Will a Democrat challenge Obama?

Usually an incumbent US President is virtually automatic as a nominee for reelection. In fact, the last incumbent President who faced a challenge was - you guessed it - Jimmy Carter.

Will Barack Hussein Obama face a challenge? Seven out of ten Democrats still want to see him nominated - but that's a decline of 11% since June.
Despite the decline, history is on Obama's side. "In 1994, only 57% of Democrats wanted the party to renominate Bill Clinton, and he went on to win the nomination and a second term two years later," said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

Without a prominent primary challenger, Obama's bid for re-election seems to be safe for now. But of those losing faith, the poll reveals that moderate Democrats are more likely than liberals to say the party should nominate someone else and younger Democrats are more likely to favor a new nominee than those who are older.

The CNN/ORC International poll was conducted by telephone from August 5-7 among 462 Democrats and independents who lean Democratic. It has a sampling error of plus-or-minus 4.5 percentage points.
Well, yes, but this is not two years before the election. It's fifteen months before the election. And Obama is trending downward.

Will Israel play a role in all this? It might. If estimates are correct that Obama's foul treatment of Israel will result in a drop in fundraising for the Democratic National Committee, that could create a bid for a challenger even if only to try to preserve the Democrats' position in Congress.

I know this is ONE ex-democrat that has told the Dem's to go to hell...

I may not BE a GOP'er at this point I'd take almost ANYONE over the current administration..

I think the only paradox would a "david duke or ron paul goper, verses an obama or jessie jackson demo picket...

aside from that?

anyone but obama.

obama is trying to cuckhold America, and his is succeeding.

obama is not stupid and to think that our collective enemies are stupid is the real arrogance of the matter not the false flag of going around apologizing for past behavior.

Want to "fix" America? PREACH American exceptionalism, American innovation, American projection of power, Justice, liberty and individual rights...

Want to have America WEALTHY? Preach American "put a boot in your ass" mentality...

Time to have a new American self awareness and a NEW "john wayne" disposition which says the rest of the world "kiss my ass"....

yep it's time get our arrogance back...
