    My opinion ...Obama will be a one term President... in fact .. I don't think he'll make it past the primaries for 2012...

    Who else would step into the role of defending that record? I don't see Hillary taking him on, especially with the economic problems & entitlement cuts needed. I see Christie as the only guy who has the stones to fix the US budget.

    Never underestimate the ineffectiveness of the other party.
    I do not believe the Republicans are so utterly stupid to make Palin the choice...but then again...stranger things have happened.
    Palin against Obama?...toss up.

    your opinion is a bit premature. he has a higher approval rating than reagan and clinton at this point in their terms.

    makes you sound like a hack.

    It remains to be seen. I think if the election were held today he would be in for a fight for sure. He can not count on pretending to be a moderate and fiscal conservative anymore.

    But 2 years is a long long time. Presidents with much lower numbers than his, have come back to win a second term in the past.

    Don't count those chickens just yet.

    Clinton owes his re-election to working with Republican majorities and the ensuing prosperity.

    Has Obama showed any willingness to moderate or change?

    Hell no.

    Carter was still viable and clear up till the day of the election. One Pollster (no longer in business) even had him ahead on election day.

    As to what I think, your fingers to Gd's ear.

    A lot can happen in 2 years. America could undergo a mass lobotomy, making them incapable of telling shit from shinola. That might allow Obama to squeak in a second term.

    No, Obama is an idiot. He is totally out of his depth and doesn't learn from his mistakes. He just blames others. I don't know what he will do, but I do think he will do something to screw up badly. Maybe Afghanistan will become a Viet Nam style quagmire. Maybe we will have another terrorist attack. Maybe his record in Chicago will reveal real scandal. Maybe he will be shown to be a foreign national. Maybe he will appoint Hugo Chavez to his cabinet.
    Look at his infrastructure program. He promised "shovel ready jobs" even though he knew a year ago there was no such thing. Yet just 2 weeks ago he promised a new infrastructure program.
    The possibilities are endless. But his inability to govern, his surrounding himself with equal incompetents, his lying, his Leftist ideology all mitigate against him being successful in the job.
    A GOP candidate would have a field day with all his lies, flip flops, and failures.

    If he thinks he can spend the next two years bitching that Republicans won't rubber stamp his garbage, he's fucked.
