    You don't hear much about this, but the chance still exists.

    Sooner or later even this delusional President is going to have to come to grips with his own ineptitude.

    If and when he finally admits (first to himself) that he is a massive fail as President, is there any chance that he will do the right thing and decide NOT to seek re-election?

    I mean, sure. He's a narcissist. But even so: who thinks that he might pull an LBJ and someday announce that he will not seek a second term?

    Deep pockets do have a way of talking.

    Jimmy Carter still blames others for his own failures. Obama is a worse narcissist than Jimmy. Hell, he blames his current failures on ATM machines and Japanese typhoons. Why do you think he will announce anythng different?

    I am not sure that I DO think he ever will.

    I just think it is a possibility.

    Perhaps his narcissism will lead him to seek to avoid a public thumping on Election Day.

    When you see public polls declaring voter regret ("damn, I wish I had voted for Hillary Clinton in the primaries" type stuff from remorseful Democratics) and when you see The NY Slimes publicly addressing the huge doubts about his President's re-electability this far in advance of even the Primary season, I do see some potential for him to be gently shown the door.

    The Party sees this train wreck coming and they are powerless to stop it. There is not another Democratic candidate to take Obama's place. Obama's strategy is to propose his stupid "jobs' bill and then blame the GOP for the bad economy when they fail to pass it. It is typically cynical and weak.

    Of course the Dems deserve this richly. Nancy Pelosi told them Americans would eat up free health care and assure the party dominance for years and like fools they believed her.

    I have actually come to want Obama to lose because I really do believe his ego needs it.

    Obama will never ever in a gazillion years admit that he is a failure. He will go to his grave (and beyond) blaming BOOOOSSSHHHH, the GOP, bitter bible gun clingers, private jet owners, Billionaire-Millionaires, the GOP, Congress, Big Corporations, Wall St., and pretty much all of humanity for not cooperating in violating the laws of physics, economics, history and other measures of reality to conform the Universe to His Will.
