No one is gonna touch Barack Hussein Obama in 2012. GOP should just concede now and allow Barack Hussein Obama to get on with his work of healing the deep wounds of The Decider's administration.

That's a rather big claim to make. There are obviously a lot of people who don't like Obama, and would never vote for him. Elections are not won or lost by the die hard supporters of either party though. There are a lot of people who voted for him last time who may have become quite disappointed in the interim. Opinion polls don't look too flash. There's a lot that could still happen between now and the election anyway. I wouldn't be putting my money on anyone right now, even if I liked any particular candidate. I think it would be reckless at this point to make any predictions. Last election, this far out, who would have predicted an Obama-McCain head-to-head? Who would have predicted Obama as the winner? There were people who thought the Democrats were obviously going to win, just because they thought Bush sucked and had done so much damage. Then there were people who thought that if Hillary got it (and she was the likely candidate), they were definitely going to lose. In other words, no one really had any idea.

Why should they fold up their tents... Democrats will do their best to help the GOP win and my best guess is they will win and Obama will be gone. Too many crazy and uneducated people over there. (Not trying to flame but seriously... with all the stuff the GOP can say and pull off and still be supported no democrats stand a chance. Long live FOX)

Since we seem to be on the verge of crashing the financial system, I wouldn't want to be either the Democrats or Republicans.

Here's my vote for a pox on both their houses.

As my Lord and Saviour, Bill Maher so succinctly put it last week, "Wanna bet?"

Even Odds. I"ll take Barack Hussein Obama and you can take everyone else.

Love the nod to the bard there, but I still have to say:

This is a surer thing than Manny Pacquiao v Sugar Watshislongshot.

I would bet on it because I am sure enough but I do not want to be the one betting on something bad happening...

Why do you think this is such a certainty?

Like I alluded to, as I was watching Real Time last week, Bill put it to the right wing guest in terms of a wager and it shut him right up. In my experience, nothing shuts up an ass talker like a wager. Fox News and its flobber fans can either put up or shut up. Furthermore, it is such a foregone conclusion in my mind, that the title of this thread is directed at the right wing among us, that realizing this, they should step out of the way and give Barack Hussein Obama free rein to either sink or swim. Concentrate on 2016.

Of course, with the straw man dissenting of the right removed, I believe Barack Hussein Obama will guide America back to prosperity. And Fox News will become redundant.

Far more likely than a 14.0 shaker.

You wont get those odds from the bookies. US Presidential Election Winner Betting Odds

Obama is currently at 2/5 , which is the same for the Democrats to win and for now are clear favorites. Odds have been shortening over the past few months, I guess killing OBL and releasing his birth certificate helped. But way to early to say its all over yet.

No, no, it will be much more fun to watch a Grinch-Palin ticket floundering and foundering.
