President Obama goes into his re-election campaign with long odds and lots of critics. The New York Times’ Charles Blow observed: “To those unhappy on the left, he’s a corporatist, war-waging, pusillanimous pushover who is silver-tongued and rubber-spined. To those who most oppose him on the right, he is a socialist, spendthrift, republic-destroyer who is unfit, unqualified and literally, by way of his ‘Kenyan birth,’ ineligible to be president.” Blow added: “So Obama’s best chances of winning re-election may well hinge on his ability to re-energize and engage two of his largest, strongest groups of supporters who have mostly avoided the negative labeling: blacks and Hispanics. But that won’t necessarily be easy either.”
