Given the opposition to all progress by the GOP to defend the tax cuts for the rich and the crop of contenders as the alternative, I would bet that unless the economy gets worse, Obama wins.The bottom line: If the economy improves, it's likely to be Obama. If it doesn't Romney will probably be the next one getting the blame for the poor economy.
I agree. That's one of the reasons I'm glad for the OWS to bring some heat on issues neither party is highlighting. I think all citizens should join the OWS in protesting the support of the Patriot Act by both parties.But, back to the subject of this thread: I don't want to see either of them with the power to detain Americans without trial.
And, even less do I want to see whoever succeeds them as next POTUS with that power. Who knows who that might be?
Or, it could be Perry with that power... now that's a scary thought, isn't it?
