Obama reelected US president

WASHINGTON- US President Barack Obama swept to re-election Tuesday, creating history again by defying the undertow of a slow economic recovery and high unemployment to beat Republican foe Mitt Romney.

Obama became only the second Democrat to win a second four-year White House term since World War II, when television networks projected he would win the bellwether state of Ohio where he had staged a pitched battle with Romney.

“This happened because of you. Thank you,” Obama tweeted to his 22 million followers on Twitter as a flurry of states, including Iowa, which nurtured his unlikely White House dreams suddenly tipped into his column.

With a clutch of swing states, including Florida and Virginia still to be declared, Obama already had 275 electoral votes, more than the 270 needed for the White House and looked set for a comfortable victory.

There was a sudden explosion of jubilation at Obama’s Chicago victory party as the first African American president, who was elected on a wave of hope and euphoria four years ago, booked another four years in the White House.

Romney’s aides had predicted that a late Romney wave would sweep Obama from office after a single term haunted by a sluggish recovery from the worst economic crisis since the 1930s Great Depression and high unemployment.

But a huge cheer rang out at Obama headquarters when television networks projected Obama would retain Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral votes, and the party grew wilder as they called Wisconsin and Michigan.

The mood at Romney headquarters in Boston however had grown subdued throughout the evening as partisans stared at their smart phones.

Disappointed Republicans were seen leaving what had been billed as a celebration of Romney’s expected triumph in central Washington.

Defeats in New Hampshire, where Romney has a summer home and Wisconsin, the home of Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan were especially sickening for Republicans.

Early signs were that the election, while a building triumph for Obama would do little to ease the deep polarization afflicting US politics, as Republicans racked up huge margins in safe states, though struggled in battlegrounds.

Exit polls appeared to vindicate the vision of the race offered by Obama’s campaign, when top aides predicted that Obama’s armies of African American, Latinos and young voters would come out in droves.

Polls also showed that though only 39 percent of people believed that the economy was improving, around half of Americans blamed President George W. Bush for the tenuous situation, and not Obama.

The president, who made history by becoming America’s first black president after a euphoric victory, carved a new precedent on Tuesday by defying the portents of a hurting economy to win a second term.

He awaited his fate in his hometown of Chicago, while Romney, a multi-millionaire former investment manager and Massachusetts governor was laying low in a hotel in Boston awaiting results.

As expected, television networks projected that Republicans would win the House of Representatives.

Democrats clung onto the Senate, and retained a seat in Missouri, where Senator Claire McCaskill fended off a challenge by Representative Todd Akin, whose remarks about rape and abortion sparked national outrage.

Both presidential candidates had earlier marked time while voters dictated their fates.

Romney appeared caught up in the emotion of seeing his name on the ballot for President of the United States and also saw an omen in a huge crowd that showed up at a multi-story parking lot to see his plane land at Pittsburgh airport.

“Intellectually I felt that we’re going to win this and I’ve felt that for some time,” Romney told reporters on his plane.

“But emotionally, just getting off the plane and seeing those people standing there… I not only think we’re going to win intellectually but I feel it as well.”

While Romney penned his victory speech, Obama took part in his election day tradition of playing a game of pick-up basketball with friends, including Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen, after visiting a campaign office near his Chicago home.

The president, who like a third of Americans voted before election day, congratulated Romney on “a spirited campaign” despite their frequently hot tempered exchanges.

“I know that his supporters are just as engaged and just as enthusiastic and working just as hard today. We feel confident we’ve got the votes to win, that it’s going to depend ultimately on whether those votes turn out,” he said.

“I think anybody who’s running for office would be lying if they say that there’s not some butterflies before the polls come in because anything can happen,” the president added later in a radio interview.

CBS News, quoting early exit polls, said 39 percent of people approached after they had voted said the economy, the key issue, was improving, while 31 percent said it was worse and 28 saw it as staying the same.

Voters were also choosing a third of the Democratic-led Senate and the entire Republican-run House of Representatives. But, with neither chamber expected to change hands, the current political gridlock will likely continue.

The US presidential election is not directly decided by the popular vote, but requires candidates to pile up a majority — 270 — of 538 electoral votes awarded state-by-state on the basis of population.

A candidate can therefore win the nationwide popular vote and still be deprived of the presidency by falling short in the Electoral College.

The election went ahead in New Jersey with thousands of people without power, and large areas devastated by superstorm Sandy which roared ashore last week killing more than 100 people.

Adora Agim, an immigrant from Nigeria, said the chaos shouldn’t stop voting. “I have lived in a Third World country where your vote does not matter. It’s nice to be somewhere where it matters,” she said, in Hoboken, New Jersey.

The central message of Obama’s campaign has been that he saved America from a second Great Depression after the economy was on the brink of collapse when he took over from Republican president George W. Bush in 2009.

He claims credit for ending the war in Iraq, saving the US auto industry, killing Osama bin Laden, offering almost every American health insurance, and passing the most sweeping Wall Street reform in decades.

Romney sought to mine frustration with the slow pace of the economic recovery and argued that the president was out of ideas and has no clue how to create jobs, with unemployment at 7.9 percent and millions out of work. AFP

  • julieboy

    Really a close fight,seems the US is split down the middle 5050 overall..So Pres.Obama has to do a hell of a job to prove he deserves a second term.Anyway the electoral college system is really something that i dont really understand fully.The popular vote is so close almost a tie,the strategy is to concentrate on states with big electoral votes to win the election.Congrats to the Americans,they have reelected Pres. Obama,I wish him well.

  • lucidlynx

    to all you romney supporters! romney doesn’t have an economic plan, period.
    obama inherited an economy in shambles and still managed to keep it going. republican policies will just bring hardships to the middle-class and benefit the few rich folks like him. the middle-class is the backbone of America, in case you don’t know.

    • ThudOthwacker

      LOL It was the democrats the reason why they have a mortgage crisis. And Obama bailed out the companies the made money out of the sub prime mortgage scheme. 

      • Karabukov

        The Republicans deregulatory policies, nurtured by Alan Greenspan paved the way for the subprime mortgage mess that went haywire in the time of George W. Bush.

      • tuldok

        DICK CHENEY was the real president…:)  He should be tried by the International Court in The Hague –   Ever seen Dick Cheney travel outside US? 

      • ThudOthwacker

        You are very wrong. It was Clinton who expand the mortgage loans to low and moderate income borrowers. Greenspan and Bush warned the impending crisis as early as 2002 and 2003 respectively. McCain filed a bill to reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It didn’t passed the floor. Back then both houses of congress are Democrats majority. (D)Cong. Barney Frank block all efforts of the Republican to reform existing GSE(government-sponsored enterprise) regulatory structure. Why? Majority of the subprime borrowers are democrats card holders that’s why. 

    • LuwigVonMises

      and obama had a plan? both are practically the same, they both agree pretty much in everything. and by the way there is no such thing as a planned economy.

  • Karabukov

    “The central message of Obama’s campaign has been that he saved America from a second Great Depression after the economy was on the brink of collapse when he took over from Republican president George W. Bush in 2009.

    He claims credit for ending the war in Iraq, saving the US auto industry, killing Osama bin Laden, offering almost every American health insurance, and passing the most sweeping Wall Street reform in decades.”

    There you have it, the reasons Obama won (or will win if you still can’t believe the projections).

    • tuldok

      Also helping save the Auto Industry – that’s why he can win Ohio (although they already called Ohio for Obama – there are a few challenges being talked about, i.e. anomalies, and thousands of provisional ballots yet to be counted in the coming days)…

      there is also the fear of a right leaning Supreme Court if Romney wins – 3 justices will be appointed within 4 years.

      But most of all,  Romney just flip-flops or lies in a lot of things.  Plus the threat on Medicare… etc etc etc

  • Hey_Dudes

    Truly a sad day for America the old America where values and truthfulness are still honored.  Today, with this win, more taxes, more gimmmmmess…..gimmmmmmess… more taxes free this free that and all illegals welcome no question ask.  Border guards who try ultimately gets killed but that’s alright.  Ambassador gets killed and the US president claims it is not terrorism.  SAD SAD day for America.  Those who voted for the same incompetent prepare yourself for more $4.83@gallon gasoline perhaps more.  You blew it!

      • juantamad99

        Doubt if you know what you’re talking about Obamacre. For the first time a health reform to stop the never ending profit making of health business  Profits will be limited and health insurers has to comply that for every dollar paid for premiums 85 cents should be spent to actual cost, profits are limited. As a matter of facts lots of rebates by health insurers are being issued due to this alone. You can get an insurance without having to worry about your pre-condition situation. You didn’t have to go bankrupt if you get sick.
        About time people has to know this fact, not just blaberrings  of some that are mostly being paid by Insurance business.

      • Yxon

        what i know about Obamacare is its imposed implementation even against the christian beliefs of its citizen and of the religious institution. this could decrease the valuing for life and morality. I would not discuss on the other aspects of the bill as it is not ours to discuss here.

      • juantamad99

        You are not alone about this misconception about Obamacare. The apprehension you mentioned is precisely why the separation of state and church should apply. Or else you’ll wind up so many version of a particular law to suit all religion. Never the less that is not the issue here. Just an example to make my point clear, concerns about contraception and family planning. It is required by law to be covered by the insurer no matter that particular insurer is being subscribe by particular religion or not. Now if you’re a catholic and because it is against your religion that you don’t want that program, you can ignore it and nobody is forcing you to take it. It’s just there just in case others who wants to avail for it can have it. It’s as simple as that.

      • Yxon

        it not that simple as you had said.
        anyway, it’s their society. no need to argue here.

    I am so disappointed with the outcome. I would have wanted Mitt to win.

    Although I am not an American, the leadership of the US has a crucial role in the overall economic welfare of the world. One false move in the States could send shockwaves reverberating throughout the rest of the globe. 

    Yes it is also good that there would be continuities in Obama’s programs, provided majority of them are good. But since he sat at the white house, all he did was literally sat. I mean, for the last several years, the US had been so laid back in its demeanor and policies that it has plunged the country into the worst economic and political debacle in decades. Someone has to take the rein and institute aggressive reforms.

    Of course, the economic forces are something the government cannot entirely control. But as the president, one has a significant influence over the policies that could turn around many faulty moves.

    We don’t know what Mitt is capable of but we are adequately acquainted with what Obama is not capable of. The only danger in trying something new is that we may not know what the outcome is. The real danger is when we try to keep something old even though we know that it does not do anything to us.

    The only foe of success is not actually failure but deliberate stagnation.

      What literally sitting around are you talking about? The guy has lots of progressive programs and policies to help America and middle class Americans, but the obstructionist and bitter Republicans made it their party platform to undermine the presidency from every direction and every opportunity they could get. The very first day the President assumed office in 2008, Mitch McConnel (R-Kentucky – the Senate Minority Leader) said “our number one priority is making sure president Obama’s a one-term president”. Well..he is flat out wrong and has to eat his words now!!

    • juantamad99

      I’ll let you pass on you’re comment since you’re not an American, I’m also assuming you don’t leave there. Obama inherited the worst recession ever in American history, some say comparable , even worst than the great depression in the 20’s & 30’s. Lots of fixing the do and the slow phase was aggravated more by the Republicans who won’t even cooperate much less negotiate/compromise to alarming issues, since their number one target from day one is for Obama not having a second term. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure the consequences of their action. They would literally want American public to suffer under Obama and really don’t want America to recover under his watch to meet their objective. Whenever Obama has proposals to be applied and goes to congress for approval, Republicans just shot it down outright without giving any alternatives since they really have none, And that my friend causes the stagnation you are talking.
      About Mitt promising heaven if elected. He’s known to flip-flop on issues for convenience. And that’s why people don’t trust him.

Faster than i could cook my sinigang na bagoy and eat my dinner.    I voted at 5:30 pm just right after work,  Then I prepared/cooked my dinner after that.  Obama was called at 8:18 pm.  California with 55 electoral votes, closed at  7 pm, and with 16% of the votes counted, and Obama leading 66%-34%,  they called it for Obama that quickly.  I guess, statistics dont lie.  As of this posting, only less than 100 votes separating the two candidates in 70+% of the popular vote counted.  But Obama has a convincing win in terms of the Electoral Votes.

      I wanted to vote for Roseann Barr of the Peace party or something, but last time she belted the National Anthem at the Superbowl in San Diego, she sucked!!!!

      In my opinion, the socialist policy of Obama re-elected him, winning for example California, home of foreign immigrants.  The fact that he won New York, the business state so to speak, would also imply that he got the approval fo business minded voters.  It seems that Americans continue to prove that there is no more racial divide in the US.

        Obama is neither a black person nor a member of the “socially disadvantage” class. His mother was white and his father was Kenyan. He was brought up in Hawaii and not in a place like the “suburbs” of Harlem. He is well educated, articulate and has an IQ well above yours.

    The US Presidential election is over in no time at all. Amazing! And there is no blood spilled unlike the Philippine election. No vote buying, no charges of cheating, no major intimidation, physical or otherwise and very civil and peaceful. About the Philippine election? It is still very primitive! It is still 200 years or more behind! Amazing! As for Mr. Obama winning his 2nd term, I can truly say that I am happy for all American seniors, the women’s right to make their own decision and no unnecessary war to fight! I can really sleep good tonight! Amazing! Good night to everyone!

    • tuldok

      bumoto ako kabayan mga 5:30 after work, 8:18 pm, na call na ang electoral votes for Obama.  At that time, 16% pa lang ang reported votes from California as the polls just closed, but it was 66%-34% in favor of Obama on that 16% reported and they already called Calif for Obama!!    I guess that is the beauty and power of statistics…

      nga pala, nawawala yung tangaCovina, este, taga-covina ..yung malakas mag alaska ng mga maka Obama dito dahil prediction nya, Robme will win California…

      • tra6Gpeche

        Pwede naman natin purihin ang electoral system ng US ng hindi na kinakailangan pang maging negatibo tayo para sa ating mahal na Pilipinas. Kaya nga patuloy na nagsisikap at nagtutulungan ang ating gobyerno, mga pribadong kumpanya, mga NGO’s, at ng ating mga mamayan upang magkaroon ng progresibong pagbabago ang ating sistema. At ang pinaka mahalaga sa lahat, ang magkaroon tayo ng mga “Edukadong Mamboboto” na kung saan may kakayahan na tayong iwanan ang mga trapo at maghalal ng mga karapatdapat na mga opisyal.

        Ang lahat ng gusto mong mawala sa ating bansa ay isang mahabang labanan at walang nakakaalam kung kailan ito matatapos. Pero ang mahalaga ay patuloy na nagsisikap ang bawat isa sa atin upang matangal na natin ang mga ito.

      • tra6Gpeche

        Kabayan, nauunawaan ko ang iyong sinasabi at nasa panig mo ako. Hindi maiaalis sa akin ang hindi punahin ang mga bagay na sa aking pananaw ay hindi tama. Nuong ako ay nag-aaral pa sa Lyceum of the Philippines, 1961, konti lang ang mga squatters, nasa paligid ng Intramuros. Wala nuong CCTV, walang deadly riding in tandem, walang gasinong humahablot ng gamit ng tao, konti pa lang ang holdup, wala pang carnapping, wala pang kidnapping at wala pang political dynasty. Nuon ay maninipis pa ang balat ng mga pulitiko at ang mga military ay professional at apolitical at walang nasasangkot sa korupsyon (corruption) at di gaanong maraming tao (Pilipino). Sa madalit sabi, sa halip na bumuti ay lalo ng lumalala ang suliranin o problema ng mga Pilipino. Hindi pa rin naaalis ang private army at gaya ng sinabi ko ay ang patayan, dayaan at kung ano pang masama pag may eleksyon. Hindi mo masisisi ako kung lalong naghihinagpis ang aking kalooban. Isa pa, sobra ang putik ng mga ilog lalo na ang Pasig River na nuong unang panahon ay kulay asul. Nagtrabaho ako sa BIR ng sampung taon. Dahil sa hindi ko gusto ang lagayan, napilitan akong umalis kahit napakasarap mamuhay sa sariling bayan. Kung hindi ako nakaalis, isa na rin akong corrupt dahil sa tukso na sa pakiwari ko ay hindi ko maiiwasan. Pag tumatanda ang tao, nagiging makapal ang balat at magsasamantala upang yumaman. Tingnan mo ang mga pulitiko, pag bata pa, malinis ang budhi at pagtanda ay nawawala ang hiya sa sarili. Anyway, mabuti nga ay may disqus at nasasabi ko ang aking hinaing. May kasabihan kami sa Batangan: Lumalaon ay bumubuti, sumasama kaysa rati. Salamat sa iyo kabayan. Sana ay isa ka sa mga makakagamot ng kasalukuyang malaking suliranin ng mga Pilipino sa Pilipinas. Good luck ang take care, kabayan!

    As far as I am concerned, the protagonists in this election are non-issue. It is about about how democracy works in the US. 
    Compare US election in Philippine election, we are hundred years behind in terms of maturity.Sure, they throw mud at each other during the campaign but will congratulate the winner hours after the results are announced.
    In the Philippines, there are only 3 candidates, 1 is the cheater, the other is the cheated and the third is the nuisance. And each one is a winner, no loser. Most importantly, no news of election-related violations are reported, before, during and after the election.
    In the Philippines, with still a year a to go before the election day, hundreds of supporters are hurt and/or killed, candidates are ambushed, or asked to be disqualified for being under-age, of for lack of residency, for carrying ugly face. Example, convoy of supporters and journalists were massacred on the way to comelec and the suspected perpetrators were top politicians supported by the president.
    We have so much to learn from US election processes.
    In the meantime, election in US is over and it is back to normal.

      There was a joke about Marcos, Gorvachev and Reagan – who were in a plane that is about to crash and had only one parachute to save one life.  Gorvachev yellled to get the parachute and claimed that he is the leader of the biggest communist country in the world.  Reagan disagreed and grabbed the parachute from Gorbachev saying he should have it as he is the leader of the greatest democracy in the world.  Enter the dragon Marcos – who screamed “no, no,, no!”   Let’s do a votation on this.   So he gave the two presidents a ballot and a pen to vote.  He has one too.   After the voting,  Marcos did the counting and he won the parachute with the score 3-2!

    If you think there is gridlock in the Philippines well get a load of this.  They re-elected someone based on race, the house is deeply in the republican control while the senate still in Harry Reid control.  This election have but managed to create the biggest gridlock ever in the USA election ever. It does not auger well since there is no incentive to do anything different from what this administration has done in the it’s first term.  Over here in northern california, gasoline is now $4.83 per gallon and with the sales tax petition appearing to be winning, we will have the highest sales tax in the whole USA at 10.5%.  Welcome all you illegals you can call America your home anytime you want to get in.

    The US election process went well and orderly but that is not because of either Obama or Romney, it is their established system already.  In as much as Americans are hesitant to vote for Obama because he can’t paint a better future for the US for his next term, Romney did not present a better option.  Anyway, what do we really expect in this new term of Obama?  It’s wait and see and I will leave it that way.  Of course I am always optimistic.

    Meanwhile we have our own election in May 2013, and unlike in the US we don’t have system.  You can’t call it a system if it’s in disarray and dysfunctional because even the Philippine election became the source of corruption, vote buying, malversation of fund that is supposed to buy the equipment, etc.,

    In the coming election let us all be vigilant and use the technology, our gadgets and the social media.  Bring your phones with video recorder and watch out for any election irregularity, even during the campaigns, all those that you mentioned below.  Post it in youtube, FB, etc., and let us all together fix our own election.  We can all be remorseful comparing our election with that of the US but we can’t change that unless we, ourselves help in eradicating it.  Please remember this come May 2013. 

    Had anybody recorded the encounter of Ms. Tacazon with Mr. Enrile, the whole nation would already know what will happen with Enrile in May 2013 depending on the veracity of the reports.

      Great speech.  Even called Mitt Romney’s parents by their first names and applauded their service to the country.  Love that line when he said the long lines at the polling booths and (sic) similar chaotic problems on election day – should be fixed.

        Isa ka ba sa pumila ng matagal?

      • tuldok

        Hindi naman.  Mga 5 minutes lang.  Mga 20 tao lamang nasa line. I voted after work at around 5:30 pm.  Booth is open till 7 pm.  One mile away lamang sa tirahan ko ang booth (inside the city hall).  I could have voted by mail but I didnt.   What I want the govt to fix are the voting problems that always happen in the states of Ohio and Florida (missing names, disenfranchised voters, some people being blocked off voting precincts, faulty machines, faulty ballots (some booths run out of ballots coz of a big turn-out so they have to make do with xerox copies and manually count them)

      • tuldok

        Other problems that occur are: partisan intimidation (yes, meron din ganyan dito but panaka naka lang naman.)  In  Colorado, one guy was asked to leave because he was wearing a Massachussetts Institute of Technology sweatshirt – which of course read MIT.  akala nila politicking for MITT Romney!!
        In Ohio, there were reports of faulty machines, faulty ballots (local elections lamang – wala sa presidential), inaccurate list of voters etc..  Dito sa binotohan ko, ni hindi man lamang hiningi ID ko.  I think because when i registered to vote weeks ago, I already showed my driver’s license as proof of my ID.   Sa presinto, tinanong lang Last Name initial ko, tapos may makapal na list sila at madaling nahanap pangalan ko after asking my full name.  Then i signed my name across it and BINGO – botohan na.  There were a lot of measures, propositions and statutes to be voted on if you like (state and city wide) kaya pinag-aralan ko pa ring mabuti mga implications nun.  So over all, mga 10 minutes din bago ko sinubmit ang ballot ko.

        Sa Nevada, sa isang small precinct, NBC reporte that a winning vote was for “none of the above” !!!  no kidding

        oh it’s more fun on election time!!! Even the TV actress Roseann Barr was on the ballot for President of Amerida (nuisane candidate kumbaga sa Pilipinas). Last i checked, she had 115 total votes!!!

    • Pitbulldog

      Sinabi na niya yan nung 2008 a.

  • Pert Cabatana

    “though only 39 percent of people believed that the economy was improving, around half of Americans blamed President George W. Bush for the tenuous situation, and not Obama.” This clearly underlines the strategic importance of the presidential election. The president that we elect today has an impact for the next 10-30 years. Note that in the Philippines, we still feel the impact (positive and negative) of Marcos, Cory, FVR, ERAP, GMA. So, let’s be very careful about electing presidents. 

    • tuldok

      You are exactly right.  Early exit polls reveal that 50% of the voters still blame Bush for the mess we inherited.

      • Pitbulldog

        That is how the Democrats fine tuned the mindset of Americans, and by using the blame game on Bush everytime they fail, they were able to hide the fact that they are the culprits in the last four years, especially this idiot.  Gaya ng ungas na P-noy, 4 years na dyan, GMA pa rin lumalabas sa bunganga.  Iwas pusoy.  Okey, after 4 years, let us see kung ang blame game nila ay uubra pa.

    I believe Republican Ron Paul would have been the best man to fix America.
    Obama and Romney…they’re both stooges of a system that has eaten away at this country’s wealth and might.
    But it seems everywhere in the world (at least those in ‘democratic’ countries), sensible votes are rare and scarce.

    • http://twitter.com/Sizzle75Ian ian martinez

      He was the only one who had radical view of how to fix the economy, the others are more populist, but Paul would have fixed the economy

    • riza888

      Ron Paul is an old man stuck in the idea that all of the problems in the world stem from people who don’t look, think or feel as he does. If you aren’t white or male then the country is coddling you (nevermind that the exact opposite is true which is why we adopted things like the civil rights act and the American Disabilities Act). He has a very narrow viewpoint of the world and he doesn’t wish to expand it. Do you want to abolish the FDA and let the market determine the safety of drugs? Ron Paul does. 
      Ron Paul may indeed be a very nice old man however his opinions ultimately do not lead to a diverse, tolerant, and more caring community. And those values are incredibly important to me as a parent.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5QJUD47DAPM2Y5J3AEMCE2C624 John TWT

        Narrow?
        If Americans listened to Ron Paul and Peter Schiff, among others, back in the early 2000’s when they were explaining how unsustainable and inefficient the economy was being run (mostly influenced by the Fed) and that a crisis was hiding behind the bubble, we would be seeing a stronger USA…and certainly many parents would be better off then they are now.
        Texans can attest to the soundness of Mr Paul’s initiatives.
        Mr Paul’s ideas were tested in the debates and his opponents found it hard to rebut most of them.
        Mainstream America will reap their mainstream policies and will just have to live with its tragic outcomes.

  • martial_law_baby

    Funny these FilAM Romney lovers whining about another more years on dole outs and welfare. You are criticizing the system which you are benefiting. Do you think you’ll have a job there in the US of A if not some Americans were displaced by you and so they are now on welfare. The irony is, you left the Philippines because you want a better life. So who is lazy now? Meantime we here in the PH are stuck in the rut and working up our arse just to make this country a better place to live in. If you hate the system you are into there in the US of A, then get your brown arse back here now in PH and contribute positively instead of whining a lot. But I guess you are just too lazy so you’ll just continue complaining on the system you are benefitting and wait for us here in the PH to make our motherland a better place to live so you can come back home.

       martial_law_baby:Maybe the Pinoys can learn from the Germans. After WWII, the Germans didn’t opt to go to America in masses to have a better living but instead sacrificed their pastimes and youth and worked up their backs to rebuild the nation. The result is all well-known.(It is admirable what this country achieved and despite the demographic winter this country is predicted to go through, acc. to HSBC, Germany will still be on high level playing field in terms of economics – number 5 – in 2050. The much praised predicted no. 16 position of the Philippines looks pale to that despite a much younger, larger population it will have at that time).

    Congrats to Obama and the Fil-Am democrats here.

    Americans are correct in not pinning the economy woes to the incumbent. The US took more than a decade and WWII mobilization  to get itself out of the 30’s Great Depression. This recession that started with the 2007 Wall Street Crash is second only to that, yet there are signs of recovery already in 4 years. I hope Obama can show his leadership with an America in resurgence, not merely as a sweeper for the Bush administration’s failures. In this respect, Obama’s situation mirrors that of PNoy.

    I still believe that Republicans would have served themselves better if they nominated Ron Paul. He would still have lost to Obama, by a greater margin, but at least the GOP would have redirected the debate on proper channels; like how to cut the deficit, reexamining the military-industrial complex, and putting the Fed on audit. Right now, the Republicans are too focused upon religion on domestic issues and war on foreign policy; any economic policy they advance either harkens back to Bush or offer no real difference to the Democrats. The perception of the party being racist is not helped by fielding a Mormon. The Republicans need to retool their party or the incoming younger demographic will make them irrelevant in presidential elections to come.

    Oh, and funny seeing Filipinos here being so bitter about an election that doesn’t involve them . OA na kayo.

  • kilabot

    this is a classic example of bad people succeeds because good people do nothing or deceived. how can lgbt perverts, babykillers, junkies, bums and freeloaders dictate the political outcome? a failure in moral education, just like in the philippines. erap’s election as president comes to mind.

    • Guest

      Well, the devil whose name is “Democracy” (it should be rather “democrazy”) made the success of the “bad people” possible.

      BTW, if you even admit moral failures of the Philippines, don’t you ask yourself, if the Church has a big share of blame? See flip-flop position of the pope on condoms, or, in Philippine context, Cardinal Sin’s silence on Arroyo.

    • Guest

       The RCC is shadow of itself and a whole joke. I observed it in the last years and sometimes ask myself: How low can that institution become?

      In Philippines, it did not stop Playboy and other evils, corruption flourishes in this fully pseudo-Catholic country and so on.  Also, the misunderstanding of this forgiving culture contributes a lot to the malaise of this country. (Spain at least knew, when forgiving is not an option. – Of course that country went into the moral toilet bowl since the end of Francisco Franco.)

    CONGRATULATIONS To ALL Asian-americans who supported Obama!!!

    I just got home from the Virginia Victory party for Obama in Fairfax county, VA!

    It was an UNBELIEVABLE night for Asian-Americans both in Virginia & Nationally !

    As some of you are aware, Virginia was a SWING State! It was a Very Tough race & We Pulled it off!!!!

    Obama won Virginia by over 100,000 votes in a close race! ( Out of about 3.5 million Virginians who voted) 

    The Most Asians & Filipinos here are VERY PROUD of is the fact that based on Exit polls of the Virginia Union data- about 237,000 Asian-Americans voted today in Virginia.

    And Obama WON among Asian-Americans by 36 POINTS !!!! That’s an unbelievable # that we never expected. Asian-Americans PLAYED a BIG ROLE in Helping Obama secure the 100,000 margin of Victory here !!!

     In 2008, Obama won the Asian-American vote in Virginia by 23 points ! So we basically improved the Asian-americans for Democrat Obama by 13 more points in 2012! to 36 points!!!

    We Literally Matched the Latino-americans who gave Obama a 36 point win as well here in VA! We never expected that!!!

    ALL the HARDWORK of Asian volunteers for Obama paid off big time!!!

    According to AADL, Obama WON ALL Asian-American groups in Virginia- Chinese, Filipinos, Indians, Koreans, Vietnamese, Cambodians, Japanese & Pakistanis!!!!

    The EVEN MORE IMPRESSIVE part is NATIONALLY across the United states, based on CNN Polls- Obama
    won the Asian-American vote by 47 POINTS !!!!!  73% for Obama vs. 26% for Romney !

    PLUS, Obama WON the CATHOLIC VOTE NATIONALLY !!! And the VIRGINIA CATHOLIC VOTE by 12 points !!!!

    Here in Virginia, according to the AADL polling group who worked closed with Virginia Union in their exit poll #’s,

    Flipino-Americans here in Virginia voted overwhelming for Democrat Obama 69% to 31% !!!

    BIG BIG Thanks to a United Filipino community & all the various organizations headed by
    alumni associations of UP, Ateneo, De Lasalle, FEU, UE, Assumption, St.Scholastica, San Beda College and of course the Filipino-american Democrats of Virginia, the Filipino-American Labor Union Council, the Filipino-American VA Chamber of Commerce, the Filipino-American VA Business Owners Association, etc.

    Mabuhay Obama! Mabuhay Asian Americans!

    For those of you who follow US politics & the demographic changes in America- the Republican Party will face an ever worse Nightmare in 2016 unless the dying moderates within the Republican party take control of their party from these Conservative Nutwings within the party!

    Every 4 years, the share of White voters goes down 2%-4%!

    In 2004, Whites were 77% of voters, in 2008 it was 74%, today in 2012 it was 72%

    in 2016, many predict they will  either be at 70% or even at  69%

    While Latinos,Asians & Blacks keep rising at 2%-4% !

    And since in 2012, 9 out of 10 blacks voted for Democrats, 7 out of 10 Latinos voted for Democrats, and 7 out of 10 Asians voted for Democrats – the republicans are in trouble!

    Just like in 2008, about 4 out of 10 whites voted for Democrats !

    That was enough to win in 08 & 12!

    Both Respected Republican Analyst Alex Castellenos & Respected Conservative Columnist & staunch Republican Writer William Kristol BOTh said they could SEE Republicans losing 2016 & 2020 & beyond in bigger numbers unless the Republican party finds a way to reach out to minorities!!!

    They see the FVE BIGGEST HEADACHES in Demographics for Republicans are:

    1) Latinos are the fastest growing # of First Time voters & is expected to 3% to as high as 5% of new voters by 2016

    2) Asian-american voters are expected to TRIPLE in % to about 9%-10% of electorate by 2020

    3) Young White voters 30 yrs & below are heavily Democratic. Obama won the White vote tonight among 30 yrs & younger by 30 :POINTS !!!!

    Young white voters today are expected to be about 1/3 of All white voters by 2020!

    4) Many Republican analyst expect a Swing of at least 10% of Older White voters 65 yrs & older back to the Democrats by 2016 when a Black Man is No Longer running for President!

    If the Democrats nominate a white person for President like say Hillary Clinton, Gov. Patrick O’Malley or Gov. Andrew Coumo in 2016, they expected a significant percentage of Older, More conservative & traditional senior citizens to once again swing back to democrats because of issues concerning retirement, social security & medicare!

    5) Both believe that Two Large states of Arizona  & Texas are about to become Swing states by 2016 or latest 2020 due to the RAPID 1st time voters among Latinos & Asians.

    ( Texas   would find itself in the VERY SAME TRANSFORMATION that  other southern states like Virginia & Florida have gone thru. Once solid Republican states that are NOW being won by Democrats because of democraphic changes!)

    If they lose Texas together with FL, PA & the two other largest states of CA & NY – You are NOT going to see a Republican win national office for years!

    Same with Arizona, it is expected to follow the footsteps of its neighbors Colorado & Nevada !

    Colorado & Nevada used to be solid Republican two decades ago. Today, it has been strong  democratic leaning states in national elections due to the RISE of New Latino voters & Asian voters!

Sino ba ang may gustong mamuhay sa ibang bayan? Ngayong matanda na ako, ganoon pa rin. Hindi ako namimilit at ayaw ko ng ako’y pipilitin. Masarap ang mamuhay ng malaya ang pag-iisip, malaya ang pagpapasiya at hindi ipokrito. Kung kontento ka sa iyong paniniwala at maligaya ka, iyan ang mahalaga. Ang ibig ko lang ay huwag mong ipipilit sa ibang tao ang inaakala mong tama sa iyo. Diyan tayo hindi magkakaunawaan. Kahit nasaan pa akong lupalop, hindi ako magbabago, kabayan. Siyanga pala, kabayan. Wala akong kinatatakutan kundi ang gumawa ng labag sa batas gaya ng magsamantala sa ibang tao, magnakaw, pumatay, magmaneho ng mali, mang-agaw ng gamit ng iba, mambabae, mangholdup, tumanggap ng lagay, manlinlang ng tao, tumira sa lupang hindi akin at iba pang ikahihiya ng aking pagkatao at ng aking pamilya! Kung may Diyos, bahala na siya. Hindi ko alam ang kanyang programa at alam kong alam niya ang ibig niyang mangyari.

        Okay, saludo ako dyan. If you have been a responsible person, so be a responsible parent to your children as well. You should know how to distinguish which is morally better for them in the long run, or what good ideals and policies to embrace or discard. It is not about politically correctness or pro-choice. It is what is morally right.

    Kabayan, anong klaseng salita iyan? Kahit na sinong mabuti at marangal na tao, Caucasian, Filipino, Chinese, Japanese, Black at iba pang lahi o kaya ay Diyos, kung may Diyos, ay hindi ka igagalang. Magisip-isip ka kabayan! Ngayon kung hindi ka marangal at pangit ang iyong pagkatao, hindi ako magtataka sa lumabas sa bibig mo.

    I do not generally comment on posts by readers here. But I certainly find Mr. Alan Bitter Gayetano’s use of the N word very disgusting.

    Cussing and the use of politically incorrect words have no place in any forum of opinions. 

    I do not know the person, his residence or his political affiliations. Whether he is a US citizen or a republican does not matter. He certainly is a bane to any cause that he espouses.

    If he is a republican or a tea party advocate, this is the kind of language that has helped Obama win. Unfortunately, he does not get it.

    Congratulations! King Obama and Queen Michelle. If you really care about the country and the people please donate your salary and millions of stocks to the poor. Tell Queen Michelle to avoid travelling around the world at the expense of the taxpayers. Stop playing the blame game. I do hope that you will dig a big hole and bury all your luxuries in life and yourself when your allah will call you home.

    Obama inherited a very bad economy from Bush to start with and to rebuild it from the ground simply will take time. It will take a lot of patience and most of all a lot of sacrifice from the American people before recovery and comfortable life can be felt by all. I cannot imagine that Bush was cutting taxes for the rich while facing two wars and to finance this war, they have to barrow money from China hence  a very big deficit occurred that has to be address right now otherwise the financial consequence will effect the whole world in a bad way. Patience with Obama is the name of the game here.
