    Republicans have only won the popular presidential vote in one election in the last 20 years.....2004.

    So the only way Republicans can win is for the Supreme Court to change the rules for campaign contributions, allowing billionaire donors to give hundreds of millions of dollars to Romney's campaign, and then have the states illegally block the people's right to vote.

    Reagan won in a landslide twice. Obama is in a far worse position than Carter was economically.

    Having just had the opportunity to watch the election adds on US television for three weeks, I was struck how not a single pro-Obama add talked about his record as President for 4 years. They were exclusively devoted to scaring voters about his opponent.

    Actually Obama is the Democrat's Reagan....

    George W. Bush inherited a strong economy, a budget surplus, and a nation at peace.

    Eight years later, he left Obama with a shattered economy, a trillion dollar deficit, and two useless wars.

    Obama saved the country from another Great Depression, rebuilt GM, reformed healthcare, reformed Wall Street, doubled the stock market, created 12 straight quarters of GDP growth, created 29 straight months of private sector job growth, got Bin Laden, got Gaddafi, and got us out of Iraq.

    And now with the automatic spending cuts and the expiration of the Bush tax cuts in 2012, Obama has solved the deficit problem as well.

    Obama has done a very good job.

    Pretty simple: if you ask most Americans if they are better off now than 4 years ago, what do you think they will answer? And this actually is more true of Obama's core constituencies than those of the Republicans.

    The idea in political office elections is to show how your apponent is not good for you.

    he is running on his record.

    Your party is running on LIES about his record.

    Lies, cheating and giving our elections to the wealthy is the only way republicans can win elections

    Well, since the election has never been decided by the popular vote, you might try to come up with something relevant.

    That only applies if you have nothing to show for your time as an incumbent.

    Challengers by nature have to run against the person in office. Incumbents should be able to run on what they have done for you already.

    Obama's campaign went negative on Romney right off the bat. Good luck keeping that level of spite up and running until November. People will get numb to it and tune it out.
