Since about the time that Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential, liberals have been wringing their hands out of concern that Barack Obama would not win re-election. And you really can't blame them — they've been conditioned to worry about everything except actual the important stuff like pyromaniacal illegal aliens and the ever-encroaching specter of socialism.
Now Karl Rove has just revealed — via Rupert Murdoch's Rupert Murdoch-ized Wall Street Journal — that he used his super secret special brand of math to figure out that Barack Obama will not win a second term.
That should really make a lot of liberals feel a lot better about their chances in 2012, because Hahahahahahaha Karl Rove!
President Barack Obama is likely to be defeated in 2012. The reason is that he faces four serious threats. The economy is very weak and unlikely to experience a robust recovery by Election Day. Key voter groups have soured on him. He's defending unpopular policies. And he's made bad strategic decisions…
Mr. Obama has made a strategic blunder. While he needs to raise money and organize, he decided to be a candidate this year rather than president. He has thus unnecessarily abandoned one of incumbency's great strengths, which is the opportunity to govern and distance himself from partisan politics until next spring. Instead, Team Obama has attacked potential GOP opponents and slandered Republican proposals with abandon. This is not what the public is looking for from the former apostle of hope and change.
Oh, man! I sure hope President Obama is taking heed to all this FREE! advice he's getting from this clearly non-partisan expert on political strategy and ethics.
"Hmmmm… Karl Rove recommends I not campaign for re-election. We'd better take this excellent advice under serious advisement." — Barack Obama (probably)
I'll bet you a lot of Republicans are really mad at Rove right now for giving the game away.
