Today it became official. Barack Obama is going to run for reelection in 2012. He plans on raising $1 billion for his campaign fund. He'll probably do it too.
I wasn't too surprised by the news. As soon as he condescended to sign the extension of the Bush Tax Cuts, I knew he was making a show of moving to the center. Today, right after the announcement, he made another campaign promise to persuade the independent voters that he really is a centrist. He had the attorney general say that he will have military trials for the terrorists at GITMO. Look for more signs that he is moving toward the center.
After he convinces the voters that he is not the left leaning, socialist we have seen these past two and a half years he will be reelected. The day after he is confirmed as the winner, he will again show his true colors and cancel everything he has done to be reelected. He will do everything in his power to "buy" his reelection.
I hate to be such a pessimist, but I just don't trust the man.
