The Battle for US Presidency is over. President Barack Obama wins yet again.

It was a cliff-hanger campaign in which the Republican Challenger, Mitt Romney, put all his energies and all his arguments to counter the performance and promises of Barack Obama.

Romney had his logic and he almost seemed to have convinced the majority  by a slender margin with his arguments – but , Barack Obama based his campaign on solid Performance. Therefore, he has won a well deserved win - with a convincing Margin.

2008  to 2012, America has of course progressed a lot under Obama’s leadership. The Auto Industry is just one proof of it. The Job scenario is another. Ending the war in Iraq and Afghanistan does go well with the Americans. Bin laden’s annihilation is yet another. Jobs and health insurance for the Middle class is a definite crowd and vote  puller. Women’s health insurance is especially so.

All in all – President Obama is back in office – and promises to put US on the TOP.

Here are some excerpts from his victory speech:

Ø  Democracy in a nation of 300 million can be noisy and messy and complicated. We have our own opinions. Each of us has deeply held beliefs. And when we go through tough times, when we make big decisions as a country, it necessarily stirs passions, stirs up controversy.

Ø  These arguments we have are a mark of our liberty. We can never forget that as we speak people in distant nations are risking their lives right now just for a chance to argue about the issues that matter, the chance to cast their ballots like we did today.

Ø  We want our children to live in an America that isn’t burdened by debt, that isn’t weakened by inequality, that isn’t threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet.

Ø  We believe in a generous America, in a compassionate America, in a tolerant America.

Ø  Progress will come in fits and starts. It’s not always a straight line. It’s not always a smooth path. 

Ø  Tonight you voted for action, not politics 

Ø  You elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours.

Ø  The role of citizen in our democracy does not end with your vote. America’s never been about what can be done for us. It’s about what can be done by us together through the hard and frustrating, but necessary work of self-government. That’s the principle we were founded on.

Ø  The freedom which so many Americans have fought for and died for come with responsibilities as well as rights. And among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. That’s what makes America great.

Ø  I have never been more hopeful about America. And I ask you to sustain that hope.

Ø  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.

Ø  It doesn’t matter whether you’re black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you’re willing to try.

Ø  Progress is not always a straight line

Ø  Thank You America.

Well.  His plans and promises for the future – Obama has made clear in his pre-election speeches. His tweets on these are in my previous Blog Post (Click on this URL : ).

Please do take time to read the Obama Election Tweets. They show how, many of the Indian Politicians need to mould their ways in fighting Elections.

They are impressive.

Hearty Congratulations,  Mr.President ! Wish You and America all the success. We look forward to the Best of relations between India and America.
