    Not much will change my vote, mainly because of cap and trade and immigration, but the Republicans shouldn't get too confident. Things can change.

    Things can change a lot in 2 years. Imagine this:
    (1) Economy rebounds and unemployment goes under 5%
    (2) Iran signs a deal and becomes nuke free
    (3) The electric car takes off and oil prices decrease
    (4) I and P sign a peace agreement and peace is achieved
    (5) Troops pull out of Iraq (he will get credit and applause)
    (6) OBL is captured
    (7) No amnesty bill is signed or presented
    (8) There is hope in afghanistan
    (9) No bad effects of the healthcare bill are seen (yet!)!
    (10) The deficit goes down (that would take a lot)

    Imagine if all these things are even a few combined with #1 (heck even #1) happens, then Obama is assured a victory!

    With all the Spending and Inflation, I doubt it...

    That's silly, Iran isn't gonna sign no deal, they are out to be like N.Korea, a lot of Threats but nothing to back it up since they know they'd get shit on by NATO.


    How does that make Republicans less likely to win in '12?

    Electric cars are a nice idea and all, but i prefer a car with some Testosterone, not a pansy electric car.

    I &P?


    At first maybe, but without our Troops there until we know Iraq has a reliable Police Force and Army It would go back to hell..

    That would be great honestly.. Don't care who catches him, the people being credited for that should be the Military, CIA and the Folks who Captured him..


    Good.

    Even better. With the Surge Obama promised I have hope about Afghanistan.

    Too early to say, sure I agreed on a couple things on it, so I really could care less..

    look at #1

    That's Debatable.. But yes it would look on his Record.

    Things can change a lot in 2 years. Imagine this:
    (1) Economy rebounds and unemployment goes under 5% Economy will rebound but unemployment will not be close to 5%
    (2) Iran signs a deal and becomes nuke free Could happen, also the internal strife could stabilize
    (3) The electric car takes off and oil prices decrease We would not see the impact for 10 years
    (4) I and P sign a peace agreement and peace is achieved Could very well happen
    (5) Troops pull out of Iraq (he will get credit and applause) Will happen
    (6) OBL is captured More likely killed or disappears
    (7) No amnesty bill is signed or presented There will be no amnesty
    (8) There is hope in afghanistan One way or the other, we will be getting out by 2012
    (9) No bad effects of the healthcare bill are seen (yet!)! There will be no negatives in 2012, it will be tweaked over the next 5 years
    (10) The deficit goes down (that would take a lot) Not a chance

    (11) Cuba and N Korea could be diplomatic breakthroughs

    Great Post! All I am saying is conservatives (who I usually vote for) shouldn't get to comfortable and lose sight on the important things.

    I'm not getting confident. But I don't expect the economy to get better. Quite the opposite. These policies just don't support economic growth. We can only sustain so much debt before everything collapses.

    But you're right Republicans shouldn't get confident. It's much better if we stay humble.

    I'm never confident of anything positive happening with this corrupt administration in office. They have no boundaries.....

    I agree.

    I doubt the economy or jobs are going to do any changing before Nov but a lot can happen between now and 2012.

    The Reps shouldn't take anything for granted or think they are going to sweep anything.

    I also think that a lot of the ire out there is against encumbants of both parties.

    Will have to see how that plays our or if it plays out.

    Thats what the GOP is going to have to respond to in 2012. The GOP has no accomplishments that they can speak of. If they want their campaign to be centered around...

    "Nothing positive happend with this corrupt administration"....Good luck to them

    Please don't leave out the impact that the Tea party is having on the GOP. The relationship began as a love fest but has, and will continue to deteriate. I really do not see either side compromising in their battles.
