Gloat and retract I will. I said that if the economy improved slightly or stayed the same then Obama would be re-elected by the independents, who would vote for the devil they knew vice putting all the eggs in a Republican basket. I retract that assertion because what happened on Friday demonstrates that it is unlikely that Obama will even run and if he does then he will be primaried out. The shine is off the Obama apple and his chickens are coming home to roost. America needs adult leadership and as of Friday the “adult” President is in the House.
The Republicans still have a long way to go to convince independents that they should be in charge again, but there is an opening for a solid and proven leader to win in 2012. It won’t be Palin, Huckabee, or Romney, but rather someone with a recent solid resume like maybe the Gov. of Indiana. Two years is a long way off and a lot of bad stuff can happen between now and then, so America needs to get down on its knees and ask God to forgive us for our greedy silly selves and bless us once more with true leadership.
