As my more faithful readers know, I would never be confused with Pollyanna, even if I donned a pinafore and carried a parasol. But, just as confident as I was that John McCain, thanks to his own pathetic campaign and the economy’s coming down with a severe case of the vapors a month before the election, would lose to Barack Obama, that’s how confident I am that Obama is moving back to Chicago in January, 2013.
Unlike Dick Morris, who told Bill O’Reilly that Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina would easily defeat Jerry Brown and Barbara Boxer here in California, I knew no Republican had a chance in a statewide election. Come to think of it, I often wish I had the same opportunities to win steak dinners from Morris that O’Reilly has. I’d never have to pay for another meal. In fact, sometimes, I wonder if Morris is reading tealeaves or smoking them.
In any case, I have a slew of reasons why I’m convinced Obama is bound to lose the 2012 election. To begin with, the curtain has been pulled back on the Wizard of Malarkey, and millions of suckers have seen with their own eyes that “Hope and Change” was just more of the same old political hokum. What’s more, feeling good about yourself because you voted to elect a black president doesn’t mean quite as much when he’s the incumbent.
There is also the matter of an unemployment rate that’s higher than when he took office and immediately pushed through a trillion dollar stimulus he guaranteed would drastically lower that rate. As if that weren’t bad enough, he’s run up four trillion dollars in additional debt, much of it owed to China. Then, for reasons I can’t begin to fathom, he sent us into Libya, at a current cost of a billion dollars, in the vague hope of removing a Middle Eastern tyrant who’s no better or worse than the rest of his colleagues in that part of the world. Furthermore, even if we managed to eliminate Gaddafi, jihadists in the guise of freedom fighters would in all likelihood, replace him.
But the actual reasons I’m betting Obama won’t be re-elected is quite simply because he won’t have the electoral votes.
