That would be a possibility under Obama.

Now that the election day is getting closer, pollsters are jittery than any political news service group, and they are putting out numbers that do not make much sense.

Some say 48% to 46%, others say 50% to 50% tie; the battleground states figures are changing by the minute; and what is making things worse is Hurricane Sandy interrupting the campaign trail for both candidates.

Newspaper endorsements are also coming in, with one saying that its endorsement has not changed in over forty years, until now, and its preference is for the candidate who is planning to turn the economy around.

What? Where has that newspaper been in the last four years, when the economy was on the abyss of disaster, and unemployment was as high as 400000 a month in 2009, and the motor industry was going down the tubes?

It has all changed, and the economy was in recovery, in spite of the Congressional Republicans on Capitol Hill rejecting jobs proposals after jobs proposals, especially when the United States House of Representatives gave their party a majority through the "tea party" in the Fall of 2010.

Conservative organs, like Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingraham radio shows, broadcasting on over 1000 radio stations nationwide, plus Bill O'reilly and Sean Hannity backup TV talk shows, all pouring out whatever on an administration, from the very moment of its inception, it would be considered a wonder that President Barack Obama has survived his first four year in office.

The erstwhile Glenn Beck had a direct phone line to the White House, asking the president to report to him on his live TV show at 4 p.m. in the afternoon; but there was never a call back, obviously. He was just haranguing the leader of the Western world and making things difficult for him.

Remember too that there is the online opposition by websites like and others that will twist the news and cause embarrassment for Obama, just for the sake of it.

There also come the Weekly Standard, Washington Examiner, Free Republic, Town Hall, Hot Air, etc., etc. reeking havoc on Obama, and all having the ultimate aim to get him to fail.

No president has been forced to endure such awful experiences; but in all that, he has kept his cool and made strides toward a better economy than the one he found, creating over five million private sector jobs and reducing unemployment to a mere 7.8%.

Of course, no politician has been able to keep all the promises he made in a campaign, but most of Obama's promises have come true, such as ending the Iraq war to enable soldiers to come home, and urging Hamid Karzai to take security responsibility for his country, Afghanistan. There too, he was in the process of bringing American troops home to their families.

The Affordable Care Act to ensure adequate insurance coverage for millions of poor people has been achieved, and private insurance companies and medical groups making health care cost to skyrocket year after year have been sidelined in the health industry. (.... but somebody wants to bring them back).

As said proverbially, "Rome was not built in a day", and Obama was running for a second term to finish the work that he started in 2009. He was deserving of another chance to build a strong middle class, a well trained workforce to meet future technological and industrial trends, education to be a top priority for all citizens, young and old, equal opportunity for men and women in the workplace.

Tax reforms to make sure that the wealthy in society paid their fair share in taxes; and to tackle the huge National debt caused by two unwanted wars overseas. The U.S. military forces have never been stronger, and under Obama, he has the determination to keep them that way, as long as he remained president.

If only the stiff and cast iron opposition that has been presented to him all these years would subside, he would do better in building a strong economy, second to none in the world. He has promised that, and that would be what he would do.

Forget about the polls and newspaper endorsements. Voters should give Obama four more years to accomplish the impossible; thus bringing about a fair, stronger and equitable U.S.A.

      No one could "add up" Romney's numbers when he took over Massachusetts but he paid off their deficit and gave them surpluses his last 2 years in office.

      Romney was the quarterback for Romneycare and even the Democrats appluaded him for his outstanding job designing it, figuring out how to pay for it and getting it passed.

      Experience and success means everything. So what if the partisan lefty's don't vote for him. That's actually a good thing. They can tax, spend and cry about WEEEE NEEEEED ITTTT but they cannot come up with how to pay fot it.

      I suppose we can go the way of Greece, Portugal, Italy, Spain and have riots in the streets when the loans dry up and we go default. Obama HAS NO reasonable PLAN! He want's to do what Clinton did but we have no bustling economy to tax!! The Rich don't make enough to get the job done even if you tax them at 100%.

      Thank you so much, Nole; but President Barack Obama inherited so much .... from people like you, and now, he was going to dump it on your head in his second term, you i...t.

      You and conservative doodle high-ups would smell the s...t, the next time you meet me in the street; you simpleton.

      So long, banana peel.

      Seems impossible top me that human being could be stupid enough to think that another 4 years of Obama will be any better than the past 4 years. Obama is incompetent. He is overmatched and never had the ability to be a succesful POTUS.

      Can't you admit you are wrong, when you clearly are, and just move on?

      Hi Nole,

      You conservative, reactionary nincompoops never listen good. Nobody would ever call President Barack Obama a failure, except you.

      He has been emphasizing the word "change", from the very start of his administration.

      In his second term as president, he will unfold his real plan, and you will be surprised; it will transform America.

      He wanted to do so during his first term, but with an uncooperative Republican Congress, he has not been able to implement the plan to reform the "system", and that was something that you die hard Republicans did not understand.

      You have been thinking that he would run his administration the same way as the Republicans.

      Noooo! It would be totally different, with the wealthy paying their fair share in taxes; and the middle class would wield more political power. That was what they (the wealthy) were afraid of; but he would use the resources from the tax revenues to tackle the National financial crisis.

      The U.S. would be out of debt within a few years. Would you call that a failure?

      The economy would be stronger, and high unemployment would be a thing of the past.

      That is the America Obama wants; and not the trickle down prosperity ideology of the Reagan years.

      Face reality, libtards and progressivetards. A right wing tsunami is brewing and it is starting to roll. And there isn't a damn thing you can do about it. People more intelligent than you and better than you are about to clown slap your azz to the curb. You have the right to free speech but that does not mean we have to listen to you. You have the right to vote but that doesn't mean we have to follow you down your path of failure. We will save you from yourself.
