    Re: Do you think Obama will be reelected in 2012

    This sums up the situation very well ~

    Where are the Republicans who can beat Obama in 2012?

    "With a cast of has-beens, nobodies and deadbeats to choose from, no wonder many Republicans are depressed about 2012.

    GOP presidential contest begins to warm up," the Los Angeles Times declared. That was on 7 March. In the weeks since then, can you feel the excitement? No, me neither.

    In fact the most dramatic thing to happen during the nomination contest to date is Barack Obama's announcement that he's running for re-election. And he faces no primary opposition.

    Compared with the same stage in 2007, when the presidential primary season was running at full steam, 2011 is a flat tire. But it's not just the lack of activity – the Republican candidates being touted are a collection of has-beens, nobodies and deadbeats, several of them barely household names in their own households. And those are the most electable ones.

    Which is strange because the Republican party has just enjoyed an election triumph in the 2010 midterm elections that would suggest a party surging towards the 2012 contest. Instead, it's more like the Simpsons parody of the football world cup finals: "This match will determine once and for all which nation is the greatest on earth – Mexico or Portugal!"

    So far, the 2012 primaries will determine once and for all who is the greatest Republican presidential candidate: Tim Pawlenty or Mitch Daniels?

    Mitch who? Exactly. This Republican crop of candidates is a veritable "Who's that?" of American politics.

    Despite all that, talking to intelligent Republicans finds them brimming with enthusiasm for their party's candidates. It's a fantastic field, they insist – for 2016. Yes, they are very excited about the 2016 presidential elections, and reel off a list of top-notch candidates: Marco Rubio, Rick Perry, Scott Walker, David Petraeus, Chris Christie, even Jeb Bush."

    Scott Walker

    Dude's on track to become one of the nation's most unpopular governors if he isn't already

    Nice that he found "intelligent Republicans" to talk to. From the same writer, more recently:

    Rick Perry will enter the Republican presidential contest and he will win the party's nomination. A bold prediction? Not really, not when you consider the noises coming out of Texas and the ungainly sight of the other candidates.

    When he does, Democrats will probably make the mistake of thinking that hanging a "George W Bush 2" label around the Texas governor's neck will sink him. Maybe it won't help Perry win the presidency in 2012 but it's hardly a bar to winning the Republican nomination.

    A male Michelle Bachmann to run against Obama? I'm game! One radical religious GOP candidate works as well as any other for me.

    So Obama is neither radical nor religious in your view?

    I hope Perry does enter, but I would really prefer Michele. (And do note the single L, please. I mean if you're gonna fixate on her, the gentlemanly thing would be to learn to spell her name correctly.)

    That same writer, I think, noted that Perry might displace Michele as Romney's closest rival. I'm not sure that Perry wouldn't replace Romney as Michele's rival.

    Not even in the least, I was disappointed we didn't have liberal candidate to run against McCain. If we would have elected a liberal, we wouldn't still have troops in Afghanistan and Iraq and we wouldn't still have the Bush tax cuts still in place.

    I hope Perry does enter, but I would really prefer Michele.
    Perry or Bachmann, makes no difference to me. Both of these religious zealots will turn off the independents who decide the elections.

    Then you won't have a liberal in '12 either.

    If BO isn't liberal enough for you, may I ask who is? Whom would you appoint POTUS, if you could?

    Rick Perry is considered a serious candidate by Republicans???

    Man, they really are pathetic if he's a possibility.

    Sorry. I've been gone a while. Is everything still George Bush's fault?
