Queerty Calls It: Obama Wins A Second Term

UPDATE: CNN, MSNBC, The Daily Beast and Buzzfeed have all called the presidential election for Barack Obama.

Original Story (10:45pm): The networks are bound by an code of honor not to call the election until after the polls close on the West Coast, but you can only deny reality for so long. With Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Colorado, Michigan and New Hampshire in his column, and guaranteed wins waiting to come in from California, Washington and Oregon, Barack Obama has won a second term as president.

Mitt Romney would have to win everything on the board at this point to win (although Florida is a dead heat), and that’s just about as likely to happen as his winning the Mr. International Leather title.

Time’s up for Mitt, no more attacks on the 47 percent and equality for gay Americans. The game’s over except for the counting.

      Care to place bets on how long it is before he ignores GLBT issues – again?

      @Katbox: How silly of me… just because he made all those promises before and ignored them till he needed support once again. Quite cynical of me to believe that past performance could tell me anything about his character.

      @Rockery: Remember your feelings of superiority when you’re on the unemployment line. The most anti-business president in history just got re-elected. Woohoo!

      The re-election of the most gay-friendly President in US history, Barack Obama, sends a clear political message to both political parties: It’s politically smart to embrace those 10% of voters who are gay, lesbian, or bisexual (and by extension their friends and families).

      Romney’s budget didn’t balance. He was relying on people like you who make these assumptions. Romney didn’t have a plan, other than to stash his money overseas. Send jobs overseas too.

      @redspyder: Did I miss something? Didn’t Obama endorse same-sex marriage and end “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” more than any president has ever accomplished for this community?

      Glad he won. With Obama, the U.S. State Department under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has done a nice job supporting the human rights of GLBT people internationally.

      @Chris Bull: Ah, but those supposedly don’t count. If I remember rightly, the reasons given were that he doesn’t talk about gay issues all the time, he didn’t waste effort trying to get a DOMA repeal through Congress, ENDA hasn’t passed, and he waited for actual legislation repealing the DADT law rather than illegally bypassing it with executive orders.

      In other words, he’s a mere human and has to worry about *everybody,* not just us, rather than being a single-minded wizard.
