52. A rusty doornob could beat the current field of GOP idiots
Yet remember, Shrub won because people related to his good ol boy stupidity.

The economy is a big drag on his re-election. Do I think he will win? Probably, but I think it will be a much tougher contest then in 08 --- no matter how ridiculous the GOP candidate is.

Every point helps --- so I hope he does get more animated in 2012. :)
