White House Privately Plotting 2012 Campaign
From Politico, Obama's top advisors have begun laying the groundwork for the 2012 reelection campaign. Poltico says it will likely be run out of Chicago and managed by White House deputy chief of staff Jim Messina.
In related news, this just out from Rasmussen:
This week Rasmussen's Daily Presidential Tracking poll hit rock bottom for Obama's year in office, at -19, for three days in a row. Today it's climbed back up to -16.
Frankly, I'm fine with Obama going into permanent campaign mode. Campaigning, not governing, is what he's good at. I think his priorities are exactly where they should be. He wasted the good will of the people that he came into office with who believed his Big Lie of hope and change, wasted a year trying to pass a crappapalooza government takeover of health insurance bill that the majority of the voters don't want. Why not waste the next two years campaigning?
My vote for a campaign slogan: "More of the same."
My vote for a campaign theme song--this golden oldie from Carly Simon. Go, Champ.
"That's Obama. . . Barack Obama"
