    I had to read halfway thru the 2nd article on Obama's "campaign opener" before spotting this.

    While his stump speech did copy some pages from past playbooks, one aspect of most presidential re-election pitches was absent from the president’s opening salvo: the introduction of a clear second-term agenda.

    Instead, the president’s stump speech was all about protecting his first-term achievements like the health care reform law and developing alternative energy sources. And while, historically, second terms are mostly about preserving such accomplishments, there is usually at least a vague nod to what the president wants to get done in a second term.

    But that was missing in Saturday’s speeches. Perhaps by the convention, the president will have a more direct pitch about what another four years will look like.


    First Read - Analysis: Obama re-election launch seeks to define stakes of campaign

    Why am I not surprised? FORWARD!

    Why am I not surprised how much of his speech was simply an attack on Romney? FORWARD!

    Why am I not surprised to read that in OH the hall was not filledl? FORWARD!

    My own "analysis?"

    That ain't the way to win elections, son.

    Kinda difficult to boast on your achievements when they're of such a dubious nature.

    Noun, verb, Bin Laden dead.....

    Prepare for a total scorched Earth campaign...It's pretty much all he has.

    If he wins this one, I'm sure he'll try to make that happen.
