“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Are Obama's re-election chances waning?

From FoxNation -- Americans are growing increasingly more frustrated with President Barack Obama’s handling of the economy and only 3 in 10 say they are certain they will vote to re-elect him in 2012, a new poll finds.

I'll believe that Obama won't be our next President when I see it. Unlike no other incumbent, Obama has the media totally and completely in the tank for him. They have too much personally and professionally investing in his success to let him fail. His failure to win re-election reflects badly on them, in their minds. In my mind, they couldn't look any worse.

The GOP has to nominate a viable candidate in order to beat Obama and the media. Another McCain or Dole isn't going to beat him. The argument is that the wild-eyed nuts that Obama counted on last time aren't as excited this time. He's no longer the cool, black guy, who by voting for him, relieves their white guilt. But the GOP guy has got to excite our side too. If both voting blocks are unexcited, then I think Obama wins again because the media will tip the scales in his favor, again.
