  3. 3. Broken Promises The people of the United States voted for Barack Obamaas their President in November of 2008. He was sworn in tooffice in January of the next year. Contrasting his infamous “Yes, we can!” slogan, the newPresident soon became a disappointment. He had made toomany huge promises, and failed to follow through. Some would argue that Barack Obama has actually beena very good President, and that the general population failsto realize just how much he has impacted our country andgovernment. Despite these minority beliefs, the Obama campaign forthe election of 2012 will ultimately fail. This country has onlygone further into debt since his election, and trade withother countries has gone down significantly (save for China,but our ties to them are becoming thin).
  4. 4. The Start of a Political WarI don’t own this material. The Grand Old Party (GOP), as the Republican Party is sometimes referred to, can trace its roots back to the United States Democratic-Republican Party, with an anti- monarchy, pro-decentralization and pro-entrepreneur leanings, which it subsequently broke away from in 1854 owing to their increasingly leftist agenda. Its rise to power was swift, where its candidate, Abraham Lincoln, won the presidency in 1860, barely four years after they fielded their first candidate in a national election and six years after its formation. Since then, they have had another 17 Republican presidents, serving a total of 88 years. The party boasts of 55 million registered voters, the second largest in the country, and is known as an advocate of American conservatism, espousing the role of religion, nationalism and economics at its core.

However, his abrasive style eventually saw him losing control of the House, and he resigned from his position as Speaker under threat of mutiny.

  6. 6. Main Republican Candidates (cont.)I don’t own this material. Mitt Romney Rick Perry His poll numbers have consistently The former Air Force captain, who hovered in the 23-25% region, and once entertained thoughts of despite the short term hiccups caused by becoming a veterinarian, has never hid the mini-surges of Bachmann and his preference to remain as Governor Parry, his support base seems to have of the Lone Star State, claiming it to held pretty solid over the past two years. be "the best job in the His critics charged that his greatest world." However, the sparse field of strength, the ability to build a consensus candidates in the Republican from diverging factions, is also his biggest nomination race, as well as pressure weakness. He appears to be intent on from the evangelical segment of the pleasing everyone, which lends an grassroots, has forced Perry to appearance of him being a flip-flop on his reevaluate the matter.

He is widely expected to instantly challenge Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann at the top of the leaderboard. Copied word-for-word from http://2012.republican-candidates.org/
  7. 7. The Forerunners Newt Gingrich is currently in the lead for Republican support. He and Mitt Romney are butting heads to see who’ll be the winner of the primaries… … Unfortunately, history might be destined to repeat itself. Newt Gingrich is a brilliant politician, and he might start out as an O.K. President, but more than likely we’ll end up having another “Obama situation.” People will vote for who they believe is the smartest, and this could have disastrous consequences. More info next…
