    Re: Will Obama get a second term?

    You know, I thought for certain that Bush wouldn't have been elected to a second term. I'd say the same thing about Obama, but I've learned my lesson.

    We will see.

    Who knows why you used a chart that only went up to 5 months ago, but the unemployment rate has come down another point since then.

    Currently, the unemployment rate is up 13% on Obama's watch. While that's not good, it's better than every Republican president since Hoover after their first 26 months in office:

    Nixon ............ +77%
    Eisenhower ... +59%
    Bush ............. +40%
    Ford .............. +40%
    Reagan ......... +37%
    GHW Bush ..... +26%
    Obama .......... +13%
    Kennedy ........ -14%
    Carter ............ -23%
    Clinton ........... -26%
    Johnson ......... -30%

    We will see.
    Kerry wasn't a really hot candidate. It can't be stated how important that was to Bush's chances of reelection. Same situation here.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    If President Obama puts troops into Libya, I predict defeat...depending on how the Republican Congress reacts.

    Third parties have never had success. The most successful option they have is to change the debate. Most Americans continue to believe in the notion that third parties are a wasted vote. I would not blame this on Fox or the rest of the media.

    Re: Will Obama get a second term?

    based on the fact that most US presidents do, and the fact the present crop of Republican contenders make Obama look really good.. then yes he will get a second term.

    Now the sad thing about this is the fact that the US only has a choice between a relatively unpopular president vs a bunch of wackos with so many skeletons in the closet that it would make the Adams Family feel at home. It is a choice of .. better the devil you know than the devil you dont know.

    Re: Will Obama get a second term?

    I think Daniels is the only threat to Obama, and (1) I'm not sure he will even run, (2) he will probably be cannibalized by his own party in the primaries. Christie would also be a threat, but he's definitely not running.

    I really don't think any of the other candidates have any chance whatsoever. It will probably end up being fairly close, of course, but I can't imagine any of them actually becoming President. Nor do I think any of them would be any better at it than Obama. I see no indicated any of them know what they are doing or have any idea how to fix this county's many problems.

    If you got Obama and Obama light then how can you change the debate if both of the major candidates are practically the same thing?

    Most Americans do not pay attention to politics and when they vote its all name familiarity.

    I do. They are part of the reason why we basically have a two party monopoly when it comes to presidential elections.
