The newly re-elected president had a busy morning returning calls to world leaders who had sent messages of congratulations, according to a White House statement.
"In each call, he thanked his counterpart for their friendship and partnership thus far and expressed his desire to continue close cooperation moving ahead," according to the statement.
Not everyone got a call returned by President Obama, mind you. The statement notes the president returned "some" of the messages personally.
Here's a list of who got called:
Prime Minister Julia Gillard of Australia
President Dilma Rousseff of Brazil
Prime Minister Stephen Harper of Canada
President Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia
President Mohammed Morsi of Egypt
President Francois Hollande of France
Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of India
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel
NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen
King Abdullah bin Abd al-Aziz of Saudi Arabia
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey
Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kingdom
I'm sure Obama put Israel in its place I'm glad to see him stand up to the zionists. Iran has as much of a right to a big bomb as they do
I would love to read a transcript of Obama's phone call with Netanyahu!
Hopefully, he told this idiot to shut up and behave! Four more years Netanyahu will have to wait for his vengence! I hope the next four years brings much more "daylight" between the US and this war mongering tiny country! Romney didn't win his chance for a new war!
Romney doesn't even know where half these countries are, foreign policy not being his strong suit.
Romney knows where these countries are, he sent many American jobs to these countries!
Funny how Romney's "message" suddenly changed when his "47% comments" were made public! Suddenly, he stopped talking about the "job creators" (who need tax relief) and began to use the term "middle class" for the first time in his campaign! The GOP has no soul, only greed! Bush proved it, Romney would do it again with no conscience!
As it turned out Romney didn't have any strong suit. He spent the last 7 years flip/flopping from the position of the day.
Message to all Paki. Never forget who we are. We have no loyalty. Even if you are in US, do not forget Islam and demand for Islamic homeland in US. It shall be known as Pakistan II.
STOP DRINKING COW'S URINE ....... & STOP EATING COW'S POTTY ........THESE ARE HOLY ACTS AS PER HINDU RELIGION..... GET SOBER IDIOT
Pakistan is still waiting for call from US President. Paki do not hear sweet music. Aid....Aid.......Billions of $$$$$$$$
YOU ARE AN IDIOT & COW'S URINE DRUNK ...... FYI PAKISTAN PAID MOST PRICE .......LOST MORE THEN 40000 PEOPLE INCLUDING 7000 SOLDIERS ....... WHICH IS MORE THEN COMBINE ALL NATO COUNTRIES & US LOSS.
STOP DRINKING COW'S URINE HINDU .... GET SOBER
Pakistan insults US President Obama by not sending congratulatory message. Keeps mum.
I'm impressed that Obama got support from the leaders of Russia, China and Venzuela. These are all countries that wish us no good, but like that Obama got reelected. Ever wonder why?
I wonder why Pakistan was the only country that voted in polls more for Romney than Obama out of 22 countries in a BBC world poll. Must be because he is Muslim.
For Paki NObama
Pak voted for Romney because they know their old tricks wont work with Obama and they always someone new in white house so they can start out from square one same and same applies to Israel too
They like Obama (especially being re-elected) because they can count on his being indecisive and apologetic in nature. Otherwise, why would they all like him? Can't people see what's going on?
Those of us with intelligence know why...............communists, socialists, dictators...........
Obama does the right things. When will the bought GOP see the light of day?
America is going to get the economy they voted for.
Yes! The America that voted for obama will get the economy they voted for. Who will they blame then? They would have only themselves to blame. It's a shame that those who didn't vote for obama will have to be included in the eventual failing economy.. We will see what kind of America will be the result of this election in about 20 years when the new generation has to live in it.
Bibi: Who's this?
Obama: I'm black and what you gona do now, tough guy? huh? ...you want to kill some Mullahs? go ahead, have fun while you do it...Leave me out of it.
