United States: a competitor for Obama

How good - or muddy - the outlook of President Obama to be re-elected next year, mainly depends on two factors: the state of the economy and the caliber of his challenger. Obama is preparing a major headache for the economy and threatens once again slipping into recession.

The situation on the labor market is unpleasant. In terms of rival candidate, the incumbent may still be left at the moment is relative: The Republicans, who have been presented as a would-be president, he will not steal the night to sleep. That could change, however, when a man named Rick Perry officially declared his ambition.

He is evangelical Christian and otherwise quite conservative, which does not always electrifying, but repulsive. His home state of Texas again brings back memories, horribile dictu, George W. Bush. But Governor Perry can boast of what Obama can only dream: Jobs! Texas grows dynamically and has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country.

In times of crisis is an asset.
