Presidential Race of 2012, Obama the Favorite, Republican’s Undecided… Please make up your mind already!
Presidential Race of 2012, Obama the Favorite, Republican
Boy, this race for 2012 is starting to pick up speed. At the same time, so is President Obama. Polls show that he is going to be a tough ticket to beat. Now, I don`t know if that is because folks or the media think he is doing a good job…finally, as one of my Republican friends said the other night and then followed it up with, thanks to Speaker Boehner and the Republicans.
If you folks have your abacuses near and you have been keeping count of the Republicans` first two years under Obama and now the two years we are in right now; then please let me know if you see something I don`t. “Cause I don`t see much more action from Republicans in this start of the last two years of Obama`s four year term than I did in the previous two years. Mainly cause I think folks define action as making something happen, and not just talking about what CAN happen if you vote them in.”
So, now pollsters and pundits and the people seem to see something in our President that makes him the candidate of choice for 2012.
Of course, things could change at the drop of a hat as they do in politics. All it takes is a good scandal or a good sound bite of an episode where someone from the opposite party catches our President in a little white lie; hmmm bad choice of words.
So don`t be surprised in the next year if something surfaces that incriminates a Democrat. Incrimination is the life blood of a good campaign.
Of course, having a good candidate is an essential part of a good campaign and Republicans have started to surface some their possible 2012 runners but as of right now they are just walking slowly.
All the possible candidates I have seen, Romney, Palin, Huckabee … They all seem to lack the fire and conviction they normally have for a Presidential race. Again, maybe confidence is the key component lacking in this field of runners.
I predict another trend in this race: old candidates. I think the final field will be older. Why not, after all, if they know they don`t stand a chance then the younger Republicans can stand in the (Right) wing and wait until 2015 and run on better odds?
This just might be the race of the old guy… Candidates like Gingrich Paul, heck maybe they should pull McCain out for one last spin. Throw caution to the wind; why not if you have nothing to lose or more important, nothing to WIN?
