The only one who can beat Obama is the anti-Obama...not the next closest thing.
This is an important and insightful axiom.
Many folks on this forum fail to recognize how formidable a candidate Obama is/will be. Especially with every conceivable media and popular culture outlet soundly in his corner.
Remember the sh!tbombs Romney landed on Newt between SC and FLA? Magnify that 100x and then imagine it going on for 90 consecutive days.
Plus that commie charlatan is well liked by those who receive a green US Treasury check...and every state/local municipal employee. Unions. All those teachers, janitors and bus drivers. All those businesses who derive the bulk of their revenue from the government...or are the beneficiary of favorable tax breaks and non-regulation.
And women. He'll likely win 60% and 70% of the subgroup of single women.
Hispanic vote. Black vote. Catholic vote. Jewish vote. Asian vote.
Obama walks in the door with at least 48% of the general electorate. Locked in.
People! Please don't think this is going to be easy. Don't think that because a 5th grader can figure out who the best choice is...that they'll actually choose that way when the choice is "What's good for me vs What's good for the nation".
While it's entirely possible we have Crossed the Rubicon and all hope is already lost, we must fight to our last breath, lest we be known to our enslaved posterity as the toilette scum we would otherwise be.
Our only hope is Newton Leroy Gingrich. The anti-Obama.
