Presidential Race in Full Stride

Posted on May 22, 2012 by


It seems like just yesterday Barack Obama won the presidential race. But here we are again, nearly four years later, in the midst of another election.

Barack Obama has chosen to run for re-election and is the head candidate for the Democrats while Mitt Romney won the Republican primaries.

Of course, the elections will take place in November, so the people of the United States have some time to decide who they want to choose.

Both Romney and Obama have already started to campaign around the country to gain supporters.

Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1947. Romney also ran for the Republican candidacy in 2008 but fell short to John McCain.

On the hot topic of abortion, Romney believes that it is up to the girl to decide. He also believes that the Afghanis should step up and take charge in Afghanistan.

Romney’s slogan is, “This election, let’s fight for the America we love.”

“I honestly don’t care what happens this election as long as the next president doesn’t ruin this country,” Josh Ravel, a sophomore at Fleetwood, said.

Barack Obama’s last slogan was “Change,” and many argue that Obama has not done enough change. Whether you approve or disapprove, however, Obama has accomplished a lot. Back in 2009, he signed the stimulus economic bill and tax relief. He also created jobs in 2010 and ended the war in Iraq.

In 2011, Obama helped out Libya in defeating Muammar Gaddafi. He also took out the world’s most wanted terrorist, Osama Bin Laden, the leader of the 9/11 terrorist plot.

Romney and Obama will be trying to attract people’s attention. Whether through ads on television or in magazines, campaigning around the country or a debating on national TV, all the campaigning may make you sick by the time election arrives in November.
