    He promised to win the wars and to balance the budget. A deficit isn't a Bush hallmark, nor are low tax rates... Reagan, Clinton, etc. all deficits and cut taxes somewhere.

    It more likely that it is where Romney has "flopped" to that will be his downfall. He is radically right of the mainstream at the moment. Obama will not let him weasel his way out of it either.
    That and all the fired/laid off employees from his days at Bain. The flood is just beginning.

    Re: For Obama voters only!

    Both Romney and Obama suck, so there really isnt going to be the overwhelming support that Romney needs to oust the incumbent. And IMO it looks like Romney isnt going to fair well during the heaviest part of the fight. Personally I think that we should only allow one term for presidents. Then at least there would be a slight chance that the Dems would have came up with some better.

    But I meant more to the tune of how foreign policy is perceived - if Iran successfully comes out with a nuke prior to Election Day, the parallels with Jimmy Carter are going to be hard to tamp down.
    Is that what you dream about at night? That Obama will lose because he didn't got to war with Iran? That's a riot but you are right about one thing, it will take that or an alien invasion for Romney to have even a chance. Nite nite.

    Incumbents have won close to 2/3 of the time. This is even more common in the last century. I have little doubt that Obama will win. I have even less doubt that we will be better off for it.

    Well, an ad saying we had turned the corner would probably be pretty clearly false. Saying things are improving as opposed to getting worse, that would be accurate. Can you link to what you have heard on ad polling?

    And you think that people will buy that? You think Europe will last through the summer?
    Things are improving. That is factual. I am not going to make any prediction about Europe, neither you nor I know nor can predict accurately what will happen there.

    I base mine in part on betting odds which have Obama at 59.1 % to win re-election. Also looking at electoral maps. It is too far out right now to make good predictions however.

    But we ARE doing better than Europe, where Right wing policies have failed miserably.
