President Obama: Potential Round Two?

Updated on April 10, 2011

On November 5th, 2012, Americans will be going to the poll again to elect the next president of the United States.  President Obama has already announced that his re-election campaign will be soon.

In the last major election, control switched to the republicans, as Americans spoke with their votes, similiar to how they spoke with their votes during the previous Presidential election. Does this indicate Americans are wishy washy, or has Obama done that bad of a job?  Should Obama run for a second term?  What has he truly accomplished as president?

The three things most people will say about what he has done since he has been in office, is a health care plan that was strong armed in, failure to get US troops out of the middle east, and in fact got us in another conflict in Libya.

As a country, most Americans are sick of politicians in general.  Ever since the economy tanked, wars began, wars continued, and overseas relations continue to go south, America's confidence in politicians as a whole has eroded.  Die hard republicans and democrats will each blame the other, pointing out one incident or another over the past 15 years that has resulted in the mess.  These are the same voters who will vote for the incumbent, or their parties favorite.  They ignore the bad and over embellish the good.

For just a moment, forget party lines.  Focus on issues that face the country at this time.  What are the politicians doing?  What is Obama doing?  Is he leading, or simply allowing congress to bicker and accomplish nothing?  Is he proactive in working with people, or determined to have his way? Do Americans want to endure another 4 years?  For that matter, is there a Republican or Independent candidate Americans really want for 4 years?  Could this be a case of the devil we know, versus the devil we don't?

There is currently no strong fore runner in the Republican camp, nor does there appear to be one.  Will Americans vote for them anyway, voting once again for "change"? Or will they become complacent and not vote, and allow another four years of Obama?

Or could this be the year people express their displeasure and vote independent?
