The GOP - Needs help! Democrats should not feel comfortable!

First I want to admit I have not been following politics like I used to because I am busy raising our bundle of joy. I do pay attention to see if the Grand Old Party has any true contenders.  When the GOP first announced the potential candidates at the beginning of 2011, the contenders on the list  were  laughable – Donald Trump- really! Giuliani needs to realize that nobody cares what you think! Now there are eight candidates:  Michelle Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman Jr., Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum.  The first three are controversial so I don’t know how they are they are going to change their image.  Newt Gingrich maybe a favorite for the moment but, hello ...isn’t he a loose cannon- the guy is nuts!  If there is anyone who will give President Obama a run for his money its Mitt Romney.

The democrats need to aggressively focus on getting the house and senate seats, not only getting the President re-elected. The President needs to get his momentum going again and pray for a miracle that the economy take turn for the better over the next six months.  The GOP  will harp on  that the President has failed to address the economy, immigration, health care and something about foreign policy will come up.  I have a feeling it’s going to be a nasty race to the top and the TV networks are going to make millions if not billions covering this election.

  1. Very interesting!! I absolutely agree with you that we democrats shouldn't get too comfortable. It's definitely time for President Obama to gain momentum again and not only pray but really take actions to turn the economy around. If he is able to accomplish just that, I believe he will be surely reelected. I also agree that Romney will be a strong opponent however I doubt he will get the GOP nomination.
