Talk about a big “F’n” deal …
How bad is it for Barack Obama and his reelection chances in 2012? Obama has dispatched VP Joe Biden to the battleground states of Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida. YIKES!!! My how the mighty Obama has fallen. Obama won Ohio (52%-47%), Pennsylvania (55%-44%) and Florida (51%-48%) in 2008. Now Obama finds himself in a desperate way in all three states as he has managed to lose the Jewish, blue collar and Independent vote.
A year from Election Day, Democrats are crafting a campaign strategy for Vice President Joe Biden that targets the big three political battlegrounds: Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida, states where Biden might be more of an asset to President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign than the president himself.
The Biden plan underscores an uncomfortable reality for the Obama team. A shaky economy and sagging enthusiasm among Democrats could shrink the electoral map for Obama in 2012, forcing his campaign to depend on carrying the 67 electoral votes up for grabs in the three swing states.
Obama won all three states in 2008. But this time he faces challenges in each, particularly in Ohio and Florida, where voters elected Republican governors in the 2010 midterm elections.
So Obama’s answer for help in these three swing states is Joe Biden. Really, imagine that? Many have thought that Obama should swap out Biden for Hillary Clinton for the VP spot. Now we see that a desperate Obama needs Joe to appeal the the common folk and those individuals who cling to their Bibles and guns.
Sorry Democrats, if Joe Biden is your secret weapon to win OH, PA and FL … you are in deep trouble. Take a good look at what the three swing states have in store for them … go get ‘em Joe. EESH!!!
