Well, you KNOW the GOP will lose when the best their favorite paid poster can say is "God, I sure hope so".

I've said ALL along - and I'll say it AGAIN: Obama will win EASILY - REALLY REALLY easily. History has shown that Presidents pretty much ALWAYS get re-elected when the economy is clearly in recovery mode (which it has been the case for the last year or more) - and it will be even MORE CLEARLY in recovery mode by election time - SO much so that even the GOP won't be able to deny it anymore. Besides, they can't very well take credit for improving anything after their win in 2010 if NOTHING IMPROVES and if things don't, they can't very well slough off all the blame when they have one hand on the purse strings through their control of half of Congress. They have "skin in the game" now. The economy HAS to continue to improve or they're going to have to share the blame.

Fortunately, this next election won't be about "who takes the blame" but rather about "who takes the credit" - and THAT is a situation that always results in a President being re-elected. Obama will EASILY win - no matter WHO makes gains in Congress for the simple reason that people don't like to change captains when things are on improving course.

It's too early if Barry will get another term-but if people like Matt Damon are pissed at him then maybe we have a chance for one term.

Even if the economy improves, the large number of workers who have had to do without a job for several years will be hard to defend. High gas prices would be just a bonus for the GOP. But the failure to nominate a credible candidate could do them in.

Obama can't carry water for Obama. We can't afford him for another term. Anyone is better than he is on the R side, although I am not happy with the choices that we have thus far. Some one will come along and take him out!

Hummmm. Recovery, huh. Just because you are being told that we are in a recovery, doesn't make it true. I go by what I see and how my life has improved (in my case not) and how others around me has changed. Which no one that I know that has lost their jobs in the past 2 years, all except for one person, ONE, everyone else is still unemployed.
Gas prices will be even higher. Things will get worse, not better with him in office. This guy is just clueless. People know that, and will not want him back.
People hated Bush so much that they were willing to elect in a person who was a nobody, who had no expirence, and still has no idea what a president is supposed to do. The R's don't need to have anyone who is a big rockstar in order to push this guy out. They just need someone with a pulse.

It doesn't take a genius to predict that the incumbent will win. Of course they have a much better chance of remaining in office than losing the election.
And usually it is not as much a reflection on them as it is on the system.

So of course Obama has better odds of remaining in office than anyone else does of winning the election.

But hopefully in the next year or so the voters will realize how ineffective Obama is in the office and opt for a better choice.

Now, burdell, you know that is a balanced ticket for the republicans. Something for everyone, from both divisions of the party.

You may need a little more concrete plan than "Hope To Change".
