History says you are wrong. The last two times that the same party won the White House three consecutive times was 1988 and 1940.

Starting with 1988, 39 states plus DC have voted the same way every time. That will not change going forward short-term, as neither party has done anything to widen their appeal.

That leaves the GOP no wiggle room, meaning they would need very close to a clean sweep of all swing states just to eek out 270. Herculean task.

I agree. History should tell you that a republican should win the next election....but.... The problem is that they have to pander to conservatives to get the nom and then they have be moderate to get the independents to vote for them. No one likes a wishy washy candidate.

Obama focused on everything but our concerns. I could care less about his so called enemy number 1, global warming. People pull out numbers to try to prop Obama up but everything about Obama is a prop. Hope & Change, yea sure when his friends are the bankers. When he demonizes the productive to pander to the non-productive (the needy people who depend on government to take from people to give to them), in other words, their vote and support are bought.

Obama is the worst president in my time. "period"

Do you mean like Bill Clinton had to pander to his liberal base to get the Dem nomination and then pretend to be a "centrist" to get elected in 1992?

So, I guess you slept through both Bush administrations? And have no recollection of Herbert Hoover, Andrew Johnson, and other train-wreck presidents? Not a fan of history, I take it.
