    I believe the GOP could walk away with the 2012 election if they can manage their own candidates. Perhaps someone will enter the race and get the support of all the party at a brokered convention.

    I cannot see Obama winning re-election in this awful economy and without the support of his base. Obama meandered around with radical leftist policies and legislation and then backed away from other leftists issues.

    That's exactly what we wanted to do to Bush, but you guys were too stupid. Now, you see the mess this Country is in. That's all we need again is another Bush. None of the Republican Candidates that are running for office can't come close to President Obama for intelligence. Wake up! Open you eyes and minds to the real facts! Don't be such a hard-nosed Republican.

    It could have been an "honest mistake", or it could be the result of
    our public education system. And they want to put billions more
    dollars in that anti-God system; why? to put in moire infidel teachers
    and professors?

    If President Obama doesn't win the election, I will agree with you that the American People are blind to the facts and are stupid. If you and others can't see what the Republican and Tea Partiers are trying to do to the American People and especially. the Middle Class, you are really blind.

    so I guess I'm blind when I look at the national debt and see that it has raised over 5 trillion dollars since Obama took office? Or when I look at the number of people on food stamps, and see that it is at it's highest rate ever, and still climbing?

    Is that supposed to make sense? Furthermore, you don't know what I was saying when W was president.

    You are missing the point on the 1%. Obama is the 1%. He is Wall St. And, yes, the most successful people in the country are easily fooled just ask any rich Democrat.

    Agreed. I think things are looking good for him. I'd give him 52/48 odds right now but that is more of a "probably" than a "yes" . I think people are just voting what they HOPE will happen and are confusing the strength of their opinion with the certainty of the outcome.

    No doubt about it. These polls are about public opinion of which the intention is to change the current numbers, I think, either in favor of or against the incumbent.

    The fat lady can't even be fat anymore thanks to the FLOTUS and her socialist agenda to tell us and our kids what we can and cannot eat. Actually, the agenda was set years ago by George Soros, but Michelle has taken her marching orders quite well.

    Do some fact checks rather than get all emotional about party favors. Republican Party is hurting that is a fact. It is almost bankrupt in California. I am and Independent so not hung up on either lousy brand. The point is the GOP shoots themselves in the foot by being the party of NO Little vision but plenty of swagger and denouncing Dems without a big plan to make things better. They have done little to get a minority votes so we shall see where the pieces land. Regardless of who wins things are not getting better nor will they if both idiot parties don't ring in the spending

    Every citizen should demand that Congress pass no more legislation that is beyond the scope of their power, as granted by our Constitution.

    Our federal government has far exceeded its constitutional powers, and it is time to reign them in, if it is not already too late.

    Our Constitution created a very limited federal government with most of the governing power left in the hands of the states.

    James Madison, considered the Father of the Constitution, stated the following::

    "The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation and foreign commerce."

    Although our constitution only granted the federal government limited powers, they seem to believe they can do anything they wish, which is not true.

    Madison also had this to say about welfare: “With respect to the words general welfare, I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.”

    Maybe the reason the Republicians are saying NO, is because even though they are also guilty of promoting big government, they have had enough of the fedral government exceeding its constitutional power.

    The day the Democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actuallyJanuary 3rd 2007,the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress.

    The Democratic Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.

    For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this:

    January 3rd, 2007, the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress:
    The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
    The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
    The Unemployment rate was 4.6%
    George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB CREATION!Remember that day...

    January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.
    The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy?
    BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!

    THANK YOU DEMOCRATS (especially Barney) for taking us from 13,000 DOW, 3.5 GDP and 4.6% Unemployment...to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!

    (BTW: Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie -starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy). Barneyblocked it and called it a "Chicken Little Philosophy" (and the sky did fall!)

    And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? OBAMA

    And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie?
    OBAMA and the Democrat Congress, especially BARNEY!!!! So when someone tries to blame Bush...

    REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007.... THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!"
    Bush may have been in the car but the Democrats were in charge of the gas pedal and steering wheel they were driving the economy into the ditch.

    Budgets do not come from the White House.. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democratic Party. Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 & 2011.
    In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.

    For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budget.
    And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009. Let's remember what the deficits looked like during that period:

    If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.

    If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.
    In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is "I inherited a deficit that I voted for, and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th."
