    For some enlightenment, you should look at the years when Clinton was President and the Repubs held both the Senate and House.

    fyi Re: Hey Conservatives...Could Obama win your vote for 2012 if he...?

    If, by a miracle, Obama suddenly saw the light in upholding the Constitution, and publicy apologized for his wrongdoings, took serious steps to correct them, and practiced libertarian principles for at least a few months, then yes, I would support him and vote for him.

    But Obama's track record so far has been precisely the opposite of what it should be. He doesn't even practice libertarian principles that identify with liberals, such as ending the drug war. And he has not demonstrated one smidgen of learning the truth about simple economics.

    So don't get your hopes up. He has about the same odds of Adolf Hitler turning into Jesus Christ.

    If Obama truly became a conservative then yes (and by that I mean he really was conservative not just shifting more to the center/right to get elected and then going left again)
    I will vote for the more conservative candidate. If somehow Obama is more conservative than the Republican, I will vote for him, but that is very unlikely.

    Thanks for the reminder TOJ, believe me I live through that administration as well, non the less congress holds the power. BTW I would trade for Bubba over Obama any day. Obama makes the Clinton's look like our founding fathers.

    only adding ditto to those above. absolutely; however, the odds of that happening are about comparable to Andrew Sullivan nominating Sarah Palin for the Nobel Peace Prize. suffice to say I would be extremely suspicious if President Obama were to suddenly discover that he was pro life, pro securing the border, pro free market, and in favor of taking an aggressive tone against iran russia and china.

    The game is rigged. It’s all an illusion.
    Republican vs. Democrat is all a lie; all presidents are puppets.

    No. If you screw up in politics once, you're history.

    Only if he reversed every action he has taken.

    I believe it would be impossible.

    It would be like asking Satan to suddenly become Jesus Christ.

    Obama would have to do a complete 180 on his policies and denounce the political views of most of the people he grew up around, including family and friends.

    In other words, when Barack Obama is no longer Barack Obama, let me know and I'll vote for him.

    If not, what issue would he have to embrace in order to get your vote?
    Assuming I would believe him? He hasn't exactly been what you would call trustworthy.
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
