    Krauthammer makes the very easy case why Obama will get beat.

    In short... Obama is a one-off freak.

    The Dems have played their last card... what do they have left? What will they do next? Run a real clown?

    The real kool-aid drinkers are those who think they can accurately predict what the political climate will be like in 3 years.

    Interesting......given how the 2004 election wasn't about massive incompetence and dithering despite much of that going on in 2002. Short term memory you seem to have.

    And it's the economy, stupid.

    Cap, Tax and spend.
    The attempt at Socialist Care.
    Government Motors.
    Trillions wasted.
    Tax increases.
    Better then borrow, borrow, borrow spend.
    Did you read the 1,000+ page bill or are you just assuming it's socialist because it's easier for you to think that rather then actually learn about the subject? Where have we seen this before? Oh yes. Your tiny understanding of the tax code in the US but big talk.
    I'll give you government motors, but materially, it's tiny.
    Trillions waste? What makes you say that?
    Tax increases are coming no matter who is in charge. Unless you think that we can pay off $50+ trillion in obligations without tax increases...

    Yes... he's an economic genius.
    If you bothered to check out his policies, many of them are similar, if not identical to Bush.

    Huh. Imagine that. You could be honest and consistent and treat them the same. I could also ask for a pony.

    Both of you are fools.

    The next election will largely be determined by the economy at that time as virtually all presidential elections are. No one can reasonably judge what next year will be much less 2012. To declare that Obama will lose/win with that basic piece of knowledge is pretty insane if not exceedingly arrogant.

    I agree. I've been through enough of these administrations to know there are too many variables in politics to know with any amount of certainty how voters are going to react to unknown future current events.

    LOL...

    Yes... he's an economic genius.

    Next time round, this guy will have to defend his actions. If we have a decent candidate, someone who will drag the press to the s**t pile Obama has made, and put their noses in it like a puppy... so they ask a few questions on par with Joe the Plumber... Obama will get his ass kicked.

    By then the race card BS may have worn irritatingly thin. As you know... he and his chumps like to play it.

    .
    Thats the problem....your party is void of good candidates. The only decent candidate you have is Romney...and good luck getting the right-wing fanatics to vote for a Mormon.

    Bottom line - barring any international disaster, the next race will be 100% dependent on the economy. If the economy rebounds (which it looks like it will)....the race won't even be close.

    What did I say?

    The next election will largely be determine by the economy. If the economy is going well, Obama is likely to win. If it isn't he will be voted out.

    Bob the squirrel's got the best shot so far.
    Problem is, Obama is not screwing up, it's only rightwing propaganda and wishful thinking that insists he is. He's letting Congress decide on health care, he's repairing America's reputation overseas, and he's taken responsibility for two wars, which Bush never did. As long as Republicans live in Dreamland and take their orders from Rush and Glenn Beck, we may never have another Republican president. The country just wouldn't trust him.

    Clearly, if Obama actually starts to do something - the eventuality of his exit could be changed. Thank you Captain Obvious for pointing out no one can accurately predict the future. I'll stand by my arrogance - it's got some historical context you see and history has a way of repeating itself.

    It would be foolish to assume that Obama does not have his hands in the debate over health care reform. He just needed the perception that he was far less involved and invested in it as Bill Clinton was.

    He may or may not be repairing the reputation of the United States. Diplomacy is useful, but only useful if it works. There is still considerable obstacles the United States faces diplomatically that may never be faced simply by virtue of the United States' power, irregardless of whether or not it is aware or even uses its weight. Furthermore, repairing reputation is not the same thing as accomplishing Obama's view of the American interest. An example would be with securing the cooperation of Russia and China with any sanctions it imposes upon Iran, which is at the moment, contrary to Russia's economic and spherical agenda. The Russians have not, thus far, given the United States much if any satisfaction in the knowledge that it could depend upon them to secure their aims.

    Bush has taken a great deal of responsibility for the two wars. In fact, he had made several indicative statements that his actions would be judged by posterity for generations to come, and he staked his reputation on his calls.

    The Republican Party does not take its orders from Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh so much as it continually searches the body politic for a rising demand in certain policy measures. Republicans will come to power again for the foreseeable future. What they need to do as of yet is build a coherent policy platform and become perceived as the party with ideas.
