Mark Davis is sitting in for Rush today… On the electability of Barack Obama…
Are we really going to be able to beat this guy? And, looking at things right now, one would say, sure. But we cannot be over-confident… it’s like having a 17-10 lead midway through the second quarter of a football game. You have no idea how the third and fourth quarters are gonna go… I don’t think President Obama is gonna do anything that makes everybody love him 20x more. I would have a hard time wondering what the October Surprise would be that would make everybody think “Wow this has been a great presidency!" So the only thing that maybe occurs to me is something either economic or militarily that makes us not want to change presidents. It’s kind of funny, I would never predict this, you never can tell, but when people sit around in bars and think about what could happen, like bombing an Iranian nuclear facility sometime around Halloween. If he does that I will flat out tell you he probably wins. Will he do that? [Laughs] One expects not… It appears that the only thing he really wants to do with Ahmadinejad is have him over for mint tea.
