Skip to comments.George Will likes Obama's 2012 reelection chances (Video)
Posted on 12/25/2011 11:26:50 AM PST by Rufus2007
Despite the steady stream of negative economic numbers, conservative Washington Post columnist George Will thinks that President Barack Obamas election prospects arent so dire.
All of the numbers say that the president wont be, Will said of the President Obamas election prospects on ABCs This Week Sunday. But if the president carries the John Kerry states, he has 245 electoral votes. He needs 25 more. Dont count the president out.
ABC political analyst Cokie Roberts went further, saying that she thinks the odds are in favor of the presidents reelection.

The problem with the republican elite is they are inbred and no longer bright enough to find their way out of a paper bag.
He's running against Reagan's record.
All of the GOP loves Obama. why is it so hard for everyone to grasp? They put on a show for the idiot voters in both parties and behind closed doors all agree w each other.
Anyone still buying into this two party bs is delusional.
Obama is running against history, a subject he doesn’t understand.
George F. Will has been gelded.
He doesn’t want to lose his TV gig. So he “moderates” his message. It’s that simple
Will is just a watered down version of Bill O Reilly.
They have not loyalty to anyone, but their over inflated egos.
We need a whole slew of new (actual) Conservative talking heads in Washington, D. C.
These enablers are killing our nation. They’ve got it by the throat and are squeezing as hard as they can, every bit as destructive to our nation as the most ardent Leftists.
Krystal, Krauthammer, Will, these clowns are for the most part political eunuchs.
Just another version of ANIMAL FARM. Only the political party names have been changed to protect the guilty.
George has finally reached menopause.
Say hello to Peggy Noonan and Ann Coulter.
Krauthammer is up next.
Given the unappealing GOP candidates and the overall stupidity to the Republican Party, I fear Will (whom I loathe) may be right.
We have one party and about half of another one.
The RINO’s may as well be Democrats and they are about half of the Republican party.
“..They have not loyalty to anyone, but their over inflated egos..”
And their over inflated pay checks which they are willing to do ANYTHING TO ANYONE OR THEIR COUNTRY to keep.
Massachusetts Senator Kerry carried New Hampshire, Maine and Pennsylvania. Is Obama likely to carry New Hampshire, Maine and Pennsylvania in 2012? I'm a little bit skeptical about that assumption.
LOL! You have that right! We actually pay them to help destroy America.
Other than a few scattered house repubs and a few senators, most f the GOP in DC loves Obama. I am convinced of it.
there is one party in this country - the statist thugocracy party.
Yes, George and Cokie, we know Obama walks into election day with a minimum 240 EV in his hip pocket before the first vote is officially counted. We don`t need the stark reminder once again...we get it.
I think he is right, but not for the reasons he cites.
Obama’s reelection is probable because none of the false beliefs that got 69 million people to vote for him in 2008 have improved, indeed, many of them have gotten worse.
The ONLY way to take him down is to relentlessly ATTACK him politically and personally, every day.
There is no one who wants the gig who is capable of this, IMO, and the organized GOP actively recoils from the very idea.
Let’s just stick to his baseball books...
“All of the numbers say”- he’s hearing the talking numbers again.
We heard at this time in 2007 that the GOP was a lock to keep the Presidency. Then McCain happened. Operation Chaos happened. Lehman Brothers happened. And the Marxist radical everyone had written off ran away with the election. Will is just speaking the truth - no matter how bad the economy is next year, Obama will be the guy handing out free government money and the Republican nominee won’t be.
Will didn’t say he wants Obama re-elected. He said he’s afraid he will be. So am I. Obama is the worst president in my lifetime, and the need to field good conservative presidential candidates has never been greater. The GOP has responded to the nation’s need by coming up small.
Why the hell are you people roominating on this guys words?
He is PAID to say whatever he wants. He is a commentator, not a psychic. He collects a paycheck regardless of what reality is.
But damn if doomsday people here loose their sht everyone these people open their mouth.
And those of you that are just acting like defeatist drama queens, you are WORSE. At least Will gets a check for his bullsit whining.
If George Will is working on a Christmas Sunday then I have to rethink what sort of person he is. Until now I thought he was a believing Christian.
George Will is an establishment jerk.
But as long as no one questions Obama or his Administration, he probably will be elected. Seriously, no one questioned the payroll tax deduction (except Republicans who eventually capitulated). They had it right but never questioned the motive effectively.
From Zero Hedge:
Congress/Administration Allows Taxpayers To Keep 2% More Of Their Paycheck For 2 Months Requires Almost 1 Billion Mortgage Refis and Purchases To Fund
We don’t need more people whining.
Far too Manny people on our side are intellectually and physically lazy.
They want “numbers” to tell them that all they have to do is park their butt and let the win roll right on in.
Get a few bumps, and its all time to mope because the big bad establishment is all against me meme gets tossed.
This bipolar garbage is not going to be helpful. Even more so when no vote has actually taken place!
We have the ability to stop Romney and Obama. Either some of us just slog off because it actually involves effort or you rise to the challenge because it takes effort.
George Will is a has-been never-was. He should stick to his baseball books; another subject he knows nothing about.
He isn't "moderating" his message. He's just despairing of the GOP's ability to mount an effective campaign. A sentiment I share -- and I ain't no moderate.
Unfortunately, I have to agree. We did not think Clinton could get re-elected, but he did, even though I know Obama is different than Clinton, he could still make it. I surely hope not, but never underestimate the stupidity of the American people.
I think what George meant to say was, "Don't count the Media out." They will try to hide the slobber, but the love affair continues.
[IF they nominate Romney I guarantee you Obama will be president.]
I don’t think they understand that the conservative base is tired of having Dole/McCain/Romney limp RINOs shoved down our throats. There will be retribution.
Georgie Will be campaigning for Obozo.
At least 40 years ago, Walter Cronkite tried to hide his bias. Today they make no attempt. And, virtually every so-called “conservative” voice on MSM (Will, Scarborough, Noonan, Brooks and 90 percent of the FNC crew) are “faux conservatives” who will parrot whatever whomever is signing their paychecks wants them to say.
There’ s a reason why George Will has been tolerated by the MSM, and why he has tolerated the MSM for decades. He is one of them.
Reading your post again, it’s not often I see this much passive-aggressive BS. Stick to the issues and save the veiled accusations of whininess, laziness and “bipolar garbage” for someone interested in your attitude.
How the hell can this fraudulent bastardo even run with all his hidden and unknown history? If he can’t be stopped for failure to submit then we are done. And what about all the treasonous and unconstitutional acts he’s committed? “Lord help us”!
Oh, and Merry CHRISTmas!!
The Kerry states? All of these so-called pundits never mention what happened in the 2010 midterms. I guess they must have collective amnesia when it comes to the biggest turnover in Congress since the 1938 midterms.
We are heading down the mud slide that we went down with John McCain.
I agree. Anything can happen like October surprises.
IF Obama is in electoral trouble look for an attack on Iran for the October surprise.
But I doubt he will fall behind for numerous reasons.
The dominant left-wing media will eviscerate whomever the GOP nominate. It`ll be a media blood bath while fawning praise on their messiah.
In a debate Obama can hold his own and can talk for 10 minutes, say nothing, and still be impressive merely because of the tone and inflection of his voice.
One of the factors in Obama’s favor is the unwillingness of the American people to admit they are wrong.
Sadly, the American people are unable to govern themselves.
I bet Pennsylvania could be up for grabs.
New Hampshire is not a lock for Hussein.
Neither is New Jersey.
Who elected George Will and Cokie Roberts? Don’t their terms ever expire?
