Congratulations Mr. President!

The Electoral Map according to Huffington Post at 11:46pm CT. 
These numbers don't include Florida or Alaska. If Florida goes for Obama and Alaska goes for Romney, then the final tally will be 332 Obama to 206 Romney.

President Barack Obama has won a second term.

But what does that really mean?

It means that quality, affordable health care for all won. It means people with pre-existing conditions won. It means that the War on Women lost. It means that equal pay for equal work won. It means that marriage equality won. It means that civil rights for all won. It means that the auto industry won. It means that the stimulus package won. It means consumer protections won. It means that college students depending on Pell Grants and affordable student loans won. It means that science won.

It also means that fear, hate, distortions, and lies lost.

So what do we do now?

We need to get down to work. We need to demand that our Congress and President work together and do what's right for the country. The facts are the facts. There are going to have to be some cuts and some tax increases and they can't all be borne by the middle and lower classes. Let's stop the bickering about whether or not President Obama is a "real American." He is a real American and he is the President of 100% of the country.

Congratulations, Mr. President! Now get to work.
