    What do you see as the POSITIVE aspects of re-electing President Obama?

    Please Just the positives... There is another question for the Negatives.... I would like to know what people think the positive aspects are if we re-elect President Obama again?

    A big positive for me is keeping some semblance of balance - it would be tragic to let the GOP have total control again, particularly due to how far right their agendas seem to be turning. 

    Although I disagree with a lot of Obama's policies - I do see that he is a man who will make some compromises. This tells me that he is someone who thinks about problems in a complex manner and doesn't simply just tow the party line.  The issues facing us are not just black and white - there are a lot of grey areas and I feel he considers the "big picture" more than most.  He's intelligent and articulate and people around the world respect him.  He's good for foreign relations in many ways. 

    I feel also he is a strong family man and I absolutely love Michelle and the initiative she is taking to get kids healthier and promoting exercise, good diet and fighting the rampant obesity epidemic. 

    I get the sense that Obama feels some degree of compassion for others - a sense I don't get with Romney, Santorum, or Gingrich.  Empathy makes for better policy decisions.

    On the positive side, any good projects under his administration as President of your country will get into completion. Having said that, this is just a wild assumption.

    Let's re-elect him on these issues;(1). His adminstration devised a plan to save a economic collapes.(2). All of the loan money for the bail-out is 95% paid back to the federal govenment and the American poeple. (3). the College Loan forgiveness Act was huge! (4) The only President to capture Bin Laden. (4) Home Sercurity is stable so far on his watch. (5) The most prolific President to address race-relations in America with eloquence (6). He adopted the Texas Air Check Program and made it a Federal Program, which saved the car industry/jobs, jobs, jobs. (7) Ended the Iraqi War when he said he would. (8). Gave the largest Christmas Present (ever) giving by an American President "BRINGING THE TROOPS HOME"! (9) He is young, gifted and both black/white! He is a great world rep for all Americans and devout Father of GIRLS!. (10). He remains FIRED UP AND READY TO GO! FOR ALL OF US. He is still the ultimate persuader of HOPE AND CHANGE. HOW CAN WE NOT RE-ELECT SUCH A CHAMPION?

    So far his policies appear to be working. We are seeing new economic growth without having to "sacrifice" as many of our federal programs the GOP wanted to eliminate. The reality is millions depend on government assistance whether they know it or not and He has done a great job balancing the economy, done extremely well with foreign affairs, and has secured increasing international influence for our country after the last administrations alienation of the third world. Overall the pros outweigh the cons, and Id rather see Obama as president then any of the new Republican leaders...none of which resemble the moderate leaders of the past.
