    Dick Morris has as much credibility as Charlie Sheen shouting, "I am sober!" Morris is a dick, all right, a real one. It's wishful thinking on his part... and mine, too, I'll confess... but there's no way the democrats will push a sitting president out of seeking another term so that, say, someone qualified... like Hillary... could run. Too bad that isn't going to happen.

    I knew I wouldn't vote for Bush-lite and Bubblebrain in 2008, so I was counting on the democrats to give me a good, solid candidate. They gave me a totally unqualified, charismatic, speech-making professional campaigner. A pox on them, dammit. So I wrote in my vote rather than give it to any of the fools on the ballot.

    I may end up doing the same in 2012, unless the republican candidate impresses hell out of me. Time will tell.

    I agree Obama does face a challenge this coming election, but I'd rather vote for him again than a Christian Fundamentalist Tea Party mouthpiece. I'd consider Ron Paul or Romney, but if Bachmann or Perry get the nomination, I'm voting Obama again.

    Obama doesn't write his own speeches, nor does he memorize them.

    What a Hobsen's choice we have this time around.
    Obama get's out, Hillary steps in.

    Re: Obama May Pull Out

    I think all this talk was orignally started by the Clinton camp to put Mrs. Clinton back into Presidential discussion.

    However, I would say that thinking about stepping down would be more-or-less consistent with President Obama's decision making style. Committed or not? Government stimulus or business? Pro-war or anti-war? Gray hair or dark? Socialist or moderate? Admirer of Reverend Wright or unfortunate observer? Lead or follow? Present a plan or just talk about it? Budget or none?

    Like President Carter, President Obama appears to have a doomed Presidential legacy but will likely serve as an excellent ambassador. If he would have had a Republican House and Republican Senate from day 1, he probably would have more popular than President Clinton.

    or maybe Romney gets the nod, the tea party thinks he's too "liberal" and runs with Palin, Obama wins due to the split vote, and woo hoo! four more years of the same thing.

    At least we have the Constitution to limit the powers of the president.

    We also have a disfunctional Congress to help with the downward spiral.

    Eh, if Bush and Clinton could win a second term I don't see why Obama couldn't. Obama's approval rating this month is very close to Clinton's in September of 95.

    When his teleprompter goes out, people who cannot argue against his policies substantively go ape**** cuz they have something their minds can actually handle to criticize him for.

    I think this says more about what the political system has become than it does about Obama in particular. Can you imagine how Bush would have handled that situation? I'm sure I could find a video somewhere. Clinton might have been able to pull it off but probably not H.W. Bush.

    Politics has become a business rather than a public service.
