Wow. Let that sink in: “Barack Obama Reelected 44th President Of The United States.” President Obama won reelection gaining 303 electoral votes to 206 for Governor Mitt Romney. Obama also won the popular vote, but just barely.
The lessons from this victory are many, but this blogger thinks the paramount one is that Mitt Romney ran a campaign that was, to a degree, based on race and racism, and sexism to a much lesser degree, but still obvious. The GOP has to be reformed for a 21st Century where the percentage of the total number of voters that’s white is the lowest in history, and the share of people of color is the highest in history.
But this win was also a rubber-stamp of the Obama approach: Government matters. And Americans do want an activist government.
