if the economy is still in the shitter well into 2011 he's fucking toast. i still won't really say he did a bad job though, he inherited a big bucket of shit from the worst president in american history
i won't be surprised if he loses re-election because the economy is still bad or something in 2012 and we have another carter/reagan thing
then i'll just leave the country. it'll be completely lost at that point.
I think that unless the economy gets significantly worse, Obama still has a very good chance of winning in 2012. Obama has done a great deal of good in some other areas and additionally, I think the Democrats will be able to paint the GOP as out of touch, obstructionist ideologues for working against Obama from day 1.
