Obama To Run For Re-Election

Barack Obama has made it clear he wishes to stand for re-election in the upcoming 2012 elections by releasing a video on his own site 'barackobama.com'. The use of this online video is reminiscent of Obama's use of social networking to gain the support of millions of Americans back in 2008, which many senior officials claim was the main reason behind his victory.

Although President Obama does not appear in the video he has stated that his intentions are to 'start off small and grow over time'. Many opposing officials claim Obama is starting his campaign earlier to hide the fact that he failed to deliver many of his campaign promises, a statement which was disregarded as nonsense by a presidential spokesman.

Not being an American myself I have no opinion on Mr. Obama, but will you be voting for him come 2012?

  3. :/ I wish I could vote. mac-and-me is right, basically, anything with a shot isn't gonna be good. However there is always a lesser evil. If I could vote in the US elections, it wouldn't necessarily be for Obama, but I wouldn't discard him either. He's not the best, but he sure isn't the worst.

  7. Voting is like this blogging, you only get out of it, as much as you put into it.

    Since most of america thinks voting is stupid and pointless, they either don't vote, or they don't keep up on what's going on with the government.

    If we did it would keep those in power held responsible a bit more for not doing what they promise too, and maybe America wouldn't be so poor right now.

    That being said I don't know who I'm voting for yet, because I haven't seen who is offering the best stuff for my life.
