The race to the November election is Officially on!!
So far this has been a masterful speech, with the President looking much like he did in 08...
We know that most everything he has said will not happen, but he will be able to use that against his opponent this summer..
Oh the benefits of having 90 mins alone on the bully pulpit, on ALL major networks in primetime, to launch a candidacy, folks this is a huge advantage
that his campaign has taken advantage of...
(contrast this to the Rep debate last night, where you basically had a slugfest on stage with folks attacking each other.. bet they wish they had a
bully pulpit in Primetime...)
The President leaves for a 3 day trip to five of the battleground states tomorrow... good strategy... ride the wave of tonight's speech..
This is going to be a wild few weeks with the Republicans trying to narrow their field to one candidate, because the longer it takes, the more ground
they will need to catch up on Obama...
Me? right leaning - independent, not a fan of the POTUS at all, although I have been called a Right wing Liberal on the Politics show
But I have
much more disdain for the entire CONGRESS...
Send them all home!!
