President Barack Obama is running for a second term. During the Presidential Debates, Obama did his best to convince the citizens of the United States to vote for him, and give him the opportunity to continue his role as President. In these debates, Obama tackled many issues including the economy, foreign policy, health care, immigration, abortion, and social security. Together in our essay, we highlight the important parts of each issue handled by Barack Obama.

The first, and biggest, issue Obama takes on is the economy. The Obama-Biden Plan is a plan to revitalize the economy. The United States is in its most serious economic crisis since the Great Depression. The plan that Obama and Biden have put together have 4 steps: 1. Immediate Action to Create Good Jobs in America

A Rapid, Aggressive Response to Our Financial Crisis, Using All the Tools We have Aside from this plan, other contributions made to improve the economy are trade, manufacturing, creating jobs, labor, small business's, etc...

With the US trading with foreign nations, it is believed that the American economy will be strengthened and create more American jobs. Obama and Biden plan to fight for a trade policy that opens up foreign markets to support good American jobs. The World Trade Organization will also enforce trade agreements and stop countries from continuing unfair government subsidies to foreign exporters.

The second issue tackled is foreign policy. Foreign policy is designed to achieve national objectives. Barack Obama focuses on common security, common humanity, and having justice and freedom in the world. Barack Obama plans to renew America's security and standing in the world through a new period of American leadership. He plans to end the war in Iraq, secure nuclear weapons and free nuclear materials from terrorists, end the fight against the Taliban and al Qaeda in Afghanistan, and revive American diplomacy to support strong unions and to work towards a lasting peace in the Israel-Palestinian conflict. Obama has pursued a hawkish foreign policy for the past few years. He has had some remarkable successes, such as the bin Laden raid and the withdrawal with Iraq. There has been a significant economic recovery and fewer domestic achievements that have appeared in the United States. From this, Obama may make his foreign policy wins the highlight of his reelection strategy.

Afghanistan has been extremely dependent on the United States since the U.S. backed forces overthrew Taliban in 2001. Afghanistan is one of the world's poorest and least developed countries whose economy relies on foreign aid. The people who are aware and educated are the one's who care about the election. The people in Afghanistan want the new President to withdraw the troops as early as possible. They think that Obama will be better because Romney has a fear of withdrawing NATO troops. Obama plans to refocus American resources on the greatest threat to our security, which is the renewal of al Qaeda in Afghanistan. Obama plans to dedicate more resources to boost the country's economic development. He will demand the Afghan government to have greater impacts on their society including corrupting opium trade.

Iranians all over the world have learned from experience over the years that decisions made by the Americans lead to many consequences on their country. The West has been putting restrictions on the country because they were fearful of Iran's peaceful nuclear program. Barack Obama supports direct diplomacy with Iran without any prerequisites. He feels that now is the time to use the power of the American diplomacy to push Iran to stop their nuclear program, threats toward Israel, and their negative support for terrorism. Obama figures that the only way to make progress is by giving the Iranian government a choice. If...
