PRESIDENT OBAMA “STORMS TO (?) Victory”: Al-Jazeera

The title of a recently released Al-Jazeera article is “Barack Obama STORMS TO (?) second term” (Web-site/URL: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/americas/2012/11/2012116231930247100.html).

“Barack Obama has won the US presidential election, defeating his Republican challenger Mitt Romney”.

“The INCUMBENT president has captured at least 303 electoral votes – MORE THAN the majority of 270 required for victory in Tuesday’s (November 6, 2012) quadrennial election”. Of course, as we know, “incumbent” was a TOXIC word in the 2010 mid-term elections.

“During his victory speech in Chicago, Obama said that “the task of perfecting our union MOVES FORWARDinstead of BACKa recurring theme from the President’s 2008 campaign. “We are an American FAMILY  and we rise or fall TOGETHER as ONE nation.   the United States of America, THE BEST IS YET TO COMENow that he has won the electionthe President is STAYING POSITIVE.

“Obama said that he had CONGRATULATED (?) Romney on a HARD-FOUGHT campaign“. “The Romney family has chosen to give back to America through PUBLIC SERVICE“, which is NOBLEWell, this “campaign” WAS DEFINITELY “hard-fought”, but “congratulating” LOSERS? This is just what POLITICIANS do.

“In Boston, Romney told supporters during his concession speech that he had called Obama to congratulate him on his victory”. “This is a time of GREAT CHALLENGES for America and I pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation (?)” Does Romney TRULY mean this?

Speaking to “reporters on Tuesday morning (November 6, 2012)”, Obama told Romney: “Governor Romney, CONGRATULATIONS on A SPIRITED CAMPAIGN. WE FEEL CONFIDENT (that) we’ve got the votes to win, but IT’S GOING TO DEPEND ultimately on WHETHER those votes turn out” and most of them DIDgiven that Obama won by a 303-206 marginStill, this 97 ELECTORAL COLLEGE vote margin (Web-site/URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_election,_2012) was CLOSER than many had EXPECTED (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).

Finally, “Al Jazeera‘s Rosiland Jordan, reporting from Golden, Colorado, says voters there SHOWED NO SIGNS of ELECTION FATIGUE“. “People are VERY ENERGIZED, BOTH Republicans AND DemocratsPeople take these issues VERY SERIOUSLY and DO THEIR RESEARCH“, obviously because people are PASSIONATE about MANY issues. “We did see A LOT of people arriving in the main courthouse in Jefferson County,  with several (?) people getting out of each car”.

To concludelet’s return once again to the title: “Barack Obama STORMS TO (?) second term”“storms?” HUH? Obama only won by a margin of 303-206a margin of 97 electoral college votes (Web-site/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_election,_2012). “storms” implies ROMP/an EASY victoryBack in 2008, Obama won by a margin of 365-173a margin of 192 electoral college votesSo, Obama “stormed to (victory)” in 2008,
