Barack Obama Launches Bid for Re-election in 2012 [Video]

President Obama has announced his 2012 re-election campaign this morning. Included in an email that went out to supporters was this video, in which Obama himself doesn't actually address anyone. Instead, supporters hailing from states like North Carolina, Nevada, Michigan, and Colorado speak. Mike, a New Yorker too young to vote in 2008, gives his two cents as well.

Though some Republicans have criticized the timing of the announcement, The Note points out that George W. Bush and Bill Clinton both announced their second term bids around this same time in previous years.
