    Here is a piece by a conservative, Ross Douthat, who understands ... IMHO.

    You know what this article *doesn't* say? It doesn't say "let's re-elect Obama, cause we think he'll do a better job than Romney, or even better than he did during his first term."

    What it does say is that Romney and the republicans need to quit wimpy-footin' around and get to it.

    While true, how does it help this nation for a President to win reelection based on the flaws of another candidate, unable to cite anything positive about his own record?

    As far as who will win, if the election were held today, I believe Obama would win a slim majority in the electoral college.

    My guess is that many voters do not see that the GOP has abandoned what they view as the flawed policies that made such a mess of this country, cost us the respect of much of the world, and put the economy into free fall.

    I believe Obama would win if the election were today. I am not sure how large or small the electoral college margin would be ... not not a huge one.

    If Obamma wins he will do what Hitler did in 1933!

    A major difference is that the billionaire Marxists in this country are backing Obamma! But no real difference between Nazism and Communism. Slavery of the people is still slavery!
