    Well people are already being polled and they still prefer Obama to anybody the GOP is putting up against him.

    Yes, and they might just hold their collective noses and vote for the likes of Gingrich or Perry, and then, what will change?

    Do you seriously believe that changing the president is going to result in an economic turn around? How much power do you ascribe to the office of president, anyway?

    so yes, this country is better off today than it was when Obama took over.

    You think that the 24 million unemployed care about the GDP? They care about jobs and the ability to keep their homes by having a job.

    Yep, and FDR was reelected three times despite the fact that the economy was in the toilet. Why? Because then, as now, people realize that performance has to be evaluated in the context of the massive headwinds blowing against progress.

    GDP is back in the positive. the stock market has regained ALL of its losses. companies are hiring and matching 401k contributions again.

    clearly, we are on our way.

    Obama is no FDR. The American people vote their wallets and with Obama they have less in that wallet

    Naturally. That's why they will choose the guy who is making the situation better, rather than a guy who will resurrect the failed polcies that created this cluster****.

    In this analogy Obama IS FDR and Newt Romney is Herbert Hoover.
