Mitt is going to win every state G.W. Bush won in either of his elections. That is now 296 electoral votes. And heck even if I am too optimistic and he wins just those states Bush won twice he would have 281 electoral votes.

How does Obama get to 270?

“Mitt is going to win every state G.W. Bush won in either of his elections. That is now 296 electoral votes.”

No he isn’t.

Bush won with thin margins despite being personally likeable, a moderate as opposed to a determined leftwing activist and running with a modestly energized base. Bishop Willard is easily the most loathsome candidate the GOP has ever run in its entire history. In the general, Bishop Willard will be reduced to a wet spot of churned mud made of cultist tears, wardheeler sweat, blank RNC donation forms and the styrofoam beads that make up his core.

I think that this is way too optimistic. Bush had a unified and enthusiastic party behind him (particularly in 2000) and he barely won both times. Romney is a weaker candidate than McCain who managed to lose to Obama with margin to spare. As the Democrats proved in 2004, a weak candidate can lose to even a vulnerable President. I think that Republicans will view 2012 the same way that Democrats view 2004: a missed opportunity.
