The Presidential Election Is Over the People Have Spoken
For several months the Presidential election was brutal. It got on my last nerve, all the inappropriate things that were said throughout this presidential campaign. Well, when all was said and done the people spoke. I think Mitt Romney concession speech was classy. It was a particular part in his speech that made me look at Mitt Romney a little more kindly. When he said, “The nation, as you know, is at a critical point. At a time like this we can't risk partisan bickering and political posturing. Our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people's work, and we citizens also have to rise to occasion. We look to our teachers and professors. We count on you not just to teach, but to inspire our children with a passion for learning and discovery. We look to our pastors and priests and rabbis and counselors of all kinds to testify of the enduring principles upon which our society is built: Honesty, charity, integrity, and family. We look to our parents. From the final analysis, everything depends on the success of our homes. We look to job-creators of all kinds. We're counting on you to invest, to hire, to step forward, and we look to Democrats and Republicans in government at all levels to put the people before the politics.” I just hope Mitt Romney means what he said and sticks to it and not be on and off the fence like he was when he was running for president. This was the most powerful election in the history of the United States. Because of the record number of people who went to the polls. I was so overjoyed with the Presidents acceptance speech. One thing that really stood out and made me so proud to me an American and to live in the best nation in the world, was when he said, "America, I believe we can build on the progress we've made and continue to fight for new jobs and new opportunities and new security for the middle class. I believe we can keep the promise of our founding, the idea that if you're willing to work hard, it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn't matter, whether you're black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight. You can make it here in America if you're willing to try." I think the people understood this and that’s why they gave President Barack Obama a second chance to bring this country together. President Obama has always been willing, but he has had opposition from the start. I think he will bring the two parties together this would be good for the United States and the world.
