Can Obama win?

The numbers aren't looking good:
For the first time, the poll found that a majority of adults, 52 percent, said Obama should be voted out of office while 43 percent said he deserves another term. The numbers mark a reversal since last May, when 53 percent said Obama should be re-elected while 43 percent said he didn't deserve four more years.

Obama's overall job approval stands at a new low: 44 percent approve while 54 percent disapprove. The president's standing among independents is worse: 38 percent approve while 59 percent disapprove.
With numbers like these, Obama can't win and the Dems know it.

Right now, the best they can hope for is not a Democratic win but a Republican loss. The conservative base has fallen out of love with the various Republican candidates; the general electorate will probably do the sighing eye-roll when the eventual nominee is announced.

To independent voters, only Romney is likely to seem non-annoying, or at least not-so-very-frightening. That's why the party's leadership wants to clear everyone else out of the way. But the rank-n-filers -- who know full well that Romney is all make-up and no face -- insist on someone else.

Unless and until a suitable "someone else" shows up, the Dems are going to think that they have a chance. Obama can't win, but maybe Gingrinch will lose; maybe the public will hate the Republican candidates even more than they hate Obama. So goes the Democratic thinking.

The Republicans' short-term disarray gives them a long-run advantage. If the GOP could field another Reagan -- a genuinely popular leader who stands out from the rest of the crowd -- the Dems would understand that they have no choice but to switch horses.

I still dream of a new horse. Hillary may be too tainted by her service with Obama. Wesley Clark...?
Elizabeth Warren? Wes Clark? Bernie Sanders? Slim pickings, isn't it?
Hillary, tainted but not spoiled.
Right of Center, or just working with what was handed him, Bill Clinton will be remembered as a good Democratic president. The O-bots would like for you to forget that it was cowardly or on-the-take Democrat congress members that gave veto proof majorities to much of the republican sponsored legislation back in the 1990's.

I think it's too late for Hillary to save the party if only because she will be attacked unmercifully by the same Obama toadies and shills in the print and broadcast media as during the 2008 primaries.

Even if there is another candidate who could step in most of the Dem elite won't have it. They're too vested in Obama to admit they FUBARed the Democratic party in 2008 by installing Obama over the wishes of the voters.

Obama, Pelosi and Reid will go down in infamy for what they did. This was supposed to be an era of Democratic ascendancy, but they managed to hand it back to the republicans.

In an interview with BBC Radio, former British military Captain James Blunt discussed the details of how, during the height of the NATO occupation of Kosovo, he was ordered by US General Wesley Clark to attack 200 Russian soldiers and “destroy” them.

“I was given the direct command to overpower the 200 or so Russians who were there. I was the lead officer, with my troop of men behind us… The soldiers directly behind me were from the Parachute Regiment so they’re obviously game for a fight,” Blunt recalled.

Blunt had been ordered to occupy the Pristina airport, but 200 Russian soldiers had arrived on site before him, so he radioed on for instructions. It was at this point that General Clark, then the Supreme Allied Commander for NATO, ordered Blunt to “destroy” the Russian soldiers and take the airport for NATO.
Hillary, Wesley Clark or Feingold!!!
David Petraeus has much more personal ambition and even stronger Wall Street/Likud Party connections than Wesley Clark, Joseph.

I'm betting my money on Petraeus for America's first, popularly acclaimed, military dictator.
