Obama has been given another opportunity to fulfil the promises he made back in 2008, it will be interesting to see how the next four years play out as The House of Representatives still has a Republican majority whereas the Senate has a Democrat majority. The economic situation is currently the biggest issue on the presidential agenda; Obama will have to reshuffle his policies and attempt to create a dynamic and stable economy for growth.
I believe that Mitt Romney had only started showing his true potential of being a good candidate for presidency towards the end of the campaign. Even though I supported him from the beginning of his candidacy, it was apparent that he would fail to gain any of Obamas voters. If given the chance I think that Romney would have been a strong president in the sense that he would put growth and prosperity of the economy at the top of his agenda. He would not have suffered from the expectation to provide more welfare for the people as is Obama’s situation.
As January begins we will begin to get a picture of how Obama intends to handle the economy, and whether or not these next four years will be prosperous ones or a fight for survival. Until then, I wish the best of luck to President Barack Obama as in the end of the day he must serve the interest of the people of the United States.
