Election 2012

Being the Political Science major that I am, I have been keeping up with this year’s election for seemingly ages! It was especially important to me since it was the first Presidential election I could vote in. I previously voted in the 2010 election but this one meant more to me. But the election finally came to an end last night when President Barack Obama was reelected to a second term.

I was anticipating having to stay up until around 2 or 3 AM to hear the winner but all of the television networks projected an Obama win around 11:20 PM so my night ended earlier than expected. Some of my residents ordered pizza to celebrate the night so of course I joined them! I didn’t get to bed until 2 AM but it was worth it celebrating the historic night.

Republican Convention

For my Political Humor course we were all assigned to watch the Republican National Convention and write a paper on it, so that is exactly how I spent my night. I wasn’t in my room so I had to watch a live stream of it on Yahoo. It was kind of awkward watching it since I’m a member of Butler’s College Democrats.

The big speakers of the night were New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Ann Romney. I surprisingly enjoyed both. Christie was very bombastic and brazen and that’s what I liked about it. Romney, on the other hand, was very mellow and soft spoken, which was also nice to contrast Christie. So it ended up not being a bad night. There are two more nights to go so hopefully they are as enjoyable as the first!
