I'll be honest, I didn't think Obama had much of a chance to get elected when I first saw him. I suspected that the South wasn't ready for a black president, and when he ran on the whole "Change We Can Belive In," "Yes we Can" thing, I thought he was setting the bar way too high.
Having watched him since, he's doing just fine, but unemployment is still at 9%, he's pissed a bunch of people off over health care, he's running up the debt (which is something I HATE HATE HATE), and a lot of people are saying the economy "could do better."
So what's happening with the Republicans? Newt Gingrich is loosing staff left and right (and isn't he a busted flush anyway over the whole Lewinsky thing -no one came out of that smelling fruity), Michelle Backmann or Sarah Palin (I mean pulease), Tim Pawlenty (a man who could only win re-election as governor of his HOME STATE by 1%)), Mitt Romney (Mr. Massachussets flipflopper), or Jon Hunstman (an Obama apointee). Isn't that a motley bunch?
