Dear Veloci, What you don't understand is that deep down, he's not only shallow, he IS an idiot.

Velociworld: I Call "No Go"
I am increasingly disposed to the notion that Obama will not run again in 2012. He'll pull an LBJ. Why? Well, why should he? The world is in turmoil, he has no answers, nor does he seek any. He fancied this a backslapping job. Surrounded by sycophants, and the world's most incredible perquisites. It is that, but it is so much more. More than he reckoned upon. Obama can regretfully choose not to run, and his immediate benefits (not only as of January 2013, but considerably before) will kick in. He will pretend to run this month, and exit gracefully just prior to the New Hampshire primaries. Win-fucking-win. A new book, millions upon millions on the speaking tour. Actually, he'd be an idiot to run again.

Your Say

Sir, you underestimate his narcissism and ego, a very deadly combination.

I beleive you all underestimate his penchant for taking his ball and going home when he's getting his feelings hurt.

You are misunderstanding him. He wanted all the trappings of the presidency - the pomp and circumstance, the big house, the jet the servants, guards - all of that. He just never wanted to actually do the work of the presidency.

It is dangerous to confuse the two.

His goal is the "fundamental transformation of America" and the punishment of the white race for its real and imagined (but mostly imagined) sins. He's not finished yet.

He still has a 43-45% approval rating despite his depredations of the past two years. That means that almost half of the American public is still willing to give him a pass because of his race, or worse yet, agrees with him.

The media is all in at this point. They will continue to cover for him no matter how bad it gets; and work to demonize his Republican opponent, no matter who it is.

All it will take is propaganda and the right kind of crisis to stampede a few percent of ignorant, frightened "undecided" voters his way. A trivial matter.
