Electoral College Count Affirms Obama’s Win

Obama Feeds America SC Electoral College count affirms Obama’s win

WASHINGTON (Official Wire) — Congress made the obvious official on Friday. President Barack Obama has been re-elected.

In a joint session, Congress formally certified that Obama and Vice President Joe Biden were the winners in the November election with 332 electoral votes, well more than the 270 required. Republican Mitt Romney and his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, won 206 votes.

It’s a mostly ceremonial — yet constitutionally necessary — vote that’s mostly intriguing to political junkies and policy wonks. The count Friday lacked the suspense of the drawn-out campaign and election but was steeped in tradition.

Biden and about a dozen senators trekked across the Capitol from the Senate to the House chamber, and the vice president joined House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, on the rostrum. Senate pages carried two dark wooden boxes that contained the results of the electoral votes that had been counted in the state capitals last month. Clerks used silver letter openers to unseal the envelopes.

Taking turns, the leaders of the Senate Rules Committee — Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn. — and the top members of the House Administration Committee — Reps. Candice Miller, R-Mich., and Robert Brady, D-Pa. — read the results from each state. Biden, who presided over the session, announced the final results to applause from the scattering of House and Senate members in the chamber.

  1. They are all in together liers and cheats Ovmit won because they all cheated We need to stop this the only way is get rid of the Demacrap and Rinos have voter ID in every state and stop this cheating now

  2. Four more years of the Marxist usurper…signed, sealed and delivered.

    Civil War II anyone?

  3. I don't believe it for a minute !!! With the votes changing from Romney to obama and not changing back, I'm surprised obama didn't win by a lot more. I still say they rigged the voting machines that could be rigged like the computer programmer did for a Politician in 2000 in Florida. With that much money backing him he could do just about anything he wants.
    .

  4. And we are suppose to believe this WHY???

  5. Something is wrong with the electoral college when they affirm a worldwide, known illegal candidate and the presence of massive illegal voting. Maybe they are the ones to be taken to court to show proof why they did it…

    I understand that i am ignorant about a lot of things, but I want to know how the electors could have possibly
    have ignored al the fraud which was instrumental in Obama's victory. Some of even wrote to our states' electors to insist they take a hard look at the facts of cheating and outright criminality in this election season.
    Are they corrupt too? I think we have truly lost our country to evil.

  8. Eddie Fudd says:

    Apparently, the Electoral College did not get the message that the communists in our government, led by the "illegal alien," committed massive voter-fraud duing the 6 Nov 12 election! Do you folks think that the College is wrong in concluding that the" bummer" won?
