Barack Obama WILL NOT Have A CREDIBLE Primary Opponent in 2012
Advertisements [?]
Sure, he may get a challenger who will pull in 3% of the vote, but he won't get a credible primary challenger in 2012. Just aint gonna happen. He's at 80% approve in his own party, and he's been over 80% since he took office.

For the factual based people, that means that HIS OWN PARTY highly approves of his presidency, and any challenger would need to get the entire remaining 20% and peel off 30% of his support. Again, THAT AINT GONNA HAPPEN.

So, please stop it with the fantasy posts about primary challenging Obama in 2012.

That is all.
