Speaking to a small group of about 50 supporters who paid over $35,000 to attend a fundraising event, President Obama assured the crowed that he will win in 2012.
“Now, I know that, over the last couple of months, there have been Democrats who voiced concerns and nervousness about, well, in this kind of economy, isn’t this just —aren’t these just huge headwinds in terms of your reelection?,” Obama said at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in Washington D.C. Thursday night.
“And I just have to remind people that— here’s one thing I know for certain: The odds of me being reelected are much higher than the odds of me being elected in the first place.
… we remain very confident about our ability to win a contest of ideas in 2012 — as long as we can get the message out.”
A great attitude.
The problem is, the message seems to be falling by the wayside. Even some members of the President’s own party and members of the so called liberal media appear to get a certain pleasure from nitpicking every single piece of that message. And in addition to his own party throwing that message under the bus, Conservatives have taken Rush Limbaugh’s message to heart. They are on their own mission through lies and propaganda, to make certain this President fails.
No ones saying that everything the President does must be defended, but if the President’s re-election depends on his message getting out, maybe it’s time his party join the choir and get the message right.
