April 4, 2011: The True Beginning Of The 2012 Presidential Election Campaign!

Today, April 4, 2011, will go down in history as the the true beginning of the 2012 Presidential campaign!

On this 43rd Anniversary of the assassination of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, our first African American President, Barack Obama, announced his candidacy for a second term, in a You Tube video, and in emails to supporters.

Starting his campaign at the beginning of April allows early raising of campaign funds, with the estimate that Obama will raise a BILLION dollars, surpassing the three quarters of a billion dollars raised in 2008, an all time record!

The Republicans are hinting at running, but interestingly, no one has yet fully announced he or she is running, probably due to the reality that raising money to compete with Obama will be very difficult, and there are many doubts that anyone can realistically defeat Obama, with even the economy starting to improve noticeably, if slowly!

We will be witnessing a lot of demagoguery and silliness by the opposition party between now and November 6, 2012 but as long as Obama sticks to his basic message and works hard at his job, as he has done every day for over two years, the most challenging since the early years of Franklin D. Roosevelt, he will win re-election handily!
