Team Obama has announced that they will unveil a physical 20-page “Blueprint for America’s Future” today, answering accusations from the Romney campaign that they Obama doesn’t have a second term agenda.Of course, one might find it strange that Obama waited till 14 days before the election before finally revealing what he is going to do.
With so little time, cartoonist A. F. Branco knew what you were thinking:
But luckily for us, Obama's plans are no mystery:
Not surprisingly, the glossy pamphlet borrows heavily from President Obama’s campaign speeches. Half of each page is used to defend the president’s first term, and attack Mitt Romney, while only offering vague prescriptions for change.Similarly, according to CNN, the only thing new about this stuff is the fancy cover.
So there really is nothing new here.
But if we are supposed to have known what Obama's plan is -- why is there a need to come out with this now?
It would appear that the man who thought he would change the world through the power of his words and personality is having a heck of a time convincing Americans that he deserves a second term in office.
Note: Ed Morrissey puts Obama's last minute presentation of an agenda a little less delicately than I do:
This would be hilarious if it weren’t so … well, hilarious, really, but in a very sad way. The Barack Obama campaign officially launched in April 2011. They have raised something close to a billion dollars, and they’ve certainly spent almost as much on field offices, GOTV efforts, and tons of campaign advertising. They even created their fantasy of a woman living under Barack Obama’s benevolent governance, “Julia,” that managed to creep out so many women that they have done their best to send Julia to the Island of Misfit Political Mascots.
The one thing they didn’t have is a reason for anyone to vote for Barack Obama — a second-term agenda.
