Back at the White House after a ten-vacation in Hawaii, U.S. President Barack Obama was in the midst of Washington politics and the election campaign. Obama returned to Washington, January 3 - the very day when his potential rivals for the Republican Party made its last statement on the party vote (caucus) in Iowa. The White House and the Obama campaign reported that the president will complete an aggressive campaign against the Republicans to the voting results in Iowa and holding primary elections in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida, where the range of his possible opponents in the election will narrow. But Obama quickly changed his holiday mood at work and on Tuesday held a video conference with his supporters in Iowa, where he is the only candidate of the Democratic Party. spokeswoman Jay Carney reported that currently the president is busy working to combat unemployment, for economic recovery and support the middle class. A time for showdown with his rival, Republican, said White House spokesman, will come later. "Nobody knows how long it will take as long as the Republicans are determined with his protege - said Carney. - Meanwhile, the president has enough cases that it will do before they engage actively in the campaign. Everyone would have their time. " president's press secretary declined to give details of the speech that Obama is going to speak on Wednesday in Ohio. This state supported him in 2008 and could play a crucial role in his re-election. Carney said in a speech at a school in a suburb of Cleveland, Obama once again draw attention to several key points, including - for their willingness to continue strengthening the economy despite the obstruction by Republicans in Congress. White House officials say that as the election campaign in the coming months will gain momentum, Obama will talk about it again and again, pointing to the sharp differences between his position and that of his possible rivals and at the same time emphasizing their achievements since the election in 2008. In the commercial for Obama, running on Tuesday, includes excerpts from Obama's speech in which he made after the 2008 win in the Iowa caucus. The creators of the movie resemble the promises which he then gave, and then executed. One of those promises was to reform health care, which resulted in the "health care is affordable for every American." In response, the Republicans have released their own advertising. They are trying to focus on high unemployment and growing poverty under President Obama. As for working with Congress, the presidential spokesman said that Obama hopes that those Republicans in Congress who stood up to the "path of obstructionism," change their course because it suits their own political interests.
