    The campaign funds is one of the main issues in the election, as the Republicans accused Democrats of spending $1 billion in the reelection bid of Obama. Such accusation was denied by Obama’s campaign manager Jim Messina who said that the president is not keen on spending that big amount of money just to retain his post.

    Messina said their campaign was able to gather 1.3 million donors, 200,000 of whom gave for the first time ever during the last quarter. He revealed that 98 percent of donations were $250 or less, with an average donation of $55.

    Republican Solon Apologizes For Saying That Michelle Obama Has A Large Butt

    24. December 2011

    The politics in the United States for the forthcoming presidential election in 2012 is getting hotter and more personal.

    A Republican congressman recently apologized to US First Lady Michelle Obama after he said that the latter has a big butt inside the Delta Lounge at Reagan National Airport outside Washington. Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner sent a note of apology to the wife of President Barrack Obama for his inappropriate and below the belt statement.

    Sensenbrenner earlier made the unsavory statement after Obama made a strong crusade to fight obesity by eating healthy foods. He said the wife of the president has no reason to make such a crusade since she herself had a “large posterior.”

    The First Lady at the moment had yet to issue an official statement regarding the incident. The First Lady has become a fashion icon and role model for women, and an advocate for poverty awareness and healthy eating.

    The quest of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich to take the nomination of the Republican party in the November 2012 presidential election, against United States president and Democratic party member Barrack Obama is gaining ground.

    This developed after Gingrich took the lead in the recent presidential poll among Republican hopefuls in Iowa. According to reports, Gingrich gain the backing of 25 percent of Republican supporters in the area which is up by seven percent in late October.

    Based on the survey conducted by The Des Moines Register newspaper, it was learned that Texas Representative Ron Paul and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney finished second and third, with support at 18 percent and 16 percent, respectively. The survey also shows that support for Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann and former pizza magnate Herman Cain, who dropped out of the race on Saturday, was tied at 8 percent.

    Texas Governor Rick Perry and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum each drew 6 percent, and former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman rounded out the field at 2 percent. It was learned that while Gingrich has reasons to smile on the latest survey, Romney had reason to be sad since hi 22 percent support in the area in late October dropped to only 16 percent.

    The decline in Romney’s popularity rating had been blamed on his past backing for abortion rights and a Massachusetts healthcare overhaul that was a precursor of Obama’s federal law. The recent political survey was made last November 27-30 and was based on telephone interviews with 401 Republicans who are likely to attend the caucuses.

    The margin of error is plus or minus 4.9 percentage points. Moreover, it was reported that in 2008, the same poll was conducted and correctly predicted wins for former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee in the Republican contest and Obama, then a senator, in the Democratic caucus.

    Here is a piece of bad news to all the ardent supporters of United States president Barrack Obama, who is seeking reelection in 2012.

    A recent report state that no less than the late Apple Chief Operating Officer (CEO) Steve Jobs has predicted that he will just be a one-term president. Yes, you heard it right guys! Even after his death, Jobs is still creating a buzz in the US political scene.

    According to reports, when Jobs met Obama in 2010, he bluntly told the president that will not win his re-election bid. Jobs said Obama will not get a second term in his presidential post due to the pervasive anti-business climate in his administration.

    Jobs cited excessive federal regulations and operating costs for businesses as harmful legacies of the Obama White House. Despite the revelation of Jobs, which can be found in his soon to be released biography penned by Walter Isaacson, Obama and his supporters are very confident he can win re-election next year.

    Based on the latest political survey in the US, despite the ailing economy of America, Obama still takes a slim lead against his possible Republican rivals. Jobs was a co-founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of Apple Inc.

    Jobs was co-founder and previously served as chief executive of Pixar Animation Studios; he became a member of the board of directors of the Walt Disney Company in 2006, following the acquisition of Pixar by Disney.

    In the wake of the rising popularity of the Republicans, United States vice president Joe Biden expressed confidence he would remain as the running mate of President Barrack Obama on his reelection bid next year.

    Biden said there is no question he will remain as the number two man in the Democratic presidential ticket in the 2012 presidential election. Earlier, some sectors speculated that Biden will be replaced as vice presidential tandem of Obama to boost the chances of the Democrats in the forthcoming election next year.

    Biden said there is no more question that he will be back as vice presidential candidate next year, since Obama assured him that there is no changes in his ticket for next year’s election. He said once the president made the statement, no Democrats is anymore questioning his decision to retain him as vice presidential candidate in the election.

    The 2012 US presidential election is projected by political analysts as a close race between Obama and the Republican ticket. Political observers said the bad economic state of America made Republicans a big chance to take the presidency away from Obama.

    Obama however, remain a strong contender to retain his position in the latest survey where he is leading by a slight margin against his opponents. Biden was a United States Senator from Delaware from January 3, 1973 until his resignation on January 15, 2009, following his election to the Vice Presidency.

    Barrack Obama Says 9/11 Attacks Made US Stronger

    11. September 2011

    Instead of being weakened the United States had become much stronger after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks which killed 3,000 people in America.

    Marking the 10th anniversary of the infamous attack which shattered to pieces the World Trade Center in New York, Obama said the tragedy gave more fire to the Americans to rebuild itself and battle terrorism fiercely around the world. Obama said through the strong efforts of the American people especially the military, Al Qaeda which spearheaded the attacks is now weaker after the death of its leader Osama Bin Laden and the arrest of its members around the world.

    He said his administration will continue to pursue efforts to totally eradicate terrorism around the world and protect civilians from the clutches of the Al Qaeda. To ensure the safe commemoration of the September 11 attacks, New York authorities have beef up security in the whole city.A lot of checkpoints have been installed to thwart any car or truck bomb attacks from terrorists out to disrupt the celebration.

    The US intelligence community are also now exerting efforts to arrest the persons behind these terrorist plots. Rudolph Giuliani, the mayor of New York at the time of the attacks, said the country still had work to do to become better prepared for further threats.

    Guiliani said the US fores have  made significant improvements in intelligence gathering and in airport security but authorities need to work more especially in improving security in the port. The September 11 attacks (also referred to as September 11, September 11th or 9/11) were a series of four coordinated suicide attacks upon the United States in New York City and Washington, D.C., on September 11, 2001.

    On that Tuesday morning, 19 terrorists from the Islamist militant group Al-Qaeda hijacked four passenger jets. The hijackers intentionally crashed two planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City; both towers collapsed within two hours. Hijackers crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. The fourth jet, United Airlines Flight 93, crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after passengers attempted to take control before it could reach the hijacker’s intended target in Washington, D.C.
