President Obama's political honeymoon is over: Queen's University expert

2013-02-06

Queen’s University American politics expert Brandon Tozzo is available to comment on President Obama’s inauguration and what the future holds for his second term in office.

“As President Barack Obama begins his second term, he must contend with a series of international and domestic problems,” says Dr. Tozzo, a teaching fellow and specialist in U.S. domestic and foreign policy. “In the coming months he will support new gun control laws and immigration reform.  As well, he must deal with anemic economic growth while negotiating a deal with Congress to raise the debt ceiling. I expect his political honeymoon to be short lived. In all likelihood, Obama will face significant opposition in his domestic agenda and will focus instead on foreign policy objectives, such as the war on terror and withdrawing from Afghanistan.”
