BARACK OBAMA has been reelected president of the United States of America.. Shortly after his win, Obama delivered a victory speech. Some said it was inspiring. Others believed it was stirring. For Tito Sotto, it was worth translating.
In his victory speech, US President Obama said, “I have never been more hopeful about America. And I ask you to sustain that hope.” And then it got a bit weird when he declared, “Hahabulin natin ang mga tiwali at nagsamantala noong panahon ng pamamahala ni Ginang Arroyo!”
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama won. Scorecard: Empty chair: 1, Clint Eastwood: 0
Barack Obama has won the presidency. Remaining allies of former President Arroyo have jumped ship and joined Obama’s party.
The second inauguration of Barack Obama happens on Jan. 21, 2013. There’s no truth to rumors he’ll take his oath before Conchita Carpio-Morales.
President Obama will have his inauguration on January 21, 2013. He personally invited Noel Cabangon to sing a couple of songs, or maybe more.
Republican Governor Mitt Romney lost to Barack Obama. Big Bird is inviting everyone to a Sesame Street Party.
Republican Congressman Paul Ryan lost his vice presidential bid. His devastated wife Janna said, “Losing was tough.” And Korina Sanchez was like, “I know, right.”
Paul Ryan lost the elections but he looks forward to returning to Congress. He’s now forming 1-America Always Alive , a party-list group.
The presidential election is finally over. The Obama administration should now focus on rescuing Rick Grimes, his son Carl, Hershel, Glenn, Maggie et al. in Atlanta. When will you act people? For chrissakes, Lori’s already dead!
The magic number to win the White House is 270. The magic number to win Malacañang was 0927-IGLESIA.
Polling data guru Nate Silver impresses Americans again as he calls every state right in presidential vote. He’s been accurate in forecasting the winner in every state as he did in the 2008 elections. I think we should be alarmed if Silver begins predicting the end of the world.
I believe however that Nate Silver would have NOT predicted the winner of the 2004 Philippine presidential polls.
Barack Obama has won the presidency. At press time though, Namfrel is still doing a quick count.
“In a victory speech, I like to thank the opposition, because without their help, I couldn’t have won.”
