The 2012 presidential race is on. Kinda.
At the moment, it feels more like a wade through treacle – so slow is the pace of President Barack Obama’s opponents. Mr Obama can be unambiguous that he is going to run because they are all showing varying degrees of hesitancy.

?Make no mistake,? Obama is a big fan of his own catchphrases

Earlier this month American president Barack Obama openly reneged on two important issues. First came the announcement that legal trials at US prison camp Guantanamo Bay would recommence. And then, just a few days later, followed Obama’s statement that the widely condemned treatment of Bradley Manning, the soldier accused of leaking classified files to WikiLeaks, was “appropriate and meeting our basic standards”.
Libya is not Iraq but on Monday, March 28, 2011, US President Barack Obama delivered an address that aimed to brand a pre-emptive war and sell it to the American people. Obama sought to justify intervention into Libya by making the case that it was in America?s interest to act and if action had not been taken a mass atrocity could have taken place.
