Finance Fox Weekend Recap – Money Talks & Obama For Another Four!

obama prevails, 2012 us election, barack obama, president

On Tuesday it was finally decided and America chose President Barack Obama for another four years, and he gladly accepted another term in the toughest job in the world. If you followed election night on Tuesday, even here in Canada the media coverage was pretty insane, twitter was going nuts, and even the local radio stations were doing hourly updates on who’s leading at the polls. Never the less, I’m glad this hype is over. Billions of dollars were spent on each campaign respectively, the process took a whole year, and a guy who some projected to lose came out as the winner in a landslide. So, now that’s over, we all can go back our homes and live our lives for another for years. Aside from that and just for shits and giggles, I called this win roughly three months ago, and clearly projected President Obama to come back for his second term. Some of you didn’t agree with me, and that’s fine, we all can’t agree on everything. In case you forgot, here was my 2012 Presidential election projection post.

Aside from the election stuff, in case you haven’t noticed the weekend is here. I don’t know about you, but this week flew by for me, and here we are at the weekend. Enjoy your weekend and don’t forget this Sunday, November 11th is Remembrance Day - a day to remember those who fought for all the freedoms we enjoy today. For those of you working in the public sector, I’m overly jealous that you’ll have Monday off!!! :)
