ok

since owebama nation has crumbled and the Clown Prince is now a lib cancer................................

the only real question is.....................

who WILL be the 2012 dem nominee?

Nov 27, 2010 5:42 pm

Perhaps Harry Truman.....

Someone may run against him in the primaries if things continue to go poorly for him, but he will probably be the nominee.

Hillary. It will look noble and unplanned, but you can be sure the Clintons are busy lining it up even as we speculate.

It will be a real fight in 2012, and much as I dislike the Clintons, Hillary would be an improvement over the status quo.

I agree that she could challenge him especially since he basically stole the primary from her anyway by stacking in people from other states in the caucus states.  BTW the caucus should go the way of the looney bird!!

The only thing I liked about Obama was that he was a new face.  We've had 20+ years of the Clinton's and the Bush's.  I'm not ready to go back to that. 

I think Hillary is an obvious choice for the dems, but I'm not sure she can beat anyone on the GOP side.  I think the same thing about Sarah Palin.  Popular choice, but not a winning ticket. 

I agree that Obama is done.  I think he'd give it up today and go back to Chicago if his ego would let him.

Really? Who does the GOP have?

Sarah Palin?

John McCain again?

Barber?

Jeb Bush(haven't we made that mistake twice?)

 Newt?

Huckabee?

Best chance GOP has is Pawlenty(still not a runaway candidate) Romney(i would vote for him) and Thune (he will run just so he can be set up to win in 2016)

Ryan/Romney

i promise you this has happened:

Bill, damnit.....get over here

you see what the idiot is saying?

jesus honey.  how did i lose to this jerk off/

Nov 29, 2010 2:18 pm

Who is Ryan??

Nov 29, 2010 3:31 pm

Jack Ryan.  USMC vet, former Merrill Lynch FA, CIA operative...wait.  That's Jack Ryan from the Tom Clancy novels.  Sorry, my bad.  Stupid Wikipedia. 

Jack Ryan the politician is a Republican from IL.  Dartmouth, Harvard, Goldman, Chicago media man.  Worth millions.  Had to give up his senate race because of a sex scandal. 

Nov 29, 2010 5:29 pm

Hope you are kidding..

Nov 29, 2010 8:16 pm

I think he is referring to Rep. Paul Ryan from WI.

on the GOP side I would say Chris Christie/Mitch Daniels would be good choices.  If they want to pull an Obama, they could go for Marco Rubio since he will have 2 years in the senate and is a charismatic minority.  The formula seemed to work.

Nov 29, 2010 9:50 pm

Christie said he wouldn't run...

Yes, tongue firmly implanted in my cheek.

I think Obama wins unless he runs against Romney... for the same reason Clinton did in his second election.. The GOP took the position this election that "vote out the democrats and vote us in and we will get things done" which is the same slogan they used against the democrats at the same point in Clinton's first term. However nothing got done and the the republicans kept on blaming and Clinton got reelected.

I think unless the republicans make major strides(not even sure what that would be now) and run a "somebody" that people are familiar with and doesn't isolate moderates (Romney fits that bill, Huckabee doesn't) then Obama wins again..

Nov 30, 2010 12:50 pm

Ugh...I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

Christie won't run. Appartently repub tough love budget wags haven't gotten the news that Christie's ARC tunnel stunt will cost NJ 271 million. That's the bill from Uncle Sam, recieved in Trenton yesterday, due in 30 days.

I agree the Xanadu tunnel had to go. But there is a cost to high stakes buffoonery. When Uncle said if you cancel you get stuck with the bill for sunk costs. Christie said 'Eat me!" The tunnel had to go. maybe a more diplimatic way of doing it, and NJ tax payers wouldn't have gotten screwed.

That's two high profile eff ups within six months. First was Christie's insistance that an application for federal education funds be rewritten. This for no other reason than he objected to some language regarding the teachers he hates. During the rewrite some low level functionary screwed up the dates for the data shown. A simple enough mistake to correct if someone had caught it. No one did. Poof!!!! There goes $400,000,000 in fed education funds. No do overs allowed. The state's education commissioner and Christie started pointing fingers at each other. The commissioner lost his job, but at least the truth was known. There was no reason to re-write the app. The fiasco offered rare insight into Chrisites's ego.

That 700 million lost to a leader who shoots first and then aims.

On Obama, two years is a long time. Both Reagan and Clinton came back from the walking dead to win second terms. The repubs, in winning the mid terms will now have to deliver. Much can and will change.

Agree, the repubs have got no one on the bench. As for Palin, really insightful comments on the North Koreans. Who knew?

After the Wikileaks, I don't think Hillary is going anywhere...

Obama will get the support of the Dem party in a re election bid, no question about it. Heck, they let Mrs Pop Eyes continue as the speaker of the house for the Dems, albeit in a minority role. If they didn't throw Pop Eye Pelosi under the bus, they sure ain't tossn Obama aside neither.  

Nov 30, 2010 6:42 pm

Wikileaks just makes Hillary look real. I'm not a Clinton fan, but I would consider her over Palin.

It looks like both Clintons have been drinking a lot of good scotch.

Also, wikileaks puts a ton of pressure on some key "allies". If anything, the verification of so many known truths makes Obama look weak and Clintons strong. What a coincidence.

Nov 30, 2010 6:59 pm

For cryin out loud. The Bush Admin took serious grief over that idiot Plame. Here, you essentially just had a doc dump unrivaled in history, with an administration that STILL doesn't know what to do about it. The language used by the Obama admin in describing foreign leaders is straight out of Junior High School. So much for improving world relations, no the US foreign policy now is just about as bad as under Carter.  Not that I'm surprised...

The Clintons make the Obama folks look like honest folk. The Clintons were surrounded by hundreds of former associates, and wow, that all seemed to mysteriously die... Neither Bush or Obama has nearly the cadaver conundrums the Clintons have.

Let's make a deal ya'll. No more Clintons, and no more Bush family in the Presidential office. Enough already...

Nov 30, 2010 8:04 pm

Agreed. A real circus side show, perhaps this means the death of progressivism. Look on the bright side, man. I can tell the weather is affecting you.
