    what is working against Obama is his record, his lack of competence and the fact that the main reason people voted for him is generally not sustainable.
    Mitt Romney is the best that Republicans can do: they won't talk about his religion, they won't talk about his finances, they won't talk about his business practices and they won't talk about his record . . . The only people voting for Romney in my view, will be those voting out of spite: the rest will stay home.

    given your usual rate of accuracy, its good to see such a claim. Obama is a failure-anyone who understands that and isn't a hard core social fascist will vote for Romney. we have a few extreme right sore losers here who want Obama to win because their fascist candidate lost but so what

    Oblama's election was a prime proof of that. His win over HIllary confirmed it as well

    Americans were dumb enough to re-elect GWB.

    If they re-elect Obama, it will prove they have gotten even dumber politically.


    I don't overly fault Americans for originally voting for either the first time - both had relatively little experience on the national stage and ended up making tons of promises (many they did not keep).

    But to re-elect such complete and utterly useless POTUS's as GWB and Obama have been...now that clearly shows a distinct lack of political intelligence (imo).

    Kerry was a complete idiot-his only argument he was smarter than Bush and that was proven to be a lie

    What's going to happen is exactly what happened in California respecting Meg Wittman. She spent $110,000,000 of her own money combined with the raise campaign money against Jerry Brown's money. He said in an interview, "I got twenty million in the bank". And then Meg Wittman got her head handed to her!

    No, people are much smarter than some think. 2008 was the referendum on Republicans. 2010 was warning shot across the bow of the Democrats. What voters really did however, was give the GOP a chance to show everyone what they're really all about, and we've found out that they're all about obstructionism and they have nothing to offer this country in the way of any benefit whatsoever.

    So, yes, Obama will win. How big he will win will be the telling for 2016.

    Could you link to the verifiable evidence which shows this was "A LIE"?

    8% is the new normal.....at least until those in unions accept much lower wages.

    I don't care if the Dems put up a hampster as a candidate....literally ANYTHING would have been better then the horrific job that GWB did in his first term.

    After the successful overthrow of the Taliban in Afghanistan (he was not too terrible before that, imo)...Bush made one horrific mistake after another.

    Invading Iraq, Gitmo, Patriot Act, his juvenile, low-income housing fantasy and on and on....just in the first term.


    Now Obama, with his lying (closing Gitmo, halving the deficit in his first term, etc.), Obamacare and his totally useless handling of the economy...this guy is giving GWB a run for his money on Presidential patheticness.
