Obama returns for a second term in 2012

The headline:  Obama re-election launches with email, website

The link:  http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110404/ap_on_el_ge/us_obama2012

The summary:  President Barack Obama formally announces his bid for re-election in 2012.

The reaction:  This really comes as a surprise to no one.  What will be interesting is how his campaign platform will compare to that of 2008.  Then, he campaigned on a platform of change but now he’s dealing with the fallout from a crippling financial crisis, an unpopular health care reform bill and an economy that has still not recovered.  Republicans are ready to pounce after a successful 2010 election but who will challenge Obama remains a mystery.
