Obama’s 2012 Campaign, See 2008 Campaign

President Obama tells a gathering in Cartagena, Colombia what he knows his audience wants to hear . . .

In his most specific pledge yet to U.S. Hispanics, President Barack Obama said Saturday he would seek to tackle immigration policy in the first year of a second term. But he cautioned that he would need an amenable Congress to succeed.

“This is something I care deeply about,” he told Univision. “It’s personal to me.”

Could swear I’d heard this before. Four years ago. It serves as a measure of how Obama has delivered on his campaign promises. Especially since he is campaigning like he is running for the first time. Even though his party controlled the House, Senate, and White House for his first two years of this, his first term.

What’s sad is that we have a president of the United States who believes he can not win re-election unless he divides the country into as many segments as possible and directing them all against the other half of the country. Coming from the President of the United States, it’s disgraceful.

Maybe voting for the same guy again and expecting a different result is not a good strategy?

One thought on “Obama’s 2012 Campaign, See 2008 Campaign”

  1. Ross,
    I found you today by googling “Joe Bonamassa politics”. I am going to see Joe in concert on Sunday evening. I understand he doesn’t talk much during concerts, just gives a damned great performance. Being a conservative, I didn’t want the unpleasant surprise of a liberal rant in the middle of an enjoyable night out, which sometimes happens with musicians even when they come here to Oklahoma, a state in which not one county voted for Obama. Anyway, I found your blog and thought I’d tell you that I like it. It is now bookmarked in my favorites.
