While this story doesn’t really surprise me, I find it mildly disturbing.
It has been reported that on election night Romney staffers and aids were blind sided with cancelled credit cards when they attempted to pay for their cab rides home after Romney’s loss. It would appear the grapes soured faster than Romney conceded defeat. Without warning the billion dollar election machine ground to a halt. Fair enough – but to not even tell them or offer a taxi voucher? Wow.
It was hard to wipe the smile off my face after the results of tonight’s election. I was prepared to cry when Obama spoke. Remembering the emotion of America’s last election, I soon understood why it was different this time. Mr. Obama – you are no longer the first black president, you are president of the United States of America.
The people have spoken. Listen up, throw caution to the wind, and make a difference. You’ve already beaten the odds. We all know you have so much more to accomplish. The race card is gone, we’ve seen your birth certificate, the debate about the last administration is moot because now it is yours.
The next four years may be the fight of your life, but you have nothing to prove and everything to gain. Its time to be presidential.
