Barack Obama has been reelected U.S. president, defeating Republican challenger Mitt Romney in a contest that proved to be the most expensive campaign in history. But as the world’s media reacts, and as foreign leaders offer their congratulations to Obama, Global Public Square wants to know what you think.
Was Obama the right choice? What do you think the impact will be on where you live? What went wrong for Romney? And what is the future of the Republican Party?
We’re looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

I'll give it to you short & sweet....His victory means nothing to me.
Briefly...nothing. He does not define who I am.
What does Obama's victory mean to you?–Means he is a great Liar and went to a great acting school–
It is a marvel and a wonder, that I live to see this day when American racism and social inequality is being rejected and its core conspirators soundly defeated. A changing demographic in US consisting of a new rising generation of better educated, open minded and rationale generation, will decide the destination of future America. This, I am very glad.
H. L. Menken stated that democracy is a process in which the stupid electorate can ask for anything "free" they wish for, and then the system gives them what they demand "good and hard". As for myself, I will get filthy rich, whether markets go up (long) or crash (short). See you at the Cannes festival, enjoy!
