Except........take out "obama" and replace with "Carter". This and MORE was said in 1980.

The same angst about a protracted, nasty primary. The same meme about a third party candidate. The same this one or that one is "unelectable". The same late entry "savior". The same fear mongering about those extremist religious republicans.

Basically the polls are tied but back then Carter was up 58%-40% against Reagan...same point in time.

Today's narrative holds that however weak President Obama's hand, Republicans find themselves in no position to capitalize on it.

The president whose failings they describe is Jimmy Carter, not Barack Obama. The lines were written in 1980, not 2012.
The story? "Jimmy Carter's Luck".

Whose narrative is this? The elite obama water carriers in the MSM, the chattering belt way pseudo conservatives.

History repeating itself.

A $16 TRILLION debt, $5+ TRILLION in just 3 1/2 shorts years under obama.

Massive deficits 4 years running.

Gas prices double, perhaps even triple from when he took office.

MILLIONS dropped off the rolls of the UE for lack of jobs.

The nightmare of obama.

All of the above in the article is TRUE.

And let me tell ya, this is a hell of a nightmare, with Obama. My gosh lately thank goodness, democratic friends of mine, will not be giving Obama their vote this time around, because they grew up.
They will not fall for the lies this time, nor the promise, of a no promise.
Or garbage in and garbage out, of some made up HOPE 'N CHANGE FARCE.
His massive deficts, his spending, please, and just where is Obama different~ Oh wait, he is a very good actor, when he needs to be.
Gas prices i heard tonight are suppose to go up by summer over $6 to 7 a gallon.

You also live here in California, i read something distrubing tonight. That the housing market here in California, as well as other States, have not seen anything yet. We have so many foreclosed properties on the market, that have not even made a dent in anything.

Problem is the banks on sitting on so many new ones, if they release these, what happens with the ones not selling. Home values are suppose to continue to decline in 2012 some areas will be hit harder then others.

I read that in order to get this economy moving, we have got to get rid of these foreclosures, shortsales, and repos.
And the article also said, due in part to the many who have lost a job, they lost a home.
