ABSTRACT
The author argues that U.S. President Barack Obama does not deserve to be re-elected in 2012 because of the large number of unemployed Americans, numerous failed economic policies, and a continued partisan polarization of the country. He argues that U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney is not a formidable opponent for Obama in the 2012 election. The failure of the U.S. Recovery & Reinvestment Act stimulus plan is also examined.
