Yup, Obama will win a second term…

….because Rick Perry is a slow, slow, drunk train wreck

“Commerce, Education, and the, uh, what’s the third one?” Perry said as he pointed to his head while trying to recall the third federal agency he rails against every day on the stump.

When Romney helpfully offered, “The EPA,” the Texas governor glanced over thankfully before coming to his senses, waving off his rival, and attempting to move on.

Yet co-moderator John Harwood, a veteran of The Wall Street Journal who now works for both The New York Times and CNBC, seized the moment and would not let it pass so quickly.

“Seriously? Is EPA the one you were talking about?” he asked.

Perry replied, “No sir, no sir,” again seeming to wish the moment would end.

“You can’t name the third one?” Harwood again said.

Perry, now seeming to see his political life flashing before his eyes, replied, “The third agency of government I would do away with (pause), the Education, the, uh, Commerce, and, let’s see (pause), I can’t. The third one, I can’t. Sorry.”

Then, “Oops.”

Michele Bachmann is a moron:

Some of her gaffes — such as mixing up actor John Wayne with serial killer John Wayne Gacy on the day she entered the campaign in June — are only groaners, but others – such as saying a vaccine against a sexually transmitted disease caused mental retardation — are campaign-damaging, the Los Angeles Times reported Sunday.

During a campaign swing in Iowa recently, the Minnesota congresswoman, citing a report she said she heard, stated that 59,000 undocumented immigrants entered the United States “from Yemen, from Syria. These are nations that are state sponsors of terror.”

The State Department says Yemen is not a state sponsor of terrorism, and the Border Patrol report Bachmann referenced said only 663 of the 59,000 apprehended illegal immigrants from nations other than Mexico had ties to countries that have links to terrorism, the Times reported.

And the über-Christian right will never vote for Romney because he’s a, uh, Mormon and not near conservative “enough”.(?)

Ron Paul? Meh. He’ll run as a third party candidate in the end…

 

So, barring any major mistakes by the President, I am predicting clear sailing right through to a second term, no?

    Obama right now seems to have the same advantage Harper has. No matter how bad he does there is no credible opponent to him. Yet sometimes during the continuous campaigning now going on in the states and soon to come to Canada we forget that there is still a year to the election and about 6 months till they pick a candidate. It is possible, though unlikely, that someone formidable will grab the nomination.
