2012 in the air as Obama heads to New Hampshire

(CNN) - When presidential candidates head to New Hampshire the November before an election year, it's a pretty safe bet the upcoming campaign is on their minds.

But that's not the case with President Obama, who travels to Manchester later Tuesday, White House spokesman Jay Carney insists. In fact, Carney maintained the quick trip north has nothing to do with 2012 at all. Rather, the visit is merely a continuation of the series of stops the president has made across the country since September to sell his jobs bill.

    Conservatives really hate the fact that Pres. Obama is going around the country talking about legislation before Congress. They like to accuse to accuse him of campaigning on taxpayer expense, which may actully be true. But, as long as he is talking about current legislation, then it can be successfully argued that he is not campaigning for office. Technically, he is showing leadership by doing his job. As much as they complain about a lack of leadership, they should ought to be happy.

    “I can predict with all confidence that the President will win the New Hampshire primary in the Democratic Party,” Carney jabbed.

    And the Republicans could not be more pleased. Certainly the Democrats can find someone they actually think that could win. They are giving up that easy?

    Apparently with Gingrich now in the lead the Republicans are having serious problems finding anybody who might beat Obama.
