#EWBC: Mitt Romney sinks without Thrace!

Pre-conference trip: dateline 7th November 2012

With Americans making up a significant proportion of the bloggers on the pre-conference trip to Thrace it was good that Barack Obama was re-elected President early this morning. Had Milt Romney managed to win, our coach would have been a pretty miserable place today!

Re-electing Obama, a black man, may be just as significant as electing him as president in 2008 in the first place.

I rather like the German version that's being spread on FB: Mitt Romney. Ohne Romney.

We are saved from a non-drinking President.
