Red States Regretting 2008. Giving Obama the Boot in 2012

I blame the American people for voting a senator into the Oval Office. Obama is not a John F. Kennedy. In fact, a senator has not been successful to be president. To date, sixteen senators have served as President of the United States. Only Warren G. Harding, John F. Kennedy, and Barack Obama are the three senators that moved directly from the U.S. Senate to the White House. There are mix reviews when a senator leaves the U.S. Senate to serve as President of the United States. The Red States that voted for Obama is regretting what happened in 2008. The people who voted for Obama left the conservative ideology; in order, to make history. The result led to a horrible economy since Jimmy Carter. Let's not make the same mistake twice.

(YAHOO) America begins its year-long countdown to presidential elections with the very real possibility Barack Obama could be a one-term president.

The election in 2008 may have been the most exciting for years culminating in the country's first black president but three years on, most Americans believe he will not be re-elected, according to some polls.

We followed Mr Obama's route through North Carolina last month to gauge his chances.

In February 2009 Mr Obama himself doubted his chances of re-election if he could not get the economy back in shape.

So far the economy President Obama inherited from George Bush, already in poor shape, has not improved on his watch.

Growth is a sluggish 2.5%, unemployment a politically radioactive 9% at least.

Since Mr Obama toured the state, economic figures have improved but only marginally and, more worryingly, the long-term outlook is equally depressing.

A few days after he swept through the mountain town of Boone, we talked to Philip Ardoin, politics professor at the Appalachia State University.

"I would give him a less than 10% chance of re-election right now.
