrayals by Chris Christie killed Mitt Romney's chances.The first hurricane was Isaac, the one that skirted Tampa in late August during the Republican convention. That one seriously disrupted the official schedule. GOP star Marco Rubio — who gave the best speech of the convention — was bumped off prime-time TV coverage, and so was the video biography "introducing" Mitt to the nation. Aging actor Clint Eastwood was scrambled into the schedule to offer a funny but often incoherent monologue with an empty chair. He stole Mitt's show. And prime-time keynoter Chris Christie barely mentioned the nominee or Obama in a speech that sounded like the New Jersey governor was pumping his re-election.
The ground lost in Tampa wasn't regained until the first debate in Denver, when Romney shined. It was the first, best, and last time he would really sparkle.As a result of the debates, by late October polls showed that Romney was finally beginning to see a surge.Then the second hurricane, Sandy, struck on Oct. 29. The campaign went into “freeze” mode while Obama swung into “commander in chief” mode. Romney's surge was suddenly frozen too.The reason for this is the demographics have changed in the US. It is more of an entitlement society now than ever, and that is what Democrats want. Give away record amounts to Welfare recipients, food stamp recipients and even student loan recipients and you will win their votes forever. The Republicans no longer have a chance to win and probably won't for a long long time.

Four More years with Obama. 
After $6 billion, two dozen presidential primary election days, a pair of national conventions, four general election debates, hundreds of Congressional contests and more television advertisements than anyone would ever want to watch, the two major political parties in America essentially fought to a standstill.  The Stock Market reacted , U.S. investors dumped stocks Wednesday and turned their focus to a world of problems - tax increases and spending cuts that could stall the nation's economic recovery and a deepening recession in Europe.The Dow Jones industrial average plummeted as much as 369 points, or 2.6 percent, in the first two hours of trading. The average was on track for its worst decline in a year. At 10:30 a.m. PDT, stocks were down 264 points.The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell as much as 40 points, or 2.8 percent. With this Mr. Obama has a vary hard job in regards to his relation with Congress . Can he get is act together to prevent the "fiscal Cliff  " ? The balance of power hasn't literally shifted, but a sitting president being re-elected with 300+ electoral votes in this economic climate is not to be ignored. The issue that screams for first-100-days attention is immigration reform. Any sensible Republican can tell you that the Latino vote is a demographic time bomb for the GOP. If Republicans don't moderate their politics on immigration issues, they'll keep a toehold on control of the House of Reps but won't make inroads in the electoral college for decades to come. The marriage of country club Republicans with an aging rural voting constituency is a loser for the foreseeable future. Obama and the Congress has to sit down this new year and get the country working by  putting aside party politics . But there were strong indications that the first two years of Obama’s second term would resemble the final two years of his first term – that is with a Republican-held House and nominally Democratic Senate stalemated over major tax and spending issues, as the balance of power in Congress remained unchanged after Election Day.  The specter of gridlock appeared quickly as Obama prepared to confront the immediate task in addressing the series of automatic tax hikes and spending cuts – the so-called “fiscal cliff” – set to spring into place at the end of this year. Obama must put himself out there and get to know the Republicans in Congress and win their trust and respect. Obama needs to get the he11 out of the White House and over to the Capitol just like Reagan did despite the hatred he was first greeted with when he came into office. We need "Obama Republicans" just like the GOP had "Reagan Democrats".
