    Obama with a Republican House will be close to unbeatable in 2012 imo. (I recognize the Senate is still slightly more Democrat)

    He will constantly appear to be a centrist, pragmatist because that's what he really is. Independents and swing voters will appreciate that and lefty liberals will accept it, if grudgingly. The Republicans will have no way to paint him in a corner, because he'll be willing to meet them half way. That, and the bully pulpit. The Republican nominee in 2012 has no chance. I'd put my money where my mouth is in a heartbeat.

    You folks think he's a hard line liberal. He's not. If something needs to get done, he's willing to move a little one way or the other to make it happen as he stated. It's been obvious if you follow him closely.

    With Pelosi as head of the House, he had to tack more left. Now he'll be forced where he wants to go anyway, which is the center.

    If you read the book Audacity of Hope, you'll find, though his ideals are a little left of center, he recognizes the country is dead-center on the whole and that's where policy should be taken in most cases.

    What's so hard to understand?

    Soros must have approached Obama privately with the idea of only serving him for one term and when Obama declined, Soros went public and announced he was going to back another candidate.

    Obama is a one-termer who will not get the Dem nomination in 2012

    There's a difference between being a Senator and President. Besides how could you rate any Republican over the last 2 years, they're almost all right at the end of the spectrum, voting far right on everything in opposition to everything the House and Obama and their Democrat Senator counterparts are doing. Obama was in the same boat with Bush in office. He's not an extreme lefty.

    If he uses the EPA to control carbon output, and the FCC to control internet access, he's an extreme lefty. If he gets in the way of repealing Obamacare, he's an extreme lefty.

    Only if he spends the next two years undoing everything he did and promised to do in the first two years can he get re-elected.

    Clinton followed a largely Repubican agenda for two years with real spending and welfare cuts. No way Obama does this.
