Romney will Lose Against Obama in 2012

I am going to keep this post brief. The corporate media is full of coverage about the republican primaries (freakshow) for selecting a candidate to run against Barack Obama in 2012. The current media favorite is Mitt Romney. Here is my prediction-

Barring some major scandal or screwup, Obama will very likely defeat Mitt Romney in Nov 2012.

Some of you might wonder about the reasoning behind this somewhat bold prediction- so read on..

1. Romney lags behind Obama even though the latter is clearly a corporate whore. The current economic situation should have put any half-decent republican candidate in a commanding lead over Obama. The very fact that no flesh-and-blood republican candidate can consistently beat Obama (aka Herbert Hoover II) in opinion polls tells me that most people see them as inferior to Obama.

2. Romney comes across as a slick conman who reminds people of the smiling sociopathic CEO who fired them while himself making hundreds of millions. Did I mention that he did precisely that when he worked in the “private” sector. I can guarantee you that his tenure and actions at Bain Capital will be the main weapon used against him in the general election.

3. Romney has changed positions on wedge social issues (abortion, healthcare, gays etc) a bit too often, plus he is a Mormon. It remains to be seen if his lack of ideological purity makes the evangelical republican voter core.. say.. somewhat less enthusiastic than they would otherwise be. It will come down to the ratio of hate for that “black guy” versus the sociopathic crypto-liberal Mormon.

4. Any attempt at suppressing black voters in the age of smartphones and twitter is going to backfire very badly, especially after Obama was elected in 2008. Whites have to get accustomed to the idea that they are a rapidly aging and increasingly irrelevant group as far the course of the nation is concerned.

5. Future attempts by sociopathic mormon boy to woo the evangelical republican core will push away enough moderates to hurt his ability to win the general election. Yes, that is right. His efforts at reconciliation with the core of the republican base after nomination will destroy ant realistic chance of getting elected in Nov 2012.

What do you think? Comments?

    You’re bang on. I always thought that Obama would sit there for 8 years. That fact that chump No 2 and Ron Paul came so close to Romney shows that the latter has no real ability to lead; he’s a protest vote against change for the better.

    There’s no passion in their voting, they’re just doing it because “Um, Republican I guess?” The Golden One will overtake him, probably by about 60%, and then the world will truly start going to hell.

    Not that Romney would do anything worthwhile.

    Whites should kill their rapidly aging constituency.

    Already, the turnout in Iowa and New Hampshire is below levels seen in 2008. When you consider how de-moralized the Republican party was after Bush, that they are showing up in fewer numbers now tells you something. The news networks can try to inject some semblance of excitement, but right now there isn’t any. Since the practices of Bain & Co. were first mentioned by a Republican, you can expect plenty of ads by Democrats in the fall touching upon the same subject.

    I would disagree about the Hoover comparison. He is more like FDR – a man who started the modern imperial presidency. A stable hand in uncertain economic times. But, also prone to simply adopting powers that are not granted. FDR, the liberal darling, stripped Japanese Americans of their rights, maintained a racially-segregated military, and imposed price controls. Obama continues the drone war without any express authorization, oversaw a federal backing of private banking/gambling that was never legislated, and has continued the folly of the War on Drugs. And Guantanamo is still open.

    BTW – Obama did end “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, got rid of the scandalous “pre-existing condition” practice in health care reform, saved the auto industry, kept his promise of killing bin Laden, got troops out of Iraq. So, I do not by into the leftist handwringing that Obama is no different than Bush.

    Calling whites “aging and increasingly irrelevant” somewhat misses the point. While politicians will be pandering for the Hispanic and Black votes, there are still more whites than those two groups combined. Certainly, the GOP is ideologically split because of the aging baby boomers but there is a large degree of cohesiveness in the young (17-24, 25-30+) age brackets. It will only take a little bit of time for these groups to age and for the left to have continued shooting themselves in the foot to the degree that the modern big-government Republican party has.

    The average IQ in India is 82. Thanks for demonstrating why.

    LOL.. You?

    In any case, the very fact that Obama is still a viable candidate says more about the FAILURE of the republican party to select a electable candidate than any wonki-sh article could ever say.

      Lol. Alpha-dork showed up.

      I wouldn’t waste time on Heartiste, he does not believe in logic. Now, if you had alpha body language and knew how to craft a decent neg or two, then alpha-dork might take your position into account.

      Oh man, we’ve got big old (I can only get laid if i pay) Advocatus Degenerate talking tough by using all caps on the word “failure.”

      Face it you scumbag subhuman, your pathological hatred of all things White blinds your little turd-world eyes to the evident truth of the matter –
      That no matter what candidate the Republican select, that candidate would win in a landslide against your precious little third-world kenyan.

    Pretty good analysis. However the entire US system is deeply sick and neither party could present a good candidate who is basically honest and makes ethically driven well thought out judgment calls. If by some miracle one was elected, more than likely the political machine find some means to be rid of them.

    Fixes are available but its a long topic

    #4 is a bit of wishful thinking. Blacks are also a shrinking share of the electorate and many, nearly most of them are ineligible to vote because of felonies or long term incarceration. Many others simply lack the drive to actually get out there as the Black leadership is as moribund as the White. They could maybe toss a close race, maybe. Also many loathe Obama for the simple reason the economic follies hurt them more than even Whites and Hispanics. I don’t expect to see heavy turnout

    The Hispanic vote is in play but Hispanics are far from monolithic and not that politically active either.

    Chris Christie would have been the better candidate for this election, strange he refused to compete. I don’t think Romney is any remarkable, but hey, to beat Herbert Hoover II it’s more than enough. I don’t see why Republicans, from the crazy evangelicals to the smartass jews wouldn’t vote for Romney (sure, they will complain a lot but they will vote anyway). The problems is that democrats will refuse to vote. Do you imagine all the Occupy crew going to vote for Hoover again? Leftists are as idealistic as their job allows them to be. With none, they’ll be on board for the next war-promising tyrant.

    This is the most inept analysis I’ve ever read. You must not follow politics and public sentiment. For every one person that fears obama won’t get re-elected, there are TWO that fear he will. Let me break that down for you, for every person that will run to the election booth to give a vote to obama because they love him so, there will be two people running to the booth to vote for ANYONE but obama. (http://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/washington-whispers/2012/01/09/poll-americans-2-1-fear-obamas-reelection)

    Now lets move on to this. Obama is the most liberal president in recent history, thats a fact. The liberal movement in America is tiny (21%), which is remarkable since the media is so obviously biased. On the other hand the conservative movement is nearly twice that (40%). Given the choice between obama and anyone in the republican primaries that 40% is going to vote AGAINST obama. (http://www.gallup.com/poll/152021/Conservatives-Remain-Largest-Ideological-Group.aspx)

    On to Obamacare. 54% of America wants obamacare repealed. If obama remains in power will he repeal it? No. The only hope of ridding us of obamacare is the republican nominee. (http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/current_events/healthcare/health_care_law)

    Now lets not get started with the “I hate america” type speech we’ve heard from Obama, lets not start on the fast and the furious, lets not start on the slew of solyndra corruption from this administration.

    IF Obama wins, against anyone, it will prove America is full of dim-witted jack asses that can’t see the forest through the trees. But he won’t, it doesn’t ‘matter who the nominee is on the republican side is, it could be a horse and it would beat obama.

    The choice is between a black scam artist (Obama) and an even more psychopathic white scam artist (Romney).
