    I've been talking this over a lot with friends, and coworkers (avoid politics with family if at all possible). Setting aside if I do/don't like Obama, I don't think he will get re-elected.

    However, I am wondering if a GOP candidate could challange him. Seriously, Bachman, Perry, Romney. Do any of them stand a chance against Obama?

    Looking at the American presidential race from British perspective,I`d say he will be re-elected,barring some drastic event or revelation;but this may be through default;more the poor quality Republican alternative than any great virtues or successes on his part.He seems a disappointing president to me.
    Most of the front runners so far seem very unlikely to win against him;too extreme or inexperienced,etc.Of them,Romney looks the best(or least worst!)
    Having said this,we`re a year out from the election and things can change radically in that time!

    Agreed.

    He may be in good shape for re-election, if he finds 'spine support'. LOL !!! Obama showed some spine with his declaration on the budget, calling for 1.5 trillion to come from new revenues, the end to Bush Tax Cuts, ending loop holes in the tax codes and etc., but if for instance, he cannot find the spine to put US foreign Policy interests before Israeli and AIPAC interests in the Palestinian Statehood request, then he will sink our influence over the entire Middle East. This very very important Foreign Policy issue as with our US budget deficit and unemployment take spine to deal with and as far as I am concerned, if he doesn't keep with showing spine in both these areas, Americans will see him as a reed in the water, wafting whichever way the water flows and we will not re-elect him.

    No, no President gets re-elected in an economy this bad.

    Donald Duck could beat him next year, he's toast.

    I'm not so sure, because a lot of us who voted for him are disgusted to no end with his bargaining away his power 'cards' and public support on many an issue, to supposedly be bipartisan, which doesn't work with a group who are out for no better purpose than to destroy him.

    A lot of people are so fed up with his lack of spine that they've about decided to stay home because we did not get the man he sold us on. With him, I have to wonder if the Military Complex scared the shit out of him and that's why he's gone right along with them on these god damn wars, he certainly isn't going against the Military Complex in the way he led voters to believe he would when he was running for office.



    When I see him with the spine to cut equally from the Military complex, Public programs/entitlements and comparable increases from the corps and the very rich, then He'll definately get more votes from previous backers. This is what he claimed he'd do this past monday when he showed some spine, lets see if he can stick with it. If he doesn't, I afraid he may become a lost cause.

    Nope.
    It won't be about the economy.
    It will be a choice between two candidates.
    And every one of the Repubs running for the Repub nomination is a flawed and unelectable candidate.

    i was not/am not a totally devoted, blind to his faults, President obama supporter.

    BUT

    SO FAR, the GOP has shown me nobody worth voting for.

    The GOP needs to get rid of all those narrow minded, bible thumping screwballs if they really want a viable chance to win the white house in 2012.
