    If Obama for whatever mythical reason had to face Romney again today, he'd likely lose. If he had to face, say, Ted Cruz, he'd win.

    In a literal sense, "...it depends on the opponent" is the correct answer, as all things are relative. But, this question is intended to explore the man's stature in the political world in general, and how it has fallen and/or survived.
    To run he would have had to overcome some rather strict laws. If he achieves that in the time left, he will win.

    Well at least the Republicans are smart enough not to get caught mouthing off about how stupid the electorate is.

    I don't get why people still fall for that. Actions speak louder than words, and the Republicans haven't done anything "small government", "freedomy", or even fiscally conservative, in at least over two decades.

    Because people have hope that this time the Republicans will change.

    That's actually exactly what happened when Rand Paul got caught on hot mic. He's nothing like his father, whom I respect dearly. The apple fell far from the tree on that one.

    Both Pauls are dumbasses. They are well educated doctors that love to think that because they have degrees. They know better than everyone else.

    Re: If President Obama were running for re-election today, could he win?

    Personally, I think it says far more about the Democrat bench than it does about the Republican bench that so many on the left think that if Obama ran again he'd win. It's the same people who lamented that Bill Clinton couldn't run again as the Democrats paraded out two of the worst Presidential candidates ever in Al Gore and John Kerry.

    This says to me that the Democrats high-profile standard barer in 2016, Hillary Clinton, is in the same class as Gore and Kerry.

    But really, it's one thing to want to revisit the good economic times and the salacious gossipy times under Bill Clinton, but I can't for the life of me think of a single positive attribute that Obama has brought to the office that any sane person would want to see continue.

    A second term? Potentially.

    If today were a third term and he was constitutionally allowed to do so? No.
