With the re-election of Democratic incumbent Barack Obama as US President, notable Republicans have weighed in and given their respective two cents.


It is November 7 and the 2012 United States Election cycle has concluded with the victory and re-election of Democratic incumbent Barack Obama as the United States President for another four years. However, that was not the only Democratic victory. While the Republican Party/GOP have retained control of the US House of Representatives, the Democratic Party still retains control of the United States Senate; but, keep in mind that we still have the 2014 House and Senate elections that are going to take place along with elections for state governorships. As many media outlets explain, it's one of those critical “crossroads” moments for the GOP. Notable Republican figures have weighed in.
Real estate mogul Donald Trump and conservative talk radio personality Rush Limbaugh are among some of the most vocal of Obama's opponents. Trump has been one of the fiercest opponents to Obama. In the past, Trump has consistently attacked Obama on his birth records and college transcripts. He even issued a challenge to Obama: reveal his college transcripts and he will donate money to a charity of Obama's choosing. After Obama won re-election, Trump took to Twitter and talked about how the election was a farce; however, those tweets were soon deleted. Trump went to criticize the Electoral College.
Limbaugh weighed in; but, he didn't seem angry let alone as angry as Trump. He did talk about how Romney would've been great for the United States if got elected. In regards to GOP direction, Limbaugh brushed off notions that the GOP is “too white.”
Karl Rove, the chief of staff to then-US President George W. Bush, weighed in during the election in regards to who won Ohio. FOX News ended up asking the decision desk about Ohio going to Obama.
Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, the VP to then-GOP nominee Senator John McCain (AZ) in 2008, also weighed in. Palin said that she was disappointed.
Former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich, one of Romney's GOP primary rivals, also weighed in. On CNN, Gingrich admitted that he was off on his prediction that Romney was going to win. Gingrich was civil in admitting he was wrong. Also, he said that Obama ran a very effective campaign during the election race. He added that the GOP needs to take a look at itself now.
These notable GOP figures have weighed in and given their thoughts on Obama's re-election.
