Tony Lee of Human Events reports:
President Barack Obama launched his reelection campaign with a web video. While at first blush the timing of the announcement may be puzzling because the optics imply that Obama is more focused on politicking instead of being serious about the budget and Libya, I think his announcement this week is a brilliant piece of political strategy. Obama has been getting some unfavorable coverage from the mainstream media, so now that he has officially announced his candidacy for reelection, the mainstream media and the White House press corps will surely put on their Obama jerseys again and give him favorable coverage. MSM men will get tingles up their legs and women will get all hot and tingly over the Big O’s speeches and optics.
With this bias and tilted playing field in mind, it is more imperative for prospective GOP presidential candidates to be effective messengers. I suggest that each candidate listen to 9 innings of legendary Dodgers announcer Vin Scully to learn how to better communicate with voters. Here’s my piece on the lessons the GOP can learn from Vin Scully.
