This is about a 6. The reliance on a single poll of national voter preference still makes Sarah Palin automatically president forever, but Obama merely has to brush Rafalca's mane and give her some apples.

Why just limit it to the 2012 election? Let's just go back and revisit EVERY presidential election? Forget recent history. What about Martin Van Buren? Or Fatty Taft? Huh?! John Tyler? Millard "The Duck" Fillmore? And Harding? James Buchanan? We could do this forever!

That's because enough time has passed for people to start thinking of Romney as "Generic Republican" again.

Once he opens his big mouth and starts saying what he thinks about you people his numbers would plunge again. He just isn't a good candidate.

jbc: In other news, Fox Noise still doesn't know how the Electoral College works.


Eh; the Washingtong Post who ran the poll does. If the increased dissatisfaction is disproportionately concentrated in the South, that's one thing. However, if the eight point national shift also reflects corresponding 8 point shifts for median swing states like Florida, Virginia and Ohio, President Obama would have come in with a pile more like 200-250 electoral votes, rather than the 330ish he did get. Even a "mere" 5 points would have sufficed to tip the election outcome.

Rev. Skarekroe: mikeresnick.com


That's actually a pretty kick-ass collection. The one with President Dukakis is merely hysterical; most of the others are pretty thought provoking.

As far as healthcare is conserned, Mitt said he would keep the popular parts of the ACA but without the mandatory requirement to purchase it.  So I do not know how that would affect prices and stuff as compared to now.  I do not think they would go down though with the increased mandatory coverages and stuff but with no large guarenteed pool of buyers.

That's because when the book came out Bush hadn't been president very long, so instead of being able to play with the Gulf War and whatever else happened back then they just went with an alien invasion or some similar silliness.

Even though Obama lost the first debate when Romney smugly said he would kill PBS and Big Bird, I knew he was done for. He acted like he had no clue how everyday people lived. Im not sure if it was an act or what.

And you know what if there was another election today he would lose again. Fact. Healthcare woes and all.

If the 2012 election had happened again 2 days after the first one, Mitt would have still lost.  If the 2012 election had happened in 1960, Mitt wouldn't have been old enough to be on the ticket.  If it had happened in 1760, people would have been confused because we ddin't vote for Presidents then.  If it had happened during the Cretaceous Period, a small shrew-like mammal would have won because they were much more appealing than Mitt.  If it happens again in 3012, Mitt-bot might have a chance, but I'd vote for Fry.

The house is quiet, and the Romney kids can see the pain coming.  Last year's Thanksgiving was a bust, full of Boston Market and emotional breakdowns.  Ever since then, they've been avoiding their parents' house as Mitt slowly went mad with grief.  The last time they saw him in March, he was wearing a bad approximation of a Patton helmet made of crusty mucus and nothing else.  Now, when they went over to the house, the kids stayed in the car.

The maid sat on the couch, chain smoking, getting paid whether she busted her ass or didn't.  Heaps of uneaten Boston Market dinners were stacked everywhere in different states of decay.  A pair of slacks was stuck to the dining room ceiling.  The doghouse outside had the skeleton of a dog along with a hastily made 'Secretary of Defense' sign that was hopefully written in very sticky peanut-laden mud.

Climbing the stairs, the Romney children realized that there was serious water damage.  The stairs creaked and crumpled, the Asian wood and drywall coming apart at the seams.  They found Mitt in the master bedroom.  His suit was cringled, as if someone had spread a thin varnish of gravy upon it in lieu of bathing.  His snot helmet hung by the closet -- along with a hastily made 'Ovel Orifice' sign in the same manner of the doghouse's -- as Mitt laughed and laughed.  "Look!"  He pointed at the sideways TV.  "If they held the election now, I would the president.  I WOULD RULE.  ME!  JUST LIKE DADDY!  JUST.  LIKE.  DADDY!!"

He grabs a daughter and shakes her so hard that a crown flies out of her mouth.  Mitt dives to the carpet and grabs it.  "Quickly."  He looks to his kids as they stare wild-eyed between the affected daughter and their father.  "I need more of these.  They fuel my time machine.  If I can go back, we can do this!"  He opens his mouth and points at the bloody claw hammer next to some molars on the work table...which is, in reality, the back of an overflowing toilet.  "Now, this might hurt, but I figure the time paradox will restore us all once we regain the White House.  DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND?  WE HAVE TO REGAIN THE WHITE HOUSE!  I have written the notes on our ascent right here!"  And he dives headfirst into the brown water of the toilet, bubbling and gurgling for minutes, knocking his teeth off the back of the toilet and masking the sounds of the children running down the stairs, out the door, and into their leased SUVs.

The maid smirks as the tire smoke from the departing children clear.  She lights another cigarette.  If only they stayed fifteen minutes more, they could see the encore of The Passion of the Christ with Mitt's trousersnake with the nail gun as Pontius Pilate.

Guntram Shatterhand: The house is quiet, and the Romney kids can see the pain coming.  Last year's Thanksgiving was a bust, full of Boston Market and emotional breakdowns.  Ever since then, they've been avoiding their parents' house as Mitt slowly went mad with grief.  The last time they saw him in March, he was wearing a bad approximation of a Patton helmet made of crusty mucus and nothing else.  Now, when they went over to the house, the kids stayed in the car.

The maid sat on the couch, chain smoking, getting paid whether she busted her ass or didn't.  Heaps of uneaten Boston Market dinners were stacked everywhere in different states of decay.  A pair of slacks was stuck to the dining room ceiling.  The doghouse outside had the skeleton of a dog along with a hastily made 'Secretary of Defense' sign that was hopefully written in very sticky peanut-laden mud.

Climbing the stairs, the Romney children realized that there was serious water damage.  The stairs creaked and crumpled, the Asian wood and drywall coming apart at the seams.  They found Mitt in the master bedroom.  His suit was cringled, as if someone had spread a thin varnish of gravy upon it in lieu of bathing.  His snot helmet hung by the closet -- along with a hastily made 'Ovel Orifice' sign in the same manner of the doghouse's -- as Mitt laughed and laughed.  "Look!"  He pointed at the sideways TV.  "If they held the election now, I would the president.  I WOULD RULE.  ME!  JUST LIKE DADDY!  JUST.  LIKE.  DADDY!!"

He grabs a daughter and shakes her so hard that a crown flies out of her mouth.  Mitt dives to the carpet and grabs it.  "Quickly."  He looks to his kids as they stare wild-eyed between the affected daughter and their father.  "I need more of these.  They fuel my time machine.  If I can go back, we can do this!"  He opens his mouth and points at the bloody claw hammer next to some molars on the work table...which is, in reality, the back of an overflowing toilet.  "Now, this might hurt, but I figure the time pa ...


Amazing. The realism is breathtaking...

Yes, Fox News. Sure RoMONEY would have won.

Now tell us how everything would have been so awesome if the Confederacy had won, or if Luke Skywalker's Proton Torpedoes had missed and the Rebel Alliance was vaporized on Yavin.

It's an interesting question because, had Romney won, the Democrats would not be taking the country to edge of fiscal disaster every three months the ways the repubs do; as a result, the wheels of government would turn much more smoothly and the sizable contingent of "no new hires until a repub is once again in the White House" business owners would probably make for a more flourishing economy. The tide would definitely be rising, though there is still a question of whether it would float all boats.  There is certainly an element of "elect us or we will make your life a living hell" to the repub way of doing things that hasn't been on the Democrats' horizon since the 1970's.

On the other hand, if Romney were president we would most likely be embroiled in shooting wars in Syria and Iran. I doubt our beleaguered armed forces can keep up this relentless state of conflict much longer without something giving--perhaps an unexpected and humiliating defeat, perhaps actual mutiny among troops being sent back into combat for the umpteenth time. A well-coordinated attack on the poor by the White House and the House of Representatives might very well lead to civil unrest in this country. The last time the repubs brought the economy to the teetering edge of collapse, they had the good sense to drop the hot potato in the black guy's lap. They never quite seem to learn thier lesson.

Obama stopped campaigning for President, and his poll numbers went down.

Romney stopped campaigning for President and his poll numbers went up.

I think there's a lesson in there somewhere.

This if cours assumes Romney polls would be any better. By this point he would likely be shooting bums to show how he is all bootstraps and called 99% of Americans as c@&c suckers who should die of AIDS.

Let that be a lesson for the Republicans - you have to lock your candidate in an isolated chamber for 54 months and never let anyone see or hear or even think about their existence. It's the only way to win.

whidbey: Aura226: And then we would have Romneycare Instead of Romneycare.

It's cute that you think ACA is the same thing. Shouldn't you be complaining about the Website and how it's Obama's 19th Katrina?


Yes. I do think ACA is like Romneycare, My source is liberal Nobel prize economist Paul Krugman. And no I'm not going use the 19th Katrina Argument because I'm not a farking conservative.

BunkoSquad: Does this disheveled man look like Presidential material to you?


Oh my God his hair is so unkempt. He couldn't possibly be a better president than Obama.

Pretty sure you are, because you're using their busted arguments. Liberals aren't making such blatantly dishonest comparisons.

This is Paul Krugman argument "And you've just described the Massachusetts health reform, aka Romneycare, which in turn is basically the same as Obamacare

There are no more conservative alternatives - not unless you give up on the whole idea that everyone should have coverage. There are alternatives to the left - single-payer, VA-style government provision - but Obamacare is already as conservative as a plan to make health insurance more or less universal can be"

Tonight on "Math Republicans can do to make themselves feel better"... a new poll!

Romney would have been a horrible rubber stamp president.

One who would have increased economic disparity, gutted social programs, sold out the environment and turned back the clock on any progress on civil rights while gearing up for war on Iran.

A bullet dodged.
