Despite Baxter's ludicrous statements, the idiot just might win.
How ludicrous? Trying to tie the long term hyper spending obligations of the Obama administration to a one time "bailout" of the financial industry.
Failing to admit that the anti business anti success pro government growth policies of this administration has in large part caused the current high unemployment rate.
And possibly the best, using job creation in discussing the economy (and even more stupidly, attributing job creation to Obama) instead of the unemployment rate (and ignoring that current job creation is in government).
However, the idiot might win: despite his and his parties historic loss in the last election, despite a unemployment rate over 8%, despite an annual deficit of $1.5T and counting and borrowing 40% of the federal budget with no end in sight.
Why? Weak field? It is going to be either Pawlenty, Romney or Daniels. Who ever gets the nomination will be savaged by the left supporting press (see the bogus "racism" question asked Newt last weekend).
But no, that is not why the idiot in chief is going to win.
They are seeing the error of their ways, that is why. The Paul Krugman wacko wing of the Socialist/Liberal?Democratic party has lost their voice. They realize that their stupid policies did not work, the stimulus was a failure, unemployment will not fall under current policies and they are willing to talk fiscal restraint.
The only chance the idiot has is to change course (of course without admitting it), just like he did on the war on terror, and they seem to be waking up to the possibility.
To the Republicans credit (and very much unlike the Democrats), they are willing to put country first and invite the president to look at entitlement reform and spending reductions with the only condition of no tax increases. Wow, honestly, what great guys, Cantor and Ryan are lining up to be American hero's but will unfortunately pull the "O" across the finish line.
