Actually after the bailouts and HCR blunder the Democrats knows they are in deep caca, bringing the immigration reform is no the right thing
politically and possible a suicide over the last two democrats committed already.
Still they will lose congress and Obama the presidency.
I wouldn't be so sure on presidency -
I detect a whole lot of miscalculation from opponents that could add up to
an Obama win actually. The first is forgetting how well he endures at the 11th hour
and the second is trying to frame everything as bad. If the results are not as bad as painted, Obama is going to look better than he really is...
The other calculation that is being ignored is how "right" the right lets itself go...
Eventually some people are going to turn off or become frightened by it,
four years of this rhetorical firestorm might be perceived as worse than Obama's
performance. It may make the choice of pulling the other lever feel risky at a time when the country feels like it is stabilizing... If this is the
future reality, they do not appear to have any contingency being employed at the present time.
Obama has been consistently underestimated in his political prowess, the very course of rhetoric here makes me think; all kinds of false security
might be employed by opponents during election time.
The GOP will have to keep their feet on the ground, which is not their strong suit
The tendency will be to go very right, which may falsely warrant employing a Palinesque, platitude based campaign... That may be a very bad
miscalculation in so many years time.
The problem is believing ones own rhetoric too much, losing sight of what you believe and what is tangible, failing to rectify the two, another very
weak suit for the GOP...
This is all analysis BTW, I am not interjecting my feelings, or trying not to at least...
I under estimate Obama at times and I feel I have a fairly objective view of the politicing in politics. If that is the case, any less degree of
objectivity could be very detrimental.
