    Re: Americans Think Obama Would Lose In 2012

    Whoever thinks this is jumping the gun. We have a long way to go and I just don't see anyone coming up on the Republcan side that I can get very passionate about right now. It is hard to unseat an incumbent unless things start totally falling apart. Yeah, they are falling apart but if things are percieved to be a little better than when he started or at least unchanged, people won't want to to mess with big changes like a new President.

    Of course these people are all racist.

    You guys elected a president with the same credentials as Justin Timberlake.

    I've hired data entry clerks with a thicker resume than Obama.

    I did not realize that Justin Timberlake was a constitutional scholar, a graduate of one of the top law schools in the country and a professor at one of the other top law schools. If you are hiring data clerks with that kind of resume, you are not a very good businessman.

    OTH, "you guys" take seriously a four time drop out of series of third tier schools that has never fulfilled the commitment of any elected job she has taken. That certainly says a whole lot about your standards of excellence... so why am I defending myself to the likes of you?

    If Obama stays on track my prediction that he will not get the Nomination at the Convention.

    But then so far the Dims (no spell Error) have been reluctant to wake up to Obama's failures which so far includes every damn thing he touches.

    What are all these "big failures" that people speak of? List them in alphabetical order please.

    Edit: On second thought, list them in order of importance.

    blah. whoever gets elected whatever party will still be carrying water for the same select few people. With that said very few potential republicans are inspiring enough to defeat Obama. Nominate someone like Palin and be sure to fail. I also don't like the chances of the 2 mormons and 1 baptist preacher that seem to be starting their campaigns. Hopefully we are at least smart enough to see through their phoniness.

    Yeah right. Failures. Like historic HC reform; saving GM; student loan reform; Credit CARD Act/financial reform; Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act - protection against pay discrimination; hate crime legislation. I'm sure Democrats will be running in droves from him.

    No...It says they don't think he can win. It doesn't say they wouldn't vote for him.

    Hugely different things.

    Of course, you'd understand that if you could read it. Nearly EVERYONE who voted for McCain didn't think he could win.

    Totally different things.
