    So let's say the unthinkable happens and Obama wins re-election (G-d forbid). He is sworn in in January 2013 (Heaven forbid) and serves another 4 years (L-rd save us). Now what?
    The Congress will go over to the GOP, having the lowest ratings in years. What will Obama do for 4 years? He is the most compromised president in history. He doesn't have a shred of credibility with the GOP, having demonized them for over 4 years. He has proven he cannot work with them. He has proven he ignores all advice contrary to his own ideas (see, Simpson-Bowles). He is unable to get a single piece of legislation through Congress. And his regulatory moves are blocked by Congressional action.
    Is that really the formula for success? Gridlock?
    No, Obama is unable to govern. The Dems need to choose someone else as a sacrificial lamb.

    Well? What will you do? Complain and shout hyperbolic things for another four years?

    No longer burdened with the responsibility of winning another election I believe he'll do whatever it is he wants. By executive order if necessary.

    4 years of a lame duck? His veto pen will be busy and you'll see Dems crossing the aisle to override when something really needs to get done.

    Step two of socializing medicine. He won't need the health insurance companies to fund his next election so he can pull the rug out from under their feet and really screw Americans. He said it would take 15 - 20 years. This would get them halfway home.

    And bullets, cigaretts, and alcohol.

    Right now BUD, STZ, and BEAM are all great buys.

    You have to take the Senate. Screw Obama. If you have the House and the Senate the Bam Bam is toast.
    It doesn't matter if he takes the Presidency.

    The win is the Senate. That's what I'm signing up for. Let's remove O's power.
