He'll win re-election, and it'll be an easy one since all the true heavy-hitters on the Republican side are sitting this election out and waiting for 2016. I mean, I've never seen such a cotterie of mentally defective idiots that are the Republican presidential candidates.
I would think a primary challenger might only strengthen his chances...spurring on those who voted for him in '08 as his/her sole political gesture in life to make sure he's not simply a one-term hack mentioned with the likes of Bush elder and Hoover, etc. Not one of my employees had ever voted before 3 years ago, and claim they won't again...but the combination of the Bush debacle and potential history being made had them carpooling everyone in droves. Once the word gets out more to the non-cable news watching public that so avidly supported him, that its on again I are a Bush over Kerry type victory for B.O. over Romney. The GOP of course only losing as a future candidate the worst frontrunner in history.
Sonic, which contenders are you thinking...Christie??? Ryan??? Thune??? Ugh
I actually quite like Huntsman....likely due to the way the party lines are currently structured he fits absolutely nowhere and therefore will be seen as a failure...likely striking quite a good balance in ideology.
