CNN poll: 52% say Obama doesn't deserve reelection in 2012


Meanwhile, after over a year of Hope & Change in Washington, Vice President Biden sez:

"Washington right now is broken," and the country is in "deep trouble."

I wonder how many of the remaining 48% were simply "undecided".

I know, off topic, but I gave you a mention at my blog for pointing out that Mike was correct on global warming back in 2007.

That's a good question, and Obama has plenty of time to help them decide for certain, either way.

We can only hope Dick Cheney is correct and Obama is a one term president. But Conservatives, Republicans, need to have an excellent candidate (unlike McCain) to offer Americans.

Hi Debbie. Or unlike Dole, too. Obama's political trajectory so far is very--almost eerily--similar to Clinton's. Recall that the latter had his own hill to climb to re-election with his own fiscal and foreign policy jawdroppers, including a massive tax hike which he promised he woudn't do (Obama just set up a "commission" to give him cover when he does) and an attempt to socialize healthcare, all of which led to the historic loss of both houses of congress in '94 that made prospects for re-election unlikely at the time.

But the loss of congress and the conservatice revival that enabled it ended up helping him, as he was willing to triangulate and stay out in front as the percolating economy was poised to boom with the Tech Revolution.

Then came Bob Dole, who, like McCain, thought that playing nice would help him win against ruthless political animals.

(Funny how seasoned war veterans let a couple of metrosexuals who never wore the boots outflank, outshoot, and defeat them).

There are important differences. One being that I don't see a major revolution on the horizon in some industry that would positively transform and grow the economy (and I don't think windmills can generate enough of the hot air needed to even inflate an economic balloon)--something Clinton still credits his tax-hikes for (Gore tried to get a piece of it when he boasted that he "invented the Internet").

My bet is still with what Cheney said, but a lot can happen between now and the midterms (like all-out war in the Middle East, for example) and between the midterms and '12.

The battle for the soul of the Republican party will decide whether we put forth another McCain in '12--and give Obama four more years.

Although I think even McCain might very well win if the election were held again today...
