It’s all falling apart for these right-wing tea-baggers after all the chest thumping and fist pumping and declarations of a lame duck President after the 2010 Elections… once again the American people just needed a reminder of why we kicked them out of power the last time.

The republican presidential field for 2012 is in such disarray to the point that you have front runners bowing out as they look away from the magnanimous glowing aura of our great Osama-killing President.

Donald Trump and Newt Gingrich probably have the best chances. After all, the GOP is the "family values" party.

Gawd what B.S.!

Oh yes ... you mean like that "kick out" in 2008?

The field will narrow ... if you recall Obama wasn't even in the running this far out for the 2008 election.

It has to be Romney who will benefit from Huckabee's departure.

LOL, Donald Trump just confirmed that he is NOT running for President… LMAO.

I look at this several different ways:
Trump played the tea-baggers like the idiots that they are. He kept feeding them raw bloody meat, getting them all worked up into a frenzy… and in return, the right-wing tea-bagging fools strongly supported a person that played with their emotions all the way to the bank, LOL.

Trump and his massive ego, seeing the polls all favoring him began to seriously consider trying to use his pathetic and racist dog and pony show to really run for the nomination…
And then President Obama brilliantly released his long form birth certificate, and thus humiliated and embarrassed Trump sending him scurrying back to his plush hole never to be seen again… at least until the next episode of his falling TV viewership show on NBC.

Let's see...

TRUMP, out.
Huckabee, out.
Barber, out.
Brown, out.
Bush, out. Thank God, who needs to go thru that again?
Christie, out.
DeMent, out.
Jindal, out.
McDonald, out.
Pence, out.
Petraeus, out.
Rubio, out.
Thune, out.

Who's left?
Gingrich
Palin
Pawlenty
Newt
Paul
Romney
Santorum
Bachman?????????? I'm sorry that makes me laff. Then again so does Palin!
Bolton
Daniels
Graham
Stong!

11 left?
13 GONE!

Why is it a good bet that Obama will win re-election? Because no other candidate on the left has voice an interest in running. If the Democratic Party is this united right now, the right win better ramp up their propaganda machine to full song NOW, because nobody on that list can be counted on to best the incombent President of the United States, with a united war chest.

And two seperate right wing factions with perhaps two right wing candidates, spliting an already smaller section of the voting public is not at all good. Not when the Democratic Party has this much time to rally their voters to the booth.

Maybe the Birther movement has one more card to play, or the Republicans have a negro they can throw into the mix like that brother Herman Cain!
From what I understand both his parents were born in America!

Problem is, he's still Black!

The GOP has lOst their way. They have little clout with most Americans. The party of fear and hate got what they wanted in the congressional elections, and what has been dOne by them.....?
Absolutely nothing. Slash and burn On the budget to the tune of less than 1%.
Obama 2012! I like the guy, and his wife too. They have family values, Newt does not. The GOP will lose. And then lose the house and senate. The tea party will fall be quad of their lunAcy. Kind of a shame though there are some fairly sensible ideas at the heart of it

Rush Limbaugh hates Obama because he is black
Hannity hates him because he is black
O'reiley hates everyone.
Fox news hates Obama becaue that's what they are paid to do.
He has been a good president, and will get 4 more.
Suck on that conservative d-bags

Fair enough. I'd love to ask "Patriot", "ah-so", and some of the other cons how they feel about him.

Nobody knows who the heck Herman Cain is.

If you expect a Black Republican to best Obama in a national election, you are beyond crazy!
