What to Expect if Barack Obama is Re-Elected Nov. 6
6 months ago
History-making president would aim to make good on first-term promises
We’re down to the wire. Barack Obama, the community organizer from Chicago who rose to become the nation’s first African American president, is neck-and-neck with Republican challenger Mitt Romney by almost every meaningful measure.
American voters will have made history again if the Obamas wake up Nov. 7 without an eviction notice at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. The pressure of building on his first term will no doubt be a weight for “44” during the lame duck session in Congress immediately following the election.
During a second Obama administration, more of the Affordable Care Act would take effect for more Americans. The president would have a chance to make good on his pledge to end the Bush-era tax cuts, deliver real immigration reform, and actually close Guantanamo Bay this time.
It may not be sexy stuff, but it's meaningful for millions of lives and for the United States' reputation around the globe. To see an Obama second term visualized, click through the gallery above.
