Obama won because for the first time in history a president was re-elected with an economic disaster that he created. The question is why? The answer is for the first time there were more takers(those low functioning individuals who were afraid of losing their entitlements and obamaphones if Romney won) than there were those who believed in working and achieving. This is truly alarming as this is how civilizations begin to change(in this case to socialism) and ultimately fall. It can and must be turned around for our children and grandchildren and I am still confident it will.
