Obama’s re-election

Obama’s 2008 victory was not just a flash in the pan. America has now proved to the world that it is not racist as it was once thought. Could we ever expect in any country in the world a person belonging to a minority community to be elected as president and re-elected for the same position once again? No. Unlike in many Third World countries, where election results are challenged or disputed and defeats not conceded, Mitt Romney made a sporty declaration accepting defeat: This is a time of great challenges for America and I pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation.”

We can imagine how the villagers of Kogelo, in Kenya, would have reacted for Obama’s re-election. We congratulate the American voters on their courageous decision and expect Obama to live up to their expectation. — S.H. Moulana, Riyadh
