Obama jumped into the primary scene portrayed to be as clean as the wind driven snow, his past was covered-up while the personal lives of others were either exposed or fictionalized. From out of the clouds above came hope and change, opportunity for all. In 2008 not only did Obama win high percentages of both black and Hispanic voters, he walked away with the highest percentage of white voters of any liberal since LBJ.
BuzzFeed: “President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign has spent more than $100 million on advertising over the last 3 months. Much, if not most, of it has been produced to shred Mitt Romney’s reputation and suppress turnout among white voters who might vote for Romney. The outlook for August is more of the same. The outlook for September and October is probably a lot more of the same.
The 2012 president election, boiled down to its remaining variables, is about two things: (1) white voters who voted for Barrack Obama last time and have since grown disillusioned and, (2) white voters who stayed home in 2008 rather than vote for John McCain but may vote this time. The Obama campaign’s goal is to make both groups stay home rather than vote.”
In 2008 hope and change was defined as a bipartisan effort to improve America. Partisanship quickly took center stage, the efforts to improve were not approved by the people. In 2011 the Tea Party took over, a true representation of American people. The other day they returned to elect Cruz. The black and Hispanic sectors are said to be eliminating themselves.
