One Big Advantage Republican Pres Candidate will have over Obama (the GOP's Catch-22)

The Republican candidate for Pres. can point out that he won't have Republicans fighting everything he tries to do. Not that any Republican candidate will do anything constructive to help the country (their objective is to set up a Corporate Feudalist system), but this is the Republican promise (i.e. threat) of the Politics of Destruction: Don't elect us and we will do everything we can to keep your President from getting ANYTHING done (look at our record!). They will fight to continue this Republican Dystopia. Elect us and we won't fight passage of every constructive bill presented to Congress (of course, with them in control only senseless, destructive bills would be offered, so it's the worst kind of Catch-22 we could be confronted with).

2. put another way -- democrats make a far better "loyal opposition" than republicans do.

sure, democrats obstruct a little, but only as leverage to get a tiny say in the proceedings.
republicans believe in obstruction in order to blame democrats for the logjam.

3. depends on the GOP nominee

 

if it's Romney, I think Obama easily coasts to victory

if it's Paul... Obama's in trouble, big trouble. Paul is not vulnerable to any of the arguments Obama is queuing up against Romney.
