Should Obama run in 2012?
 A slight majority says no


Democratic voters are closely divided over whether Obama should be challenged within the party in 2012,
a Whore AP Poll finds.

That glum assessment carries over into the nation at large, which is similarly divided over whether Obama should be a one-term president.

A real Democratic challenge to Obama seems unlikely at this stage and his re-election bid is a long way off.
But the findings underscore how disenchanted his party has grown heading into the congressional elections Tuesday.

The poll says 51 percent say he deserves to be defeated in November 2012 while 47 percent support his re-election — essentially a tie.
Among Democrats, 47 percent say Obama should be challenged for the 2012 nomination and 51 percent say he should not be opposed.

Political operatives and polling experts caution that Obama's poll standings say more about people's frustrations today with the economy
and other conditions than they do about his re-election prospects. With the next presidential election two years away — an eon in politics
 — the public's view of Obama could improve if the economy revives or if he outmaneuvers Republicans on Capitol Hill or in the presidential campaign.

"Democrats currently disappointed with Obama will likely be less disappointed if he spends the next two years fighting a GOP Congress"
should Republicans do well on Election Day, said Charles Franklin, a University of Wisconsin political science professor.

Does anybody reading this think Obama will suddenly morph into a fighter?

Even so, the poll illustrates how Obama's reputation has frayed since 2008. It suggests lingering bad feelings from Democrats'
bitter primary fight, when he and Clinton — now his secretary of state — roughly split the popular vote. Political professionals
of both parties said the findings are a warning for the president, whose formal re-election effort is expected to begin stirring next year.

I think that's 100% horseshit.
If Obama was coming to work and doing his job, why would people want Hillary in there, instead?

<>If your quarterback is throwing touchdowns, who wants the second-string quarterback to replace him? 
Nobody, that's who.

Obama has several problems but maybe Number One is his inability to learn.
He keeps making the same mistakes, over and over and over again.
