Congratulations Obama, that stupid cunt who said he wants to label China a currency manipulator deserves it.

Mr-Butler:

Time for some change, eh?

Nathan-YXH:

I also hoped he would win, at least everything will more or less remain the same.

心-随-悦-动:

California is so niu~ Obama is also niu~

杨璟陈璘:

Win or not has nothing to do with China, they will all be against China, containing our development.

高中这三年:

Should I be crying, or crying, or crying, or crying, or crying?

高麟vip:

Where does Romney’s confidence come from?

—————-TMD:

With Romney’s religion and excessively conservative ideology…this was inevitable.

如果我问你:

Time to buy gold.

老故事周伟思:

Whether for China or the world, I really don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

豆丁包包子:

Supporters celebrate as Barack Obama re-elected for a second term as President of the United States of America in 2012.

橡胶艺术札记:

My friends all say if he doesn’t get elected, invite him to come to China.

马马很靠谱:

Too bad, guess we won’t be able to be currency manipulators now… emoticon

最近换新英文名华楠Tiger:

Feels like this election is similar to the Taiwan elections at the beginning of the year, where those supporting China’s development winning. Romney, the DPP, a lesson in blood and tears.

朱正龙:

Presidents and company workers both needing to compete for their positions, this is a good system. Only by immediately having a sense of danger/crisis upon immediately taking office can one wholeheartedly work for the people, because there will be people poking you in the back if you don’t do well, and you can’t use attacks, reprisals, or secretly take them out. emoticon

见圳城长:

No matter who is the president, the Pentagon will always be a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and Imperialist America will always be self-serving. I’m more concerned about the results of the 17+1.

乌里_Luohong:

Won, hope Obama will cherish and make good use of God’s favor.

冷香沉醉:

Congratulations victory sign Definitely can’t let Romney mess up the America I yearn for over the next for years. Americans are sensible, relax. This planet over the next four years will become even better. This is excellent. Tonight someone will “represent” us in sending congratulations to Obama. emoticonemoticon

林小篆:

Romney had over 1 million more popular votes than Obama but still lost the Electoral College.

悲伤罐子:

From the black civil rights movement of the 60s in the 20th century to Obama being elected the first black present in the 21st century, to today, where Obama has been reelected for a second term, Americans have used only 50 years of time. On this kind of incredible ability to correct/change its society, who can still say that capitalism is decadent and degenerate? With one foot in its grave? Instead, all of those people who have said capitalism is dying have one by one passed away in history like smoke!

投资任:

Obama won the population, won the East and West coasts, won the Northeast, the Northwest; Romney won the land, won the vast interior, won the Southeast, Southwest. Americans, especially the lower classes have benefited/favor Obama’s policies and are willing to give Obama 4 more years of time. Congratulations, Obama!

尔月东升:

America elects a president, and some of our countrymen makes it seem like its their wives giving birth to a child… the worry and anticipation… and then its born… and its good news all around… Think about our own country’s matters, have you voted before…? emoticon

阅读参考:

Why do Chinese people pay attention to the United States election? It’s because of media hype, because of market attention, but at the bottom of their hearts there is also a political longing. In the face of the wave of democracy, one country cannot integrate in the world economically, and stands apart from the world system politically. With only those few friends in the entire world, whether it be dying Syria or unreliable North Korea or Castro, who often faints during his speeches.

股民朱古力:

The tragic American people, only now knowing who their president is. Only by comparing people can you know who is superior, we already knew [who our president will be] several years ago! emoticonemoticon

real陈博:

Obama reelected, looks like there’s no need to worry about Sino-American relations anymore, because the “aggressive China” Romney didn’t win. China should be lighting fireworks in celebration!

何函樨要crazy:

Faint, they cast votes, but what about our country!!

艳明_Qu:

Although it is the American election, and putting aside all political factors, I too genuinely hoped Obama would win the election. Because I rather like Obama.

共在菩提树下:

America’s first reelected president of African descent.

懒小mo桃子:

There’s nothing to be happy about, why the hell do so many people support Obama?

王瑶:

The first president to be reelected while unemployment is over 7%, making history! Ok, congratulations~ I still rather like Obama.

一隅天蓝:

America’s show has ended, now the world’s eyes turn East…

What do you think of the United States presidential election and results? Who would have been a better president? For America? For America’s relations with China?
