    Every president in recent memory that has won a second term had a big drop in approval during his first term and then came back.

    Obama has been through that.

    The Repub line- up does look as weak as it could possibly be. Hell, I'd pick those people to run to ensure an O'bama victory. :D

    I'm sure Obama will have us all convinced that 50,000,000 unemployed, $5 gas, inflation, $14,000,000,000,000 debt, $1,200,000,000,000 deficits, Obamacare and three wars are all wonderful things and we'll all be chanting "four more years!"

    Yep... I can see it now.

    I remember them saying it about George HW Bush, who did not have 9+% unemployment, $4 gasoline, and rising foreclosures after 3 years in office.
    Virtually every election Obama has campaigned in since he took office has been a loser. His support is mostly hype, with indpendents fleeing him in droves.

    I just can't believe the Independents would fall for Obama's BS again unless, of course, the GOP nominates a real loser.

    Whistling past the graveyard.

    Right now, the Ryan plan, Wisconsin, and various other dingbat GOP governors are handing the 2012 race to President Obama.
