The race for the White House – will Barack Obama be a one termer?

Don’t miss your chance to hear blogger and author Jonathan Tasini with his unique take on American politics. For the past 25 years, Jonathan has worked in electoral and legislative campaigns across the nation. He is also a two-time unsuccessful candidate for Congress (the U.S. Senate in 2006 and the U.S. House in 2010).
With the 2012 battle for the White House well and truly under way the only certainty is that it’s anyone race. If Barack Obama loses the election he may be able to blame himself. At a time of record unemployment and with the American economy in tatters the republicans should be a shoe in.
However, with no clear candidate emerging from the Republican bunker, the President may well win by default. A Melbourne Cup field of hopefuls have either self destructed or failed to cut through with the electorate.
Tasini has written extensively on economic, political and labour affairs for a wide variety of publications and organizations, including The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, Business Week, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Playboy and The Los Angeles Times.
He created, and publishes, the “Working Life” blog, a central source of information, analysis and debate within organized labour and the general policy community. He is the author of four books: It’s Not Raining, We’re Being Peed On: The Scam of the Deficit Crisis (2010); The Audacity of Greed: Free Markets, Corporate Thieves and The Looting of America (2009); They Get Cake, We Eat Crumbs: The Real Story Behind Today’s Unfair Economy, an average reader’s guide to the economy (1997); and The Edifice Complex: Rebuilding the American Labor Movement to Face the Global Economy, a critique and prescriptive analysis of the labour movement (1995).Share
