 In November 2008, [[offtopic:​Barack Obama]] was elected as the nation'​s first black president (Morgan Freeman doesn'​t count). With Obama possessing the largest popular mandate since 1988, the Republicans decided to recognise this and constructively work with him. Then after wiping the laugh spittle off their monitors they decided to criticise everything from the way he took the presidential oath on out. Republicans spent the next 4 years complaining that Obama was a gay atheist socialist extremist, while Democrats spent the next 4 years complaining that he wasn'​t. In November 2008, [[offtopic:​Barack Obama]] was elected as the nation'​s first black president (Morgan Freeman doesn'​t count).

-Obama decided to reform healthcare, something that no American president has ever failed at doing, except all of them. The plan was scuppered with the death of Ted Kennedy, the Republicans pointing out that him having healthcare hadn't stopped him from dying, and Republican supermodel Scott "​Charlie"​ Brown won Massachusetts by using his abs to blind all the Democratic voters into not finding the polling stations. This was followed in 2010 by the Republicans winning everything everywhere ​(including Obama'​s old Senate seat, but only a couple downstate Illinoians know or care about that) with the '​help'​ of the Tea Party movement and its unerring ability to find Republican candidates who were certain to win, and then primary them. +Obama decided to reform healthcare, something that no American president has ever failed at doing, except all of them.

 When the nomination was finally settled, the campaign itself began. Mitt Romney decided to appease disgruntled Ron Paul supporters by making his VP somebody of the same ethnic group as Paul--people with two first names instead of a first name and surname. Paul Ryan therefore became the VP candidate, at least until he was hospitalised after being beaten to a pulp by Joe Biden and thus vanished from the airwaves for the remainder of the campaign. Clint Eastwood shouted at an empty chair which Romney offered to fill with one of the women from out of the collection he had pressed in binders. The American ambassador in Benghazi was killed by a mob, after which Romney complained that Obama had not provided enough horses and bayonets to protect him from terrorists. Obama had a famous encounter with a normally Republican voting pizza place guy who gave him a bearhug. The Republicans kicked themselves for not having nominated Herman Cain, turns out that pizza //did// play a crucial role in deciding the election. Obama had a disappointing debate performance due to being possessed by the ghost of John Denver and then a better two. The media constantly went on and on about how close it was. Meanwhile Nate Silver quietly pointed out that at no point across the whole campaign had Romney led, and was promptly ignored. Then on election night Obama won by a sizeable amount and the media pointed out how surprising it was, causing TV viewing figures in AH.com households to drop overnight due to the number of bricks thrown at TV screens. When the nomination was finally settled, the campaign itself began.

-Although Romney did win the first debate by quite a bit, which give him a chance of victory....if the election was held on October 4th. 
  
 Far more importantly from an AH.com perspective,​ in Massachusetts Scott "​Charlie"​ Brown had the football pulled away from him by Elizabeth Warren, an actual proper left-wing person, in America, no really. A new era seems set to dawn, at least until the next election puts everything back again like it always does. And let the 2016 speculation begin! Far more importantly from an AH.com perspective,​ in Massachusetts Scott "​Charlie"​ Brown had the football pulled away from him by Elizabeth Warren, an actual proper left-wing person, in America, no really.

-The Aftermath had Meghan McCain and the Moderates whining (albeit correctly) that the Republicans had gone to far to the right and the Tea Party complaining that they had gone too far to the left, presumably causing a future Republican civil war. Also, Karl Rove still thinks Romney has a chance of winning Ohio, Virginia, Florida and Pennsylvania.
