Yes, the Senate just passed another reckless, and ineffectual stimulus (jobs) bill, so I guess there’s that. At least it’s not as God-awful expensive as the first one. I guess we can be thankful for small favors.
Meanwhile, Obama is reportedly already gearing up for his 2012 Presidential campaign, (although I would question whether he ever left campaign mode).
President Barack Obama’s top advisers are quietly laying the groundwork for the 2012 reelection campaign, which is likely to be run out of Chicago and managed by White House deputy chief of staff Jim Messina, according to Democrats familiar with the discussions.
For now, the planning consists entirely of private conversations, with Obama aides at all levels indulging occasionally in closed-door 2012 discussions while focusing ferociously on the midterm elections and health care reform, the Democratic sources said. “The gathering storm is the 2010 elections,” one top official said.
But the sources said Obama has given every sign of planning to run again and wants the next campaign to resemble the highly successful 2008 effort.
There’s not much happening around the world and here at home to occupy a President’s attention, which explains Politico’s recent disclosure.
Gee, I can’t wait to see more Obama commercials and some more of that cool “Sauron-eye” logo. We didn’t get quite enough of either over the last couple of years.
