    The 2012 Election According to Plouffe

    The 2012 Election According to Plouffe

    It’s all about the message:

    Top Obama adviser says unemployment won’t be key in 2012

    President Obama’s senior political adviser David Plouffe said Wednesday that people won’t vote in 2012 based on the unemployment rate.

    Well no, of course it will not be about unemployment, considering the numbers continue to look dismal:

    Jobs Picture Gets Even Worse as Rate Swells to 9.2%

    U.S. employment growth ground to a halt in June, with employers hiring the fewest number of workers in nine months, dousing hopes the economy would regain momentum in the second half of the year.

     Since the election will not be about unemployment, let’s try to guess what it will be about:

    • The national debt? Nah.
    • Annual budget deficits? Nah.
    • The rise of Islamism in formerly friendly nations? Nah.
    • The stifling of U.S. energy production through excessive regulation? Nah.
    • Obamacare? Nah.

    Just what will the 2012 election be about in the gospel according to Plouffe?

    Let me guess:

    • Children’s safety versus corporate jet owners.
    • Saving Grandma from being thrown over the cliff.
    • Fairness.
    • Pulling us out of the ditch.
    • Bush.

    Any other suggestions?

    Plouffe fancies himself a Jedi Knight: “These are not the droids you’re looking for, and unemployment is not the issue you care about…”

    It sure won’t be about what a compelling speaker or hopeychangey “no red states, no blue states” healer of the planet false messiah that it was last time. It’ll be vitriol, whining, sneering, and condescension (along with all the fake crises and bitter blaming) . . . I’m thinking America’s not going to rally around that message.
