Perfect Storm Could Elect Palin as POTUS!

    This article outlines how a third party candidate (Bloomberg?) could hand the 2012 election to Palin, as Nader siphoned off liberals' votes from Gore in 2000.
    What really struck me about this article is how come we, the American people, are not hearing about Obama's very real accomplishments? Where is this "liberal media" the righties complain about? Obama needs some serious PR and it's none too soon to start!

      Not to come down on Obama but the main reason the 'liberal' media as you call them aren't touting Obama's accomplishment might be because every one of them has been soundly rejected by a majority of Americans.  November 2nd wasn't a cry for Congress to work together, it was a warning that things better change and change fast.  Think for a minute....if Obama himself truly believed his 'accomplishments' were so great and loved and accepted, he be on TV even more often than he already is blowing his horn constantly.  On the Bloomberg issue.....if you check recent polls, Bloomberg is rather disliked outside of New York.  He's more regional than any other prospect.  No matter how good and qualified one might be, you can't buck that type of perception.

    Obama's accomplishments are NOT rejected. They are practiced by most of us. We all are basically fair-minded and decent.
    It's just that the fringe idiot right got everyone foamed up in such a lather of crazy, that they bought the complete line of phony bullsh*t the Money Men were selling.

    So now, instead of helping people who lost their jobs---you will help multi-millionaires. Not to "create jobs", but to hoard more money.

    It was a brilliant piece of mind manipulation, and now we will reap the god-awful results.

      Yep, keep on with that helping the rich line.  Ever know of anyone that got hired by a poor man?

    It looks like the Huffington Post either doesn't want Obama to run on his record or they believe that its leftwing base will not vote. In other words, absent of substance, they need a boogey man. Enter Sarah Palin. BTW, I'm NO FAN of Sarah Palin. It would be a DISASTER if she were nominated by the GOP or ran at all.

    I also find that the article is a bit juvenile and loaded with inaccuracies

      'Juvenile' is an opinion, and you are entitled to yours, but just what are the inaccuracies that the article is 'loaded' with?

        "Or how the public option was unpopular even though it was wildly popular."

        Cite Gallup:

        "Or how President Obama's has a terrible record on jobs even though more jobs have been created during his term than were created during all eight years of the Bush administration."

        Cite Bureau of Labor Stats.
        http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/24 … ue-de-rugy

        "Or how President Obama is ballooning the deficit even though he's responsible for the single largest one-year reduction in the deficit -- ever ($122 billion!)."

        This is simply a slight of hand trick. The "Health Care Plan" is not being considered.

    I'm pretty sure that the media spending so much effort making Palin big news does Obama a lot of good. She makes the right look bad and takes focus off of him.

    Anyway, the article is nonsense. Palin doesn't have a serious shot at the nomination, much less the presidency. She's only news because they keep writing stories about her.

    really? seriously people! watching Palin make me think I'm watching wizard of Oz, and she is Glenda the good witch!! I for one don't see a problem with having a women in the Big Office. But for heaven sakes I rather see Mrs. Clinton get it before Palin.
