Here’s the new portrait released today for President Obama’s second term. I posted the old picture below also in case you’ve never seen it. I definitely prefer this one.
So the Obama campaign announced that Pres. Obama is indeed running for a second term by releasing a video. Then Tim Pawlenty, who obviously is going to run for President released his own video called “New Direction”,
Apparently Tim Pawlenty is a fan of the movie Inception (I’m a fan too) because the overly dramatic music seems extremely similar to the movie. Yet, maybe Pawlenty is in a dream within a dream where he tries to get Americans to think that Pres. Obama is not getting us out a hole Pres. Bush put us in.
Unfortunately the ad provides no substance and very little appeal as to why Tim Pawlenty would provide a “New Direction”. This ad was a fail for Pawlenty, it’s like, we’ve seen this before…how are you going to be different from any other fear-mongering republican?
Woo! 2012 elections are starting again…so early it may seem but so exciting this year will be. This is the video the Obama campaign released this morning.
Lets face the truth, it will not be easy. Unfortunately many Americans think the economy, education, and other important issues can be fixed in one term. But, fortunately for Pres. Obama, the economy is picking back up, jobs are actually being created, and the unemployment number is going down and with each report, it shows that private sector jobs are growing. Oh but remember when the GOP said Obama’s plans would only hurt small businesses? Obviously they were wrong.
Pres. Obama made many in roads with the middle class, offering a ton of tax cuts, that I’m hoping people and small business owners realize and are utilizing. The grant and stimulus money that has given me and so many other students the opportunity to continue education and get jobs in the academic sector. Both of which I have benefited from
Yet, with republicans in control of the house, the drawback appears to be that energy and environmental issues are taking a back seat and will likely not move forward. On the other side, with republicans only in control of key states like Michigan, Wisconsin, and Ohio…the short amount of time they’ve been in office, they have proven they can indeed screw up a state faster than we thought. I suspect democrats will be put back in control once the general election starts. The issue with the 2010 midterm elections was that of an older, more conservative electorate that voted. In the general election, a more electorate that represents real America will go out to vote.
So since the campaign is basically starting again, it’s never to early to direct you to BarackObama.com
It’s been quite a long time since this blog has posted anything Obama Family related. So, to make up for my failures, here’s a great video of Sasha Obama scoring a hole-in-one while playing mini-golf. Most of us can only dream we were this awesome.
A recent poll came out showing the majority of republicans think ACORN stole the election for then candidate Barack Obama. They must be forgetting that we were fighting two wars, the economy was in the tank, gas prices were $3+ and George Bush’s ratings were in the gutter. Lets not forget that McCain was a poor candidate, and sure he was doing well at one point, but that ended with the introduction of Sarah Palin. She scared a lot of people and sort of proved that America doesn’t accept this form of extreme conservatism. Now I’m no fan of ACORN but, considering the margin by which Obama won and the fact that republicans can’t provide any evidence ACORN was able to steal the election for Obama, my only conclusion is that the republican party is delusional.
Instead of scapegoating ACORN for all of their failures, how about improving the party. Clearly the party is failing on many levels. With the fracture in the party, (moderate) republicans verses conservatives (or moderate versus extremists), it’s clear the party of No hasn’t done much to improve itself. To this day you even have conservative like Hoffman (NY-23 candidate) blaming ACORN for winning the election for Owens. Just like Sarah Palin, NY-23 rejected his extremist conservatism. That’s the problem, extreme conservatism. Just look at the failures of the republican party this year,
- Republicans alternative economic plan contained few numbers or estimates
- Republican alternative health care plan savings weren’t estimated because they don’t know how to calculate that under CBO rules
- Public doesn’t have any idea what their health care plan is…probably because they were too busy yelling
- Teabaggers invade street corners with racist and offensive signs and then screaming racist insults.
- Michael Steele constantly fails the republican party with his constant gaffes about race and couldn’t even stand up to Limbaugh
- Obviously over-exaggerated outrage over Obama’s education speech, health care commercials and the president bowing in respect to foreign leaders
- GOP sides with insurance companies which have made a fool of themselves throughout the summer and only made their customers mad.
This is only a short list of the crap that happened over the summer and feel free to add to this list of failures. My suggestion is that the republicans look at themselves and realize ACORN didn’t and doesn’t need to steal the election for democrats. Republicans are did a good job at keeping democrats in office.
