New Year 2012
Dick Clark should run for GOP
2011 was an interesting year indeed. 2012 promises to the very interesting year. We have presidential election in November 2012, there are many people on both sides of the political spectrum that have a lot invested in outcome of that election. The smart money says President Obama will win reelection. There are many of you. Reading this will not agree my assessment; President Obama has numerous victories in this past year that will merit his reelection.
President Obama’s most recent victory was the extension of the job tax credit. Despite of a Republican Party’s major focus is to disrupt and stonewall All President Obama’s ideas, he has prevailed. In spite of Republican opposition and obstruction, president Obama has won success on many fronts.
The killing of Osama bin Laden, the killing of Muammar Gaddaafi, stock market record single day in trading volume in the last eight years, and improving job market and economy will surely guarantee president Obama’s reelection. Granted this is something many who oppose him do not wish to hear. So let’s give credit where credit is due!
We can’t talk about President Obama’s reelection bid without stressing how Republican candidates are pretty much assuring his reelection. The field GOP candidates are a latter-day version of the Keystone cops. It’s hilarious think that anyone can really take any of them seriously, with a notable exception of Mitt Romney. He is the only serious candidate; however, his Republican brethren are jumping over him to find someone else.
There are many pundits in the media who were giving us caution not to get excited about 2012. Granted we’re not out of the woods yet, we must concede that things are notably better than when President Obama first took office. Of course his Republican counterparts will never give him his due.
Republican field of candidates have been plagued with controversy, sex scandals, affairs and conflict of interest. It will be interesting to see who will get the eventual nomination. The Republican Party doesn’t have much to work with. They are so desperate to be President Obama in 2012 that they are throwing as much mud up against the wall to see what sticks. This is desperation in its truest sense.
Given all the obstruction and stonewalling President Obama has had to endure, it will be interesting to see if they (Republicans) will make any attempt to work with him after he is reelected. The American public has grown tired gridlock on the Beltway, it is my sincere hope that both houses of Congress and all of our representatives and senators on both sides of the isle will come together and work for the greater good of our country. That is my hope and wish for 2012.
