Derangement Syndrome

Fan: “ People I would vote for in 2012 for President: Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Michelle Bachman, Rick Santorum, a bag of beans, a sack of flour, an inanimate object, anyone or thing but what we have now.” DM: “I would vote for Blago right now.”

Thank Goodness Democrats Never Uttered the Words "Anyone But Bush!" Back In 2004 said...

Those Right Wingers are so stupid!

In 2004 though, we went ahead and re-elected Bush anyway. The difference here is you guys mean it.

It Takes A Majority To Win said...

"We"? You voted for Bush in 2004?

No, a majority of voters liked the idea of Bush as President more than Kerry as President. Plenty of guys on your side meant "Anyone But Bush", just not enough Independents did.

Difference in 2012 is that there are a ton of Independents that feel the same way as Miller and his caller. And deep down, you know it, too.

All right, if you want to admit that you and Dennis Miller are as deranged as Democrats were in 2004, I won't fight you.

And Women, And Blacks, And Hispanics.. said...

I'm not the one you have to worry about. It's all those Independents that are leaving Obama in droves.

Danielk said...

The independents who are going to flock to your beloved Newt Gingrich?

It's a numbers thing, you know.. said...

They don't have to vote for Gingrich (or whomever the Republican candidate is), they just don't have to vote for Obama.

Do you have any doubt that the Republican voters will come out in record numbers in 2012? If Obama doesn't get the same kind of support he saw in 2008, he will be in trouble.

If he loses a few percentage points from college voters, Independents, women, hispanics, etc, he loses the election.

The polling data suggests he has lost support from every demographic category.

You don't ever seem to see the polling for Republicans.

For instance, you'll look at this one:

Which has the Democrats ahead for the generic congress next year, and you'll tell me it is proof of the coming massive defeat of the Democrats.

You will look at the polls showing Newt Gingrich running a statistical dead heat with Obama and see it as proof that Americans prefer Newt Gingrich 2 to 1. Hell, even Republicans don't prefer Newt Gingrich. They're just afraid the candidate they like would get creamed in the Presidential debate.
