Cocky, Arrogant, Elitist, Liar, Coward...No, Not Obama...Cheney
"I think 2010 is going to be a phenomenal year for the conservative cause," Cheney said to raucous applause from the conservative audience. "And I think that Barack Obama is a one-term president." --Feb 18, 2010

"I think they're in the last throes, if you will, of the insurgency." -- on the Iraq June 20, 2005

It is interesting to note that the same stuff being said about Obama was said about Clinton and before that, Reagan. Both went on to win re election by landslides, despite taking hits in Congress, two years before in the mid term elections.
The corporate controlled mainstream media, the tea baggers, and CPAC conservatives would do well to take note that even at their strongest levels, the GOP as constituted today, will never amount to more than 25% of the voting population.
The sleeping giant in this argument is the base that only wakes up at election time. Obama proved it in 2008.
The polls never have and still don't take into account the America that is simply sitting back an watching, and waiting.
Those who take their cues from Facebook and the blogs....need to look past the big popular blogs or the pages of the rich and famous...the people who vote are out there and they are talking..
And what they are talking about is not what Cheney, and Sarah, and Mitt and Tim and Eric and John and Mitch want to hear...If the election were held today...
Obama would still win in a landslide...take that to the bank...
