Well, first, let me thank you for such a civil post.<quoted text>
I think you're being delusional Carol. For one thing the economy is making a recovery. I read an article in USA Today that reported that auto parts manufacturers are going pedal to the metals to keep up with demand from American auto makers who are turning out vehicles in almost record numbers. Home prices are on the rise and many families are no longer under water.
As for Obamacare I think you're going to be very disappointed. As more people realize and receive the benefits from it it's going to gain in popularity and are going to realize that the right wing was lying to them about it.
As long as you tea party types control the GOP they won't be able to mount a credible candidate for a nationwide race. Look at what happened in 2012. You had one viable candidate in John Huntsman but he wasn't crazy extreme enough for you. So you went through a group of clowns and buffoons and had to settle for a chameleon who demonstrated not only was a sociopath and a liar but couldn't connect to ordinary people.
This time the most credible candidate id Chris Christie but he's going to be rejected for the unpardonable sin of giving Barack Obama credit for the way the federal government handled Hurricane Sandy. You've got Marco Rubio but again the right wing is going to reject him because he tried to reach across the aisle on immigration reform. So you've got extremists like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz and a proven liar like Paul Ryan.
I'm afraid it won't even be close.
However, Obamacare concerns many including democrats. They can't even get it off the ground. Congress and their families just voted themselves exempt from it. Can't be that good, right?
There's so much that could happen between now and 2016, it might as well be an eternity away. We still have the rest of this year and the next to come through intact without any new revelations of abuses of power and surviving another year of unknowns with Obamacare looming in the shadows.
