So if 15 states are really signing petitions to leave the US, 1. Who's actually signing the petitions? The citizens or just the government?
and 2. If they really secede, we know that it's not going to be pretty. This secession will be cutting the contiguous US into pieces, especially with New York. And as it stands, I'm thinking of preparing for war.
But 3. If the citizens are filing the petition, those numbers are pretty weak.
And 4. If more states are "expected to follow", and it ends up being almost all of the 50 states, the rest of the states will probably go with them, along with District of Columbia. It's just bureaucratic crap for nothing, except that Obama won't be the president anymore.
5. There's been hotly contested races before, and there's been depressions before. It's a wonder secession only happens now, but of course, Catastrophe Theory hasn't been properly researched yet, so we couldn't predict it.

So as a foreigner to American politics I ask what is so bad about Obama getting another term?

Or were you just trolling?
But seriously, if the citizens are signing the petition, then they should really just leave the country themselves. Yes, it would be less dignified, but those numbers look small.
