Take Heart Conservatives, remember that each day brings us closer to the end of the Obama Administration.
I predict that Barack Obama will be a one-term president. I base that on a lot more than just because he's the re-incarnation of the Carter Administration. He has history working against him as well. The fact is that our country is nearly 233 years old and the last three Presidents who served two terms consecutively were Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Monroe. That's right folks, the last time there were three 2-term presidents in a row was 1801-1825, nearly 200 years ago.
That's not an end all by any means...he's already broken another historical Presidential record.
What will truely doom him is the same force that delivered him into office. The Economy. It's easy to convince people that the economy sucks when it's great. It's done by creating the impression in people's minds that while their situation may be ok, everyone else is suffering. We saw that successfully done by the media and Democrats these last eight years.
It's a completely different animal to convince people that a sucky economy is great. Class warfare has ensured that "You may be suffering but everyone else is improving..." will not be a winning argument.
After the last two years of hearing Obama promise that he'll fix it instantly, his golden tongue will not be able to save him when he fails to deliver and he will fail. Obama's policies will not fix the economy. It will in fact make it worse. And people vote their pocketbooks.
One caveat...it does matter whom his 2012 opponent is however. If the Republicans run another Democrat-lite like McCain was or a token opposition like Dole, then Obama will break another historical record. Hopefully though after they take another thrashing in the 2010 midterms the GOP leadership will finally get it through their thick skulls that Bi-partisanship in Washington is defined as: Liberals win, Conservatives lose.
