    oh oh

    SNIP:
    Fri, 2012-03-16 11:16 Celebrated Democratic political consultant James Carville said Friday that a poor economy, persistent unemployment, an ineffective communications team and the president's own inability to connect with voters make Barack Obama beatable in the fall elections."

    We have a pretty weak incumbent," said Carville, who helped a scrappy Bill Clinton to an unlikely 1992 election. Citing Obama's low approval ratings and high unemployment, the advisor noted that the statistics are not on Obama's side. "I've seen worse, but that's on the low side," he said of Obama's ratings among voters, adding, "He's not a shoo-in for reelection."

    That is surprising coming from Carville. Looking at Obama's approval ratings over the last couple years, I am thinking Carville knows what he's talking about.

    It was just a few weeks ago they declared the man a genius on another topic.

    "Romney is the weakest challenging front-runner ever,"

    how do you feel about this part of what he said?

    obama has made voters ANGRY, over the high unemployment rate, the lies he tells about it, the cost of living. It isn't that he's weak, he's pissed off too many people. His lies are crumbling. He's alienated too many people and demographic groups.

    That's NOW, by the time election day rolls around the Golden Yeti will be the only one voting for him.

    That's Romney running in the GOP primaries against conservatives trying to pull the conservative vote.

    If he runs against Barry then he'll be running as a moderate who would appeal to Independent voters. The far rights loathing of Obama will get them out to vote against him rather than "for" any Republican in particular.

    If you were in any way intelligent, you'd understand that, TM.
