And Bluc and DC don't entirely get my point from above. I actually don't think Republicans will push a candidate I'll ever vote for in the elction, so I'm pretty sure I'll be voting for Obama again so save me with the partisan nonsense.
Obama in 18 months alienated much of the nation to the point that even WITH catching Bin Laden his approval ratings blow. That's pretty fucking hard to do. He couldn't help himself, and its his own damn fault that the Tea Party is what it is today, and the Republicans have the control that they have.
I mean it took 18 months. Not even! To do enough for Republicans to win the mid-terms.
Couple thoughts on this:
1. Obama election win had little to do with the Dem party... it was all him.. I mean we can all remember the complaints that the media was covering him like he was the second coming....
2. in the last 64 years since truman only twice has the Presidents party gained seats in the house Clinton 1998 & W in 2002 compared to 15 times losing seats.. Its natural for tide to swing..
3. As low as his approval ratings our the latest poll that coincided with his lowest ever ratings still had him ahead slightly over a GOP canidate.. The Tea Party is Obamas biggest assest to getting reelected as they are so extreme it has put the GOP in a situation where it will be near impossible for someone to win the nomination without having to take a huge swing back to the middle for the general election where they would need independants support
