List of Obama accomplishments prove the president is needed for a second term in officeWith focus being rightfully paid to the recall campaign in Wisconsin, it's difficult to remember at times that this is a presidential election year. So, the question becomes: does Barack Obama deserve a second term in office?
The answer is a resounding "yes." Not only does Obama make a better candidate for a second four-year term versus Mitt Romney, but the president has proven that his record as commander in chief has been stellar.
Don't believe me? Watch this ad put out by the Obama campaign and tell me different:
