Obama Launches 2012 Presidential Campaign On Twitter

Tyler Durden's picture


Literally moments ago, Barack Obama tweeted the announcement of the start of his 2012 campaign. In a surprise to nobody in particular, the president stated that he plans to file the necessary papers with the Federal Election Commission today in order to begin campaign fundraising, further tweeting: "While I stay focused on the job you elected me to do, the work of laying the foundation for our campaign must start today." Perhaps this finally means that the USD is due for a bounce as the concerted effort at destroying the US currency will be slightly delayed among all the takes for various campaign clips like the one below. As for his competition, a poll by Farleigh Dickinson university has the President outperforming most competitors except for Mike Huckabee, with whom he is locked in a dead heat: "The president steamrolls former Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin by a 20-point margin, 54%-34%. The president also wins easily - 48%-34% - over the only major Republican to have formed an exploratory committee for the 2012 election, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty. And the president handily beats the former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, by 15 points, 52%-37%. The president runs even with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee 46%-46% and about even with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, 44%-43%." Of course, what happens to Obama's reelection chances is directly proportional to just three factors: jobs, the price of gas, and the stock market. Alas, while the jobs number is improving courtesy of the continued exodus of disgusted former workers from the workforce, the latter two factors are now mutually exclusive, and any further gains in the RUT will necessarily come at the expense of further cuts in affordable transportation distance, and vice versa, which naturally leads us to the question of what Goldman will order its subordinate at the FRBNY Bill Dudley to do: as usual it all boils down to this: "To QE or not to QE. That is the question."

Isn't there something left in the Constitution prohibiting cruel and unusual punishment, or did they already remove that one?  Because that's what this announcement constitutes.

Can we just not do this?  I mean, at least here, on ZH.  Can we just pretend there is no 2012 election cycle and talk about fun stuff instead?  I really don't want to go through this.  We just "elected" this guy what seems like weeks ago, or at least judging by the lack of accomplishments it sure feels that way.  So can we just pretend this isn't happening and talk about more joyful topics like, I don't know, radiation emanating from Japan, or shocking hikes in the price of oil and food?

"can we just pretend there is no 2012 election cycle and talk about fun stuff instead?"

I hear what you are saying, it is a real Debby Downer, but I thought part of the whole point of Zero Hedge was to discuss stuff that others don't because it is not fun. I look at it (discussing the current presidents ACTIONS) as necessary evil, as long as we can do so w/o being divided in divisive dialogue. Even then it is necessary...along with understanding where the true power resides...behind the throne.

And as far as socialism being the only acceptable future? If you'd prefer to live in a failing Euro-socialist country why don't you just move to Europe?

Admittedly I don't know much about the guy, but I am of the impression that Huckabee is a Christian Fundamentalist who will happily scorch the entire middle east to kick start the Rapture.  The thought of him having his finger on the big red launch button scares the living crap out of me.

To the anonymous junker: I appreciate your well thought out attempt to correct my apparently erroneous impression of the man.

Well, Huck is never going to run on the same ticket as Mitt, and certainly not in second place.  But as much as I like Mitt, the difficult reality is that he is too attuned to the upper class of America to really connect with the working class; and they will make the difference in this election.  Mitt is a brilliant manager (his work on turning around the 2002 Winter Olympics was incredible), so I hope I am wrong on the electoral calculus, but that remains to be seen.

Don't be too quick, Seasmoke.  McDonalds is hiring 50,000 people on April 19th:

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- McDonald's said Monday that it is planning a one-day hiring spree of 50,000 new workers on April 19 for its U.S. restaurants.

McDonald's said that these new "Mcjobs" will include crew and management positions, part-time and full-time.

he said the average pay for the jobs is $8.30 an hour. That's compared to the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour, though in some states the minimum wage is higher. She said that restaurant managers can make $50,000 a year.

This announcement from McDonald's is just the latest sign of an improving job market. On Friday, the U.S. government announced a gain of 216,000 jobs in March, pushing the unemployment rate down to 8.8%, its lowest level in two years.

Tig Gilliam, CEO of staffing giant Adecco , says his firm is handling surging placements for engineers, computer professionals and accountants. Many employers, spoiled by a big pool of jobless workers, now seek college degrees even for customer service jobs."Clients still (can) pick and choose," saysRoy Krause, CEO of staffing firm Spherion. Meanwhile, the battle for skilled workers is becoming fiercer. Many job candidates are getting multiple offers for the first time in the recovery, says Evan Davis , chief operating officer of MRINetwork, an executive search firm.

Jobs Added in Variety of Industries

Data from the Labor Department shows that the optimistic numbers spread across a variety of industries. In March, 17,000 new jobs were added in manufacturing, 37,000 in health care, and 78,000 jobs in professional and business sectors. For private sector industries, there have now been 13 straight months of growth.

It’s a criminal plan that TARP was paid for by The Taxpayers to save the banks from extinction, only for them to revive and viciously attack the hands that feed them. Henry Paulson should be charged with Treason for using The Taxpayers' Money to re-arm The Banks of Mass Destruction. The Banking Cartel is waging war against American Citizens, and it won’t be happy until every savings account is drained, every homeowner is broke & evicted, every credit card holder is “paying” 24.9% + $88/ mo. in overlimit and late fees, and every house is in their possession.

His biggest success was becoming less obese (2nd derivative positive), and credits "divine intervention" for his political success.

There should be a simple test for all candidates:

1. Do you believe in evolution (if not go back to barista school).

2. Define the difference between Monetary and Fisical Policy.

3. Can you find Libya on a Map?

Pretty sure based on those 3 questions, that the winner in 2012 will be the same as 2008:Dimon/Blankfein.

...credits "divine intervention" for his political success.

This is the part that bothers me.  While I don't mind if folks have their particular beliefs, the Rapture crowd, of which I believe Huckabee is a member, absolutely terrifies me, just because they actively want to influence specific world events in order to realize their Messianic aspirations.  I believe Huck is a Zionist of the highest order, which I also find discomforting.

Having been raised a Mormon (left at age 13), I realize that Romney is also a member of the end times crowd, but unless something's changed with the LDS in the last 20+ years since I left, I don't recall LDS position being "we need to help Armageddon along" by starting WWIII in the MidEast. 

I get the impression that the Rapture crowd takes a decidely on the end times ie Start WWIII, live out Revelations, Jesus shows up, party like rock stars.

Made a quick few grand last week on FOREX and closed my account today, withdrew all my money.

Reason I gave for closing account:  manipulation of the entire markets, not free markets anymore

Until they fix the corruption, the lies, and green stock shoots everyday, I'm done. They ain't gonna steal back what I just took from their asses.

hahahahah..good job, i was recently questioned why i had left the equities markets also(didnt totally leave, but more then 90% was transfed out 2.5 yrs ago) gave a similiar reason..the charts were proven to me to be to manipuleted. i've found trading on a roullette table to be much more consistant, regulated, and just good sportsmanship when losses occure.

when i had been implementing trades akin to what LTCM was doing(in cash however, 180+ trades daily in futures and equities) and found that private bankers could simply "remove credit" from the markets, and sink ship the way they did. My broker got nervous....180 trades daily is alot in commisions for them. However by that time i had transferd a large chunk of it into PM' those PM's are sittin in a hole in the ground...and my brokers pissed.

looking closely at a 100yr DOW chart in bar format says it all to me...until that changes, i'll be diggin more holes.

oh...and anything less then RON PAUL for KING is a waste. I think he'd give us back our 30 days or less.

I hope you withdrew your "money" in the form of commodities. If you withdrew dollars, they're already stealing it back as I type.

Tyler, this sentence split my skull open, and it now hurts:

"Alas, while the jobs number is improving courtesy of the continued exodus of disgusted former workers from the workforce, the latter two factors are now mutually exclusive, and any further gains in the RUT will necessarily come at the expense of further cuts in affordable transportation distance, and vice versa, which naturally leads us to the question of what Goldman will order its subordinate at the FRBNY Bill Dudley to do..."  and it does not even end there.

But, the people like to think they have a say in the country. What a scam these elections have become. 

Health care will still be insane, medicare and social security will be kicked down the road until it can be no more, defense spending will stay par for the course, small token cuts will be made to appease those following the shills, ad nauseum. Wake me up when it comes down to cuts in SS vs cuts in defense.

Ron/Rand 2012--Only chance to repeal the (anti) Patriot act, and bring our boys home.

Obummer will probably win because the other side will be so fragmented.  As long as they don't have a supermajority in congress it doesn't really matter if he/mitt/huck wins.  It will be business as usual.  They will all suck up to the monied interests.

imagine if $5 trillion went short the market? the tape goes down, so does the liklihood of his re election. will the tape be higher by nov 2012, let's see what the market says.


Or imagine if someone forced delivery on a shitload of silver contracts. Or imagine if 20% of the population withdrew all of their FRN's from the banks. Imagine; because that's all it will ever be. Without the current system there would be no master. No slaves. And no one left to bitch about it all. See the problem? Barry will be reelected in much the same way Wilson was elected in 1912, with similar end results.

Totally down for know, if McCain and Palin weren't so goddamn stupid in 08 they could have made their campaign more social media-oriented and grabbed the younger votes they so crucially needed.  Obama's got a hold of the younger generations for sure, this is a smart move by him.
