    So, now Barbour's an evil genius who can predict the future?

    No. Apparently, he is a realist.

    Obama, in my opinion, is headed for BIG trouble in '12. Inflation, $5 gas, MASSIVE debt, MASSIVE deficits, no foreign policy, Obamacare, high unemployment...

    Obama can spin it all he likes, blame it all on Bush, rant about evil Republicans want ting to kill kids with Autism, senior eating dog food, jobs saved.. whatever. It doesn't mean squat to the millions upon million of unemployed, spending $100+ a week to gas up, increasing food, housing, energy costs etc.

    Obama's got a problem.

    Well, I 'm no fan... I don't think he had the stomach for 6 months of being called a big, fat, white old racist by the whackaloon left, hemp bag crowd.

    Who could blame him?

    I don't think it was Paul Ryan.

    If I had to put money on it, I'd say that the visuals of Barbour running against an incumbant black president would not have been good. You can't put someone who likes confederate flags up against the black guy.

    Perhaps... the race card will be played big time regardless of who runs against him.

    the race card will be played in its way by the people running against him, too.

    but you really think a picture of barbour in front of a confederate flag wouldn't look abysmal? it's like men getting divorced should always have a woman lawyer because the woman can say whatever she wants to about the soon to be ex wife whereas a guy saying it looks like he's beating up on the woman.

    mitt doesn't have the same baggage as barbour and i say that even though i happen to like barbour. i don't agree with him. i wouldn't vote for him, but i think he's a sharp guy.
