My Mom says not to talk about politics on this blog, but I am sure you have all figured out that I wouldn’t have been a Romney supporter, given that I’m not a rich white man. I was following the election very closely (wish I’d take a fraction of this amount of interest in Canadian politics) and it was such a relief to find out that Americans made the right choice by re-electing Barack Obama. Despite the Republicans talk about economy being the main issue, I think we can safely say that the Americans have spoken out on (binders of) women’s rights, immigration, and social policy by voting Democrat. I loved that Todd “legitimate rape” Akin did not get re-elected, nor did Richard “pregnancy from rape is something that God intended to happen” Mourdock. I love that Mitt Romney’s rhetoric on the 47% and “illegals” (as opposed to undocumented workers, as Obama calls them) hurt his campaign and his reputation. Finally, I love that one of the world’s super powers has a leader who is reasonable, rational, compassionate, modern, and smart. The whole world can now breathe a sigh of relief.
