Obama Is President Again

Posted By on Tue, Nov 6, 2012 at 9:40 PM

Mitt Romney hasn't yet conceded, but ... it's safe to say Barack Obama will grace America with another four years as our leader. According to news outlets everywhere, Obama was reelected president after winning the battleground state of Ohio.

While Romney was looking for his concession speech that he supposedly never wrote, Obama campaign immediately tweeted out a big thank-you to his supporters.

Down at the University of San Francisco, students watched as Obama was announced the winner of the presidential election -- and they were thrilled.

Ruiz Plascencia, a 20-year-old junior, told SF Weekly that "there were a lot of discrepancies in what Romney had to say -- Obama was a more viable candidate."

And Andrew Roman, an 18-year-old freshman, said he was relieved by the results. "Romney is trying to take away my rights as a gay man," he said. "Romney would be the second coming of Bush."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
