That there is a big weakness. He overwhelmingly lost the independent vote in the midterms and his solution is to mine vote from the base? What effect did the collage vote have last election? Not much more than the previous election. It was the independents and fed up anti Bush Republicans who voted for him. Running a man afraid to challenge Obummer was another problem. Shouldn't he devote time to bringing these lost voters back? He isn't because the WH knows they lost the base. Two polls posted here this week showed Obummer losing blacks and latinos. He did not deliver them all the promises he made.
I don't understand all the doom and gloom over beating this nit wit after the colossal defeat he had in the midterms. He has a record for the first time in his life. He cannot point to one thing he has improved and in most cases they have gotten worse. Just look at how much damage Trump is doing hitting him on a few key things. No need for gloom.
Lazlo I think the Obama re-election is far from a given, the vast turn against them in the 2010 midterms has festered and grown and BO’s response has been a disaster. As I sample the responses to any BO related articles in all MSM publications the vast majority are highly and vocally anti-Obama sounding a lot like FR. IMO the ABO effect will be high and I still think that there may be a primary opponent, possibly Hillary.
“Running a man afraid to challenge Obummer was another problem.”
You may have been unintentional in your choice of words but right now we only have women willing to take him on.
