Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha . . .

You're delusional. It's your asshole buddies in the Republican Party who have put this nation in the toilet, and have since done everything they could to obstruct the business of attempting to put Humpty Dumpty together again.

@Setanta,
I should have added that this is the opinion of Ed Rollins - but in your hurry to declare anyone you disagree with "delusional" you missed your chance at an edit. Perhaps you think you're a better political consultant than he is? Let's hear your qualifications and predictions track record - for a change Smile

@Setanta,
LOL!

Typical liberal, you have your facts completely reversed and want to put the blame others.

@H2O MAN,
Of course he does, and he will realize it himself if he thinks about it for a moment. Holding breath not advisable.

As i said before, you're delusional. Eight years of the Shrub trashing the economy and you trot out some fantasy spiel about Obama harming the country. The right-wingnuts still claim that tax cuts will help the economy, and you want Sarah "I can see Russia from my house" Palin at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. People like you will happily rant while the country goes straight to hell, and blame a fantasy crew of alleged socialists, all the while supporting the band of theives who have been screwing you without a condom for years on end.

@High Seas,
I agree to a point, but you have to put them in there place once in a while, otherwise their whining gets uncontrollable.

I guess Palin would win, but I don't want her running for president in 2012. I have nothing against her - she is awesome, but the hate directed at her from the left would hurt our politics.

I think we need to run less of a high profile target, win the election and let Obama leave the white house with his dignity intact.

well he'd still have the shame of having been a politician in the first place, if he (or anyone) wanted dignity they would have stayed out of politics

Good point, but somebody has to step-up and serve.

@Butrflynet,
Butrflynet, I won't insult you by pretending to even know about any of info cited in the excerpt or in your post. I have never been involved in any kind of political organizing, grass roots or otherwise.

Are you saying that once Obama got in he abandoned his grass roots people but took their hard work and handed it over to DNC people who work inside Washington on a full time basis? Maybe your right, he would be better off going away from the established Dem's in Washington and back to his grass roots organizational people. However, I can understand him wanting to get established people when it comes to foreign affairs and military matters as long as those established people are not a bunch of republican light hawks.

Sometimes I wonder if people say post such absolute statements around here just to get someone like me to go to google.

Poll: Six in 10 Rule Out Palin in 2012

. Who is Ed Rollins and has he been keeping up the polling done on a possible match up between Obama and Palin?

Ed Rollins is a Republican political consultant; I've never known him to be wrong, which doesn't mean he might not be in this case, since a Palin-Obama matchup is hypothetical right now. Btw, "matchup" refers to actual vote-counting, not exit polls, or even voting intentions as expressed to pollsters - as is the case with the poll you cite. The Obama interval's "achievements" so far are overall negative - but, as Rollins says "You can fool all the people all the time if the advertising budget is big enough." Whence my conclusion: the Obama interval better be kept to 4 years.

Humph Well, I guess they ought to know given the lead up to the Iraq war after 9/11.

In any case, Ed Rollings is wrong. You know people ought to be able to tell a difference between an opinion based on consideration of the facts and just political wishful thinking.

Some interesting commentary here. I don't yet have an opinion of what will materialize in the coming election, though I believe the Republicans have a good chance of defeating Obama if they handle the next term in Congress well and unite behind a strong candidate.

Ed Rollins is an experienced and generally relaible political commentator. It is worth remembering that he either ran or was a principal figure in Ross Perot's losing campaign for a second term in a three way contest between Bush I, Perot and Clinton in which no candidate got a majority. (In a speech later I heard Rollins opine of the irascable Perot that, " One thing abour Ross is that sometimes he wasn't the irritable SOB that he usually was".)

I don't think arguing about the justice, fairness or lack of them behind any of the potential candidates strengths or weaknesses has much to do with this discussion, which presumably about what is likely to unfold and who, under various scenarios, is likely to win.

I would guess that were his personal life his sum and total record, that he is far from correct all of the time:

Rollins has been married three times; the first two ending in divorce. He wed Shari Lois Scharfer, a former CBS television executive, in 2003. He has an adopted daughter, Lily, from his second marriage to Sherrie Rollins Westin.
