President Barack Obama: narrow winner or big loser in November. Presidential election history gives us indications that Mr. Obama either squeaks back into the White House or gets an undignified boot in the back of his designer trousers. In modern presidential elections, only Jerry Ford lost his re-election bid narrowly. Odds are, if Mr. Obama loses, it will probably be on the order of Hoover (1932) or Carter (1980).
If Mr. Obama wins, it's closer to George W. Bush's re-election in 2004. But the conditions are dramatically different in the country from 2004, and not to Mr. Obama's advantage.
A narrow win by Mr. Obama would be thanks to bungling by Mitt Romney and the Republicans, because based on the president's record alone, Mr. Obama has richly earned a pink slip from voters.
The Obama presidency is a big, fat failure, despite all the spin emanating from the White House, Democrat flaks, and the left's petting-zoo media. Americans are living Mr. Obama's economic failure daily; their dreary experiences (or those of family and neighbors) cut right through the liberal-manufactured smoke and fog.
Campaigns of distraction distract only monetarily.
Incumbents are always about their performances, their records. A politician up for re-election is a referendum-in-the-making; an up or down vote by the electorate. That's the core strategic consideration of Romney's General Election campaign.
In a referendum election, all Mr. Romney has to do is satisfy voters that he's competent, advocates sensible remedies to the nation's economic dilemma, and plans to stop Uncle Sam's profligate spending and not raise taxes. Romney is well-suited to accomplish all three aims. Romney's character hasn't been an issue through a grueling intraparty vetting; it shouldn't be one in the General Election, despite anticipated efforts by Mr. Obama's team and the left to do so.

I HOPE Obama is a LOSER in Nov by the NARROWIST of Margins!
I hate to say it but that would mean Obama wins a close one. But then I live in loony ground zero land so my perception may be tainted.
“O will be either a narrow winner or big loser in November 2012”......
We already know he is a “big loser”, now all we have to do is make sure he is not a narrow winner either.
RE: I HOPE Obama is a LOSER in Nov by the NARROWIST of Margins!
Why don’t you hope for a landslide defeat instead?
Well... CONSERVATIVES understand it's a big, fat failure, but to the burgeoning parasite class, he's King, and to the average voter in the dumbed-down, marginally aware American electorate, he's "acceptable."
I don't buy the "Obama wins close or loses big" theory. Obama would have to lose states the GOP hasn't won in a generation.
The only antidote we have against a second Urkel administration or a first Romney one is to elect as many Tea Partiers as possible to Congress.
BHO will win reelection (primarily because of Romney). BHO’s campaign slogan “why vote for Romney, when you already have me, after all we are the same”.
That alone says Ubama is toast, unless they have somehow hijacked the vote-counting process, which is entirely possible.
I'm gonna win big cause I'm solidifying my base!
Rat always beats Rat-Lite.
There are plenty of Freepers who will cheer an 0bama victory at the expense of Mitt Romney.
“Vote Obama in November. Even the Republican candidate agrees with him”
The slogans write themselves.
Hopefully they will also cheer for SCOTUS Justice Eric Holder and Van Jones..
So it gives the Leftists and diverse crowd a reason to riot?
I want him to lose so big the media—national and local—have to acknowledge the Carter size failure.
With his abysmal record I can't see how Obama can win and I don't believe leftist operatives can steal enough votes to put Obama over the top, unless it really is a very close vote. I see it as 1980 all over again, except without a conservative winner. Romney will not govern like a conservative but Obama is so extremely leftist that even a 'moderate' Republican such as Mitt Romney will seem 'conservative' and I can guarantee the leftmedia will constantly portray him as 'extremely conservative' should Romney win the election. At this point constant carping about Romney not being conservative, while true, accomplishes nothing. Barack Obama is a distinct threat to America and must be defeated.
If they are not beaten by a wide margin, their election fraud machine, perfected over the years, will carry them over the top.
