Even though his actions probably had little to nothing to do with the economic cycles, he'll be able to point out how bad things were in 2008/9 and how much better they are in 2012. "Don't fix something that ain't broke." He'll say, and all the sheeple will listen to him and ignore the screaming of the lunatic fringe of the GOP and the intelligent but hopeless pontificating of 3rd parties.

The GOP can field a centrist Obama clone in skirt, white, or alternate color and run a good loser's race and fade into obscurity, or they can offer up a sacrificial wingnut for the incumbent to slaughter and keep their reasonable candidates safely stabled until 2016.

Best two post here IMO. If he gets relected, this is why.

However, if the unemployment rate is better than when he started and golds at $4000 an oz I can't see him getting relected...

All he has to do is follow Vietnam's example and pass a law prohibiting gold from being sold.

Then they looked at me and said...................Ready for this???? I am nothing more than a racist. I guess we are not permitted to look out after our own first.

I guess I went a bit off topic, but am still steamed about that.

Okay back to the poll.....Unless Obama pulls a rabit out of his rear end, he is clearly a 1 termer.

That is not for them to be asking. Donating should be strictly a volunteer thing. One should not be pressured to give reasons. Many business and gov't frown on people doing any kind of fundraising.

Scott Brown could run in an election tomorrow against Obama and win by a landslide.
Most likely.

Default Dnf

Need more poll choices.
Suspect he will be impeached at some point or simply asked to leave by the American people due to incompetence and rejection of his off the wall agenda of change. He comes across as a bad E-bay seller who misrepresents his product. He or rather the fixed agenda handed to him is not acceptable.

Something about PO portrays him as a disinterested player whose only perceived talent is speaking empty words on que. He seems more of a figurehead than a leader or visionary. All the work is left to his unsavory minions, whose only job requirement is membership in a tight circle of a socio-political agenda driven cascade of related organizations. Everytime a beam of light hits one of the creepy crawlies they have to leave their post.

Figure he will be DNF as in 'did not finish' but then again Bill survived impeachment and disbarment so maybe PO will finish one term. The longer he stays the less esteem he will earn in history.
