(Waridaad) - The world's richest economy is in peril, and Barack Obama is the man charged with saving it. House prices are plummeting, the markets are seesawing, banks have been failing and America's biggest carmaker, General Motors, is in danger of going bust.

Obama owes a large slice of his electoral success to the global financial crisis.
