    If I can't turn the economy around in my first three years, I'll be a one term president.

    It isn't when but "if" he gets re-elected. There are many signs pointing towards a disaster for the Democrats. My guess is that he'll dump his vice president and ask Hillary to take Biden's place.

    Question is whether Romney will think outside the box and select a running mate that will excite independents.

    Over his head? I don't think so! Never in the past, present, or future will he even like this country.

    Yes there's more challenging days for Obama when he gets re-elected. with a Koch Brother's RINO GOP do nothing Congress. Just why is Obama on defensive. Because the RNC is holding up OWS. When do public access tickets go on sale, if at all?. You can't buy a ticket to the Republican National Convention, says James Davis, spokesman for the Committee on Arrangements. People can attend convention events as delegates or as volunteers. But only delegates, sent by the Republican party in their home states, are guaranteed entry into the actual convention hall. Your chance to get a delegate slot has passed so your last option for participating in the RNC is to join the ranks of the 7,500 volunteers the local RNC Host Committee is still trying to assemble.

    I wonder if the Mrs. First Lady will make any comments at how rotten the U.S. of A is now that it was the first time almost 4 years ago that she was proud to be an American. This President never had the experience, expertise, leadership, working across party-lines or anything else to qualify him as President. Mrs. Clinton, even though I don't agree with much of anything she has done, was a better qualified candidate than this President. I can still see his face as he goes to the back room with her and she comes out to say she was withdrawing from being a Presidential candidate. I can see President Obama and Vice-President Biden when Biden used some raunchy language on camera as walking back to their offices. The Peter principle happened before the election in 2008 but his HOPE and CHANGE making his party allegiance bring in plenty of party organizers to get voters that wanted free-lunches, handouts, entitlements and everything else he promised those that voted for him. Put them on busses to get them to the polls and have free pizza and drinks. Those people hopefully have seen reality now.

    As Bill Clinton intimated, Mr. Obama is in over his head. Good community organizer, unqualified POTUS. The only re-election strategy that he can use is focusing on everything except his own record: bashing private equity funds (unless they contribute to his campaign) only to have Clinton and other Democrats defend them, unfunded medical care, failure to create a job growth environment, corruption in the White House, the ill advised endorsement of an anarchist, anti-Semitic Occupy Wall Street movement, an Attorney General who is adrift in deception and bad judgement, ignoring the CBO and their prediction of a Greece-style collapse, and the list goes on.

    When the majority of Americans believe they can take by force what other Americans worked for, those who worked will decide it does no good for them to continue to work and our entire economic system will collapse under mountains of debt! Perhaps the results of the Wisconsin recall election shows that at least in Wisconsin, there are fewer takers than there are producers left, something that is obviously surprising to liberals. This election in November is the last exit off the Obama highway to Europe!

    "The looming Supreme Court decision on the health care law has some Democrats insisting the White House and the party did a terrible job selling the overhaul to the American people." - The progressives keep argueing that if people would just understand Obamacare they would love it. President Obama has given over 100 speeches on Obamacare, it never seems to occur to progressives that we do understand it, and we don't like it.

    The way the law is written most of the policy details have yet to be dtermined, and they will be written by government bureaucrats like Kathleen Sebelius, she of "forcing the Catholic Church to violate its precepts" fame.

    The primary "crises" that progressives used to force this law through was escalating medical costs, despite all of the massive changes the law brings one thing it will not do is reduce medical costs.

    The Nazi death camps are infamous for the many jews they killed, and rightly so, but another group killed were the infirm "uselss bread gobblers". They were put there due to the costs they imposed on the government provided health care. Could that happen here? Not immediately certainly, but in time? Who knows?

    The "Peter Principle" says people will eventually be promoted beyond their level of ability. Obama is a classical example. Obama is still trying to figure out whether they were "Polish death camps" or Nazi concentration camps.

    Where was his teleprompter when he needed it the most?
