"........After a rocky 2013 that saw his poll numbers sag, Obama will look to re-launch his second term during a State of the Union address later this month that will set the tone for the midterm elections.
White House officials acknowledge theres much to do on the heels of the presidents two-week vacation in Hawaii.
......To bolster the chances for Democratic Senate candidates and Obamas agenda, White House aides are looking to tap into the themes of fairness and equalitywhich they believe helped Obama win the presidency twice.
Part and parcel of that effort is the immediate push on extending unemployment benefits, an efffot that started before Obama flew to Honolulu. Obama is expected to hold an event to push the issue early this week.
In the same vein, they plan to aggressively push to hike the minimum wage to $10.10, backing a recent proposal by Congressional Democrats.
Both issues are intended to telegraph a message about the inequality gap in the country, underlining differences with Republicans that the White House and Democrats think can be exploited in an election year.
Its a fight were happy to have, said the White House official.........."

We make this promise to one another because it makes a difference to a mother who needs help feeding her kids while shes looking for work; to a father who needs help paying the rent while learning the skills to get a new and better job. And denying families that security is just plain cruel. Were a better country than that. We dont abandon our fellow Americans when times get tough we keep the faith with them until they start that new job." - Barack Obama
I didn’t know her life was so onerous that the misus needs extra time to enjoy her 50th birthday bash.
Both funded by US taxpayers. What a joke ‘birthday gift from the president’! Let me see the receipt that Baraq paid for it.
Translation: media looks to rescue Obama by helping him to employ good ole class warfare to shift focus from Onamacare.
White House handout
So he’s going to “relaunch” or simply flush?
I’m for Relaunching Him. With the ultimate trajectory aimed at GITMO.
He could continue pretending all he wants. Fact is, obamacare is going to turn the country totally against him.
Among his many sins, Obama cancelled my health insurance to award his Democrat voters. There is nothing he can do in this lifetime that will make me forgive him for that. Nothing. And anyone who supports him in any form or fashion, I will consider as an enemy to the well being of me or my family.
Taking a mulligan is he?
This ain’t a game. You don’t get to re-do history.
And it is pointless to attempt to re-do ANYTHING by doubling down on Stupid.
They believe that they can “BS” their way out of anything.
Let’s leave him bogged, thanks.
I figured we would see “Obama’s Pivot to the Economy, v. 5.1” but apparently our Dear Leader has given up on doing anything to create real jobs (not that he knows how, but I thought he would pretend again). Instead, we’ll get the media claiming that the economy is fixed and those who are unemployed or out of the workforce are rare exceptions, while Obama stirs up class warfare as a campaign issue.
The Obamas have made the steakhouse, which serves traditional Hawaiian fare and appetizers including Ahi sashimi, calamari, spring rolls and wontons, their last stop before heading to the airport in recent years.
Earlier Saturday, the president golfed at Marine Corps Base Hawaii. His approximately three-hour round, with aide Marvin Nicholson and White House chef Sam Kass, was the fastest of his vacation, according to a pool reporter." Source
He’s destroying the economy - jobs aren’t coming back - it’s not getting better on purpose, so he champions upping entry level job minimum wages, extending unemployment benefits and ramps up class warfare.
What a guy.
I guess that’s what he means by inequality.
Why should anyone listen to anything that fool has to say? http://www.libertyfederation.com/33_shocking_facts_which_show_how_badly_the_economy_has_tanked_since_obama_became_president
“They believe that they can BS their way out of anything.”
With the media on his side, he can and probably will.
With a press still willing to carry Obama's water, they can.
Anybody got those metrics for 'fairness' and 'inequality' handy? Politicians love these buzz words because they are completely unmeasurable and totally subjective. If you are into victimhood, Obama's base supporters, you love somebody who says he will help you. There is no logic and I predict that Jay Carney will be spouting White House (WH) illogic until he finally screams and leaves.
Lots to look forward to as well as dread! This is the kind of WH policy that will add a lot to the non-law passing Agency Regulation push. Oh joy!

The problem is not Obama wants to re-launch and media lapdogs think they can erase last year.
THE PROBLEM IS GOPe (i.e. current GOP in power) want to go along with him.
Re-launch? More like de-louse.
Lot more on that list.
