President Barack Obama wins another four years but does not have a mandate of voters, and it looks like another lame-duck president for another four years.

It was all over when Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast a few days before the election, and Mitt Romney could not maintain his momentum in the news — Obama got a big hug from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie with his visit for a photo-op, and then he takes off campaigning again.

How lucky could you be to have former President Bill Clinton to make stops in Ohio the day before the election?

Obama’s acceptance speech in Chicago included the same old promises as his speech in 2008, and I don’t believe he will ever work with the Republican speaker of the House because a leopard never changes his spots.

The American people will again rise up and defeat the Democratic majority in the Senate in 2014, as they did in the 2010 elections in the House and Senate.
