If I had a dollar for every time I bet a Republican friend that President Obama was going to win the 2012 election, I wouldn't be rich but I could sure go to a real nice restaurant for dinner. I have heard every reason why President Obama was not going to win. I am sticking to my guns. President Obama is going to be re-elected.
First, all of the Republican candidates have serious flaws. Former Massachusetts Governor Romney has had such a bad reputation as a flip flopper that during the last election [COLOR=blue ! important]cycle[/COLOR] attendees at the CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conferece) were giving out thin, colored flip flops with his various conflicting positions written on them. They were so colorful that I made a mobile out of them.

Rick Perry comes off to the Millenial generation as a conservative who is out of touch because of his stance on a variety of social issues.
Herman Cain is the most likeable and the candidate most Republicans would like to have dinner with but his lack of government experience will trip him up.
Ron Paul will do well but not enough to get himself to the top of the ticket.
And Newt Gingrich, the smartest of all the [COLOR=blue ! important]Republicans[/COLOR], is going to have to raise a lot more money to get the organization he needs to snag the party's nomination.
This is going to be my fifth presdiental campaign and one thing I have learned is that people elect the candidate that they trust and behaves in a way they can relate to. President Obama is just that person...

The same things were said about Jimmy Carter in 1979-80.

Commentary: October 30, 2011
Obama's Coming Revolution....
...
My, how things have changed; and it didn't take long. Obama was hailed as a healing president, promising peace and harmony. What we have seen, however, is a president distinctively divisive on racial issues, and instigating class warfare. His actions are a prescription for a violent revolution. Let us look back...Shortly after Obama took office there was Obama's reaction to the incident involving Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. and the Cambridge Police Department: "President Obama said that police in Cambridge, Massachusetts, 'acted stupidly' in arresting a prominent black Harvard professor last week after a confrontation at the man's home." He never should have stuck his nose into this. And if he were going to say something, he should have understood the situation prior to butting in. Instead, he routinely took the professor's side, showing his real and sincere bias, and managing to anger folks on both sides of the debate.

More recently the POTUS told a group of Hispanics, "And if Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, we're gonna punish our enemies and we're gonna reward our friends..." Punish? Enemies? Not exactly harmonious, peace inspiring words.

Then in his speech before the Congressional Black Caucus he said, "I expect all of you to march with me and press on. Take off your bedroom slippers, put on your marching shoes."

And let's not forget the work of Eric Holder when his Justice Department went easy in a Philadelphia voting rights case against members of the New Black Panther Party because they are African American.

This is our post racial president.

And then there's the class warfare.

In 2008, then-candidate Obama's remarks in his interview with Charles Gibson should have been a clue. When Gibson pointed out that recently when tax rates were increased government revenues decreased and when tax rates decreased revenues increased, Obama replied "Well, Charlie, what I've said is that I would look at raising the capital gains tax for purposes of fairness." He has accusingly said ad nauseam that wealthy Americans should pay their "fair share," which means that no matter how much they are paying, they should pay more.

Mr. Obama's repetitive attacks on the wealthy have led to growing divisions between them and the less fortunate, such as the current Occupy Wall Street protestors who "want to see the rich pay a fair share of their profits in wages, wealth and income in taxes..." When asked about the protestors, Obama replied: ""I think it expresses the frustrations that the American people feel."

Usage of words such as greed, selfish, and mean, while always a part of the liberal description of Republicans, has escalated more in recent years.

While most pundits seem to think of this as just another chapter in American politics, albeit somewhat intense, I'm less blase about it. I see this as a potential beginning of serious violence in our streets and neighborhoods. At worst, problems could escalate to a point requiring national action, possibly a declaration of a state of emergency with military involvement. Is it possible we could have martial law imposed on us around next November, and, coincidentally, have the elections postponed? Not likely, but possible.

More certain, however, is the extended racial and class tension that will exist for decades. While I never expected racism to go away completely, racial harmony in this country has been gaining momentum and is, essentially, more of a problem to the left wing media and certain race baiting politicos than to folks on the ground. I'm afraid the actions of this administration may reverse the positive course that people of all races have worked so hard to establish. Barack Obama has done his best to delay racial harmony.

And class warfare? The vociferous screams from the left have prompted normally silent, tax paying Americans to denigrate those who don't pay taxes, adding their voices to the argument and elevating hostilities.

I don't generally subscribe to conspiracy theories, and I'm not postulating such right now. However, you have to wonder, given Rahm Emanuel's remarks at the beginning of Obama's administration: "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." Do what? Fully implement socialism? Create a fascist left country? Simply elevate the problems with our economy and instigate tension between the people, and you have the perfect storm for such a scenario. Even if this isn't being done by design, it could happen anyway.

This is one reason why so many on the right believe it is absolutely critical that we remove Mr. Obama from office in 2012. A GOP president will certainly stir up anxiety on the left, and the cries of foul play that existed during George Bush's administration will resume.

Certainly a Republican will not be able to do much to mend recent wounds. But the GOP is never as hostile in its criticism of the left, and the dissention will slow down and possibly stop. Maybe after a few years and if the economy improves progress in this area will again move forward.

And yes, while there are not many high profile, moderate Dems, a more moderate and sensible Democrat could lessen the problem as well. However, it is highly unlikely that any Democrat, even Hillary, will challenge Obama for the Democratic nomination. And if one did, of course, additional hostilities would generate from that.

Thanks to Barack Obama, with help from the media and left wing pundits, hostility in America is a high as I can recall, and close to a breaking point. With regard to this situation, the 2012 election represent a break even or lose situation. If Obama wins, we lose. If any Republican wins, we break even. Lets face facts, we are engaged in a crap shoot... :

I feel that the inflamatory rhetoric spewed by Obama and his cadre will cause violent reactions in the streets and neighborhoods of America causing the need for federal intervention even military action. But the suspension of elections and/or imposing martial law is unlikely but possible. Well, some Democrats in congress have already called for suspension of the constitution. Obama and his Democrat supporters repeatedly refer to the opposition, meaning us, as the enemy. Unions leaders want to take us out and Obama and his Democrats applaud the idea. Democrat supporters are "occuping" locations in the country that are seen as enemy territory. What more evidence does one need to draw the conclusion that the class warfare incited by this administration is well on its way? I have written many times that Democrats will take any action they feel necessay to maintain their power. They will not just pack their bags and go home. We are in a war. It is not a war of ideas it is a war for power and control. The rhetoric will continue and get far more inflamatory. As Democrats and their socialist allies feel more threatened or see their power ebbing they will become more desparate. Violence has already erupted in many gatherings around the country. Much more to come and next summer will be something to behold. Bank on it!

One bright light at the end of the tunnel is this...Large segments of the non urban American populace are clear headed and REMARKABLY capable! Any "revolution" these idiots might conjure will surely consume them, politically and existentially. The Obama "army" hasn't a chance in HELL against their real foe!...The REAL American Patriots, We The People!

As always, be prepared. Keep your powder dry!

At this point I agree with LGriffin because IMO the Repub candidates have been less than impressive. The fact that they're "not Obama" doesn't necessarily guarantee votes from moderates and independants. Having said that a lot can change in a little time. A strong or noteworthy debate between Obama and the GOP nominee could change everything.

I disagree....independents have and will continue to desert Obama, and that's the key to the election. The hardcore liberals will continue to drink the Kool-Aid no matter what, but the curtain has been pulled back with Obama, and instead of the Great & Powerful Oz, the independents have seen someone who is in over his head at best, or a hardcore socialist at worst.

Anyone who doesn't like the way things are going and still votes for him in 2012 deserves what they get. He is not going to change and suddenly become an amazing president if he wins a second term and I don't think that most moderates and independents are stupid enough to think that he will. The liberals are another story. Nothing is obama's fault. First all our problems were Bush's fault, now it's congress's fault that nothing has been fixed. The liberals will never wake up and realize that if obama were a true leader; then, he would own the problems we face and put all his energy into turning things around. Instead of doing that, he seems hell bent on making things worse. moderates and independents are starting to wake up and recognize that and will hopefully have enough common sense to vote for the lesser of the two evils and in unless the republicans nominate a complete lunatic that will be whoever their nominee is. Remember the definition of insanity is doing the same thing expecting different results.
