The man who leads the nation that hosts the globe's largest
is looking across the Atlantic as his effort to retain power shifts
into a higher gear.
In less than one year, the U.S. will know whether President Barack
Obama returns for an additional four year or if his one-term as
chief executive officer will
to someone such as President Newt Gingrich. Or, perhaps, President
on Monday that European Council President Herman Van Rompuy,
European Commission President José Manuel Barroso and European
Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton are on White House
grounds to discuss issues germane to the global economy. And
preoccupations about the euro zone's sovereign
scourge are increasingly encroaching on 2012 presidential election
Of paramount concern to Obama is preventing the debt scourge from
crossing the Atlantic and infecting the U.S. economy, which is
attempting to avoid a double-dip
, according to Reuters.
Though Gingrich collected the influential
Union Leader newspaper this past weekend, the former Speaker of the
House of Representatives still trails former
Governor Mitt Romney in the polls.
Either way, both candidates and others are tightening the screws
against President Obama.
