  1. Romney is a lock on Super Tuesday according to the science.


    To deny this is to both deny the snazziness of Mitt Romney and to deny science.

    Don't be one of those anti-evolution goofballs.

    The math is in Mittens' favor. All he has to do is win Ohio and he can start playing four-corners offense.

    But is relying on the electoral math a good thing for the GOP? They would rather have a candidate that they could nominate by acclamation by now.

    I don't think it matters how quickly Romney wins.

    The general election will be about the economy. If it continues its recent slow but steady improvement and the American electorate feels that improvement, Obama will win easily even against Romney. If the economy stalls or slides backwards, Obama will lose even if Santorum or Gingrich wins the nomination.
  6. I don't think people understand the precarious position Obama is in. During his first three years things were crappy (sorry to get all technical on you).

    His two biggest accomplishments - Obamacare and the Stimulus are two things he can't even mention in campaign stops because they are so very unpopular with the country at large.

    His cabinet members are the political equivalent of hand grenades that already have their pins pulled. Eric Holder is a huge liability in the southern border states and among gun owners at large because of Fast and Furious. Kathleen Sebelius single handed lost the Catholic vote in an unforced error. Why did contraception have to be an issue now? Stephen Chu's energy policies have been disastrous clean-energy fantasies which have doubled the cost of gas. You could go on down the line.

    If Obama pivots on things like the Keystone pipeline - people will say he's doing it just to get elected. His credibility will be shot. Obama had a joint session of Congress where he demanded a jobs bill that would have been a $300 billion stimulus junior. The Senate said no way and then and only then did the economy start to turn around. Every thing Obama will try now will leave people asking - why didn't you do that earlier? His best case scenario is Jimmy Carter.

    And don't look for him to shine in the debates either. The media will have to ask him the tough questions this time around. He won't be able to get away with platitudes this time around. Hope and change answers will make him look like an out of his depth fool.

    Romney maximus est!!

    Oh, and if you're talking margin, Romney has farfarfar more of a chance to be the Jimmy Carter of that scenario. Auto industry strong again, economic indicators picking up slowly but surely, out of the war we should have never been in, unified party behind him as opposed to the party that is too fractured to ever truly unify behind one candidate and has one faction that will keep the party from moving to the center, where the votes are.

    Oh, and it might get mentioned a time or two under whose watch Bin Laden bought it.
  10. The auto industry may be getting strong as a whole but not GM and not Chrysler which is now not even and American company. GM delayed the news on the Volt and the layoffs of 1300 workers until after the Michigan primary so that it wouldn't highlight the mess that is Government Motors (who hasn't paid back the government loan as they would have you believe).

    Bill Clinton had it right - it's the economy stupid. The only news that could effect the election out of Iraq or Afghanistan will be bad news and Obama's drawdown of troops will be viewed as a move by a President who didn't listen to his generals.

    The Bin Laden card has been played. Any crowing about it will look like he's trying to take credit from the Navy Seals and open up additional criticism because it will allow people to highlight Obama's military cuts effecting the same people who pulled the trigger on Obama.

    You think the Republicans are fractured but all three major candidates are virtually tied in polls against Obama. You have to be whistling past the graveyard not to realize that is a huge problem for Obama. When a single Republican candidate turns his attention to Obama - there will be no hiding from the record.

    It is not a very good record. Not good at all.

    I just hope that I can get excited enough about our country's future to vote in the super duper Tuesday.
