Obama Looks a Winner, but I am not Sure Now

Updated on October 17, 2012

A Second Term for Obama

Looking at the election scenario, the jigsaw is finally getting solved. the opponent of Obama is Mitt Romney and now the election is in full swing and 2 of the 3 presidential debates are over.

To win nomination a candidate is to win 1144 delegates and votes and Romney is the man to face Obama. The fact is Mitt was lagging behind Obama by almost 7/8 percentage points just a few weeks back, but now after the first debate slowly but surely Mitt has come abreast of Obama. Now one cant be sure about Obama as there is agood chance Romney may move ahead..

the media in the USA plays a big hand in any election. Obama has an advantage as a sitting president starts with an advantage. A sitting President rarely loses an election and since Roosevelt only 2 have lost. Thus Obama starts with an advantage.

The fact remains that sitting presidents have lost and Obama will not be the first to lose. Obama despite a healthy creation of jobs has lost his charisma and Mitt has brought this out. Mitt may well move ahead of Obama and it will be a toss up who wins, but Mitt is definitely in with a chance.

Come to think of it many political commentators were forecasting an Obama win just 4 weeks back, Nobody then gave Mitt a chance, but strange are the ways of US elections. Suddenly Mitt has got up from his sick bed and gave a telling blow in the first presidential debate. Obama put in a poor performance. The second debate was more even, but now its clear Obama has a fight on his hands.

      I believe people do see the president has failed to come through on many of his promises, in spite of what the media is being paid to broadcast. I do respect his position, but we need a leader who is really for the people. I agree that someone with charisma and great leaderhip experience would replace the present leader well.

      Policies are not accomplishments, and Obama is really empty on accomplishments. So voters that pick who wins this election based on policy are not going to help the country.

      When you interview for a job, especially say a D or C level job, the interviewer doesn't want to know your policy, they want to know what did you actually accomplished.

      Example1, I implemented a new method of tracking projects from design through implementation.

      Example2, using my new tracking method for projects, I was able to bring in projects on time and under budget. Here is the results for my last several projects.......

      Which one of the examples would you choose?

      Obama's policies place him to the right of Richard Nixon, and a bit to the right of Ronald Reagan. So American voters are facing a choice between Reagan and the candidate of the Ku Klux Klan, Christian Taliban, and Koch Industries (blended into a smoothie).

      For American working people and "progressives", it's really a lose-lose game. We need a party of our own.

      Anyway, interesting article — I've voted this Up and Interesting.

      this reminds me of the old Charlie the Tuna commercials on TV.

      Sorry Charlie we wanted a Tuna that tastes good, not a Tuna with good taste.

      Sorry Obama we want a President that can make good on his or her election promises, and not a President that makes new promises while the old promises are met.

      You get the idea.

      It sound like from your last paragraph, that if Obama loses he would be welcome to run India.

      Obama won the last election because the people wanted changed from George W Bush, and treated McCain like he was George W Bush.

      Now Obama in three years has become the new George W Bush and the people want change once more.

      Senator Obama promised that he would change Washington, and he did but people thought that he meant change it for the better.

      It's way way too early to be predicting. Much can happen between now and November.
