Will Obama be re-elected?

As a Republican, I hope not. But I’m one who is a realist who sees indications that the Republican party looks in disarray, fragmented, and does not have a ‘winning’ hand. Further, a recent CNN poll shows Obama’s approval rising from 43% back in September to 49% in December (2011). The same polls show more Americans disapproving of the way Republican leaders handling of the Nation’s problems.  Another recent Gallup poll shows that 76% of Americans want to re-elect their Republican-dominated representatives on the US Congress. These cannot be good news for people like me, but … I accept the inevitable.

PS–By contrast, the Conservative party in Canada is doing much better. In their second recent election they won by a landslide and increased their reps on Parliament. Maybe we can see what they’re doing right?

    Why do you use Einstein as your avatar? He was a pacifist, a socialist, non-religious, environmental activist, scientist… everything that Republicans hate.

    And the Republican plan to fix the economy is to fire government workers and allow companies to destroy the environment. How anyone can vote for that party is beyond me, unless their objective is to destroy America.

    Without going into all the details, we need to do some soul searching. Yes, we have work to do and fences to mend on our own backyard.

    Einstein was pacifist until when the Nazis brought hell on earth, and in fact when he came to America he admired our democratic ideals. My avatar of him, by the way, is more scientific than political. 🙂
