With the GOP nominee almost a certainty, the two-man race is about to begin. President Obama is about to hit the campaign trail, now that his presumed GOP opponent has virtually been named – all that is left is the convention in Florida, making Mitt Romney the official nominee. This coming Saturday, the President and First Lady Michelle Obama will kick of his campaign for a second term by holding two public rallies in Columbus, Ohio, and Richmond, Virginia. There he is expected to speak about his accomplishments thus far and to spell out in detail the very real stakes in this election.
After the 2008 election of President Barack Obama, many proclaimed that the country had entered a post-racial era in which race was no longer an issue. However, a new large-scale study shows that racial attitudes have already played a substantial role in 2012, during the Republican primaries. They may play an even larger role in this year's presidential election. The study, led by psychologists at the University of Washington, shows that between January and April 2012 eligible voters who favored whites over blacks – either consciously or unconsciously – also favored Republican candidates relative to Barack Obama.
WASHINGTON (NNPA) – When she graduated from the University of Iowa two years ago with a major in elementary education, Amber Newman envisioned standing in front of a class of bright, energetic youngsters and providing them with the solid educational base that would help them become successful in the upper grades as well as later in life. But when Newman didn’t land a job in the classroom, she found another way of working with young people – she’s a nanny in Chicago to two boys, ages 1 and 4. Although it’s not her dream job, she’s glad to have a job in this struggling economy. Any job.
