Obama's re-election campaign for 2012 may already be underway! As soon as President Barack Obama's re-election paperwork is filed, he will be able to begin the much needed fundraising process for his 2012 presidential bid. The question now is will those who voted for him in 2008, vote for him again in 2012?
Obama's campaign headquarters will once again be based in Chicago. It will be at the same site where his 2008 presidential campaign was located. If President Barack Obama's re-election efforts are successful then he will have made history again by being not only the first black president but being the first black president to serve two terms.
Speaking to Democratic supporters at a March 4th event, Obama said, Â“I canÂ’t get reelected and make sure that weÂ’re carrying on the mandate that you gave us two and a half years ago unless IÂ’ve got everybody here all in. We donÂ’t just want your money. We want your time and we want your energy. We want your ideas. We want you passionate about this being important.Â”
The cost of his re-election campaign is expected to be much more than his 2008 presidential campaign. Supporters and critics are wondering if Obama will once again reject public financing like he did back then. There's no word from him at this time about that issue.
President Barack Obama will face a harder road this time around because he has lost some supporters. It's easier to be the new, charismatic guy on the block but he's already two years into his presidency and not everyone is happy with the way he's handled some issues. His re-election campaign will also pit him against some major players so it's hard to tell at this stage how well he will do.
Are you going to support Obama's re-election efforts by voting for him in 2012?
