Obama Announces Reelection Bid For 2012
President Barack Hussein Obama announced today via email and video his plans to run for reelection in 2012. Obama is getting a jump on this campaign by beginning his fund-raising efforts 20 months before the election. In the email to his supporters, the President explains:
“Today, we are filing papers to launch our 2012 campaign,” Obama wrote in the e-mail. “We’re doing this now because the politics we believe in does not start with expensive TV ads or extravaganzas, but with you—with people organizing block-by-block, talking to neighbors, co-workers, and friends.”
The video, meant to appeal to the average working American, contains a multicultural smorgasbord of regular citizens offering real talk on their desires for this country and its leader.
The citizens appearing in this video represent North Carolina, Nevada, Colorado, New York and Michigan and deliver key words like “energy, hope, jobs, homes, opportunities” which call to mind Obama’s former, groundbreaking presidential campaign. The gentleman from North Carolina even acknowledges “I don’t agree with Obama on everything. but I respect him and I trust him.”
The young man from New York states that even though he was too young to vote in the last election, he recognizes the energy the former senator from Chicago brings to politics and to this country.
Clearly, the tone for this reelection campaign has been set and the woman from Colorado sums it up best: “I had this idea that politics was all show…but politics is how we govern ourselves. That’s what politics is. And at the grassroots level, it is individuals, talking to individuals, and making a difference.”
