Icheoku says thank you America for once again trumping rabid racism and rising up to do what was right and so deservedly testimonial. Without mincing words or in any way guilty of equivocation, Icheoku reiterates that President Barack Obama did enough in his first four years in office to earn a second term and therefore rightly got the nod for a second term. Congratulations to the America people for once again getting it right. Icheoku does not ride the skin-color train in our support for BO, never did and would not in the future do. Icheoku makes bold to say that were President Obama a failure in his first term or the option provided Americans by Mitt Romney's candidature better, Icheoku would have ditched the president without any hesitation whatsoever. But the president did enough during his first term to deserve another tenancy at the White House and Mitt Romney was simply a politically over-damaged goods which offered no meaningful alternative. Icheoku and millions of other Americans agree that President Barack Hussein Obama merited his reelection and that his four more years renewed contract with America was well earned. Therefore Icheoku gives thumbs up to President Barack Hussein Obama for effectively and decisively defending his first term in office and based on his stellar records that were both far reaching and revolutionary. Well-done O'Bama!
Then the same candidate Mitt Romney was demolished by Senator John McCain during the Republican Party primaries in 2008 before McCain himself was in turn destroyed by President Barack Obama and you wonder if he got what it takes to win the presidency, why did he lose to McCain then? Further Mitt Romney's Mormon religion did not help matters either as millions of evangelical Christians including American Pastor Bill Graham until very close to the election, had branded Mormon a cult. Then Mitt Romney forgot that there is a reason why records are kept and that despite erasing and destroying all his computer files when he served as Governor of Massachusetts, that some of those records survived in other places. Then followed the Republican Party's scorch-earth primaries where he was tagged a "vulture capitalist" and such other revelations about him surfaced and stuck. Does Icheoku need to add that Mitt Romney's mouth "runneth over" and that he was suffering from diarrhea of the mouth the campaign leading to so many unforgivable misspeaks. Principal among these infamous words that oozed out of his mouth was that he is an "acute conservative" who shows no mercy? Then came his infamous video where he was chastising poor Americans - the 47%, whom he accused of being "TAKERS." This 47% video proved an atom bomb for his presidential ambition. And then his boisterous 'I will repeal OBAMACARE the first day in office while cleverly maintaining a selective amnesia that his then "ROMNEYCARE" or "Romney I don't care" or "Romney, I regret my Care" was a precursor of OBAMACARE and that the same advisers worked on both legislation. His so many flip-flopping on issues became so rampant that Americans began wondering if indeed this man was who he pretends or presents himself to be.
A big red flag was raised when he refused to release his tax records on his over $250 million net-worth/earnings with millions of Americans wondering what was he hiding? He also hid money in overseas offshore accounts both in Cayman Islands and Switzerland and you wonder what is wrong with American banks in his eyes and whether such an investor in foreign companies was patriotic enough to be an American president? Then factor in the companies he kept including Donald Trump, Rush Limbaugh, Sheldon Adelson etc. Icheoku queries which right thinking presidential candidate would accept a public endorsement from the straggly-haired billionaire Donald Trump when the issue of his being a too wealthy out of touch multi-millionaire with offshore bank accounts was seriously bogging his campaign? The same lack of judgment by Mitt Romney made him tie down his dog Seamus on a car roof for a 12 hour vacation journey. The same penchant for non-nuanced judgment made him declare that American auto industry should go bankrupt? Ditto FEMA, Planned Parenthood etc which he promised to de-fund. Then came his selection of wacko-doodle Paul Ryan as his running mate and you wonder what the joker was in that decision; needless to say that his campaign never fully recovered following that uninformed and reckless pick of such an anti-people candidate. That Mitt Romney endorsed candidates who wanted to "legitimize" rape in America and refused to renounce or denounce them told so much story about where his Mormon heart truly was - that he too is an anti women candidate?
This is a guy who was questioning why airplanes windows does not open and you wonder if he has mush for brains not to know the ramification or why airplanes have compressed air? Yet despite such guffaw, no one including Donald Trump, demanded to see his college transcripts? The rest they say is now history as the candidate who self-inflicted extensive injuries to himself failed to recover from the damage and his injuries followed him into and through the election and is likely to provide him company for the rest of his life. Icheoku says that Mitt Romney's candidacy has been irreparably damaged and the only option starring him in the face now is to retire and quit from active partisan politics for good. The educated and more civilized Americans chose wisely and rejected a fluke, a fake and a phony; who did not win any state as a matter of factily speaking but got only those states which naturally votes red and where people voted against Obama? Icheoku is emphatic that those red states did not vote for Romney; they only voted against "THAT ONE" who is occupying "their" White House and wanted him out by all and any means necessary. They do not like Mitt Romney either but were prepared to live with his presidency because his skin color is in sync with their idea of an American president but not otherwise as it appertains to Obama.
Mitt Romney's defeat had company as added to the also-defeated column, include the Republican Party as a brand; which has now morphed into a fully wacko anti non-white peoples party. A Republican Party which has been hijacked by Rush Limbaugh and his Tea Party hound dogs and is being asphyxiated by their far right extremist non compromising viewpoints. To say that these rabid hyenas have driven away all manners of moderation and reasonableness in the Republican party sounds cliched. Then came the shattering of the myth of Karl Rove with all the senate seats he went for lost and millions of Super Pac (GPS) money gambled away without any return on the investment. The Michelin tire-man Rush Limbaugh, whose toxic radio talk-show apparently has no influence, admitted he is delusional to the contrary, failed woefully trying to coral votes for the Mitt Romney. Icheoku somewhat believes that he is partly instrumental to Mitt Romney's loss as people associated the Mitt to this blow-hot talking robot. Needless to say that all past candidates Rush Limbaugh ever threw his support for lost their previous elections too including party primaries. Icheoku says it is about time the Republican Party unshackles itself from Rush Limbaugh's vice hold and fire him from being their "titular head if they want to reinvent themselves and become once more viable?"
This election was also a defeat for angry old white American males who are stuck in the fifties America and who refuse to acknowledge that dynamism as an English word could still be found in the lexicon. Apparently America has since moved on and without them or rather left them behind and these people populate the heartland all the way to the deep dirty south. Icheoku says needless to add that in these Republican red states are found ten of America's poorest, stupidest, dumbest, least developed, least educated states and provide home to hillbillies and hicks of America, who are so far away removed from civilization with some of them still holding out on mountains and in caves in West Virginia and Kentucky like the Taliban of Afghanistan? So now tell Icheoku how a hillbilly holed up in the Appalachian mountains of West Virgin would know that in today's America, a Lesbian could and was elected a senator from the state of Wisconsin or that Whites are fast becoming a minority population in America?
Also defeated and now captive of the election is the red pig Donald Trump, who is now seeing red and screaming blue murder that despite all his racist pranks and crown as birther-in-chief, that "THAT ONE" was chosen over his bigotry and hatred and emerged victorious in the election. So also is the cross-dressing and philandering former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani whose uninformed Benghazi pontifications left much to be desired. Boy, what a concoction these people must have suffered as a result of the election and their heads now whirling out off sync like a Kansas tornado? Icheoku must also mention these haters supreme pontiff generalissimo, Senator Mitch McConnell, who was denied his wish to ensure that Obama was a one term president. Lets hope that he can now work with the president to get America's business going, now that his previously only obstructive reason - to deny the president a second term, has apparently by reason of the election become mute. Senator John McCain half-heartily supported Mitt Romney's campaign and therefore was technically defeated twice - one in 2008 and now; admitted that privately, he most likely cherished the fact of Mitt's defeat as it will tell so badly of him if the guy he defeated in 2008 Republican Primaries in turn defeated the guy who defeated him then in the presidential election.
This election 2012 analysis would not be complete without specifically thanking certain people that played pivotal role in the success of Tuesday, November 6, 2012. Above all is God Almighty who decreed President Obama's reelection long before the ballots were cast. That Hurricane Sandy happened exactly when it did was not just a natural occurring coincidence, if you get Icheoku's drift. Like the economic crisis that sank Senator John McCain's 2008 quest for the White House, Hurricane Sandy intervened to stop the madness that was to be a Mitt Romney's nearly inevitable presidency as the On High knows what is best for her children and Mitt Romney's presidency was not one of them. Icheoku is convinced that if it would have taken turning President Barack Obama into a "white man" to enable him win a second term, God would have done so; but HE figured out that the hurricane would simply achieve the objective and so did not "Michael Jackson" the President to make his skin more acceptable to these skin-color voters.
Icheoku is grateful to the American people for rejecting fantastical Mitt Romney and for sticking with what is real with their reelection of the president. Icheoku also appreciates President Bill Clinton for "giving up his voice in the service of his president." His effort as "Secretary of explaining stuff" paid off abundantly, especially among those baby-boomer white men in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida and for this his legacy endures. Hopefully Hillary Clinton will be elected in 2016 as the first American female president to take over the country when President Barack Hussein Obama second term ends. Icheoku says it will be hers to take then as the new coalition of real Americans including women, blacks, Latinos, Asians, young people and some reasonable white males have proved themselves as the winning team and will gladly throw their support to her, so why not? Icheoku's gratitude also goes to the Carter guy, President Jimmy Carter's grandson, James Carter IV, for that 47% video wherein Mitt Romney truly disclosed his disdain for almost half of American citizens.
The candidate himself, President Obama, did not disappoint in the effort to reelect him as he quickly recovered from the first debate and was on fire throughout the campaign cycle culminating to his glorious reelection. His vice president Joey Biden is equally acknowledged for fighting vigorously in the reelection campaign, particularly for his "malarkey" and demolition of that extremist fundamentalist Paul Ryan during their one and only debate. A stellar debate performance which sounded a death kernel for the dreadful Paul Ryan's ambition, a man who for most part, reminds Icheoku of Julius Caesar's Cassius the conspirator. Then added the Hollywood and music greats led by George Clooney, Madonna, Springsteen, Jay-Z, Kate Perry, Tyler Perry for their tireless believe in the president. Two Republicans, Colin Powell is acknowledged for bravely standing up and taking a firm stand that Mitt Romney is not a viable alternative to the president and New York Mayor Bloomberg for his endorsement of the president. Oprah Winfrey was a no-show this time for most part - may be the rumored cat-fight between her and First Lady Michelle appears to hold some credibility? Team reelect President Barack Hussein Obama 2012 led by Jim Messina and the two Davids - Axelrod and Plouffe, and their support staff, are now the new go-to-men as far as electioneering politics is concerned in America; so move over Karl Rove Inc. Icheoku says these political strategists and tacticians are magicians for lack of any other better word to explain what they were able to pull off in this 2012 reelection of the president, despite the near-impossible and improbable circumstances they found themselves, especially with an economy that has defied almost every solution thrown in the midst. To these people Icheoku says thank you, thank you and thank you.
Icheoku admonishes the Denise Helms of Turlock California and all other racist Americans entertaining or sharing the thought that "may be President Obama will be assassinated this term" or who "wouldn't mind a bit if someone assassinated Obama," to please sheath their swords as they lick their wounds of last November 6th shellacking. However, Icheoku warns that in the event their evil wish or desire or plot ever comes to pass, America will burn and possibly shake to its foundations. Fortunately enough though, these racist purveyors of hate and mongers of bigotry in America, like the whoring daughter of Eve, Denise Helms, are in the minority as the majority who elected President Barack Hussein Obama last November, continue to pray and wish him well and no weapon fashioned by the anarchists would prosper where the God's anointed one is. These animals forgot that no one ever gets into power except it was ordained by God and while they pretend to read the bible, they simply forgot the story of David. Anyway, Icheoku calls on Denise Helms to go jump off.
Unbeknownst to these maga-dogs, America has a new majority - the coalition of the real Americans, made up of 40% white people, 66% women, 99% black people, 76% Asian people, 89% Native Americans and 71% Latinos who called the bluff of those racist angry white people and told them to shove it by reelecting President Barack Obama for a second term. It is called democracy and the majority rules, period. Their only option now is to recognize the changed demography of America and be more accommodating of other skin colors in this nation of immigrants, irrespective of when any one's ancestors joined the Union or made it to the shores either through Mayflower from Europe, dinghy off Florida Keys from the Caribbeans and South America, as a stow in a shipping containers across the Pacific from Asia or as forced slaves in chains and shackles from Africa or across the desert boarders of Arizona and other southwestern states from Latin America as well as our northern boarder of Canada. Alternatively, let every body self-deport back to wherever they came from starting with the first people to breach the boarders back to Europe as no Indian ever gave those pilgrims visas or immigration papers to come here. But until then, we all must learn to live with each other and tolerate one another as one indivisible and equal American, driven with just one purpose in mind - to make our lives better and according to one aphorism, that which hungers a pregnant woman also hungers the man who impregnated her.
No one came to America because he or she hates America, hence the need for sensible immigration reform to make those living under the shadow's lives more livable. Icheoku says it is rather very arrogant for some of these white people to think that just because their forebears first sailed to this shores on a ship, that excused the illegality of their violating Native Americans territorial space or makes them superior to those who later trekked through the southern deserts of Arizona to reach this shores or who cramped in a dingy and risked their lives on the south Atlantic waters to get here. Instead let us all join the president in recommitting ourselves to the American ideals of a land welcoming of immigrants; that there is no blue or red states of America but one United States of America. That we either swim together or we drown together and in unison declare that the process moves forward towards making America a better place and towards perfecting our union, In the president's own words, "The task of perfecting our union moves forward" and Icheoku concurs. Overall, the $6 billion total cost of this election 2012 was money well spent as it purchased a FORWARD looking America where progressive thoughts and ideas would rule supreme. Moreso it was money infused in the economy as the services provided were not outsourced; except that some of those Mitt Romney's posters, flyers and t-shirts probably were printed and manufactured in one of his plants in China or what do you expect from an out-sourcer in chief? Anyway, congratulations President Barack Hussein Obama on your reelection and may the Almighty continue to guide your every step during the next four years IJN, Amen.
