Dumb Analysis of Political Landscape

AMERICAblog News: The one who primaries Obama will be the next Democratic president:
"In Isaac Asimov’s Foundation, a far-sighted scientist can see that the Galactic Empire is crumbling and is to be followed by a thirty-thousand-year-long dark age, but with the right steps, the darkness can be limited to only a thousand years. There is probably no saving an Obama Presidency that stubbornly refuses to save the country and itself. There may even be no way of preventing the Republicans from taking the White House. But conducted properly, a primary challenge now can result in victory: if not in 2012, then in 2016."

I have to wonder if the people that sincerely think this kind of thing have paid any attention to what the GOP field looks like. Any reasonable reading of the polls shows that independents are running away from the leading GOP contenders. It is going to be necessary to be very right wing and perhaps borderline crazy to win the GOP nomination in 2012 and that just ain't where America lives.

Perhaps it is time for the PUMAs (let's face it, that is who this group is) to get their heads out of their asses and watch what the other side is doing a little bit. Sometimes it isn't all about our side.

The author does get points for the Asimov reference.
