Who Wants To Be President? 2012


Obama does. Gotta give him credit. Look at the world today. Look what he's up against. Lots of people just criticizing and staying part of the problem. Let's hope this next election fosters lots of new ideas from all of our leaders: Republicans and Democrats. "If the president is to get back into the White House he has to leap a number of obstacles: an economy that is so sluggish that there are constant worries it could go backwards and supporters who may be unenthusiastic about sending more troops to Afghanistan, bombing Libya and failing to close Guantanamo Bay prison. There is also huge uncertainly in the country about health care and much more we will be looking at in detail."

What do you think about our options?

  1. President Obama will be running for his second term in office. He has had to face previous challenges that existed head on. The economy has weakened which cause even more problems and the battle in Libya. Obama has had to face many difficulties as president. To say that he is a bad president would be unkind. He has had many great ideas to get our nation back on track, it's just a matter of following through with those proclaims. I think that if i were 18 i would vote for Obama again, to see the changes that Obama can present, i don't think he's had enough time in the white house to show us his full potential. There will indeed be many opponents that will face Obama, "Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty, Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann and Donald Trump seem almost certain to have a go. Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, John Huntsman and Mitch Daniels seem less sure bets." http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/markmardell/2011/04/obama_announces_re-election_bi.html
    I think that even with these so called qualified contestants, Obama should have more time as president to really make a difference. He is the one that knows the system best because he has been the most recent to deal with them. By having a new president come to office, they would have to familiarize themselves and take up time. If Obama is reelected, that familiarizing time slot would not be there and so Obama can continue on and MAKE A DIFFERENCE and not just talk about it.

  2. The 2012 presidential election is just around the corner and President Obama will be running for his second term. While it doesn't seem like too much has changed, it is difficult to make any real differences in this economy in only three years in office. Not to mention, he inherited one of the worst situations he could have asked for. It will be interesting to see how this election turns out since our generation will be voting.
    I personally believe Obama needs more time to actually make a change in today's economy. People often associate Obama with the poor economy and even think he's making it worse. They think someone else will do a better job. But as the problems keep getting passed along to the next person, they never really seem to get resolved.

  3. Our options for the 2012 presidential election is a joke there is Donald Trump, Fred Thompson, and Sarah Palin. I remember when we actually had experienced candidates for the presidency. Also with all the problems and challenges Obama has had to face it is amazing that he still wants to be president. In my opinion and I guarantee in many people opinion Obama is the only person that I can take serious to be the next president. It is unfair to think Obama has been a bad president because he has not got to share all of his brilliant ideas with the world. When fighting wars and trying to fix the economy it is very difficult to introduce his ideas if everyone wants him to focus on the problems we already have. When polls go up and I am allowed to vote I will vote for president Obama. He is the only true and reasonable candidate for the president of the United States of America.

  4. President Obama has made the decision to run for a second term in 2012 seems to be a suprise to everyone but I dont understand why. I'm glad he is running again. We had 8 years of Republican Ideology and Politics and look where it left the country? In tons of economic troubles which we have yet to recover form. To balance it out, there needs to be some contrast. I'm not in favor of the lower class doing all the sacrificing while the Upper class gets nothing but help from Republicans. Dont get me wrong, Im not at all saying Obama has done his job perfectly, however I do think that if his ideas are pushed in the right direction better days will come. Regardless of who is nominated I just want to see a positive change in our economy because if things do not begin to progress today generation and the following will be in much financial trouble.

  5. Obama definitely needs more time in office ! People expect the economy to come back in a short period of time and they're delusional. I believe reelecting Obama and letting him continue to lead will only make the economy better because obama has only been setting the foundation to attempt stabilizing the economy and, as Melissa said, passing the problems on to the next person its a greater chance that the issues will go bo backwards or never really be resolved.

  6. President Obama has decided to run for his second term and I am very glad he has decided to do so. President Obama took over when this country was in its worse shape, due to former President Bush and his horrible ideas on how to lead this country. With the financial deficit and this country in a war and so many other problems,President Obama did not have an easy job. Many people should praise his hard work and dedication to improving this country, at least he hasn't given up on bringing this country back to its feet. President has a courage of a great leader. After eight years of horrible leadership, it does take four years to improve it. He has accomplished many things that have benefited the majority of Americans.
    "Throughout this process the President has been doing everything he can to make sure the government continues to operate as it should because unlike the Republicans he has concern about average Americans and how such a shutdown would effect them." President Obama has always been trying his best in trying to complete things that will benefit the average americans. If another President, specifically republican, this nation may go backwards again. The candidates that have been rumored to be running for President are a complete joke, Donald Trump? Really? Being the leader of this country is no joke. The whole country wants to see change and so far I feel like we are on the right track. We should allow President Obama to provide us with his promises and the least we can do is support him for his dedication into bringing up this country to its feet.

  7. When Obama took office, he had to take care of the mess that the Bush Administration left him. This includes unemployment, slow and declining economy, war, and protesting for a better future. Obama has, and is trying to fix these problems, but people do not realize that fixing the economy isn't as easy as just stepping into office. Our economy has strenghtened slightly over the years that Obama has been in office, as new jobs are being created. But the main problem is the threat of losing all of the money. Could their be a better candidate with ideas that will help our economy substancially? As of now, Obama has my vote- unless we there is a candidate that can match his ideals and possibly give us a brighter future.

  8. President Obama will be running for his second term and I think this is good for him. I feel like with the time given to him in the White House hasn't shown the country what changes he can really make in the economy. Obama has good ideas of what he wants for the United States. I feel like many people have given up hope for Obama but they do not give him enough credit. His job is not easy. I feel that many people do not realize that President Bush left the United States with a bad economy. Obama has to carry the burden of someone else's mistakes.

  9. Our options include: "Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty, Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann and Donald Trump seem almost certain to have a go. Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, John Huntsman and Mitch Daniels seem less sure bets." (http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/markmardell/2011/04/obama_announces_re-election_bi.html) These are the upcoming possible candidates for the next presidential election. Obama plans to have his organization up and ready for this election. America is in such a horrible economic slump that will be extremely difficult for any president to come up with a strategy that will help us build up our economy and work upwards instead of back down again. Whoever is planning on running for president is going to have a ton on their plate. There are constant worries that involve being the president of the U.S. at this time because people are worried about the economy moving backwards, troops being sent to Afghanistan, bombing Libya, and other factors that could set our economy even further behind. The country is going to focus on which president can get us out of this economic recession instead of sending troops or bombing other countries. Obama has a ton on his plate right now because he has to make up for Bush's mistakes and the horrible decisions he made when he was president. He is a huge factor to the position of our economy, and people are criticizing Obama instead of encouraging him. Obama is doing the best he can with the multiple issues that hover over our country. We need to focus on moving forward, not backwards, and that includes motivating our president.

  10. "Here in the US, the opposition is currently either faceless or hydra-headed. There is no obvious front-runner, and any prediction about who will be the Republican candidate in 2012 is nothing more than an informed guess." (1)

    So it would seem that the choices at this moment are unknown, it is hard to turn away from such a figure head now though. Obama is taking strides to keep his name a house hold one, Obamacare, Obamisation, I personally think we let him keep doing what he does. I really don't think he'll have any opposition that will cause to much trouble

  11. I believe that Obama is doing what is best for our nation and doing the best he can. To elect another president for Obama would be hard because he won't know if the other candidate would be better or worst for our nation. So to let Obama run for another term be for the best I think because he know what he is capable of doing as president. To blame Obama for jeopardizing our nation is wrong. To see America blame Obama for being in debt is a mistake because of the health care set up by Bush.Who would you rather have a president Barack Obama or Donald Trump? Obama > Trump (FAIL no offence) You decide.
