    When a president breaks his promises and presides over economic and fiscal disaster...........he loses his re-election.

    Cooooooooooold HARD FACTS

    They'll be adding to this list next Wednesday.

    But you liberals, take courage. Obama is eligible to run again in 2016 so far.

    I hope Liar-in Chief will run in 2016, maybe this time we'll get to see his college transcripts and confirm what a dunce he really is.

    Keep padding that post count, jopatmc. You won't have much longer to do so.

    That's pretty good reverse psychology there, ROXTIA. I like it.




    But it won't work. I'll be posting next Wednesday. That is, if I want to.

    So what will you have to say after the President is re-elected?

    Inquiring minds want to know!

    jopatmc, I'm not an Obama supporter. But dude...... He's going to win. And it's not going to be close.

    If it comes down to one state, its close. He will not have the blow out like he did against McCain.

    Agree it won't be a blowout like in 2008. I remember in 2008 Fox News and their supporters honestly thought Mccain was going to win. They were shocked when he got blown out. smh

    It doesn't look like it will come down to one state. It won't be like McCain, he won't flip any red states.

    One thing you're missing about all those candidates:

    Blah.

    Reagan, Clinton, W Bush, Obama? Likeable.

    Whether that's a good thing or not, that's how it is.

    Plus, you forgot about Ross Perot in 1992.

    Carter? That was LARGELY due to the hostage crisis and Reagan's likeability. Economy didn't matter as much to people at that point.

    Ford? People really held the pardon of Nixon against him- really. And he was always seen, unfortunately, as somewhat of an awkward President.


    The only times when a bad economy truly did in an incumbent in the 20th century was Hoover and, slightly, HW Bush.
