The White House Office of the Press Secretary Statement by the President This morning, in an unspeakable tragedy, a number of Americans were shot in Tucson, Arizona, at a constituent meeting with Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. And while we are continuing to receive information, we know that some have passed away, and that Representative Giffords is gravely wounded. We do not yet have all the answers. What we do know is […]
Confident that he’d have a chance to win, Rudy Giuliani is rounding up his top political advisers for a possible 2012 presidential run, sources tell Page Six. Sources say the tough-talking former mayor “thinks the Republican race will be populated with far-right candidates like Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee, and there’s opportunity for a moderate candidate with a background in national security.” Giuliani has even scheduled a trip […]

Alvin Greene has decided to mad a bid for President in 2012. He related to a local radio show, that he is upset with the Democratic party’s lack of support for his Senate Bid against Senator Jim DeMint and will run as a Republican. This comes after the GOP and Tea Party got behind and African-American Candidate in SC, Tim Scott. Scott was able to beat the grand son for Strom Thurmond in the Primaries and easley beat the Democrat candidate in the Midterm. Greene figures he should get better support from the GOP.
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
Hillary’s campaign for the Democrat nomination for president in 2012 began last June 8, when, during an interview with an Ecuadorean television reporter, she announced the Department of Justice’s plan to bring a lawsuit against Arizona’s immigration act. The conventional wisdom among news outlets back then was that while speaking off-script, she prematurely “let the cat out of the bag” — so wrote the Huffington Post. The episode was widely […]
