Roemer Considers GOP Presidential Primary Challenge

Former Louisiana Governor Buddy Roemer is considering jumping into the GOP primary for President. This is all the buzz on social media sites and the journalists are spouting off about the story.

One journalist, NBC's Chuck Todd, referred to Buddy Roemer as the "gadfly" of the GOP primary, replacing Herman Cain in the role. Classy, right? Republicans have come to expect it, though. And with Barack Obama still their guy, it will only intensify as the time grows closer.

To add salt to the wound, Roemer was once a Democrat and switched to the GOP. The press never forgave him for that move.

The drumbeat of the press for the re-election of President Obama in 2012 is in high intensity. As previously predicted here, Team Obama has a loyal partner in the U.S. media, both in print and on air.

Here's the latest in-your-face example:
Just four months after posting historic election gains, Republicans are experiencing a reality check about 2012: President Barack Obama is going to be a lot tougher to defeat than he looked late last year.

Having gone from despondency in 2008 to euphoria last November, a more sober GOP is wincing in the light of day as they consider just how difficult unseating an incumbent president with a massive war chest is going to be, even with a still-dismal economy.

It is unclear of whom the writer is speaking about that consider Obama as easy pickings for defeat in 2012. Serious political watchers understand that an incumbent president is a powerful candidate. This president, in particular, will be a strong candidate given his team's ability to raise money and craft the appearance of moderation from him. It is predicted the 2012 presidential campaign will be the first to break the one billion dollar mark.

Money is power.
