    “Think” or “want?” Two different questions. I’m not sure you will get the distinction on this forum.

    Yes I do. As I see it, there is a large number of GOP candidates, and some of them more extreme than others. While Bachmann and Perry are Tea Party backed, I don’t believe the Tea Party is strong enough to pull off the win. The only way I see the Republican party winning is with a more centrist candidate. The only one whom comes close to fitting such a bill is Mitt Romney (he can play the swing voters better than the Tea Party candidates). But, the Tea Party could have a real impact on whether he or someone else wins the primary. I am not sure people really care for Obama, but many in of the larger cities (Democratic strongholds), people view the Tea Party as insane, etc. So, I can see them doing anything to keep a Tea Party candidate from winning the 2012 Presidential election.

    Overall, I think many people are growing tired of the useless politicians, and are leaning towards a green party (Libertarian). Which will also greatly affect the election, because many of those people will vote for a candidate whom really has no chance.

    And do I want him to win…. well that would be a no. [=}=]

    As an outsider, I think Jeff’s analysis is pretty good (obviously ghostwritten by someone else :p ). My sense is that the Tea Party is splitting Republican-leaning Americans and this could allow your current president to slip back in.

    What I find particularly interesting from a Canadian perspective is the fact that many Canadians (but not all by any means) have an affinity for the U.S. Democrat Party. However, the Democrats are traditionally very protective when it comes to international trade which, of course, hurts our trading relationship with the U.S. So, although centrist Democrats in general may be more in line with some Canadian values, the fact remains that they are not an economic asset to our trade relationship. And, let’s not forget, the U.S. and Canada are each others’ largest trading partner by far.

    Hmm. Not sure I agree with that. Afterall, it was a Democrat that pushed NAFTA. [=}=]

    Not really true Jeff.

    On December 17, 1992, U.S. President George H. W. Bush, Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Mexican President Carlos Salinas, each responsible for spearheading and promoting the agreement, ceremonially signed the NAFTA agreement. The agreement then needed to be ratified by each nation’s legislative or parliamentary branch. By then, Democrats (Bill Clinton) and Liberals (Jean Chretien) had taken over the governments of the U.S. and Canada, respectively. :-B

    Clinton actually signed it into law in 1993. Bush ran out of time to sign it into law. It is true that Bush created the idea.

    As bas as I hate to say it, unless there is a very strong republican candidate step forward then he will be reelected, the only reason that he got elected in the first place is he was the lesser of two evils, the american voters hated hillary bad enough and was fed up with the repoublican party so he was the only one likely to win. And now that we are 14 trillion dollars in debt and sinking further, there really is no front runner on either side. #-o #-o

    I would tend to agree however spending time with my brother lately that is a lifelong democrat and who attended obama’s inaugural party in Denver, said he voted his heart in 2008 and 2012 he’s going to have to vote his pocketbook. He said he is hoping for a strong republican to surface that he can pull the lever for.

    I have been hearing more and more people say the same thing as your brother. I vote for who I think is going to do the best job for me. I also hate paying so much & so many taxes. [=}=]

    I wish I could say I’ve seen the same, or heard the same. The Democratic voters here, will always be Democratic voters. Some of the things that friends of mine say are just downright scary. There is only one strong Republican in my eyes, and I am afraid he is going to get beat in the primary by one of the Tea Party candidates.

    I hope not !!!! but it all depends on whats going on in nov. 2012 because americans only remember whats going on at the moment. If a big terrorist plot was uncovered in nov. or the stock market is going crazyin nov. he will get reelected if things are bad then he’s out. I bet all the illegal aliens he just gave a free pass to vote for him….woops….. I mean undocumented guest in country….sorry didn’t mean to offend. When it’s all said and done I am sure he will be known as the worst president in American history bar none!!!!
