Light at the End of the Tunnel

With a 70% approval rating, Obama is enjoying a fantastic honeymoon.  To some extent, Obama has earned his approval.  Obama is smart, capable, and he occasionally has a good idea.  But he's not invincible.  And he can't be all things to all people.  In his first week as president, we've seen that he can be petty, he can loose his cool, he can make stupid comments, and he can make stupid decisions.  

At some point the irrational exuberance will simmer down.  The Obama bubble will burst.  

Conservatives need to peel away about 6% of Obama's 2008 voters in order to win in 2012.  Do three out of every fifty Obama voters have enough sense to vote for someone else in 2012?  I think so.  Let's change some minds.


Obama is the greatest thing in the whole world.

I'm in.

If the ballot has Obama pitted against "someone else", then I will campain hard for "someone else". IF a third party candidate named "anybody but him" were to run, this might split our vote. That could be a problem. No more dang mavericks!
