I firmly believe that the Obama presidency will fail. I mean look at his policies raising the Capital gains tax at a time when the World desperately needs capital, passing this health care travesty, pushing a Cap and Trade bill that put the 11.6 million manufacturing jobs we still have in danger, A stimulus bill the was a giant social welfare bill. I didn't like George Bush he was inept, sadly it looks like Obama will give him a run for his money. I didn't even vote for Mccain either.

Hate to be pedantic, but a Presidency cannot fail. He is either the President for his term of office or he isn't. Some or all of his policies can be failed to be enacted, they can fail to achieve the goals that they are designed to achieve, but a Presidency cannot fail.

I believe that the American economy will be better off in 2012 than it was in the 2008 campaign. A Republican presidency in Jan 2013 isn't a shoo-in.

Obama can win reelection but it will be because the GOP nominee was worse. None of them are exactly inspiring I mean Palin, Romney, Huckabee, Haley Barbour and so on? We need a president like Reagan, Ike or even JFK.

Obama reminds me of Carter we elected him because we hated Nixon. We elected Obama because he hated Bush. I'm not so sure the economy will be better we could have serious bout of inflation. The FED has printed money like crazy to bailout Wall Street. Can we sell 1 trillion dollars of debt for three more years without major problems?
