Incredibly inept & stupid GOP field guarantees Obama’s re-election
October 31, 2011 by William K. Wolfrum
Eighteen months ago, I wrote that President Barack Obama would win a landslide re-election in 2012. It’s time to double-down on that prediction. Come Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012, Obama will have another 400 electoral votes and four more years of the presidency on his hands. It’s a sure thing.
While I admit the high unemployment numbers should be enough to trouble any incumbent, I refer back to my key factor for why Obama will win re-election: “All the GOP has to run against him are Republicans.”
My friends, with roughly one year to go until the general election, the GOP has amassed what can only be called the worst group of presidential candidates in the history of civilization. By far. This is going back to hunter-gatherer civilizations, even.
I’m not exaggerating here. People, HERMAN CAIN is the current GOP front-runner. Sure, he can come off as likable, but that view of him is changing rapidly. Add to that he has no grasp of any policy issues, whether foreign or domestic. None. He can’t even repeat simple GOP talking points without screwing it up. And honestly, I’ve seen no reason to believe Cain even wants to be President. I think he wants to sell some books, massage his own ego and then exit stage right once things start getting real. And things are getting real.
By all intents and purposes, Mitt Romney should be the GOP nominee. But it’s getting harder and harder to see him pull it off. And even if he does, he is so despised among the current conservative movement, that he has no shot in a head-to-head match-up. And for good reason. Romney has – almost without exception – proved to be a man with no real convictions on any issue. He’s pretty, but so is Megan Fox, and everyone’s tired of her acting, as well.
Rick Perry is stupendously out of his depth and in full collapse mode.
Newt Gingrich is an angry, serial adulterer.
Michelle Bachmann, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum are ideologues that are just minutes away from dropping out of the race altogether.
Jon Huntsman doesn’t even deserved to be mentioned here, such is his lack of visibility and support.
Seriously, try and imagine any one of the above-mentioned candidates in a debate with Obama. It will be wholesale slaughter. Because while Obama has been dinged up during the past four years, his support is still at reasonable historical levels to indicate re-election anyway. Add to that the fact that the GOP will offer him up a completely unelectable candidate, and you have yourself a sure thing.
The Obama Re-election Extravaganza has yet to be fully unveiled. And once it is, look for him to enjoy 20-30 percent leads over whoever the GOP offers up for sacrifice. Because Obama will most certainly do his part to win re-election.
And the GOP candidate – whoever it is – will do their part to guarantee four more years of Obama, as well. Because simply put, there has never been a stupider, phonier or more ridiculous field of candidates than what the GOP is now offering.
