    Admittedly, I never was a fan of President Obama, either as a candidate or now as president. I always suspected, based on his dependence on corporate money and his lackluster career as a state and US senator that he would, ultimately, prove to be a big disappointment to the millions of Democrats, liberals, progressives and independents that fell for his slick rhetoric. He has always been too much a part of the two-party plutocracy to ever be a true reformer. Here are some of the main reasons that he should cut his ties to corporate and political elites, announce that he will not run for reelection and, instead, become the populist, reformist president the nation desperately needs:

    A pretty good article, and I'm glad you posted it.

    I'll give you a rep in a moment.

    And if you don't mind I'd like to twist the thread a bit, from 'he shouldn't run,' to why he will have a second term
    1. This guy is an amazing speaker.

    2. Many Americans are too busy to study the landscape the way we do it here on the board, and will be swayed by his speaking ability.

    3. Form and substance are too often confused- or is that the same as #2?

    4. Check out the number of anti-Obama folks who are interested in a third party: this would insure a second term.

    5. Republicans can only win if Americans are wise enough to vote ideas instead of personalities, and the Repubs don't have as charming a candidate as President Obama.


    So, the President would be silly not to pick up all the marbles, as they will be just sitting there.

    The big hope is taking back the House in '10.

    That's my 2 cents.

    6. Republicans don't have a candidate who is worth a spit

    Unfortunately neither does the Democratic Party or Libertarians or Greens...

    Truly no one is able to face what must be faced. The people do, so... who will step up and listen to what they want?

    That is who will win. If no one does, be careful what you wish for.

    Democrats have President Obama and also Hillary who are highly electable

    Republicans do not have a single candidate capable of winning a general election

    You would be naive to over look Sarah Palin

    She is like the "Rocky" of the republican party.
