Funny you would post this. I was talking to a friend of mine who voted for Obama (I know friends don't let friends vote democrat). And he said that he will probably vote for him for a second term. I was shocked because I feel as you do that Obama is an abject failure. But he put a spin on it and convinced himself that Obama deserves reelection. He said that the guy is tough on terrorism because of Bin Laden's death. And that he's kept the crazy's in check, N. Korea, Iran, etc. And loves what he's doing in Libya.
As for the economy he said that since he inherited a mess it will take him two terms to dig out.
So there you have it. And this guy isn't the typical 20 year old Obama lacky you see on T Nation. He has a degree from a prestigious university is 45 years old and does pretty well for himself.
Go figure huh?
I've been predicting, Obama will get a second term. There are millions of people who just don't see the disaster that others see. And, which is always my final question, who beats Obama in a general election?
It will always come down to the specific candidate and the sort of campaign that he or she can run. But right now Obama is the favorite to win the White House once again, so don't kid yourself.
