Usually the party of a two-term president doesn't end up winning a third election in a row. Rarely.
Of course, Hillary will be made out to look like the next "celebrity president" by 2016 by the liberal media.
They love creating "stars" for the "star struck" majority presently.
George Bush won in 1988 despite two terrible terms in Off ice by the movie cowboy. Compared to the Gipper, Obama looks like the Prophet Mohammed reincarnated.

Fighting with Democrats is not working lately as seen just a couple of hours ago on This Week when Joaquin Castro skillfully humiliated a Tennessee Republican Congressman. I can't wait til one of the Castro twins gets a shot at Mark Rubio.

You bring up a good point, one I've been tapping on this week. If Obamacare is as disastrous as the GOP makes it out to be why don't they just let it run its course, they'll be sure to sweep in 2016 if its what they say it is.
That's what I would do if I were them, makes me wonder why they so desperately oppose it now ya know?
That's the division among members in the party right now. There are those who want to defund it now believing it to be the last chance to save small businesses and the country from chaos, higher premiums and higher taxes.

Others want to let it run its course so when things get really bad they can take back the Senate and then repeal it in 2016, hopefully, with the next republican president.

Holt is running third in the primary, even trailing the Mafia guy. Holt isn't even mustard on Booker's hot dog.

Obama has already given us the word on the 2016 election. Ever wonder why old Hilary is so quiet?

You Tea Party fools don't understand that nothing matters except winning elections. Issues are worthless when we have busloads of voters to carry around to various polling places. You're not even in the game.

You don't know that. They may have been light-skinned and well-spoken, with private school educations. Anything is possible.

Do you really have poor reading comprehension Carol or do you just pick out just what seems to prove your point. You seem to have missed this;
"The legal and operational problems surrounding the N.S.A.ís surveillance activities have come under scrutiny from the Obama administration, Congressional intelligence committees and a secret national security court, said the intelligence officials, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity because N.S.A. activities are classified. Classified government briefings have been held in recent weeks in response to a brewing controversy that some officials worry could damage the credibility of legitimate intelligence-gathering efforts."
Got that Carol? The Obama administration has put the NSA under increased scrutiny.
Also;
"Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. went to the national security court to seek a renewal of the surveillance program only after new safeguards were put in place."
What new legislation are you talking about Carol? You do realize that any such legislation would have to pass the GOP controlled House. Don't you really know anything about the legislative process?
"Populous Carol? For your information that word is an adjective so your sentence makes no sense at all. I think the word you're looking for is "populace" Since you claim that you were some kind of hot shot teacher you should know that.
You Tea Bag idiots weren't demonstrating for accountability liar, you were just pissed off that a man of color with a funny sounding name got elected.
Three years ago when we went to DC to get my son settled into his first year in college the hotel we stayed at was full of tea baggers who came down to here Glenn Beck spout his paranoid insanity. I picked up enough from conversations in the elevator, breakfast room and lobby to figure that out pretty quick.
No you racist nitwit, Barack Obama is not an imposter, he's the duly elected president of the United States. You however are an imposter every time you claim to be a Christian. I don't think you and your ilk are much as Americans either. You'd sell this country out to the corporate plutocrats as long as they keep validating your ignorance, and bigotry.
Obama also said he was outraged by the IRS targeting and said he would get to the bottom of it but now calls it a phony scandal.

Obama also said that he would be forthcoming about the facts surrounding Benghazi when all the investigations were done. Now he calls it a phony scandal.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder is the #1 law breaker who wants to create more racial division than be accountable for fast and furious, the Black Panthers obstructing a voting precinct and illegally confiscating journalists private information.

You're either a fool or much too gullible for your own good.

The only expose you should be worrying about is being lied to about a video that had nothing to do with the 9/11 anniversary attack and someone who exercised their First Amendment rights was arrested immediately and is still in custody while the perpetrators of that attack roamed free for 10 months.
And all those "investigations" still underway which restricted our president from being truthful are apparently still underway because he hasn't uttered a single word of truth yet.
How gullible are you anyway?
HEY STUPID! There were witnesses on the ground in Benghazi that said they heard the group that attacked the consulate, Ansar al-Shariah, reference the video. This is the same group that destroyed an Italian consulate because of a perceived insult to the prophet.
No nitwit the producer of the video Nakoula Basseley Nakoula wasn't sent to jail for making the video, he was sent for violating the conditions of his parole.
So where has the President lied nitwit?
You're an idiot Carol!

The investigation into the IRS practice of targeting conservative groups is moving closer to the White House.
~IRS chief counselís office in Washington demanded information on the 2010 election activity of tea party groups applying for tax-exempt status.
~Lois Lerner, the director of the IRS Exempt Organizations division, ordered tea party applications to go through a multi-level review that included her senior adviser and the office of the IRS chief counsel, a political appointee.
~William Wilkins, one of two Obama administration political appointees at the IRS, leads the IRS chief counsel.
~Subpoenaing IRS documents from the Treasury Department is reluctantly slow to deliver documents from the IRS.
~Top IRS official blamed two agents and pled the Fifth though targeting is now known to have been broader in scope than one IRS agency in Cincinnati and two agents.
Why is Nixon's cover up refusing to release information in the Watergate investigation any different than this administration doing the same thing?
Anyone?
HEY STUPID! Watergate involved an actual crime. Since when is it a crime to exercise due diligence in determining whether groups applying for 501(c)(4) status are actually on the up and up concerning their motives?

You know. The video. The one Susan Rice was sent out to five different Sunday shows to blame the attack on.
The one that got the person who made that virtually unknown video until the WH brought attention to it arrested for exercising his right of free speech.
The one Obama kept blaming long after Hillary and Panetta came clean about it being a planned terrorist attack.
You know. The video? Hello? Anyone home?
Once again stupid, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula wasn't arrested for exercising his 1st Amendment rights he was arrested for violating the conditions of his parole.
Obviously no one's home inside your thick skull.
