Have faith in the Republicans, gt. If there is not a real issue, they can always make one up. We shall see.

You can count on that.

You may know the future for the presidential election, but I still say that we need to let the people have their say in a democratic election. If Pres. Obama loses, so be it. The people of America have spoken. If Pres. Obama wins, well .............. then I told you so. We shall see.

Re you biblical reference --

When Samuel was old he made his sons judges over Israel. In early Israel, there was never the pattern of judges being appointed by men, or of the office of judge being passed from father to son. Samuel was not right in appointing his sons judges over Israel.

His sons did not" walk in his ways" as we were taught in Hebrew School. This is why Samuel was wrong to appoint his sons as judges over Israel. These sons took to undertaking dishonest gains, took bribes, and perverted justice.

While it is was wise for the elders of Israel to reject Samuel’s sons as leaders, it was wrong for them to say, “Now make for us a king to judge us like all the nations.” I feel that the reason Israel wanted a king was wrong.

Gideon was once offered the throne over Israel. He refused it, saying “I will not rule over you, nor shall my son rule over you; the Lord shall rule over you.”

Shalom, mon ami.
Yes, but in their wisdom, the people demanded a KIng!

I figure Obama is in for a second term, despite the fact that his current low approval rating and the general poor condition of the economy would ordinarily work against him.

The US economy is finally starting to show some signs of life, and the Republicans are locked in a long drawn out leadership race. Their most electable leadership candidate thinks it is a good idea to strap a dog to the roof of his car and drive down the highway, and the others go downhill from there.

if the economy had continued to bounce along the bottom and Romney had won the primaries quickly and decisively, and run against Obama's economic record then I suspect the election would be his to lose. Instead we are seeing some "green shoots" in the economy, and the Republicans are all trying to appeal to the Tea Party base rather than the median voter.

Hillary and Obama had a long, drawn-out leadership battle, and Obama thought it was a good idea to attend the church of Jeremiah Wright.

"Green shoots" in the economy? Only when you discount the collapse in the number of people still in the U.S. job market, do job figures look good.

I don't think the reasons you've supplied are a slam dunk for the Prez.

Yes, but Pres. Obama is not a king. The US broke away from the king of England back on July 4th, 1776. Once again, read your American history.

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

I am referring only to the collective wisdom of the people--unless you are suggesting that the American people have greater wisdom than the people of Israel.
