Do you think Obama will get reelected in 2012 or will a Republican candidate take the White House? Based on Obama's performance so far, would you vote for him when it comes time for reelection?

if he didnt have to trudge through the sh!te the idiotic members of the republican party put against him at every turn and decision then theis wouldnt be a doubt 
but since every decision he has made was underminded by questioning his religion, country of origin and allegiance it doesnt look like it as it looks as if he has made no progress

I hope not...  Makes me sad to say, since it was really a step forward to have anyone who isn't a white male as president ( not really a racist thing there for me at least, but I think it does show how racism is still ingrained in the psyche of this country...), but I don't think he was best qualified for the position, and rode his abstract ideas of hope into office...

Honestly, I don't think he will. I didn't originally vote for him, so I'm not terribly upset over it. There have been too many problems while he was in office though most were not his fault to blame. Part of being president is to take the fall of things you were not responsible for.

I wouldn't have a clue to be honest. I'd rather see how he handles the next few years, although I wouldn't be suprised if he did.  
Bush pulled it off and I'm not sure who on the GOP is going to be really as much of a challenge against him in re-election.

I certainly remember him needing extra security while running to be President, that and maybe a vague memory of people planning it out and him not showing up or something like that. It was a while ago though.

At the rate things are going with his whaning popularity I would say no... but you can never underestimated the political machine that is the democratic party. If they can drum up the same type of "support" they got in 08 then it won't be good for anyone who runs against him, but there is also the possibility that his own party won't nominate him again and then you might see two democrats on the ticket along with the republican and if that were to happen.... doubt it will in this day and age... it should make it easy for the republican.

Obama bashes fox news only because they are the only news to actually say something against obama, Msnbc rarely EVER says something against him. Oh he's whines about them often. Disrespects republicans(McCain during televised meeting)
Blames bush(didn't mind at first) for EVERYTHING, even things clearly under obama's watch. Mocks bush for katrina but he goofed more on the oil spill and didn't do anything for 50 days then refused help from the surrounding countries willing to lend support to contain the oil Until the like 70th day and only accepted minor help).
 
Pelosi ALWAYS TALKS ABOUT CHILDREN CRYING to prove a point, abc news showed a mexican american boy crying because his parents are forcing him to go back to mexico because they are "afraid" of the new law, every gay marriage issue shows a young teen crying how their parents can't get married and how this breaks their heart. The stimulus bill had commercials show parents and children crying to pass the bill. So its an obvious formula (not moronic you must not pay attention to what's screaming at you, so way to go)

Faux News has been out to get Barack since he was running to become President. And yes they have told large sums of complete bull!@#$ about him, despite their lovely fair and balanced logo. 
You should show a clip of the video of him disrespecting John McCain, because I'm thinking I know what your talking about and they where both laughing about it. 
  
Faux News was still blaming Clinton during the Bush adminitration and even dropped his name for the Oil spill. So that's 10 years of it being Clinton's fault because apparently Bush still didn't make an impact despite being president for 8 years.  
Then they have the nerve to say to our current President it's been 3 months, you can't keep blaming Bush. Faux News is garbage. 
 
But yes he's blaming Bush because after 8 years of ramming the country into the ground, it's certainly easy to blame him and he doesn't even blame him for everything.  
I lovehow the Right Wing is great at pretending he didn't do anything while this Oil Spill was happening. 
 

"Pelosi ALWAYS TALKS ABOUT CHILDREN CRYING to prove a point, abc news showed a mexican american boy crying because his parents are forcing him to go back to mexico because they are "afraid" of the new law, every gay marriage issue shows a young teen crying how their parents can't get married and how this breaks their heart.

You act like this is exclusive to Democrats. This has been a common thing for virtually any form or media and such to draw a connection with the viewer, listener or reader though other people as an example.  
So yes complaining about it is moronic, even though thats why I didn't call you moronic for. 
  
No one is making the claim that the entire Tea Party is racist and second theres a WHOLE lot more than just Nazi signs and hilter mustaches going on signs, clearly you don't even have a clue on that though. 

Just because theres no video sure as heck doesn't mean it didn't happen, especially since we outright now there are plenty of white supremacists in the Tea Party.  
I know how Faux News is big on protecting the party despite it not at all being difficult to find evidence of clear racism through said groups signs, what they say on tape and such.

I think that Obama has definitely been knocked off the pedestal of "hope" with the lack of progress on most fronts (although this was expected... groundwork had to be laid out before anything could happen), he's proven himself fallible. I voted for him. I think he has a lot on his plate and not enough time and/or resources to get to them all, and if he were re-elected, the same thing would likely be said, post 2012.
 
I'm going to make a terrible analogy, coming from someone who doesn't even like Football. Tony Dungy was the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (my home team) between the years of 1996 and 2002. When he started, the Bucs already had a reputation for being a losing team. Under his watch, however, the Bucs succeeded at last in making the playoffs, although they did lose. I don't want to go off on a tangent, but it should be known that the Glazers, who own the Bucs, are a bunch of greedy self-important [jerks] who convinced the city mayor to invest in a new stadium ($168.5 million, not counting the demolition of the former stadium), bought the property across the street (a beautiful mall where I had a lot of good childhood memories), turned it into a parking lot for their new stadium, bulldozed the mall, and then built an expensive headquarters in the very center of the parking lot. So back on topic, the Glazers found Tony Dungy wanting. Although he argued that the Bucs needed time, and would likely improve drastically in the next season, the Glazers publicly humiliated Dungy, firing him on national television with smiles plastered across their faces. Then came Jon Gruden. The Glazers hired him for the new season in 2002, and that year, he led the Bucs to win the Superbowl. Some people argued that he just had what it takes, however, in the following seasons, under Gruden's watch, the Bucs starting losing again... and again.... and again.
 
Do I think Obama will be reelected in 2012? I'm not entirely certain, but I'd like to think that the United States has the patience and wisdom to see things through. It would be a shame if his term was not only wasted, but completely undone by someone else lacking adequate respect and foresight.

I can understand people disliking said President, mainly for political differences, but in all honesty he has ways to go before he reaches Bush, who the world essentially thought was a moron.
