I have a confession to make: I dont quite understand the jubilation among the conservative-Republican forces during the last two months of the Obama crack-up, and here, unfortunately, is why:
1. The so-called Obama crash. I believe that Obamism 41 months over 8% plus unemployment, anemic GDP growth, serial $1 trillion deficits, unsustainable rates of new aggregate debt, the takeover of health care, record numbers on unemployment insurance and food stamps is not only strangling the country, but in the long run will be seen as such by most Americans. Obama is incoherent ...
(snip) What Does It All Mean?
None of us know what November brings. ...
We have a president who was not truthful about his prior associates and pastor, raising taxes, the Bush-Cheney protocols he once demonized, and promises to follow the law. The law now is followed largely to the degree that it is judged most progressive for most people. On a mundane level, a president is up for reelection who, by common assent, made up almost all the key details in his own memoir, claimed on his own bio that he was born in Kenya, jokes with his middle finger on his chin, laughs about Predator assassination drones protecting his daughters, offers a double-entendre about a sex act with his wife, and links BFD T-shirts to his website. From the fundamental to the ridiculous, Obama is sui generis. After all, we have a man of the people in the White House who has set presidential records for golf outings and fat-cat fundraisers, while running on them/us class warfare to the delight of 50% of the country.
Against all that, rationalizing recent conservative defeats is surely no way to learn from them and learn from them we must.

And he is right (as always), Obama only needs to clubber together 50.1% support in Nov election.
He is correct as usual. Without an honest appraisal of facts we will never do anything but compromise. We will never resolve or change anything in a meaningful way.
Rule number 7 - If you want to beat Obama, then you run a real candidate against him, not a mini-me with great hair.
King William didn't even need that.
Sorry about my ‘word play’. Prof. Hanson used the words - “(Obama) cobble together a 51% majority to win the election’.....
I chose ‘clubber’ as in “by 2 x 4 clubs”.
Remember Commies don’t play by the same rule as the rest of us. They “Lie, Cheat, Bribe, and Club” to achieve their goal, it is their second nature.
/LCBC, sounds like a boys’ band.
I wasn’t disputing your vocabulary; I was disputing your “Percentage required to win”.
