    Actually, the Reublican candidate will have to die, the week before the election. I think Obama's chances would be slim as hell, even then.

    Let's face it...what does he have to run on? More of the same? I think you know that's not going to work.

    Why apparently he is running ona whole slew of seasonal minimum wage retail jobs that happen every year and typically last about 2 months.Thats building your house on some serious quicksand right there...but hey...all he has to do is throw out that little Jedi mind trick to the mouthbreathers and they swallow it every time.

    Ive said it before...I dont think there is any way he doesnt win reelection. He has the 47% ers...the crippled and dependent pets addicted to the handouts in his pocket. He has all the mindless OWS types...the rebels without a clue. And if he needs to he will pass and EO for amnesty granting voter rights to illegal immigrants just before the election. This is truly in the bag.

    And lets be honest...the GOP isnt exactly fielding a viable alternative...

    I think Romney would make an excellent President and leave poor Obama in his dust during any debates.

    Once BHO is away from his teleprompter hes toast.

    Romney certainly has an impressive bio.

    The problem for the Republicans is that they cannot talk down to people as easily as the Democrats. The Democrat leaders feel their followers are not that bright, with some justification, whereas Republicans assume the electorate knows something about economics, etc.

    This puts them at a disadvantage in relating to a great many people. Unless there is a villain in the piece (racists, the rich, etc.) the Dem supporters don't get it.

    Yes, but the question is how many of those 1.7 million no longer in the labor force are baby boomers retiring?

    Over 400,000 per week are applying for first time unemployment claims meaning that the jobs just aren't there so the claim about baby boomers retiring are just another diversion from reality. We have a growing population and yet a declining labor force. How do you reconcile the two?

    We are still averaging a net 125k increase in the available labor force every month. That's why we don't have real expansion until we add 300k jobs a month.
