It's four more years in office for President Barack Obama. America re-elected him yesterday for a second term. His supporters were ecstatic while awaiting his official acceptance speech at his election-night watch party in Chicago, and it's apparent that the president appreciates them. Obama tweeted, "This happened because of you. Thank you," and it's already the most retweeted Twitter message of all time.

President Obama again thanked supporters and voters by starting off his speech saying that our country "moves forward because of you." He also had meaningful words for his wife of 20 years, Michelle Obama, and daughters Sasha and Malia, who all joined Barack onstage. He said, "Michelle, I have never loved you more. I have never been prouder to watch the rest of America fall in love with you, too." Barack then spoke to Sasha and Malia, saying he's seen them grow into two smart and beautiful young women, but joked that "for now, one dog's probably enough." See Obama give his speech alongside his supportive family and fans now!
