Fisking Obama's Claim His 2012 Re-Election Chances Are Better Than 2008

ABC News is reporting President Obama believes his re-election chances in 2012 are better than they were in 2008. My comments are in blue.
(ABC News) — At a campaign fundraiser Thursday night in Washington, D.C. on President Obama said he believes his chances of being reelected in 2012 are “much higher” than they were in 2008.
Has President Obama seen the latest poll?
“Over the last couple of months there have been Democrats who voiced concerns and nervousness about, well, in this kind of economy, isn’t this just — aren’t these just huge headwinds in terms of your reelection?” Obama said.
No American president since FDR has been re-elected when the unemployment rate on Election Day topped 7.2 percent.
“And I just have to remind people that, here’s one thing I know for certain: the odds of me being reelected are much higher than the odds of me being elected in the first place.”
The mainstream media completely failed to vet Barack Obama in 2008. The curtian has been pulled back now and the wizard is exposed.
Obama made the remarks before a gathering of 50 donors to his reelection campaign and the Democratic National Committee who each paid $35,800 to attend.
The event was held at the Georgetown home of former U.S. ambassador to Portugal Elizabeth Frawley Bagley.
Hanging out with a bunch of Georgetown socialites can't help Obama's elitist image.
“We remain very confident about our ability to win a contest of ideas in 2012,” Obama said, “as long as we can get the message out.”

Is he that deluded and disconnected? Or, has he made such a habit of dissembling and putting the spin on things that he can't help himself? I can see him as the captain of the Titanic after the ship has sunk, in a lifeboat claiming that the ship is unsinkable.
