The Race for President

I watched the GOP debate Saturday night and have been giving this some thought. Each Republican debate is becoming more like some kind of reality TV episode. I notice Jon Huntsman doesn't even bother showing up anymore. It looks like the "wingnuts" now predominate the Grand Old Party. Come November, 2012, they may have a rude awakening. Most Americans don't go in for the "crazy talk" and don't believe their lies about Obama etc. Despite the economy, Obama might easily win re-election--it always comes down to a choice between two candidates. Americans continue to personally like President Obama and his family. Contrast the spectacle being played out in the Republican race against this snapshot of the President:

Barack Obama: The Obama Presidency. Minute by Minute | POLITICO44 - POLITICO.com: Sunday church (12/11/11 1:46 PM)--"The Obamas attended services at the nearby St. John's Episcopal Church. The first family made a short walk to the church shortly after 11 a.m. The Rev. Dr. Luis Leon delivered a sermon on John the Baptist. The Obamas took communion shortly after noon and walked back through Lafayette Park to the White House."

Doesn't exactly fit the picture of a radical islamist socialist, does it? Bottom line: Americans want somebody they can trust in the Presidency--someone who's sane, steady, and sober-minded.
