  • RaChel

  • Sal

    YEAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3

  • jasmine

    So filthy rich people are happy. Yeah they get to hang at the white house, Obama gets to hang with the celebs and go on the usual talk shows. Oprah, Beyounce, Jayz and other celebs get to sleep at the white house. Whens the last time average joe slept at the white house?

  • GMAFB!

    @raspberry: Why not? They pay taxes. They’re citizens. They contribute to their country and do a lot of charity work. They have EVERY right to voice their opinions. Freedom of speech, remember? That applies to everybody. Not just the ones who agree with you. This argument that “celebrities” shouldn’t voice their opinions is ludicious and absurd, to say the least. They’re people too. OBAMA/BIDEN 2012!!!!!!

  • Go Obama

    OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG I AM SO FREAKINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG Happy right now

    Congrats Obama……….*Happy Dance*

  • RobMe NOT

    @jasmine: Riiiiight. Because “Poor” Mitt Romney doesn’t hang out with “rich people”, right? For frick sakes, he IS one of the “rich people”!!!! Gosh you’re dumb and so out of touch.

  • Stacie

    So Happy I voted for the right man . I am a black female who did Not wanna be sent back to the 1950 ‘s ! Thank you America .

  • raspberry

    @GMAFB!:

    you are absolutely right, I totally agree with you

  • Kaya

    YESYESYES GOBAMA!

  • Chelsea

    LOL at Niall Horan. He’s Irish :P
    But still, the world should be celebrating because America impacts all of us if we like it or not.

  • jasmine

    @RobMe NOT: He’s a businessman. He knows how to make money. Why so rude?

  • rachel

    some of these celebrities have no idea of politics.

  • http://aol patti

    Born and raised in CA. Not proud of this state any more. Liberals have taken over.

  • chris

    @Stacie:

    That’s why he won.

  • Sleep Tight Everyone!

    @rachel: Neither do some Americans (who voted for the lying, 10-faced, bigoted, homophobic, war-happy-Muslim-hating-Latino/Mexican-deporting snob). Thankfully enough though, the smarter class won in the end. #4MoreYears!

  • YESSSS

    @patti: Gosh Republicans are such self-entitled beaches! What makes you think America “belongs” to the Bitter Red? What the heck do you mean “Liberals have taken over”?

  • on concession speech

    I didn’t want romney to win, but i have to say he is a gracious loser.

  • Dave Franco

    Twitter went crazy nuts. Obama is the right man, another four years to help build this country. That said, Celebrity endorsements piss me off.

    FYI: Somewhere out there, Donald Trump is crying in shame; he’s in denial.

  • Dave Franco

    Mitt Romney is a business man, not a leader. I think Ron Paul would have done better against Obama. Just my opinion.

  • groundcontrol

    Thanks, Jared and Chris, for compiling these tweets. Sweet of you.
    .
    Great night for the country.

  • Never Forget!

    @Sleep Tight Everyone!: It was MUSLIMS who tried to kill us and brought the terror to NYC. So what if people don’t like muslims?! It is understandable!!!!

  • an opinion

    Laugh all you want but President Obama got a lot of young folks to vote this year. IMO partly thanks to the likes of Katy Perry and Jay Z

  • TaxHikesAhead

    I don’t want to hear any whining when all of you filthy rich hollywoodies have to pay ginormously higher taxes. You deserve it and you also deserve my scorn and boycott of all your “work”. I won’t be watching or paying to see you or hear your tunes etc. Just remember that Obama hasn’t created any jobs nor does he allow business to flourish to create them. We as a nation are sunk, all because you had to re-elect an incompetent teleprompter-reader who is NOT a leader.

    We are broke and his plan is to make us even worse off financially. A major stock market crash looms within months. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

    Karma, people…karma.

  • nico07

    I’m a brainwashed celebrity YEAH! I have no idea what the issues are but love to have a black man in the White House because of Civil Rights and stuff! Who cares what people think, I can put down every Republican and Romney because I am a stuck up, self righteous, ignorant, rich celebrity! Oh wait, did Obama say he was going to tax me a little more during a debate? I don’t remember hearing that…

  • re romney

    @TaxHikesAhead:

    romney only cared about the value of a stock. he wasn’t an actually business manager. he never ran a business. he ran a financial company…not the same thing as running a business. business people can figure this out and obama set him up in their debate to lay that out.

  • re romney

    romney also would have a worse time with congress than obama was having because romney lacked the political experience. i would have voted for a republican if he was qualified for the job. but you haven’t had qualified candidates. bush wasn’t qualified.

  • re romney

    neither was mccain or sarah palin.

    you had a chance with ron paul, i know you hate that idea, but you blew it. ron paul was the real threat to obama. not romney.

  • nico07

    @re romney: (palm to face) The lack of education you have toward Mitt Romney is pretty astounding.

  • booboo

    @Dave Franco: america isnt ready for ron paul

  • re romney

    i saw all i needed to see of him in 2008. i saw the republican debates. he stuck out like a sore thumb. i was decided against him from that day on. he toned it a down a bit…but he couldn’t hide his arrogance and bullying attitude and paul ryan was worse as far as arrogance and could be a bully but not quite sure. just can’t stand it. that’s why people hate bush and sarah palin. bullies.

  • nico07

    @Stacie: Mitt would not have sent you back to the 50′s. Hopefully Obama can lay out an agenda that involves paying off the national debt and creating policies that create jobs. As much as his ads toted that he created some 5 million jobs this was not true. You can lay into the Republican’s all you want, but they do represent half of our countries views. Congrats Obama, now get to work!

  • re romney

    also romney would have put us back on cheney-bush’s plan. hell no. they were laying the groundwork for war back in 2000 at the republican national convention. i’m not giving them another chance to do that again. they put american lives and LOTS OF MONEY at risk. they are not welcome back as far as i am concerned.

  • re romney

    @nico07:

    the lack of education you have about business is all that is relevent. i have it, you don’t.

  • re romney

    also romney didnt’ have a plan. he just bashed obama instead of talking about solutions. it makes me think he wasn’t qualified.

  • Lyin’ Ryan, Mitt The Twit

    @on concession speech: I wouldn’t call him a “gracious loser”, I’d call him a great LIAR. He’s had years of practice. That man wouldn’t know the word sincerity if it was growing on his nose. 47% of the people he called ‘lazy moochers’ are having the last laugh.

  • Are you kidding me?!

    @Never Forget!: You are a disgusting bigot. How completely ignorant of you to blame an entire religion for the actions of a minority. Should I then assume ALL Americans are hateful bigots too? Speaking of killing; who’s going to take responsibility for what happend in Iraq and all the innocent people who died there because of it? You know what, you prick, to those people, YOU are the terrorist! It works both ways. Using your dumb, senseless logic, all Germans should be demonized too because of the actions of Hitler. And you say it’s understandable for people to hate Muslims, well guess what, because of people like you, it’s understandable for the world to hate America. How about that? See how that works? THINK. You have a brain, USE IT.

  • melanie

    BRACE YOURSELVES! AS IT IS CLEAR NONE OF YOU REALLY KNOW HOW OBAMA WILL BRING YOU DOWN. FIRST OFF, EVERYONE WHO HAS A 401K PLAN, IRA, OR ANY TYPE OF RETIREMENT PLAN NO MATTER WHAT AGE, HE WANTS TO TAKE HALF OF WHAT YOU HAVE WORKED FOR AND GIVE IT BACK TO THE GOVERNMENT TO COVER FOR ALL THE MONEY HE SPENT FOR HIS VACATIONS, DAUGHTERS TRIP TO MEXICO, AND FAILED PROJECTS. 2ND THERE ARE GOING TO BE MORE PEOPLE UNEMPLOYED BECAUSE OF OBAMACARE, IT IS NOT FREE AND WILL COST MORE MONEY, SO ALL THE CELEBRITIES AND EVERYONE THAT VOTED FOR HIM WILL GET A REALITY CHECK WITH SH#t HITS THE FAN….OH AND THE C.I.A. JUST RELEASED PROOF ON HOW HE LIED ABOUT THE ATTACK IN SYRIA AND THAT PROOF IS ENOUGH FOR HIM TO GET IMPEACHED. WHY CAN’T THE WHITE HOUSE PROVIDED A LEGITIMATE BIRTH CERTIFICATE THAT SHOWS HE WAS BORN IN AMERICA? HOW HARD IS THAT? I FEEL BAD FOR CELEBRITIES THAT WILL LOSE TONS OF MONEY AS NOW OUR COUNTRY IS GOING TO FALL AND END UP LIKE GREECE…WHY DON’T YOU ALL READ ABOUT IT. YOU MIGHT END UP SHOCKED LIKE ME. I WAS AN OBAMA SUPPORTER AT FIRST, UNTIL I STARTED FINDING OUT ALL THE TRUTH AND HOW THIS COUNTRY WILL FALL. CHECK OUT DAILYCALLER.COM……..NOW THAT HE SPENT ALL OUR FEDERAL RESERVE MONEY, WHERE WILL HE GET THE MONEY FOR ALL THE THINGS HE SAYS HE WANTS TO CHANGE IN AMERICA? ANSWER: FROM YOUR PAYCHECK AND RETIREMENT & ANY SAVINGS….SO WHEN YOU ALL OF A SUDDEN CANT AFFORD THE THINGS YOU WANT AND NEED, PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK CUZ YOU VOTED FOR HIM.

  • http://justjared anymouse

    The reason why “stars” don’t have to worry, because they have money already. Most felt he should be voted for because of the color of his skin. Most would say to investigate, but really couldn’t because the media hides his crimes against America!!!

    @jasmine: @melanie: @ melanie

    You must have been listening to Fox News, SHUT UP
