Comparing the Campaigns of 2012 Obama to 2008 Obama

Thursday, August 23, 2012

In 2008, hope and change were Barack Obama's rallying cries, and tens of thousands showed up to hear him speak.

Election 2012: The Year Ahead

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Although some GOP hopefuls have been informally campaigning since this time last year and Barack Obama announced his campaign for reelection back in April, the January 3rd caucus will be the true beginning for the 2012 presidential race.

President Obama asks for time, patience and understanding

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Last night in his second primetime takeover, President Obama took on a familiar tone in addressing the nation. The same "we mean business" tone we heard from him on the campaign trail last fall came back last night and it was a far cry from the lighthearted Obama the nation saw last week with Jay Leno. He hit hard on the economy going over his budget, the state of race in this country and the cost of war. Joining The Takeaway with an assessment of the appearance is Adam Nagourney, from our partner the New York Times, and Glenn Thrush of Politico.

"We're in a process moment, we're not in an inspirational moment in terms of where he is on this budget."
—Politico correspondent Glenn Thrush in reaction to Obama's recent press conference
