Why Obama Should Be Re-Elected
It will be much easier to edit Wikipedia, for one.

I think we really have a winner as president, don’t you? Barack Obama has been doing a great job running the country, always out there doing… stuff. Lots of stuff. Big stuff. President stuff. We’re lucky we have this guy, and it should be an easy decision to keep him around for another four years.
Now, there are people who say Obama has done an awful job. They go on and on about how he has no idea what he’s doing in the Middle East and cite all these statistics that show how bad the economy is, and it’s all rather dreary and depressing. No one needs that. Plus the suggestion that Obama has done a bad job as president is ludicrous. Quick question: Have you ever seen anyone go up to Obama and say, “I would like a dozen tulips”? No, of course not. No one thinks he’s a florist. It’s clear from the job he’s doing that he’s the president. So how bad a job could he be doing as president if it’s so easily recognizable that he is the president? Logic, people.
And the guy has done absolutely everything he’s promised… that’s mattered. Like remember how he said he was going to pass a big stimulus and keep unemployment from being 8%? Well, he passed his stimulus, and now unemployment… is not 8%. It’s an entirely different number than that. If you really didn’t want 8% unemployment, well guess what: You’re not dealing with that level of unemployment. Promise kept. And look at all the work he did for it: He spent $666 billion to bypass 8% unemployment. Could you spend that much money? No way. If I sat you down in front of a computer, logged you in to Amazon, and said, “Spend $666 billion,” it would be futile. You’d be clicking “Buy Now” until your mouse broke. But Obama did it; the man’s got hustle.
Obama also promised to get us out of Iraq, and he… started a war in Libya so we forgot all about Iraq. That’s pretty much the same thing. Another promise kept… approximately. And he used real outside-the-box thinking; Obama doesn’t do things the easy way. Like with getting ObamaCare passed — that was very difficult… especially since everyone hated it and didn’t want it. But Obama doesn’t care if something is difficult or unpopular or nonsensical or unaffordable; he just gets out there and gets it done. That’s a powerful president.
It’s already such an easy decision to say we should reelect him, but if you’re not convinced, there are tons of reasons why a second Obama term would be a great idea:
REASONS WE SHOULD REELECT OBAMA
* We’d save on moving costs. You’ve seen the economy; we need to be pinching every penny we can. Yet we’re thinking of paying to move a new guy into the White House and sending Obama back to Chicago? Such unnecessary expenses do not put the country first.
* We don’t have to make a bunch of international phone calls. If we get a new president, we have to call all the other countries and update them on the change in leadership. Plus a new country was just added — South Sudan — which means even more work. Who has time for that?
