The campaign of President Barack Obama runs fast as he is and taller than he is because of taller platforms of government. The campaign as Jess Mesina has strategized is expected to propel the Obama re-election and second run to the Washington. A well thought campaign is always hoped to generate expected results with great advantages. The Obama campaign bandwagon runs smoothly on its tracts going to its planned and desired destination – The White House. Where is the Obama campaign now?
As recent as yesterday, March 07, the campaign was in the key battleground state of North Carolina. Candidate Obama went there with a weighty message on “alternative energy source to lessen dependence on oil”. He said to the Democrat voters as quoted from Mary Bruce, “We’ve got to develop every source of American energy; not just oil and gas, but wind power and solar power, nuclear power, bio fuels. We need to invest in the technology that will help us use less oil in our cars and our trucks, in our buildings, in our factories. That’s the only solution to the challenge, because as we start using less, that lowers the demand, prices come down,” the president told workers at the Daimler Trucks manufacturing plant in Mount Holly, N.C”.
Emphasizing using less oil as a solution Bruce said, “As rising gas prices become a key issue on the campaign trail, the president argued that using less oil is an important part of the solution”.
To encourage more Americans to avail and support the alternative energy program, Bruce explained further, “Obama announced new incentives to encourage consumers to buy alternative-energy cars, calling on Congress to increase and expand the current tax credit for purchasing “advanced vehicles” from $7,500 to $10,000. The president also announced a new $1 billion challenge to spur communities to invest in clean-vehicle infrastructure, such as charging stations. “We’re going to give communities across the country more of an incentive to make the shift to more energy-efficient cars,” he said as quoted.
Candidate Obama’s message at Daimler Trucks manufacturing plant in Mount Holly, N.C as viewed on available video online, was applauded several times which indicated its clarity to the American people. Obama is indeed, campaigning for the betterment of every responsible and concerned American. He did not waste any moment of his time talking about non-sense subject matters without bearing to the present needs of America.
Candidate Obama is in focus of what he can do for the American Union. Obama’s campaign proposals are direct diagnoses of the sicknesses of America and do not stop without provisions of cures to same ailments. The applauses in North Carolina suggest that America still needs a re-elected President Obama.
Re-election candidate Obama flexes his campaign to offer hope and dispel the clouds of hopelessness in America. He sounded that greater if not the greatest hope of America started yesterday in North Carolina.
