President Barack Obama conceded Thursday night that he is facing a tough fight for re-election



Obama spoke at a dinner for 50 people at the Washington home of lawyer John Phillips, who was on Obama’s 2008 national finance committee, and his wife, Linda Douglass, who until last year served as spokeswoman for the White House Office of Health Reform

He touted his administration's successes, he laid out how difficult he thought his re-election will be. "This is going to be a tough race because the economy is still recoveirng, a lot of people are still suffering. "I'm extraordinatrikly proud of the record we have amassed over these last two and a half years, but some of the underlying anxieties, frustrations, difficulties that middle class famliels are experiencing out there they are still feeling," he said. "They expect us to deal with it."

Obama explained, "It really has to do with two different visions of the future. Are we going to continue make investments that allow us to win that future… Are we going to continue to make sure senior citicens have the safety net of social security and medicare intact… Are we going to live withing our means in government but do so in a way that ensures that burden is shared by all and not just some."
Obama said that while his administration has helped the economy grow again, “our goal was never just to get back to where we were in 2007 and 2008.”

He listed implementation of the health-care overhaul and the financial regulatory law, along with a new clean energy policy, as things yet to be done, and said he is “confident” that he will get “five and a half more years to finish the job” his administration has started.

Straight from the horses mouth. A tough race and he's proud of what he has accomplished already.

Proud of that ObamaCare Law? Really? Then go to the courts, which already have deemed the ObamaCare Law Unconstitutional, and defend it-Now. Why the Waivers? Why the Back room deals and bribes/payoffs.

Great. A President is proud of the way he Jammed it down our throats.

He better wake up on the economy also. But, I think he just proved anyone calling Obama a socialist with the statements highlighted. Let's compare these statements with his next Public Speech and see what's he saying.

This is not what America wants.... as we will see, in 2012.

I think we can see what Obama is really about with this statement:


“our goal was never just to get back to where we were in 2007 and 2008.”


So I guess He wants things to stay bad??? The economy was not as bad then as it is now, IMO.

No president, in the history of this country, has ever been re-elected with an unemployment level above 8%.

Of course, Obama, can just adjust the unemployment figures to zero and called them, "Pre-employed".

Only to those with a racist mind set and to those who wish not to pay attention to what Obama says.

Obama Sends Republicans to the back of the bus


He said Republicans had driven the economy into a ditch and then stood by and criticized while Democrats pulled it out. Now that progress has been made, he said, "we can't have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back."

Obama is running for re-election???!!! OMG You're kidding me. This is news!
And how do you feel about that personally? I know, terrible. Why not start a thread on it since your "feelings" are highly prized and we must make a fuss over them? Oops, you did. Wow.

He is right that this will be a difficult re-election but only if Republicans do not trip up. We could have had the Senate in 2010 had they not elected people like Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell. Do you in any way believe that Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, or Dwight Eisenhower would vote for many of these Tea Party jokes of a Republican? The party has always had its base in the Midwest and Northeast now these two regions have left the party and why? Because the lunatic fringe from the South have taken it over in the last 30 years beginning with the Reagan Revolution. How did that work out again?


Supply-side economics is exactly what Bush called it, "voodoo economics", because no realistic financial policy would believe that deficits don't matter and skyrocket the deficit to levels not seen since the great statist, FDR. So why am I saying supply-side causes great deficits and not attack Obama? Because look at this guy he doesn't even know what he is doing. Obama is a joke of a President. What plans from him can we expect will be sane on the deficit?

So yes Obama will have a tough re-election only if we can keep these extremists like Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, and Rick Santorum away from the party convention. Any of these 'Tea Party Republicans' would drive the party into the ground and further isolate the same people it should be reaching out to. Vote Sarah Palin and lose the election by 20%, sounds very good to me. I for one want Obama out not guarantee him another 4 years. Obama is praying that the GOP nominates a Tea Partier, other than Ron Paul.

Obama is more white then black.
IF you are racist against him, then its because you despise white people.

Anyone can slap a picture up and give their opinion. It ain't exactly news.


Whenever the words "I think" are in the title, you know it is going to be a simple opinion piece with little substantial new information. At least usually and you are true to form here, I must say.
Sensing you are not agreeing with me?

This however...is news from CBS and on topic.

How good are Obama's re-election chances?

The short answer is: Pretty decent. (The even shorter answer, according to the speculators over at Intrade, is: 59.4%.) For starters, Mr. Obama is polling well against two of his most likely opponents: A poll last month found Mr. Obama would beat Mitt Romney by nine points and Tim Pawlenty by 19 points in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup if the election were today. The margin was narrower against a generic Republican candidate (something that, of course, doesn't exist) - but even there Mr. Obama held the edge, 45 percent to 40 percent. Mr. Obama's approval rating two years into his term (49 percent) was higher than two of the last two three presidents to win a second term - Presidents Reagan and Clinton. (President George W. Bush had a 59 percent approval rating at the midpoint in his first term.) Read more: www.cbsnews.com...

See how easy?
Everyone who doesn't find this thread earth shaking or news is not a troll.

Now y'all are just getting silly.

On topic...
I agree with Obama the race is going to be tough, even with the sorry, lame GOP candidates they are putting out there now.

Delusional? Hardly.

The GOP is just testing the waters for Rubio.
Soon you will see them pull Rubio out of a hat.
Then it gets interesting.

Yes, and it's going to be even tougher for him when he's in a federal jail where he belongs for the growing list of felonies he seems to have committed.

Man, you sound like Kinda Kurious. Boca Baby... LOL

Anyway, the news is, as you apparently missed it and it also disagrees with you fluff poll:

Obama admits it's going to be a tough race- I don't. I think it is a slam dunk for the Repubs.

You go ahead and keeping listening to CNN, CBS, ABC and the alike.

By the way, I like you being true to form also.

When is a "You're a Racist" remark coming from you? Or have you curved yourself?

I don't think you are racist anymore than anyone else anyway and everyone has allegiance to their color like crayons in a box. I am a forest green and I love all the other forest greens, love the blue and hate the yellow. This is what people do. I know you spelled disturbed wrong in your avatar. Spelling mistakes are a little like getting caught with your pants down. We all do it, but still a little telling. Peekaboo you.

I did it on purpose. There is a reason.

A protest, if you will.

Kinda Kurious as to who else will notice. Thank you for the pump though.

And please, lets leave my pants where they are....

Then Obama can get on the back of the bus


You know damn well what the history of this phrase means. You can deny you are a racist all you want...but your words speak differently.

Don't try to play it off like it is a play on words with Obama saying the Republicans can sit in the back...because he was talking about a car...you are talking about a bus. Not once in any speech did Obama say to "sit in the back of the bus"...that is just flat out lying. There is a huge historical difference...blacks were never told to sit in the back of a car...they were told to sit on the back of the bus.

It's alright though...the more racist anti-Obama people get...the better it is for Obama.


Every Presidential race in this country is going to be a "Tough Race"...that is just the way it is. But I do think Obama has a very good chance of being re-elected.

His average approval rating right now is a +9 ( www.realclearpolitics.com... )

The polls agains all the potential GOP candidate has him winning at this point ( www.realclearpolitics.com... )

And despite the propaganda...Obama has not increased taxes and the Economy is getting better with him in charge.


www.americanthinker.com...


The economy.


•The Great Recession, which began in 2007, ended in June 2009, just five months after Obama was sworn into office.
•Since June 2009, real Gross Domestic Product has grown in every quarter, at an average annual rate of 2.8%. In the preceding eight years, from 2000 to 2008 (4th quarter to 4th quarter), average growth was only 1.7% per year. Real GDP is now at an all-time high.
•Over the last 14 months, over two million private sector jobs were added to the economy. Over that same period, over 300,000 government jobs were cut.
•The stock market is up over 60% since Obama was inaugurated. It is now at levels not seen since June 2008, or before Bush bailed out Fannie and Freddie and gave us TARP.

Taxes.


•There has been no tax increase since Obama entered office. In fact, he cut taxes.
•The tax rates enacted under President Bush were extended. We are now paying at the same tax rates we were in 2007 and 2008, if not less.
•The stimulus was about one third tax cuts and tax credits.
•As part of the legislation extending the Bush tax rates, Obama added billions more in tax cuts and credits.
•A big reason that the federal deficit is so large is that federal receipts are 4.1% of GDP lower in 2011 than in 2007. (OMB Table 1.2)



The Health Care Reform will go to the SCOTUS...and I am confident that it will be upheld...which will be a huge blow to whichever GOP candidate gets the nomination.

So if they can't knock him on taxes, and not on the economy, and not on the healthcare reform being unconstitutional, and the birthers have been made to look foolish, and he is the president that killed Osama Bin Laden.....WHAT exactly are they going to knock him on???

Give me a list of things that the GOP candidates can use to effectively go against Obama...details please.

I love it.

Bring the hate... I feed on it.

I didn't make the term of "Bus" up. The reporter did.

All the things Obama is claiming a success if what is wrong.

ObamaCare.

Banking Reform

Education Loan reform

Immigration reform

Just to name some that the Repub canidates will have a field day with.

I don't believe that Anon was making a racist statement any more than President Obama was when he used the same statement.

As far as the back of the bus goes, my friends and I always fought to be at the back of the bus. Before you call me unqualified to have an opinion in such matters, I am mixed race, part being black.
