U.S. - Obama for re-election

Rumor has swollen in the American press throughout the weekend. Monday, April 4, in the early hours of the morning Barack Obama has finally ended the suspense. The U.S. president has announced in a video posted on his website, his candidacy for the 2012 presidential election, giving the kickoff to his re-election campaign, reports Politico.

The New York Times points out, for its part, the coincidence of this announcement with the changes underway in the Arab world intervention in Libya and the threat to Washington of blocking the federal government. The New York daily also highlights the many challenges facing the American president: a fragile economy, unpopular wars (in Libya and Afghanistan) and fiscal policies and energy widely criticized.
