      voting for Obama no matter how pissed they are at him.

      Obama's problem is the Independents. To use Wisconsin as an example, in 2010 they turned from Democratic to Republican leaning and cost Russ Feingold his Senate seat.

      Scott Walker has turned a lot of those people back to the Democrats now and that's probably Obama's best hope for re-election:  Independents who don't like him end up voting for him as the lesser of two evils.

      We may still vote for Obama for all those reasons and because of the Supreme Court.

      We have SERIOUS problems in this country and for the most part he is willfully ignoring them. Not sure I can give him a pass in 2012.
