    1. Barack Obama won, in 2008, by 7% of the vote.

    2. The President now admits, albeit inadvertently, that he will lose this time. He tells his supporters:
    "This election is going to be even closer than the last one," Obama told Iowa Democrats..."
    Obama warns backers: This will be a close election


    3. Would any like to argue that he is wrong...and Obama will get more votes this time than last?


    4. Do you realize that George Bush actually did better the second time?

    a. He went from 48% of the electorate the first time, to 51% the second time.

    b. He received 11.5 million more votes the second time than the first.

    5. Democrat Senator from Georgia, Zell Miller spoke for Bush at the Republican Convention. He was the keynote speaker. Text Of Zell Miller's RNC Speech - CBS News

    a. Which Republican Senators have endorsed President Obama? Any?



    6. New York City three time Mayor Ed Koch, "a Democrat, will for the first time in his life vote for a Republican presidential candidate..."...Bush. Ed Koch: I’m voting for Bush

    a. Name a couple of major Republicans who have announced they will vote for Obama.

    b. Then there is Arthur Davis, former Democratic Party member of the United States House of Representatives for Alabama's 7th congressional district, four termer, "' one of President Obama’s earliest supporters and a former co-chairman for his presidential campaign, announced Tuesday that he was leaving the Democratic Party for good."
    Artur Davis, former prominent Obama backer, leaves Democratic Party - Los Angeles Times




    7. Historically, how many Presidents have run for re-election and won with smaller percentages of the electorate?
    None.

    8. Lots of Democrats voted for Bush in 2004. Are you expecting lots of Republicans to vote for Obama???

    a. "Republicans hold an enthusiasm advantage over Democrats, as a majority of them say they are “more enthusiastic than usual about voting” for president, according to a new poll Thursday."
    Republicans more excited to vote - POLITICO.com


    Oh....one more piece of bad news for Obama?

    "...But in the 12 battlegrounds — Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin — ...in this late-June sample, the results were Obama, 47 percent, to Romney at 45 percent. In other words, after Obama spent an estimated $68 million or more over Romney in the battlegrounds on negative ads during this time period, Obama lost a net 7 points."

    And...

    “According to the RealClearPolitics average of polling in 12 swing states, Obama has leads outside the margin of error in only Pennsylvania, New Hampshire and Nevada, Romney leads in two (North Carolina and Missouri) and the rest are essentially tied, such as Obama’s 0.8 percent lead in Florida.”

    Chill the champagne, Republicans!

    Now...don't be too hard on those '08 Obama-voters....they knew not what they did.

    " he will loose"

    He didn't say that, he said it would be closer.

    Obama represents the far left wing of the Democratic Party, and it's a faction that has to be defeated. The US can't afford it. It's better, even for the democrats, that he loses. Next time they can run a more centrist candidate, like Clinton for instance, and then regain the trust of Americans.

    1. You should know by now that I never lie.

    2. Why is it always my job to attempt to bring the lesser among us up to a semblance of literacy???

    OK....I suppose it is based on the concept that 'a conservative is never so tall as when she stoops to lift up a Liberal....'

    I'll try...but based on your innate intelligence, the result is doubtful.


    From the OP:

    "2. The President now admits, albeit inadvertently, that he will lose this time. He tells his supporters:
    "This election is going to be even closer than the last one," Obama told Iowa Democrats..."
    Obama warns backers: This will be a close election

    "...albeit inadvertently..."

    al·be·it/ôlˈbē-it/
    Conjunction:
    Although: "he was making progress, albeit rather slowly".

    in·ad·vert·ent/ˌinədˈvərtnt/
    Adjective:
    Not resulting from or achieved through deliberate planning; unintentional.
    (of a mistake) Made through lack of care; negligent.


    So...the phrase "...albeit inadvertently..." means he didn't mean to, but accidently did it...
    Beginning to see why no one ever copied off your paper?



    3. In English writing, quotation marks or inverted commas (informally referred to as quotes or speech marks)[1] are punctuation marks surrounding a quotation, direct speech,...
    Quotation mark - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Now, notice that quotation marks are found here: "This election is going to be even closer than the last one,"

    See....that is telling you what Obama actually said.

    Quotation marks, again: "You are a fool."
    That was me who said that.
    Don't mistake it for all the other folks who tell you that.

    In the Senate race, polling has The Republicans safely holding 46 seats and 3 leaning republican = 49;

    and Democrates safely holding 39 seats with 7 leaning Democrat = 46.

    Of the 5 toss ups, MT, NM, IN, VA, and MA, the chances of Republicans picking up MT and IN may be good.

    While, of course, you are essentially correct....the problem is that the far Left owns today's Democrat Party.

    The saving grace for the rest of us is that Obama is so bad at the game, that he showed his cards.

    Hillary, Panetta, Ickes, etc., etc., are cut from the same mold....just better at hiding same.

    That's why Democrats are the candidates of the uninformed.
