Re: 2012 Election: Is There Even A Good Choice?
Obama turned out to be exactly what I said he was in 2008: He's the American Idol President. The media & the people got behind him because he's charismatic and cool. However, he hasn't really done much of anything since getting in office, except approving the operation that killed Osama Bin Ladin. That was awesome. Other than that though, he's been all flash, no substance, which is what I said he was on the Campaign trail, so yeah.
But he'll get reelected for four years. I made the comment back with Bush, but when somebody gets elected to a political office, it is very hard nowadays to lose that spot. Incumbent reelection rate is ridiculous high at all levels of the government, and its getting harder and harder for new comers to win elections which is why its good Presidents have term limits or you'd probably see somebody stay in there for 24 years.
But the Repubs aren't offering up anybody else that great anyway. Herman Cain was crazy. Thank heavens he dropped out. Romney? No thank you.
Its a pretty sad state of affairs when the possibility of Colbert running for office, a guy who got famous doing a parody of Bill O'Riley & running a political satire program on Comedy Central, might just be the best option. Pretty sad.
