President Barack Obama then, the former US senator proved himself as the master guru of grassroots community organization with a message of the “Change We Need” to the American people which catapulted him about four years ago to the White House. Conditions in America then, were more different than they are now. The eight years of Bushy disappointments were so strong that drove away American voters towards the Obama Change We Need which resulted to Barack’s home run with much facility to Washington. Will it be the same for Obama in 2012?
The GOP caucuses that started in Des Moines, Iowa on January 03, 2012 and onwards unveiled the topography of playing field within same fence and disclosed its behavior to the other party who in turn would draw the ideas on how to consolidate and strengthen its position to go on with the race to Washington D.C on November 06, 2012.
Certainly, the Obama camp and its grassroots machinery organization had long started its work for their master guru to wrestle for a second 4 year score to the seat of power in America. It prides itself with its four year performances of lasting luster in the areas of Jobs and the Economy, Education, Environment, Equal Rights, Health Care, National Security, Student Loan Reform and Wall Street Reform.
The Bush bequeathed war on terror was weakened with the deaths of Osama bin Laden himself and two or more of his lieutenants was a singled out Obama achievement. The successful US monitoring on the crumbled, rumbled and some still crumbling dynasties and despots in the Middle East including the homecoming of US troops from Iraq all accrued to the Obama performance board.
Barack Obama, the one man heavily opposed while president of the United States of America by a GOP dominated Congress. Having been much despised and bullied, he could not do as much as he wished because of being barred to do by the system of governance the once enjoyed by the American people. His priority agenda that necessitate legislative concurrence were all killed under the pens of Republicans, heavy tolls of which borne difficulties and sufferings pinned more on middle class America. What left for Obama to do was to take another run to Washington with the hope he would continue creating the “Change Americans Need”.
The present occurrences in the other side of the fence embolden obama to keep running with greater vigor, charisma of programs of government and careful handling of issues hurled against from the other side of the wall.
To be able to take the White House home run with much facility as planned and expected, Obama 2012 campaign manager Jim Messina strategized to obtain 270 electoral votes for re-election which involves a variety and balance than he4avily relying on one plan to get 270 votes. In order to do this, he highlighted six different routes among 40 being considred actively in order to gain a majority in the Electoral College. Hence, the Obama campaign uses the John Kerry electoral map from 2004 as a baseline. Messina predicts that Obama can count on Kerry states in 2012, an assumption is entirely not without basis because there are some polls show GOP bets poll competitively, or even outdo Obama like in Pe4nnsylvania, Michigan, and New Hamsphire.
Granting President Obama gets all Kerry states as his campaign manager proposes, such would only yield a little majority. Florida is singled out alone with its 29 electoral votes would give the needed 270 votes to President Obama when he clings on to all Kerry states. Another way to get 270 votes is to use the Midwest via Ohio and Indiana having a combined 29 electoral votes. The “New South” route through two Virginia with 13 electoral votes and North Carolina’s 15 electoral to make a majority.
2012 Obama Campaign Manager Jim Messina clearly strategized the road for Barack Obama to tread back to the White House for the second time around. Will Barack Obama make it?
