President Barack Obama: Yes we can, yes we did — again

Obama is the 44th president of the United States and he was first elected in 2008. For those who practice Christianity, the number eight is the number that represents a new beginning. And certainly the election of Obama in 2008 represented a new chapter in American history and a new perspective of what is possible.

When the early results of the 2012 presidential election scrolled slowly across television screens. it appeared that incumbent President Obama was facing a considerable deficit against GOP challenger Mitt Romney, and panic descended on many election night watch parties. Not long thereafter, however, as the ”big money” states’ results came in, Obama actually beat his formidable foe in the electoral colleges with 332 votes to Romney’s 206 votes.

And the most delicious twist of irony from the entire election season is the fact that Romney wound up with 47 percent of the popular vote — the exact percentage of the U.S. populace that the Mormon candidate said didn’t take responsibility for their own lives.

    It’s not that folks have to necessarily be pining for the ’80s and ’90s, some of us just still have standards and can’t relate to talentless coons.

    You people are tripping madly! Joe Budden has beeen knocking it out of the park with each project he’s made since ’07. He’s a great artist and don’t ever confuse him with bad hip hop. Additionally, have you ever heard of a little group called Slaughterhouse?– the most lyrically-talented group in all of current hip hop. Look I love 90’s rap, but how bout you listen to an artist instead of assuming he’s bad because he’s on a reality show. You are missing out.
