Four years ago, DaBearsBlog endorsed Barack Obama for the Presidency of the United States. This year we abstained from making an official endorsement for a great many reasons but primarily because we can not endorse any political candidate who stands idly by and watches their constituents gunned down in movie theaters and classrooms without so much as entertaining the idea of a debate on the necessity for personal ownership of automatic weapons.
Tonight, however, we congratulate President Obama on earning his second term with a somewhat resounding victory. Even if you do not like the president’s politics we believe firmly in respecting the office of the presidency and the will of the people.
Do Chicago and other Bears fans proud, Mr. President. Serve this brilliant nation well.
