But don't let me stop you, or the GOP, from thinking that is a winning strategy. It is my hope that they all continue thinking that they can win by defining themselves by what they oppose, instead of what they are for.
That is true, but the other candidates were even less suitable to win the election. And as far as the problems not haven been "forced" on americans then, the fact is that since those "problems" have been forced on them, opposition to ACA has *decreased*And one of our problems in 2012 was that we selected the guy least-suited to running against the ACA, whose problems hadn't even been forced upon the American people yet.
The elections will not be decided by what is going on in those places. I doubt those things will even be a small factor in most people's minds when they vote.Iraq and Syria are imploding, and Obama is getting ready for Afghanistan to implode. 2016 will feature a Democrat candidate completely incapable of distancing herself from Obama's foreign policy, having run most of it. It would be as if instead of McCain in 2008, Republicans had run Henry Paulson.
