Too bad that the top two candidates to fill Gene’s spot are likely to lose.

Last poll on NOOT had him winning 45% to Obama’s 43%.

Looks like NOOT is worse than Gen-Eric by six points off the spread.

Remember the election is next year and Obama has unlimited funds to spend. As I look at the 2012 election, Obama is going to be re-elected unless a real Republican steps up and get the nomination. It doing to be a repeat of the 2008 election.

This time its different.

The more we see of Obama, the more we'll be reminded why we hate him!

Obama will struggle to get 40% of the vote.

Did nobody pay attention last year?

Newt and I know a big secret that will become plain to see next year.

After four years of a young, inexperienced, most likely anti-American socialist bent on destroying America, the traditional voter, primarily the baby boomers, will be VERY satisfied to vote for an old white guy.

The old white guy will bring stability and common sense back to the game, and yes, HOPE!
