1. People were saying that about Clinton in '94. I realize that Clinton was willing to sell out his own party and move to the center in order to stay in power and Obama probably isn't. Still, it's a long time and anything can happen such as the economy getting better just before the election.
2. Let's see who Republicans nominate. I never underestimate my party's ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
1. certainly a lot can happen in 12 months. That's an eternity in politics. But the economic indicators suggest we are headed for a double dip recession, as Obama continues to mismanage the economy and sink us deeper in debt. The man has no friggin clue. He continues to offer the same old "shovel-ready jobs" and "let's tax someone else" crap he did 2 years ago, like we could forget that the jobs "were not as shovel-ready as we thought."
I loved this one, "I didn't promise hope and change tomorrow or hope and change this year." Of course, that is exactly what he did. "This is the moment when people will say the seas stopped rising . . ." (from Obama's inauguration address). The man is incapable of keeping his word or of acknowledging an error.
2. The Republicans made tehir share of werrors in nominating candidates last time around, but I hope--and believe--the party is focused solely on electibility as we run up to 2012. Beating Obama is the most important factor. We know Obama will not run on his record because his record sucks big time, so all he has is demonizing the Republican nominee. His minion in the press have already been doing that. Bachmann got the full palin treatment, Perry is taking his lumps now. Whoever is the Republican frontrunner is demonized by the liberal media. This is going to be an ugly, ugly Democratic campaign.
