Obama Wins Second Term

President Barack Obama was re-elected as president on Tuesday, defeating Mitt Romney after a long, hard-fought campaign.

NY Times

Barack Obama was re-elected as president on Tuesday, the television networks projected, defeating Mitt Romney after a long, hard-fought campaign that centered on who would heal the battered economy and on what role government should play in the 21st century.

The presidents official Twitter account quickly posted: This happened because of you. Thank you.

CBS News, CNN, Fox News and NBC News all projected that Mr. Obama would defeat Mr. Romney after concluding that he would win the necessary 270 electoral votes.

Mr. Obama carried New Hampshire and Pennsylvania and was projected by television networks to win Wisconsin, three states Mr. Romney had pursued to block Mr. Obamas re-election.

As a succession of states fell away from Mr. Romney, a hush fell over his Boston headquarters. Advisers sounded uncharacteristically pessimistic about what they acknowledged were dwindling chances of winning an Electoral College majority.

The mood at the Obama campaign in Chicago was optimistic as the outcome of the hard-fought presidential race was dependent on Mr. Romneys running the table in the rest of the competitive battleground states.

Americans delivered a final judgment on a long and bitter campaign that drew so many people to the polls that several key states extended voting for hours. In Virginia and Florida, long lines stretched from polling places, with the Obama campaign sending text messages to supporters in those areas, saying: You can still vote.

The state-by-state pursuit of the 270 electoral votes was being closely tracked by both campaigns, with Mr. Romney winning North Carolina and Indiana, which Mr. Obama carried four years ago. But Mr. Obama won Michigan, the state where Mr. Romney was born, and Minnesota, a pair of states that Republican groups had spent millions of dollars trying to make competitive.

The contests were hanging on the outcome of only a few key counties in the battleground states. In Florida, for example, the two candidates were separated by only thousands of votes out of more than six million ballots cast, with nearly 90 percent of precincts reporting.

what bothers me:
is not the african americans who are rejoicing (it makes sense) or the liberals who are so open minded you can see their brains falling out but the religious jewish people who are ecstatic. They are almost as bad as self hating jews! how can you call yourself jewish, and love the land of israel and at the same time vote for a president who is muslim and couldnt care less about israel? shame on you for voting for obama...and bigger shame for trying to convince yourself that a. you still care about israel, b. you are a jew first and an american second. Sorry, if you voted for obama you put your country before your religion because your religion is Hashem who gave you the land of Israel which you obviously dont care about.

2. They opened denounced G-d and Israel at the Democratic National Convention
3. He has repeatedly snubbed Israel and now Iran has four more years of free reign.
4. All the Jews struggling with their small businesses are now going to fall flat

End of America the beautiful.
It baffles me how intelligent Americans are IN DENIAL of what a wreck Obama has turned this country into. He had a mess to clean up from the prior president AND FAILED TO MAKE THINGS BETTER. I am astounded that smart, frum Jews would blatantly vote for a criminal of a man.
Get a grip people! Realize the MISTAKE OF EPIC PROPORTIONS you have made, which will cause a miserable next four years for the American people.

I agree. If not for this archaic system, George Bush would never have become president, and this country would not find itself in the hole its in today. Obama will win the national vote as well, so this not applicable in this election, but getting rid of the electoral college would be a great move.

From one who left
What will happen now is:

A) America will experience a revolution in which it returns to the old work ethic rather than worshiping athletes, actors, and others whose IQ and moral level are between the gutter and the sewer. Obama and his supporters will become a laughingstock long before the end of term 2, and the left will not get in again for 10 terms.

or..

B) The goldeneh medine is over. Such is history. Once there was Greece, then Rome, eventually Spain, then Britain, then America, now the Asian powers. In 4 years, America will be like any socialist European country - great if you're on welfare or want to work as little as possible, but no place to get ahead. Someone like Nancy Pelosi will follow Obama, and the talented immigrants from Asia who run American hi-tech will stay home and work there, so America will become irrelevant.

The problem is that by the time America wakes up, it will be too late. Oholei Torah'niks who aren't learning English anyway will sign up for Chinese classes :)!

My opinion
Everyone is saying how Obama is so bad for Israel. Listen, you cant trust Goyim to be good for Israel! You have to trust in Hashem. The United States President is not the one that should be blamed for everything that happens. And romeny would not have been any better.
Think of it from the good side. Now all you people who are posting that you hate Obama, meanwhile you get food stamps, Insurence, etc. with him, will actually get good from this four years.
Please, The only think good about Romney is that he is "good" for Israel. (in quotes, because really what is he going to do). Otherwise, that guy is made for the rich people. I know people like my grandmother, who wont go to the doctor unless she has her mediciad. The democrats are here to help you.

Read this and educate yourself
It seems that the Chabad community as a whole (and the Litvishe communities) are under the impression that republican candidates are better for Israel. This is entirely wrong.

The facts speak for themselves:

1. The Rebbe never spoke about making an effort to vote for a Republican president for the sake of Israel. The Rebbe spoke about the government of ISRAEL protecting their own country. Israel's problems have always been, and continue to be the fault of their own government.

2. If you think that Republican candidates are better for Israel, compare the Bush and Obama/Clinton years. During Bush, the Intifada broke out with non-stop terrorist attacks and suicide bombs spanning 2001-2006, and Bush did absolutely NOTHING about it, other than pressure Israel to make more and more concessions. And, Gaza was given away during the Bush years. But you know what Bush did do? he attacked Iraq!

I should also make an honorable mention that the republican Richard Nixon was a rabid anti-semite, (and still had Israel's back during the YK war.)

And don't bring up the nuclear Iran situation, because as Romney has said himself in the third presidential debate, he will not do much different than what Obama is doing. There is evidence that Iran is starting to cave under pressure, and even if not, you can rest assured that should Israel fight them, Obama WILL have Israel's back. Mark my words.

Obama "snubbing" Netanyahu was utter propaganda.

When Obama won in '08, everybody blamed it on the hype of Hope and Change, and that "America went crazy". The fact is, Obama ran a more serious campaign this time, he campaigned in half-empty arenas and still won the election. The people made a calculated vote for him.

You can stop with blaming O for this debt nonsense. The multi-billion dollar bailouts started with Bush, and I assure you, had the had another 2 years in office, American would have looked exactly the same as it looks now.

Chabad voters need to start seriously rethinking their party loyalties. And deep down, many of you know az du hos feint Obama vibald az du host feint di shvartze. - GET OVER IT.

Right on thte money.

Unfortunately, the willful misinformation propaganda campaign against Obama and the Democrats is not grounded in reality, but in irrational fear, hatred, and self-loathing.

If Crown Heights-ers had a modicum of honesty, they would acknowledge that Israel is not worse off today then it was four years ago, that this community is on the receiving, not giving end of the welfare state, and that no president could have arbitrarily cut 1.3 trillion dollars out of the structural budget they inherited.

While Obama may not be ideal, he is far from the demonic caricature he has been presented to be. Racist stereotypes, outlandish birther claims, and phony self-righteousness, do nothing to further our cause.

He stands up for immorality such as alternative marriage, abortion and has NO belief in G-d, and HATES Jews. proof of it, he sat through countless of sermons by his preacher riling against Jews (and Israel) and had absolutely NO problem with it. Never mind the fact that his wife (and very probably he as well) hates America and is only proud of it when she is sitting in the white house with all its trimmings..... I can't respect a man who has no values and morals. He is NO good for America, never mind Israel.

Pre-1967 Borders
Does anyone remeber the May 2011 declaration by Barack Hussein Obama stating officially that Israel should return to pre-1967 borders. He has laid low ln Israel buying his time to a second term. Watch out, mark my words. He is planning the establishment of a fanatical, extmist, terrorist state in the very heart of Israel, giving Israel almost no border protection. According to Obama's map, Israel wold have a mere nine miles of land in the center of the country. Bibi may be Israel's best protection to keep Obama from moving an inch towards his goal.

Stop waiting on Moshiach and take care of yourself. With all the entitlements you guys have why complain.

Why did Hashem hit the Jewish community hard during the storm. Maybe he is saying something to the Jewish community.

A lot of what you write is very true. But...

You (purposely?) avoided one main issue on the Israel front: The Oslo Accords.

Clinton pressured Israel relentlessly and they caved. It is the aftermath of Oslo that caused the string of endless suicide bombings. Clinton was a disaster for Israel.

But aside from Israel, there are other issues on the table: The Democratic party has become vehemently anti-God, taking mention of the Almighty and Jerusalem as the capital, out of their playbook. They are advocating alternative lifestyles, unrestrained feel-good behavior, abdication of personal responsibility, and a complete break down of the basic tenets of morality in our society.

So, this is not only about Israel: at the end of the day, Israel does has to be strong and look out for itself, because every American gov't, no matter how benevolent, does NOT have Israel's back.

The issue here also is our responsibility to help build and maintain a moral society and a strong America. The unions and their trolls control the Democratic party and they are wreaking havoc on American productiveness and success. They are behind the destruction of Agriprocessors and they are the reason that there is such a slow return to normalcy after the hurricane.

Obama is a brilliant manipulator, and his court Jew, Axelrod, is even more brilliant. He won because he had good tactics, and is highly charismatic, not because Americans made any calculated choices. Americans are pretty dumb. The problem is, America is becoming dumber and dumber, and will end up like Europe. As an aside, throwing the race card (in yiddish, noch!) is beneath contempt. Give us a shtikel credit, Chochom.

The fact is, that America has changed to a greedy, self-serving society, with a do-it-if-feels-good mentality. This election is a reflection of that.

The lights have gone out from the shining city on the hill. The great chapter of the American Exceptionalism is over. America is in decline, and for this, I mourn.

Court Jew? I'm sure the Germans would be proud.

Greedy, self-serving society? Sounds very much life the Ayn Rand fantasists of the Republican party.

And last I checked, the Limbaugh's of the Republican party are not exactly the models of morality you claim to adhere to.

Americans are "dumb" when they vote for Obama, but the exact same people are just brilliant when they vote (twice) for a war mongering play-cowboy who turned a budget surplus into a $1.3 trillion dollar deficit.

You ought to consider revisiting your hysterical rhetoric in four years from now. In 1996, when Clinton won reelection, Republicans were making the exact same hyperbolic claims and using almost the exact same rhetoric (We've lost the shining city on the hill, American exceptionalism is over, we are in decline), only to be followed by the greatest boom time in my lifetime.

At the very minimum, come up with some new material. If we wanted to hear the same old rehashed talking-points about America in decline, we could just tune in to "moralist" Limbaugh.

Yes, court Jew. And yes, the Germans and the Europeans would be proud. They knew how to make use of the Jew. They knew how to harness their cleverness for their own ends. This is not new, this is the story of Europe, a continent that Obama is so enamored with. Marxism, Bundism, the Yevesektzia, the whole lot of them, they all had their useful Jews.

Why do you not address any of the points of America in moral decay? Why do you not address the issue of the Oslo accords? Is a feel-good-do-it America, good for America, let alone for the world? America used to be a light unto the nations, with faith in God, proclaimed even on the dollar bill itself. It was an example of hard work and investment in family and community. This is quickly slipping away. Obama engaged in a relentless class warfare, which is simply despicable. I am not wealthy; far from it, I am part of the working class. But I am buoyed by stories of achievement and success: I certainly do not resent it.

For the record, I detest Rush Limbaugh, I cannot stand to listen to him and I thought that GW Bush was a colossal failure and joke; the guy could not even speak English properly. I am not a Republican and do not carry the water for the Republicans. This is about ideas - not teams. If Obama carried ideas that would further the interests of America and its people and its allies such as Israel, I would be the first to support him. But he does not. He is in the process of creating a legacy for himself, and the interim is creating a huge social experiment on the USA. Unfortunately, these have been tried and tested in Europe. Canada experienced a similar phase during the Trudeau years ( in the 70's), "Trudea mania" they called it then; they are still recovering. Canada is pulling away from socialized medicine, because it is a colossal failure. Everyone gets the same mediocre treatment, unless you can afford to get first class treatment in the US. It can take up to 6 months to get an MRI and months of waiting to get a specialist to look at a patient, let alone do surgery.

America will pay dearly for this, but not now. It will take 20, 30 years for the damage to become apparent, as it has in Greece, Spain and the rest of the European continent.

Why is Moscow celebrating Obama's victory? These are not our friends. Why are the radicals in Europe celebrating it? Why has the stock market plunged today? When your enemies rejoice in your choice of leader, that should make you pause.

Obama's rhetoric in this election was unprecedented in terms of its lows and vulgarity, and America was sullied in the process. Romney was a moderate, but above all, he was an example of class and decency. He will be the great president America never had, to its great detriment.

I have not purposely avoided mentioning the Oslo accords, all I had said was to compare the security of Israel in the Clinton/Obama years to the Bush years.

The Oslo accords began in Madrid in 1991 during Bush Senior's administration. Clinton finished what Bush Started.

But that is irrelevant. Saying that the intifada that began in 2001 is a direct result of the Oslo accords in 1993 is ludicrous. It may have contributed to it, but a lot happened in what was almost a decade.

Now, on to the next thing:

The Democratic party is "left of center". There are a vast amount of Liberals in the Democratic party, thus the booing of G-D that you heard during their convention. For the record, the people booing were the low level DELEGATES, not any high elected Democratic officials.

The Liberals themselves say that they don't agree with the policies of the Democratic party, but they affiliate with them because they are the "lesser of two evils" (in their opinion).

To put things in perspective: The Liberals in the Democratic party are the equivalent of the Tzfatim in the Meshichist party. The Meshichist party does not believe in wearing yellow pins and making a shvil, but nor do they stop the extremists from doing so, because at the end of the day, it is the extremists who are the most vocal and powerful element of their party. (Just like the ultra conservatives are to the Republicans).

The Democratic party has accepted same gender marriage as much as mainstream Meshichists have accepted the yellow pins. They don't advocate it, but nor are they vocally against it, and, as a result must accept it. (Because, after all, the Democrats do preach "equality and acceptance")

I am not sure why the abortion issue should bother you or anyone. I actually wonder if abortion in the first two trimesters for a gentile is part of the Sheva Mitzvos B'nei Noach. If not, it should not bother you at all.

For the record, the Conservative stance on abortion, the use of birth control, and stem cell research is entirely not in line with Halacha. Halacha is way more lenient on these issues than they are.

But once again, this is all irrelevant. The Torah never talks about a gentile government being the "morality police". Yonah didn't tell the king of Ninveh to force his people to be moral, he spoke directly to the people. If you want morality in this country, then Jews are to be a moral compass for all humanity. Unfortuntely, Jews are doing the opposite of that. [Although, proudly, Chabad is indeed being a moral compass!] How are gentiles to know about the Sheva Mitzvos if we don't teach it to them, and if we don't teach them by example?

As for Obama being a manipulator:

Maybe you can get away with saying that in 2008. In the 2012 campaign, Obama's rallies were half empty, and Romney's were overflowing with historic proportions, thus giving the Republicans the impression that they had this election in their pocket. Much to the Republican's (And my own) dismay, voters turned out in record numbers to vote for Obama, outshining the record numbers that came to vote for Romney.

The voters who cast their ballots for Obama did so without any commotion as they did in 2008. Many of them, most notably Independents, gave careful thought to the two candidates, and made the choice to vote for Obama.

For the record, I am a Republican.

You all have to open your eyes Obama hates us as well as Israel hes pro unmoral disgusting ways of life which is against Halacha completely killing babies is that someone you want to elect someone who allows alternative marriages.

i don't agree with since you make it sound as if Obama is more pro-Israel than the other presidents you mention. This is clearly not the case. He has tried to implement policies - like the Buiding Freeze and the going back to the 1949 lines - which if successful would have put the majority of the Israeli population in danger H"Y.

On the other hand, because his requests of Israel are so extreme, he dose'nt get anything at all. Tofasto Meruba Lo Tofasto.

I agree with you that Halacha varies greatly and is far more nuanced on issues such as birth control, abortion etc and as such we do not buy into the conservative right's interpretation of morality. But as Jews, we do have our own moral compass. Neither the Democrats nor the Republicans are identical with our moral ideals, so that is why I would not subscribe to one or the other. But as I see it now, the Democrats are not just tolerating the extremists, as you put it. They are actively advocating alternative lifestyles; Obama was championing this new America just the other day.

It is one thing not to believe in moral policing, but quite another to stand by as immorality as we understand it, is not only advocated, but celebrated. It is convenient to say that this is the fringe, but the facts on the ground say otherwise. America is changing and not for the better.

Romney's large family was ridiculed over and over again in the media, as was his wife for being a stay-at-home mom. They would have made a fine first family who would have taught the 7 mitzvahs by example.

Under Obama, America is turning towards European values. That continent has little to teach us, they are the seat of Jewish suffering for over a thousand years, a suffering that ended in the ultimate show of European values.

America was a single beacon of light in the sea of nations, and that light is diminishing and I am greatly saddened by it.

On the other hand, it does clearly underscore that we are still in golus, a reality we tend to gloss over, and at the end of the day, that is the truth, no matter who the president is.

I think it is a good thing that Obama didn't visit Israel during his presidency. The longer he stays away from Israel the better. Who needs another 'peace process?'

Some facts about O....
lets look at some clear and true facts about the actions of Barack Hussein.
* In his inauguration speech in 2009 he said "America was built by christians and muslims, hindus and Jews and non believers" In 1776 there were Christians and Jews who fought with George Washington, no muslims or hundus and the term non believers is an islamic term, most Americans say atheists. He began rewriting history from day one putting the Jews last.
* His first phone call in the white house was to PA leader Abbas, a Holocaust denier and enemy of the State of Israel.
* In his four years in office he has not attended church in D.C.
* he ordered the removal of a sculpture of Winston Churchill, probably the greatest statesman in the last 100 years who helped defeat YM"SH hitler, white Churchill offends his non American sensibilities.
* He refers to the koran as "the holy Koran". A christian would not consider that book of wild made up fantasies as 'holy'
* He promised he would transform America, now that he does not care about getting re-elected anymore, watch how the real Obama comes forth.
* His first biography published in 1990s states he was born in Mombasa Kenya.

It will be dark days in America, while the masses celebrate in wild delirium, while drinking the koolaid of Govt handouts, watch the $ become monopoly paper, the only stock up on Wednesday was gold, which just means the value of paper money is less.

In the end Hashem is in control, and this is Almah Deshikrah. #116 and 121 great posts. The republicans will have to get a minority candidate to win over the racist masses. They are racists because they only look at skin colour when they vote.

C'mon tell it like it is
The NY Times article posted, not to mention the picture, show a very positive spin on the president. Why? We know that this can hardly be called a positive development- not in terms of health insurance for working people who are not benefits recipients, not in terms of Israel AND anti semitism in general, and not in terms of the ominous turn of society, culture and definitions of humanity. Remember, the majority of people voted for him and that says more about the state of the nation than anything else.
The only positive I can find in this is remembering the famous story of Rabbi Akiva laughing when he saw the fox come out of the ruins of the Bais Hamikdash, knowing that if This prophecy came true, then the prophecy of Moshiach must come true too.. Why be a victim to the times and feel the need to be so politically correct in this article? There's nothing wrong in standing for something that counts.

#138 you are mistaken
There is a fine line between diplomacy and grovelling at the feet of the corrupt and inspiring their contempt. Historically, in America, the people who effected change were those who came out in great numbers and demonstrated most vocally and uncompromisingly their demand. Much, much diplomacy was used for many years in the case of Pollard. I know because I worked for a major organization known for its refinement and respectful ways that had connections in Senate and spared no diplomatic effort in getting his case heard. Nada. I've seen it here in the history of Crown Heights. Now that times are getting desperate, Jews are finally saying- enough is enough. To quote Country Yossi (who I believe was quoting someone else) 'Sometimes you gotta fight when you're a Jew'.

Obama in Gematria
We can see Yad Hashem in Obama's election. Hashem sent Hurricane Sandy and Romney dropped 5 points in the Gallup poll. He would have won if not for this storm and the embrace with the Governor of NJ
Barack Obama is in the Gematria of 358, which equals Moshiach and also Nachash.
Hurricane Sandy is in the gematria of 501, the same as Barack Hussein Obama.
As we see wit the downfall of CIA head Petraus, who was outspoken against Israel while CINC in Afghanistan, Hashem will protect us and will do even greater miracles for us; As the Rebbe says, Kimei Tzeschem M'mizraim, erenu niflous.
BHO is also the gematria of " Orur Homon" as the Gemara says that at the time of Moschiach, there will be a melech "achzor k'homon".
This should only intensify our striving for MOSHIACH NOW!
