    No need to waste time talking, as the odds of a second term are pretty slim. Only if the GOP mounts a candidate that is unacceptable to the public, will Obama win a second term.

    What is there to talk about? He's running in 2012. We all knew he was running the minute he was sworn in. There is no story here.

    Barack Obama has been opposed since February 2009, less than 1 month after he took office. This opposition wasn't caused by a rejection of his policies; he hadn't done much in the 1st few weeks of his term. So much of the anti-Obama energy comes from those that think they DESERVE to be in power and that he does not. It is UNPRINCIPLED and not rooted in a objective critique of his vision, his effectiveness, his performance against the natural and "man-made" obstacles that have been put in his way.

    I support the President of the United States. I hope for the sake of the American Dream, Obama serves through 2016.
