The Hill – President Obama’s reelection in 2012 won’t be easy, the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) says.
Nor will it even be desirable, according to at least one CBC member.
Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), the new chairman of the CBC, told the group IMPACT to expect a bruising fight to secure the president a second term. “It’s realistic for our party to understand the enormous challenge we’re going to have, to get him back in the White House in 2012,” Cleaver told the group …
After all, this time Obama will actually have a record to run on, and a known history to be judged against. The “Blank Slate Messiah” technique only works once.
“It will not be a landslide or an easy victory,” Cleaver added. “We’re going to have to scrape and battle for every vote we get.”
He forgot to mention lie, cheat, and steal. Just imagine the voter fraud they’re planning for 2012.
Cleaver said the president has been the a victim of impossibly high expectations for his first two years in office. “The majority of Americans placed inflated expectation on candidate Obama and some even placed all of their hopes and dreams in him,” the Missouri Democrat said. …
And whose fault was that?
Some of Obama’s advisers are expected to begin formally setting up his reelection operation in Chicago some time in the first half of the year.
Bullshit. Obama has never stopped campaigning; his reelection campaign began the moment McCain conceded on Election Day (actually, McCain conceded sometime in the summer of 2008).
