Why Obama could win.
Americans tend toward voting for the peace candidate. Witness Wilson and FDR's promises, even if they were lying. Now, this sounds funny. Obama a "peace candidate?" He's been worse than Bush. However, relative to Mitt and his Bush advisors, Obama is that in a relative sense. Mitt's talking about going after Russia and China even—not just Iran. So the perception is that he is just by comparison.
Man, I hate John Roberts now. We'd be better off with 4 more years of Obama if the ACA were made unConstitutional because he'd be a lame duck. Enough time for more conservatives to clean up the Republican party for 2016. Roberts just had no spine to hold to his original conviction. He allowed the leftists on the Court and Obama to badger him and his image became more important.
