Nov. 6, 2012 — what a day it was. Our president, Barack Obama, was re-elected for a second presidential term and as the leader of the free world — and the world held its breath.
Who would have thought such an event possible, in his wildest dreams, 149 years, or even 20 years, ago.
Obama's great acceptance speech was deeply moving, as was the overwhelming, genuine happiness and the emotional response of the thousands of Americans in the audience.
America has proven itself, once again, to be a truly exceptional nation — a beacon of freedom, liberty and equality for all of mankind.
America — what a country.
