Additional difficulty: The Clinton-Bot 2.0 was fully equipped with a variety of sexual quips and personality traits, representing advances in modern programming to create a fully assimilated life-like artificial intelligence. This resulted in a personable candidate that was able to balance management techniques with general public appeal.

Romney-Bot 2.0 was designed for accounting purposes and all actions are based on the premise of ensuring maximum wealth retention. He has purchased the "elder statemen" body modification in an attempt to appear graceful, however to date market research suggests that it is firmly rooted in Uncanny Valley,

Romney is using the same political strategy that lost Kerry the election against W in 2004.

No, no - Romney is far more similar to Winfield Scott's failed campaign of 1852 while Obama's strategy mirrors that of Rutherford B. Hayes.

Bush lost by being an out-of-touch rich guy. So all the GOP has to do is not run a candidate like that.

Car_Ramrod: CokeBear: So who is the 3rd party candidate that will split Obama's vote?

According to the article:

This year, Mitt Romney doesn't have the help of a Ross Perot-style spoiler (though the group Americans Elect may yet produce a left-of-center nominee who can play part of that role).

According to the Washington Post:

Last week was supposed to be the first week of online voting on the Americans Elect site, when anyone anywhere could click to endorse practiced politicians or to draft neophytes. But the candidate choices have remained decidedly low-profile, and traffic is meager on the site, which cost $9 million to construct. Scrambling to avert failure, Americans Elect has postponed online voting for a month.

So... nobody.

Though Romney will have competition. Not only will Ron Paul stay in the race just like last time but he'll have to contend with the Libertarian Party's Gary Johnson who is popular in the southwest and the Constitution Party which is growing in popularity in the south.

"No...no he isn't... But you can imagine what'd it be like if he did!"

It is interesting, though. That goes beyond their normal projection. It's like meta-projection.

So far, we're seeing the Obama campaign run very much like the Bush campaign in 1992. The focus is on painting Romney as a secret radical whose personal background should be disqualifying to hold the highest office in the land.

I have not seen this from the Obama campaign. At all. Am I missing something? This seems to be the GOP's campaign against Obama for the past 5 years.

Actually, it sounds like the same strategy McCain/Palin used against him in 2008.

But I do appreciate your concern, Fox News. I really do.
