Politics • Views: 29,702

Mitt Romney just gave his concession speech. It’s over. All the lying, all the race-baiting, all the obscene amounts of money … all over.

And Barack Obama wins a second term.

I know, I already posted that … but I just like saying it.

UPDATE at 11/6/12 10:11:22 pm

A photo of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Michelle Obama, and Jill Biden, right after hearing that the election was over.

Here’s another thread to discuss the rapidly breaking news from the presidential election…

Election Night Open, Thread Four

Things are still changing fast, but Barack Obama is beginning to take a clear lead, especially in Ohio where, with 30% of the vote counted, it’s Obama 51.9%, Romney 46.6%.

In the early stages, Obama leads

Still way too early to make any realistic predictions, but Ohio is looking really good for Obama right now. Only 2% of the vote reported, but Obama is leading by 57.3% to Romney’s 41.5%.

Florida is much closer, but with 39% of the vote reported, Obama has the edge with 50.6% to Romney’s 48.6%.
