Obama's Re-Election not a Guarantee

With President Obama's successful defeat of Osama Bin Laden, many people believe that it may now be impossible to defeat the President in 2012.  This is not true.  Aside from his success on this front, he fails with respect to the economy.  CNN ran a poll today indicating that, even though his job performance rating has received a slight bump, his numbers on the economy and, more importantly, his handling of the deficit are down.  Unless he works to put forth a real program turn around the deficit, his political future is still an unknown.

  1. I believe Obama will win in 2012, but I've held this belief for a while, before O.B.L. was killed (can we have our Bill of Rights back now?).

    In fact, I'd put money on it.

    This belief has nothing to do with bin Laden though, but more to do with the electorate's whims, and the guaranteed failure on the part of the Dead Elephant Party or Tea Party to produce a viable candidate.
