President Obama is seeking votes from every demographic, including the veteran vote that traditionally support Republicans. But what they see this year is an unending support by a President that wants troops active in the wars to come home from war. The President is making promises he is keeping to the military, and has recently stated a timeframe for American withdrawal from Afghanistan shortly keeping his promise as American soldiers left Iraq. For some, it's not quick enough. For others, namely the Republicans, they are in favor of keeping the military in foreign wars. Americans from both sides of the isle are waking up to the Republican agenda, which seems not to be too friendly towards soldiers these days, not to mention the gays, women, and people of all colors. The nation seems devided when you look at it through the eyes of the Republicans, but when you look at it through the eyes of Obama, you will notice a strong sense of desire to bring the nation together. Respecting everyones beliefs is important to President Obama, but he also realizes that not every American will see things his way, and he accepts that.
President Obama is running again for a second term, because he realizes that if he doesn't run, or doesn't win for that matter, the chances of just about everything he has accomplished these last four years will be for not, because the Republican party will try to repeal everything President Obama has done. Policy is supposed to change for the better, but in this case with a possible takeover of the WhiteHouse by the Republicans, it's almost like mass mutiny for good policies that protect the middle and lower class people.
I highly expect that President Obama will win re-election this year, but not without a fight from Mitt Romney, who promises to give him a run for his money.
