What they are saying in the wake of the elections
“President Obama’s promise must now bloom. He created history in 2008 by being the first black man to be elected to the Oval office. We saw where he broke the mold again by becoming the first president in recent memory to win re-election with an economy at near moribund levels. Only time will tell.”
-William S. Peterson, retired journalist, Delray Beach
“Leadership is commonly defined as helping a group to agree on and commit to an objective. Barack Obama has failed as a leader. Rather than give us hope and change, he has given us partisanship and failed to develop consensus on solving the many pressing problems of the country, as epitomized by the coming fiscal cliff. In Massachusetts, Mitt Romney worked across the aisle and achieved consensus and action.”
-Brian Guerriero, Boynton Beach
“I’m tired now of the elections. People spoke. Move on, get on with it. I want to do other things and not to be ugly.”
-Former U.S. first lady Barbara Bush at an Austin (Texas) conference.
