President Obama must decide now how he wants to govern in the two years leading up to the 2012 presidential election.
In recent days, he has offered differing visions of how he might approach the country’s problems. At one point, he spoke of the need for “mid-course corrections.” At another, he expressed a desire to take ideas from both sides of the aisle. And before this month’s midterm elections, he said he believed that the next two years would involve “hand-to-hand combat” with Republicans, whom he also referred to as “enemies.”
It is clear that the president is still trying to reach a resolution in his own mind as to what he should do and how he should do it.
This is a critical moment for the country. From the faltering economy to the burdensome deficit to our foreign policy struggles, America is suffering a widespread sense of crisis and anxiety about the future. Under these circumstances, Obama has the opportunity to seize the high ground and the imagination of the nation once again, and to galvanize the public for the hard decisions that must be made. The only way he can do so, though, is by putting national interests ahead of personal or political ones.
To that end, we believe Obama should announce immediately that he will not be a candidate for reelection in 2012

Recently, the millionaires’ club known as the US senate voted to cut off unemployment benefits for millions of Americans. One senator called unemployment insurance a “necessary evil”. He got that half right. Do any of these fat cats know what it’s like to be unemployed? To not know how you will feed your children and pay your mortgage? I’m unemployed, and, if elected, I can teach the Harvard rich kids […]

One of the frustrations of political challengers is getting the incumbent to debate. Ray Lutz, a Democratic candidate in the 52nd Congressional District in eastern San Diego County, has a novel approach: a hunger strike until one-term Republican incumbent Duncan D. Hunter agrees to debate. “Until Hunter steps up to the plate, I’ll be stepping away from the dinner plate,” Lutz said. The hunger strike is set to officially begin […]
(Columbia, SC – July 14, 2010) Liberal Democrat Rob Miller’s campaign released a inaccurate and unsourced attack on Representative Joe Wilson this afternoon, trying to link him to lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
