    I'm sorry, are you arguing that "technically" the Democrat (and thus Obama) lost by ... adding together the votes of two candidates?

    So what does Obama have going for him? Specifically? Nothing positive. Just look at the economy. If you still want to blame bush so be it. Obama has done zero to get the economy going. Think the stimulus bill created any jobs? According to reports jobs numbers are no better. Obama should resign. He is the worst president by far in US history. And Omaba's jobs bill will create jobs for union workers only. Not to worry, that piece of legislation isn't even getting sponsored by any dem law makers. That is truly comical. Even his own party is seperating it's self from his rediculious ideas.

    Why does no one hold the republican congressmen for gutting every piece of progressive legislation that could have improved things, and only seeming to propose or support bills that would prevent people from getting healthcare and lowering taxes for their own class? Even when democrats had the majority, and tried to act like adults and be bi-partisan (what a stupid idea that was... foolish dems for not acting like spoiled children throwing a tantrum), republicans still did nothing but work to sabotage their efforts. "Discredit Obama, no matter the cost to the country," has been the mantra from day one. Why not hold these power hungry maniacs responsible for the consequences of their actions?

    Everything done by the Democrat and Republican power-players is all about getting the other guy -- either spinning what the other guy does into something it isn't (or at least wasn't meant to be), or achieving something while cock-blocking the other side so you can accuse them of sitting on their ass.

    1. He is well liked by the populace.
    2. He's the incumbent.
    3. He has no scandals
    4. He didn't create the economy we are in today.
    5. The GOP does have an answer how to fix the economy.
    6. He got bin Laden
    7. The GOP has two piss poor candidates in either Romney or Perry.

    That's all I can think of right now. Nothing is a sure thing, but it's looking pretty good for him right now.

    You do realize, of course, that all the Republicans would have to do in order to have a fighting chance would be to offer the nation a Palin/Bachmann ticket.

    Exactly. ....

    edit: The biggest problem the Republicans have today is the Tea Party who are so far out of the mainstream....

    Not really.

    They were doing things like throwing around the term "RINO" and voting out moderate Republicans long before the Tea Party movement began.

    Embracing ideological purity and playing "gotcha" in the face of real-world considerations is a problem every major political organization is having right now.

    There's a complete lack of historical perspective if I've ever seen one. Ever hear of Andrew Johnson or James Buchanan? Look 'em up. Obama's got a LONG way to go get even close to those two.

    So still seeking justification for your vote? Obama's current JAR and approval of handling of the economy makes that hard to find. Keep looking rather than admitting that you were wrong and Obama duped you. The People of NY 9 got it, when will you?
