Obama’s Winning Speech.
By: Adriana

Hey Lions!! Did you guys hear about Obama being re-elected?  Well on Tuesday November 7, 2012 he was re-elected as President of the United States.  Some people were not happy about the fact that Obama got re-elected but some were.  Obama's speech made people very happy and proud about the decision that they made of electing him once again or for the first time.  Obama thanked the people of the United States by the following sentences.  "The task of perfecting our union moves forward. It moves forward because of you.  It moves forward because you reaffirmed the spirit that has triumphed over war and depression, the spirit that has lifted this country from the depths of despair to the great heights of hope."  He also described what hope meant in his own words, "I have always believed that hope is that stubborn thing inside us that insists, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us so long as we have the courage to keep reaching, to keep working, to keep fighting."  Obama also made a joke while he thanked the people of the United States.  "I want to thank every American who participated in this election, whether you voted for the very first time or waited in line for a very long time.  By the way, we have to fix that.  Whether you pounded the pavement or picked up the phone, whether you held an Obama sign or a Romney sign, you made your voice heard and you made a difference."
I interviewed some people about what they thought about Obama winning and his speech.  Here is
how it went.

Patty: I wanted Obama to win because, I need my food stamps.  I eat a lot.  Me in a world without food is like living in a world with no air.  Also I don't want to go back to Mexico, and I heard that Romney was going to ban weaves and I really don't want to see people without weaves!

Amanda: It's pretty cool how Obama won, and his speech was AMAZING and touching.
While Romney gave Obama a good fight for the Presidential spot, Obama's followers did not back down.
