Obama re-election?

He will be re-elected

Side Score: 58
VS.

He will not be re-elected

Side Score: 49

I don't see why not. We re-elected squatter George W. Bush after his deplorable performance as President the first time around. All the data indicate the jobs and the economy are rebounding as Obama slowly cleans up after the Republican mess. Republicans prefer scare tactics to data, so I hear many people saying that they're "scared" or "worried," but I invite you to examine the data instead: the economy is on the rise, jobs are on the rise, so-called "Obamacare" has been helpful to many and finally brought us to even with much of the rest of the world which has been doing something similar for years, and we are still able to defend ourselves reasonably well despite Obama's less military stance (we DID get Osama during his term, didn't we?)(no, he didn't just "happen" to be president, he helped make it "happen"). Unless the Republicans can come up with someone smarter, better, and more Presidential, I will be re-electing him gratefully.

Unless the GOP can come up with a candidate with a real chance of beating Obama, he will no doubt be re-elected.

Side: He will be re-elected

For him to not be re-elected there would have to be a credible alternative. The Republican field is pretty weak this election since most top Republicans are going to wait until 2016 when the race will be up for grabs rather than try to take on an incumbent.

Side: He will be re-elected

It is now 2015 and I am so happy that I was with the majority of voters who re-elected President Obama.

I certainly don't want another four years, I don't think the country could withstand it.

What exactly couldn't the country withstand? Haven't jobs and the economy only improved since his election? In case you're not sure, they answer is: yes. So what couldn't we withstand, specifically?

It only looks like unemployment is down because they go off the stats of who is on unemployment. They don't count the people like me who can no longer receive it and still are out of work. I'm just one of the lucky ones who can afford to go back to school instead, and make an attempt to change careers to something that will always be around despite the economy. Stats can be manipulated anyway someone wants to to benefit their position. I don't fall for the BS.

The Obama Plan is in full function , he is bringing America down. A Liberal would lie even if the truth fit better..if you can not see what the Democratic Party is up too , then you need help.Obama is not the one running the show , he was put there for a reason , the Minority vote , the feel sorry for the unfortunate minority to gain more control. why has he not done anything about the Illegal aliens problem ? Other than it sure appears he will be allowing Criminal to have citizenship. Oh yes , he did not kill Ben laden either, navy Seals did..if that is even true , would not surprise me if it was all fabricated to create Stardom for Obama, you think he is starting to think about re elections? well is that special or what?

No, for many reasons. First, and most simply, Obama has fairly low ratings. Lower than what is usually necessary to get re-elected. Also, just recently, the American public voted in a lot more republicans to the house if that tells you anything about the majority opinion of democrats (which Obama represents). People are also disapproving (for the most part) of the legislation he has introduced, particularly the health care act. Even many liberals are angry with him because of how many compromises he has made with the now republican house so he may not even make the nomination.

I don't think he will. I think most people with any common sense is fed up with all his lies and BS!

Please specify what his "lies" and "BS" are. Are they really greater than/worse than those of our previous president? I would argue that he has mostly done what he said he would. Please refute.

What "lies" and "deceptions" are you referring to, specifically? He's more honest and his presidency has been markedly more transparent (it's one of his hallmarks; see: the White House webpage, e.g.) than his predecessors. Please describe what you are "fed up" with, and whether it's really enough to deserve his not being re-elected.

Side: He will be re-elected

obama got us 5.1 trillion dollars in dept already. Raised the tax on fuel and gave huge amounts of money to solar power manufactures. That are horrible at creating energy. And trying to make coal more expensive which are used in coal plants that make 50% of U.S power. Raising electricity prices. And obama lost 4 million jobs.

It would be insane to re elect him.
