If this president has done so poorly, why is there such a close race? This many people in the corner of the president isn't demonstrative of someone who has done a poor job -- something has been done right. What is it?

The fact Demmies still get elected at all is indicative of the # who've been bought off & expect to get goodies from them.

It is indicative of people who do not want to admit that they were taken for suckers four years ago, as well as people who judge the man on the color of his skin rather than on his record as president. Also illiterate morons like the 0bamaphone woman who will vote for whoever promises them the most free stuff.

And I don't think it will be a close race. Think about it: How many people that voted for McCain will now vote for Obama? None. How many that voted for Obama will now vote for Romney? Lots.
How many that voted for Obama will not vote at all, the victim of a one time trick by the Democrats? Lots. Obama won in 2008 by what, 6 or 7 points? I look for a landslide for Romney.
