Fortunately for Obama, the Republicans will have to settle on a specific Republican.
Quite. President Obama has screwed up to the point that he can't possibly hope to win re-election. But that doesn't mean the Republicans won't have an opportunity to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Given the look of the field at the moment, and the Republicans' long history of offering theocrats and conservative tyrants while talking up their small-government past, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Obama Round Two.
