Mark Davis is filling in for Rush today… On President Obama’s re-election prospects…

I’m not gonna sit here in October of ’11 and tell you that it’s a definite 10-point Republican win in 2012. But, that having been said, right now, this President – who did us the favor, did us the favor of telling us what he was going to do, and then did it – I have to tell you, you can blister President Obama for a lot of things, but the usual politician thing of campaigning one way and governing another? That’s the problem with this guy. He’s governing exactly as he campaigned. His ideas were bad in the campaign, and they’re horrible in actual practice. And there are tons of voters – independent voters – who gave him the Presidency, who now have an enormous case of buyer’s remorse. These voters are there, to be lured, back into the Republican camp. And it seems that every day of actual Obama governance makes that job a little easier. But we can never be lazy. We can never be overconfident. We’ve gotta put up a good candidate, an upbeat unapologetic conservative, who can take it to this President on a debate stage and return him to private life.
