    I gaze into my crystal ball....

    "Barack Obama will win reelection in 2012. The crowds gather around Obama at his victory rally on the dark, yet unusally warm, November night.

    "Four more years! Four more years!" They scream, as Obama comes onto stage. His wife Michelle holds his hand. His two daughters gracefully follow.....

    It will not be a particularly close election.

    Mitt Romeny will run a poor campaign and lose most of the significant battleground states like Ohio, North Carolina, Colorado, and maybe even Arizona.

    His corny white collar-worker slogan, "Get with Mitt!" doesn't quite carry a legacy like "I like Ike!"

    GOP will keep the House and win the Senate but only by 1 or 2 seats.

    John Boehner sobs like a baby as he spits rhetoric to a sea of white faces in an upper class hotel event space."

    ... the crystal ball has delivered the prophecy.

    This election will be decided based on the economy during the two month period leading up to election day.

    The conservative partisans WILL vote R

    The liberal partisans will vote D.

    It's how the TRULY independent voters (maybe 10% of all voters) that will carry the day

    You don't think Obama will be reelected? With MittBot and Medieval Man as the current GOP frontrunners, he simply cannot miss. In fact, if things continue on the same laughable trajectory, Obama can send his campaign people home, shut down his PACs, turn off his website and go to Hawaii...for a couple of months.....
