v7_obama_one_term_presidentWill Obama be a One-Term President?

President Barack Obama is poised to win a second term as President of the United States of America. There are many in the media who are predict­ing that he will be a one-term President and are watching the Republican candidates battle it out for the nomination. At this point in the process, it is too late to even think that any Republican can beat the Presi­dent. President Obama has not even begun to campaign and the whole dynamic of the race for the Presidency is changing as we speak. The President, from the early beginning of his administration, has strategi­cally put into place procedures and guidelines that would as­sure a positive outcome in the long term. It is these proce­dures and guidelines that are now starting to bear fruit and will continue to show promise in the future.

The Republican Party hat­ed the stimulus packages only after they approved of them because it was President G.W. Bush that started them and it was President Obama who followed through. The Presi­dent wanted to make sure that the country did not fall into a major depression and cost the country millions of jobs by not acting. The Republicans had buyer’s remorse only because they realized that if the Presi­dent succeeds, the chances of defeating him in 2012 would be impossible. They then started a campaign to stop his administration from having any success. The Republican Party underestimated the re­solve of the President and the Democratic Party to push for­ward an agenda that would put the country back on the road to recovery. The first two years of the Obama administration was one of legislative achieve­ments because the House and Senate was controlled by Democrats. In the 2010 elec­tion that changed, with the Tea Party and Republicans voting out Democratic Representa­tives from the House. It is a lot harder for the administra­tion to pass the legislation to put forward the rest of the President’s agenda without the House support. The President is determined to go forward with or without the support of the Republicans in the house; this is why they will be defeat­ed in November 2012.

The President has been waging a campaign against the Republican Party as the reason why Congress and the govern­ment is broken and thy can do nothing to help the American people. The results of this stalemate in Washington is re­sulting in a backlash against the Republican Party and its members in Congress. The Republican Party is now faced with a contradictory dilemma of how to explain away the re­duction in unemployment, the economy’s recovery and the uptick in the housing industry as well as Wall Street’s con­tinued financial growth. All of the Republican presidential candidates are scrambling to come up with words to con­vince the voters that none of these things are occurring at a time when they hoped that they would not. These were the issues they hoped would still be there so that they could continue to run on them to de­feat President Barack Obama.

The President has not be­gun to campaign; however, when he does if you are a Democrat running for office, start now and get on board if you want to share in the vic­tory in November. One last thought: do you remember the rallies and caucuses that President Obama had in 2008. These events were huge. There is nobody in the Republican field of candidates that can draw crowds and voters like Barack can.
