Bush's wasn't all that in 2004, but the Democrats fielded a weak candidate who fumbled too much.
And in 1994, if you had asked what the re-election chances were of one William Jefferson Clinton, you would've been told they were close to zero, as the Republicans and their Contract with America had swept to power. But the Republicans fumbled badly, and Dole was a weak candidate.
So you can say BO is a dead duck if you want, but his excellent speaking skills are tough to match, and the Republicans need to field a strong candidate or they too may re-learn what history has to teach.
