1. And, as Tweety pointed out

The only Dem to win two terms w/ over 50% since FDR. This is a MANDATE!!

3. Their last hope was to delegitimize him by makijg hik a one term president

 

He still kicked their ass.

Barack Obama will go down as one of the greatest presidents in history.

Now begins the Barack Obama project. let's name EVERYTHING after Barack Obama.

9. This is huge. Arsenio Hall explained it in a way that really made me think.

He said it was a huge race for minorities. That if Obama were only a one-termer, many would be all like, "ya know... we TRIED that black president thing and it just didn't work" for many years to come.

But... WE FUCKING WON!!

11. Dems have won 5 of the last 6 elections

at least popular vote wise. So can all pundits stop with the America is a center-right nation bullshit and start focusing on what Americans actually vote for and about.

29. I said to my students when I told them I early-voted and one asked if I voted for the Black guy...

that I voted for the white guy. Barack Obama.

The African-American part is pretty important historically, though.

Actually we all know Bill Clinton was the first Black President.

35. Despite the obstructionism, outright hatred, voter suppression, and even

potential machine rigging against Obama, he still wins.

There may still be hope for America yet!
