These were the only lights that mattered in Times Square last night.
Following the projection that Obama had won reelection, my friends and I rushed out of where we were watching the results and ran through the streets. Everyone was greeting each other with a “Woo!” or a high five or a chant of “four more years!”. On a whim, we decided to walk to Times Square from Washington Square, where more people were celebrating.
Truly a night to remember.
Thank you, Mr. President, and here’s to another four years!
Obama on Romney: “You know that guy ain’t shit. Sorry ass motherfucker ain’t got nothing on me.”
THIS IS THE GREATEST DAY OF MY DAY
The question “are we better off than we were 4 years ago?” has been asked by many during this election season. In 2008 I voted for Obama and there was never a doubt in my mind that I would again vote for the President for reelection. But the other day before I cast my ballot, I thought back on that question, am I better off than I was 4 years ago? Emphatically, I have to say YES!

Florida absentee ballots are steadily coming in: 275,000 through October 13th. The absentee ballots break down 44% Republican to 40% Democratic. The 4 point Republican advantage in absentee ballots is down from 17 points at this point in 2008, when Obama won the state by 2 points.
2.2 million Floridians have requested absentee ballots: 42% requested by Republicans vs 39% by Democrats. This 3 point Republican advantage is down from a 14 point advantage in 2008.
Those numbers are discouraging for Republicans, but Romney is currently leading in the state since October, according to most polls, and his average lead is 2.5 points (Source). However, we could see another swing back to President Obama in the next few weeks.
Long story short: Florida is going to be close yet again.

Floridians… make sure you get out there and vote.
