Obama's Chances at Reelection

Big election coming up. My personal opinion is that he would have to try to lose it, however I know there are some who do not share my enthusiasm. I would like to here both sides on why and if they are brave enough who should be the next president.

The republicans have been bouncing around candidates like hot potatoes, each candidate has seen a temporary surge in the polls with an equally sudden drop (aside from Paul), if they don't get their act together I just don't see them beating out Obama in the next election.

To get the nomination in the Republican party you have to prove you're insane at this point. To be president you'd then have to prove you've been joking for a year.

Obama is going to win by more than he beat McCain by last time.

I am going to vote for him and i think that the ideology and intelligence (lack there of) of the republican candidates are not going to jive with most of the people. Obama hasnt had the easiest time of things but i think most people realize that he inherited a huge mess and has done a decent job at cleaning it up considering the domestic and international economy and the character of the wars. Obama all the way :)

Totally agree, how is it that the right wing ideology has gotten so messed up? I honestly (not for a lack of trying) do not understand how people can be so whacked with regards to reason, morality, perspective on the world, etc...

With all the other candidates up for election, than I honestly can't say how he can possibly lose.

For whatever reason the whole party seems to be drifting further right. I'm amazed how santorum was even a frontrunner when his views are so far outside of the mainstream.

Funny thing is, Paul is the only one who doesn’t sway with the political wind, he actually knows what he believes in and stays true to that. Having a guy like this stay far behind guys like all the other candidates (Romney, Gingrich and Santorum) i think says more than enough about the Republican party.

At this point, it's the lesser of two evils, in my opinion. All the Republican candidates scare me a little bit (or a lot in the case of Santorum), and I really wished the Dems had run someone against Obama just to spice him up a bit. Obama honestly was just kind of an average president, and I don't know why we should reward "average" with a second term. Although relative to his Republican opponents he looks better and better. Actually, on reflecting, for me, Obama is probably like how Romney is for most Republicans.

This is one of a long list of your disputes without any factual evidence. Do you have some statistics to cite to back up your point of view?

"I don't understand: why do the republican candidates scare you?"

Because they are all social conservatives. I can do fiscal conservatism (just give me a little bit of economic safety netting now and again), but I cannot stand for social conservatism. And each one of the candidates (at least now while they are running) are staunch social conservatives.

"Obama has absolutely failed us. I don't care if he's black, wants to legalize marijuana, dances with Ellen, or is young and cool, HE. FAILED."

I don't care about any of those things either....why do you bring them up?

"Pick the best candidate."

No, I'm going to vote for the absolute worst one I can find....

"I'd love for Paul to win, but he has no chance."

People champion Paul, but honestly, I just don't agree with many of his stances. He's much too extreme.

"I'm totally fine with Romney."

That's how most people are. They're just kinda "meh" about him. And honestly, out of the Republican candidates, he's who I would favor as well, but that is not to say that I like him or even agree with him.

Yeah, Obama has done great in the past four years!

prove you're insane at this point

Nice, talk about insanity; you keep preaching about how absolutely wonderful Obama is. Look around you.

Stop looking at "liberals" and "conservatives".

Pick the best candidate. I have to admit, I would hate for Santorum to be elected. He's too far right. I'd love for Paul to win, but he has no chance.

I'm totally fine with Romney.
