FN just showed a picture of Obama hugging his wife that they tweeted out and said "He always jokes that she's more popular than he is...He's Right!"

it's akin to 2004 tho. most of the people voting probably aren't pro-obama or pro-romney, they're just anti the other guy. obama sucks. romney sucks even worse

i agree, it's perfectly reasonable. my point was more that the feds were only going after a select group as opposed to all of them

If Romney were a good troll he'd use up the remaining campaign money and buy every second of commercial time during the super bowl

obama has this strange power that people actually still like him. It took him a LONG time before any major pundits were willing to pick him apart. I have friends who are still like "he just needs another term to fix all the bush ****". Same people who used to anti-war march, but apparently don't care about war now that team blue is in charge.

Just lol if Biden runs and wins in '16. How inept a candidate will the Repubs have to nominate for that to become a reality?

Any reason for this? I realize he said he didn't care about them in '08 and then sent the FDA after them, but this isn't the same situation. There's no political points to be gained and you know Barry himself is a friend of the ganj. Can't see him ordering the feds in this time around.

between jindal, rubio and christie it seems damn near impossible for biden/clinton to win barring obama walking on water for the next 4 years and biden/clinton capitalizing by association

^ yeah there is zero percent chance that Biden or any other Democrat wins in four years. They'll have about as much chance as McCain after two Bush terms. Hope third parties at least make some inroads but no way I'm holding my breath on that.

Bobby Jindal stands a great chance imo. Solid skin color, creepy as **** but that kind of creepy that older folks like. Seemingly "clean".
