Chicago Tribune: Obama should step down from 2012 election & let Hilary Run

Why Obama should withdraw

Steve Chapman is a Tribune columnist



September 18, 2011

When Ronald Reagan ran for re-election in 1984, his slogan was "Morning in America." For Barack Obama, it's more like midnight in a coal mine.

The sputtering economy is about to stall out, unemployment is high, his jobs program may not pass, foreclosures are rampant and the poor guy can't even sneak a cigarette.

His approval rating is at its lowest level ever. His party just lost two House elections — one in a district it had held for 88 consecutive years. He's staked his future on the jobs bill, which most Americans don't think would work.

The vultures are starting to circle. Former White House spokesman Bill Burton said that unless Obama can rally the Democratic base, which is disillusioned with him, "it's going to be impossible for the president to win." Democratic consultant James Carville had one word of advice for Obama: "Panic."

But there is good news for the president. I checked the Constitution, and he is under no compulsion to run for re-election. He can scrap the campaign, bag the fundraising calls and never watch another Republican debate as long as he's willing to vacate the premises by Jan. 20, 2013.

That might be the sensible thing to do. It's hard for a president to win a second term when unemployment is painfully high. If the economy were in full rebound mode, Obama might win anyway. But it isn't, and it may fall into a second recession — in which case voters will decide his middle name is Hoover, not Hussein. Why not leave of his own volition instead of waiting to get the ax?

Good article - you can read the rest here:

It would be amazing if Cheney hadn't already laid the groundwork for this bombshell last week.

Today in a yahoo article Bill was saying Dick was up to election mischief.

Gosh aren't we all having a good time Jhikpghf

But, what if Obama won't step aside. They going to make him go hunting with Dick Cheney?

You know - maybe by saying that the other day it was kind of a veiled threat. I don't know. But it was WEIRD.

Anybody think he'll quietly step aside? I don't think his ego will let him and the only way is that others will exert very real pressure.

If the Dems put up a viable candidate, it means that the economy will be in the toilet for another four years. The only time a Dem is allowed to win is when everyone else doesn't want it.

If he doesn't do the right thing, by not running again, I hope the Dems primary him. It would be a great rally for the base. They are slowly starting to admit that he is a complete failure.

My views stand as more of a moderate Republican, a cafeteria conservative. We need a good fiscal policy and jobs.

I'm kind of shocked that I agree with Paul Ryan's idea to put the unemployed to work. Personally, I think the guy is a dick. But as someone who is unemployed and have two useless masters degrees, I just want to get up every morning knowing I have something to do (and an income.)

Angry Birds just pisses me off.

the economy tanked under Bush and it continued to tank under Obama.

It will tank under the next goon too.

But keep hoping for a savior.
