Obama advisers expect to incorporate the reelection campaign around March and think the Tea Party ultimately will reelect him by pulling
Republican nominee to the right. They doubt Sarah Palin will run, figure Mitt Romney can’t get nomination because of his Massachusetts health care
program and guess that Obama may end up running against Mike Huckabee.
As I have previously thought as well, Sarah Palin enjoys being on FOX and going on book tours and speaking at Conservative events, this gives her lots
of money. Why would she quit a very successful career which earns her millions and keeps her from being in constant negative media spotlight for a job
that requires her to be under severe pressure and take hard hits by the media. She couldn't handle being governor of a state with just 700,000 people
and the media spotlight after her VP attempt, so why would she ever try president? She is more effective for Republicans anyway if she remains out of
office and just spewing the talking points.
Mitt Romney will be facing a group of extremely hard-right candidates all clawing over each other to prove who's crazier and Mitt Romney will be
slammed for his health care bill in Massachusetts. Don't think for a minute that people like Gingrich won't compare it to 'ObamaCare'. He won't
get a Tea Party endorsement, won't get the evangelical vote and won't get the very critical southern and Midwestern states. He won't be able to win
That leaves two people and one of them has a past that will surely be brought up by the other. Gingrich will be destroyed because of his personal life
by the Baptist preacher Mike Huckabee, he will use everything in the arsenal to drive away family values voters from Gingrich. This will leave
Huckabee to take the nomination with very little hurdles in his way.
His biggest problem will be gaining corporate contributors since he is a more populist candidate than an business candidate. Obama will retake big
business unless Huckabee can move more towards business orientation, which I highly doubt will happen. This would lead to Obama having to overcome the
label of the Big-Labor and Big-Business candidate against the Populist Preacher.
If I am correct then 2012 will be a battle between Huckabee and Obama which will be very severe and will sharply divide people. On one hand they will
think Obama is the Wall Street candidate and too secular for America and on the other they will think Huckabee is the Church candidate and too
fundamentalist. 2012 would be a very fun campaign season to watch IMO.
