2012 is a truly historical year in American History. The year started with four republican presidential nominees. Former House speaker Newt Gingrich, US Congressman Ron Paul, former US Senator Rick Santorum and Governor Mitt Romney who won the GOP primaries and became the party's presidential candidate for the 2012 Election. Romney later appointed, Congressman Paul Ryan, as his running mate. They were now facing a new challenge, "Obama-Biden".
Both Campaign Teams had already started bombarding each other with negative tv ads and Attacks on their personal lives, long before November 6th. But it was also a campaign of big topics like Bin Laden's death, the Bailout of the American Auto industry , unkept promises and a weak US Economy with millions of unemployed or underemployed Americans, who are struggling to find a job. Both teams took advantage of these hot topics, by turning them into short Campaign ads. Especially Team Obama loved the idea of an aggressive Campaign while Team Romney was already preparing for one Vice-Presidential and three Presidential Campaigns. After both Teams had their ups and downs in these debates, they finally started focussing on Election Night.
Team Romney started touring through the deciding swing states like Ohio, Florida and Colorado. "Tomorro we begin a new tomorrow. Tomorrow we begin a better tomorrow. This nation is going to change for the better tomorrow," he said during a campaign trip in Orlando. "You're going to make a difference. The people of the world are watching. The people of America are watching. We can give them a better tomorrow, and with the help of the people of Florida, that's exactly what will happen," he continued. After Romney's final campaign trip, he and his team traveled back to Boston where they watched the election.
Like Romney and his Election team, President Obama tried to convince undecided voters until the end. "This election will take many twists and many turns, polls will go up and polls will go down, there will be no shortage of gaffes and controversies that keep both campaigns busy and give the press something to write about," the President said in one of hist most important speeches in Ohio. "The decisions we make in the next few years, on everything from debt to taxes to energy and education, will have an enormous impact on this country, and on the country we pass on to our children."
Last night at around 11.16pm, the final election results were analyzed and it became clear that President Obama had been reelected President of the United States of America. Shortly after several networks made the announcement, thousands of Obama supporters started celebrating their President in Chicago. Moments after the final results were released, President Obama gave his victory speech. "Tonight, in this election, you, the American people, reminded us that while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back, and we know in our hearts that for the United States of America the best is yet to come," he said. "I just spoke with Governor Romney and I congratulated him and Paul Ryan on a hard-fought campaign. We may have battled fiercely, but it's only because we love this country deeply and we care so strongly about its future."
"I have just called President Obama to congratulate him on his victory," Mitt Romney said in his concession speech. "His supporters and his campaign also deserve congratulations. I wish all of them well, but particularly the president, the first lady, and their daughters. This is a time of great challenges for America, and I pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation." The 2012 Presidential Campaign has come to an end and now it's time to rebuild our country. President Obama will have to unite the Congress and convince the American people that We're only strong if we work together. "The republican party needs to reshape itself and its members in order to win an election ever again", an analyst said. "Both parties face demographic changes, but the GOP has more work to do."
