Citizens of Australia,
(insert pregnant pause)
I feel proud of you for your support of Barack Obama.
You have chosen well. Not one of you who I know did not support Obama and your faith was not misplaced.
The world will be a better will be a better place with Obama at the helm of arguably the world's most important country.
I thank you.
As for you Americans who actually voted, well done you. It is preferable to have a party of the right in power than have a party of the far right in power. Nevertherless, Romney would have had to moderate his 'ordered' extreme policies and become more practical. But one thing for sure, he would have cut taxes on the rich, leaving the poorer to make up the difference or cut services to them.
Seriously, I am pleased Obama has been re-elected and he may be able to move the US socially forward in a few ways. But it seems he is still hamstrung by the US House of Reps.
Four years ago, who would have thought the US would elect a black president. Who would have thought they would elect him a second time. Who would have thought they would elect someone with the middle name Hussein.
