President Obama Reelection Roadmap

I’m not seeing it anymore. I feel like the 2012 Republican nomination process has provided the blueprint / roadmap for the reelection of our current President, Barack Obama.

ok.. I’ve seen enough Republican tomfoolery to drop my overall prediction for how the 2012 Presidential election is going to go. >:D

As far as my predictions for New Hampshire, I was right that Romney was going to win (everybody knew that). I had hoped that Huntsman would edge out Paul, but he didn’t. I had thought that Santorum would be ahead of Gingrich, but he wasn’t. Perry was at the bottom, where he should have been, since he didn’t even campaign in New Hampshire, and Bachmann got 343 votes, even though she already dropped out of the race.

Here’s what I think is going to happen, going forward, which should result in the reelection of President Obama: Continue reading “President Obama Reelection Roadmap”

2012 New Hampshire Republican Primary Predictions

Today, the Republicans in New Hampshire are going to make their decision about which candidate they’d like to see attempt to defeat President Barack Obama in the 2012 general election.

Here’s how I think it will turn out:

Today, the Republicans in New Hampshire are going to make their decision about which candidate they’d like to see attempt to defeat President Barack Obama in the 2012 general election.

Here’s how I think it will turn out:

  1. Romney
  2. Huntsman
  3. Paul
  4. Santorum
  5. Gingrich
  6. Edit: Buddy Roemer
  7. Perry
  8. Cain
  9. Bachmann

I know Cain and Bachmann are kaput already. I’m pretty sure they both qualified for this primary before they exited the race, so they’ll probably have a few votes each. Cain had ~58 votes in Iowa, and he wasn’t even there. Continue reading “2012 New Hampshire Republican Primary Predictions”

What Had Happened Was…

I had predicted Paul, Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Bachmann, Huntsman, Cain, so the top 4 got jumbled and the bottom four were correct.

Cain was going to be last, because he’s out of the race now, but he had qualified for Iowa before he dropped out. Continue reading “2012 Iowa Caucus Results”

Brokered Conventions

I told you from the beginning that this cycle’s selection of Republican candidates is an absolute clown show, to put it kindly.

I also asked two main questions. The first one was “Where are the broke (poor) Republicans?”. The second was “How come none of the better Republicans (Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, etc) want to run, if they think it’s going to be so easy to defeat President Obama in 2012?”.

I was previously done talking about this tomfoolery, but the last few days, the pundits have been talking about something they hadn’t mentioned this entire time…

Done With Politics

The point of the nomination process is *NOT* to send your best and brightest, but rather to send whomever is actually WILLING TO RUN, and whomever has enough money to stay in the race.

That sucks. That’s not interesting. That’s not American Exceptionalism.

I know most of y’all tune in to BillCammack.com to listen to me talk yang about women & dating, but I’ve been preoccupied recently with the clown show known as United States Politics.

I’m over it now, so we’ll be returning to our regularly-scheduled programming.. joined in progress.

What had HAPPENED was…

Why Did I Bother?

Obama vs. Romney 2012

I say that there is absolutely no way that the Republicans will be sending anyone but Romney to the big dance.

To be clear, Romney was always the only quasi-viable candidate that the Republicans fielded this cycle.

All these surges in the polls that you’ve seen (if you’ve been paying attention to this stuff at all) are not votes for individual candidates.. They’re votes *AGAINST* Romney.

There are only two choices here.. Romney and Not-Romney.

Republican Debate

Bloomberg Television and Charlie Rose made an interesting decision last night, by choosing to focus the entire Republican candidate debate on economic issues.

[Disclosure: I’ve edited video for Bloomberg Television, Charlie Rose, ABC and Fox News. www.linkedin.com/in/billcammack]

This was interesting because the candidates don’t have 90 minutes worth of things to say about the economy or jobs.

Of course, Herman Cain talked about his 999 plan, which Michele Bachmann snapped on him with something like “Turn those numbers over, and the devil is in the details”, indicating that if you flip it, it becomes 666: Continue reading “Obama vs. Romney 2012”

You’re Going To Have To Debate President Obama

I still say the Republicans haven’t fielded their real Presidential Candidates yet, and they’re using the current set as bait, to see how the Democrats treat them and how their ideas are received by the American public.

The names I mentioned a long time ago, Chris Christie and Paul Ryan are popping up more and more frequently on the talk shows, while the Republican pundits look and sound less and less confident of their chances to defeat President Obama in the upcoming election, as well they should.

I had wanted to talk about specifics about last night’s Google / Fox News debate, but the candidates’ commentary and behavior was redundant, so I’m just going to keep this very simple, so simpletons can understand this.

Whomever the Republicans send to the big dance is GOING. TO. HAVE. TO. DEBATE. BARACK. OBAMA. Continue reading “You’re Going To Have To Debate President Obama”

Continued from Part 01 and Part 02

Jon Huntsman

If it were up to me, which, of course, it isn’t.. I’d send Jon Huntsman to attempt to defeat President Obama in the next election.

IMO, he carries himself Presidentially, which makes sense, since he served in the administrations of four United States presidents… Something’s gotta rub off, right? >:D Continue reading “Republican GOP Presidential Candidate Debate 2011 [Part 03]”

Republican GOP Presidential Candidate Debate 2011 [Part 02]

Continued from Part 01

I had wanted to do a play-by-play breakdown of what had happened at the Republican Candidate Debate, but I didn’t complete it before President Obama’s speech, and now I have different things to discuss.

Rick Santorum

I hadn’t been aware that he was running. I had heard his name around the time of the Iowa Straw Poll, but since Michele Bachman came in first and Ron Paul came in second and Tim Pawlenty quit the race entirely, I had figured that everyone behind Pawlenty (4th place and down) would bounce as well.

Republican GOP Presidential Candidate Debate 2011 [Part 01]

The first Republican GOP (“Grand Old Party”) Presidential Candidate Debate of the 2011 season aired last night.

I wouldn’t normally… ok.. I have never watched something like this in my entire life, because I don’t care. Ultimately, there will be a Republican selected to run against President Obama, who will win or lose. That’s how Presidential elections go in the USA.

Hail Mary

I’m interested this time because I became interested in what the Republican plan for 2012 was going to be the day I found out they selected Sarah Palin to attempt to become Vice President of the United States of America, running with John McCain.
