Yes, in the biggest political surprise of the year…President Obama has announced that he is running for a second term as U.S. president!  Man, I didn’t see that comin’!

The President’s campaign announced today in a web video posted on his campaign website, and in an e-mail to supporters, that he will run again in 2012.  The White House officials said over the weekend that his campaign would file papers this week with the Federal Election Commission to launch his 2012 re-election effort.

-  The President would’ve announced his intention to run again last week, but he decided to wait until he found his birth certificate.

-  The President immediately announced that his 2012 re-election campaign would officially be called:  “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not An Option” Campaign.  -  And oh yeah, President Obama also said he most definitely plans on “WINNING!”
