The only thing that the GOP could do to loose this election is to nominate Jimmy Carter .... the stripper at the local club could do a better job if all she did was rubber stamp what the House will be sending down the pipe the first week
I don't see re-elections about earning to keep one's job. Each election stands on its own. Bush was a bad President, but in 2004 the people had to choose between two candidates. Even with Bush's overall approval fairly low, the people felt that he would still do a better job than Kerry. So 2012 is not and will not be about whether Obama has earned keeping his job. It will be the same as any other election, about which candidate convinces the American people that he/she can do better than the other.
After 8 years of Bush and you guys going "Bravo bravo, encore" over war crimes, torture, loss of liberties, domestic spying, the worst terrorist attack in history, loss of standing in the world, loss of jobs, flat wages, failed disaster recoveries, low taxes on the wealthly..
He has the most failed and embarrassing administration since Carter, it's true.
But we have weathered without a complete collapse of the economy or WW3. Let's be grateful for that. We all have to learn lessons and be more diligent in selecting our candidates. All of the red flags were there. No executive experience, junior senator, other than that, a community organizer, with Acorn no less.
We didn't pay attention when we found out what kind of church he went to and befriended other szeemly characters as Bill Ayers. We got what we deserved.
Let's do due diligence on our next selections. Obama's mentor and friends should have been an eye opener to the kind of people he would appoint to his administration and the SCOTUS.
I hope we pay attention to the debates. That's where I think we'll see them in the truest light.
Whatever our choices or even party or political affiliation, I believe the character, resume and who he/she emulates is the best way to choose.
