The 2012 presidential election is 16 months away and already the maelstrom has started to heat up the political landscape. The summer of our discontent started early and with it, the sense that metaphorically at least, Obama's bus ride to infamy would become reality, sooner than later.
Obama Surges To Lead Against Generic Republican
Beset by debt ceiling woes, President Obama has been trailing behind a hypothetical "generic Republican" in recent polls. But no longer! The latest from Gallup has him moving into a solid lead. According to the monthly survey, which was conducted from August 4 -7, Obama would win 45-39 against "the Republican party's candidate."
The previous two polls from Gallup had the generic GOPer running strong with a 47-39 lead in July and 44-39 lead in June. "

The economy is in such dire straits currently, and "experts" are now anticipating that the economy is not going to get any better within the next two years...too late to save Obama from losing his job.
