Obama Brings Back David Plouffe In An Effort To Hold On To Congressional Majority


Obama brings back David Plouffe in an effort to hold on to congressional majorityAfter one of his most trying weeks in office President Obama decided to re-hire his 2008 presidential campaign manager David Plouffe in an effort to retain as many Democratic congressional seats as possible in the upcoming elections.

Although many have speculated that the decision to bring Plouffe back was made in response to the Democrats’ stunning loss in the recent special Senate election in Massachusetts, Obama’s chief strategist David Axelrod said on Sunday that the move had been planned for some time.

During his first day on the job, Plouffe delivered a defiant message, signaling an aggressive change in tone for the current administration and the Democratic Party as a whole.

"Instead of fearing what may happen, let’s prove that we have more than just the brains to govern—that we have the guts to govern," Plouffe wrote in an op-ed article for The Washington Post.

"Let’s fight like hell, not because we want to preserve our status, but because we sincerely believe too many everyday Americans will continue to lose if Republicans and special interests win," he added.
