Obama launched his ambiguous campaign Washington - President Barack Obama yesterday, in the first official presidential campaign. But that did not fit with the decline in signs of economic recovery, which had hoped to support the renewal of his mandate.

Opening campaign, which raised the slogan of «ready for launch» his wife Michelle in front of a huge crowd of supporters in the states of Ohio and Virginia . Obama , who is now four years older after coming to power , growing wiser and perhaps less enthusiastic than he was in his first campaign in the winter of 2007 when people of hope and change, the battle of complex re-election in a country suffering from high unemployment and slowing growth, weakening the argument that re- prosperity to him.

Obama's campaign will be based on confirmation that it spared the country a considerable decline, second only to the economic crisis, and that his Republican rival Mitt Romney wants the rich re-implementation of the policy of tax exemptions for the wealthy, and the weakening of financial control that caused the economic crisis.

Obama will speak about his vision that will ensure the economic benefit the All-Americans and not just for the rich, and the successes of the security policies and foreign affairs, including the murder of leader of the «Qaeda» Osama bin Laden, «What to make Americans safe».

Republicans scoffed at the idea of ​​the official start of the Obama campaign, who accuse him of being initiated by a few months ago, taking advantage of official events related to the presidential duties. A poll conducted by the site «Real Claire Politx» Obama ahead by three points over Romney (47 versus 44 percent) six months before the elections scheduled for November 6 (November), note that presidents need to achieve rates approaching 50 percent the opportunity to feel confident re-election.

It seems Obama is more intuitive way of Romney on the political map of America, as he must win votes of the 270 delegates to win the election. In the view of most of the polls that Obama has more popular support than Romney, and that score points in the field of national security, and the critical population groups such as women and the voters of Hispanic origin. But weak on the economic front with unemployment exceeding 8 percent ceiling, and the emergence of confusing signals regarding the recovery of the economy and the sharp attacks launched by Romney, who supports the slogan «Obama is a failed policy».

Obama received the day before yesterday a blow resulted from the announcement of the Ministry of Labour decline of new jobs to less than 115 thousand jobs in April. He described Romney, who confirms that a successful businessman the country needs now is to revive the economy, the report as «a terrible and frustrating».
