Man, you guys are either reading my old posts, or reading my mind tonight. I said the exact thing two years ago. The Dems are practically stuck with this moron, because there's no way to extract him from the race without causing a rebellion of black Democrats against the rest of the party.
Even though many blacks are souring on him now, if the party were to move him out of the way for any stated reason (including a catastrophic illness), blacks would immediately suspect foul dealings behind the scenes. You'd never be able to convince them otherwise, either. If they lose the black vote, they're sunk forever.
Which brings us full circle. The Dems are stuck with him, no matter how much damage he causes to their party. I'll bet that most of the old bulls have already conceded that they're about to enter a rebuilding phase. Time to go quiet and play nice with the opposition until they can elevate the farm team to the majors.
I agree with you. Anyone who thinks Obama is going down in a landslide is simply fooling themselves. Anyone who thinks Obama will be dumped from the ticket is similarly deluded. Never gonna happen. This will be a fight to the finish.
That, my friend, will be one of the biggest post-election surprises of this race.
My Prediction is as Follows:
1. The Dems get Obama out before the convention. Only question is how. scandal, sickness, health, etc...
2. Biden is named president.
3. Biden picks Hillary as his VP.
4. Biden steps down for reasons of health.
5. Hillary picks a war hero for VP and runs for President.
6. Close race—Hillary wins.
7. She dismantles much of Obama’s Rule and healthcare.
Yep, they’ll vote Romney and never say a word.
I don't think there's any question that Valerie Jarret, Michelle Obama, and Axlerod run the Obama 'brain' fart trust. It's the Keystone Kops around that place. I don't think Obama's getting any sort of expert advice, and if he is, Jarret and Michelle are filtering most of it out.
That’s certainly possible.
The powers that be look at 0bama as a problem and they’ll figure it out.
The bottom line could be they want Romney because he will do damage control and slow down the train wreck.
Just no way.
Welcome to FR.
People are getting overly confident.
Obama took only a narrow majority here in a diehard small county in WV in 2008, which lower percentage itself was due to the prevailing anti-Obama mood from his known campaign statements.
Now that he has had 4 years to try to destroy the coal industry and the basis of the WV economy, people really hate him. Even the sitting Democrat Governor and Senator have let it be known they don't support him, so much so that the recent statewide Democrat Convention actually called on all officeholders to support the President of their own part!
When the literally unknown challenger won 42% of the vote against Obama in the May primary, there were actually 6 precincts in our county that gave a MAJORITY to the absolutely unknown challenger. (Important: the fact that he is a convict serving time in Alabama was NOT known until after the election.)
I know of some Mormon Republicans who didn't particularly care for Romney but just like blacks in '08, given the choice of voting for "one of your guys" or "the other guy," many Mormons, especially if they are Republican will pull the lever for him.
A lot like Catholics in days gone by, they settled around a Parish/School together so kids had friends from school, church, etc. to play together with and walk to school.
Everywhere my daughter has moved (now Boise suburb)her entire neighborhood, save a few are all Mormon. Her husband grew up in both Co. Springs and lived in Loveland, again neighbors all Mormon.
Viewing the map N,S,E & W of Utah, think Mormon Country.
I know Harry Reid is also Mormon (go figure) but he'd never be elected w/out Mormon votes.
Even if Obama was to win, I believe the mind-set of the country will be Conservative enough that he will have to deal with a Republican Senate and House and he will be hamstrung. He will have an impotent second term.
Harry Reid is also Mormon (go figure) but he’d never be elected w/out Mormon votes.
To vote for a dude who espouses killing babies and same-sex marriage, that tells me Mormons’ morality is a mile wide and an inch deep.
People don't like to hear this, but strategy-wise, it's better to have a hog-tied Obama in office, rather than a liberal stealth Democrat like Romney, who a Republican Congress will roll over for.
It's Art of War 101, but most people are simply too frightened of Zero to understand it. They're going to vote in the one guy who really can cement Zero's leftist agenda in place. Zero himself has no chance of doing that, because the opposition on the right will be too overwhelming to overcome. In fact, Zero would be lucky to survive a second term at all.
