    Obama Will Win “Lesser of Two Evils” Election, Gerald Celente Predicts

    President Obama is battling falling approval ratings, an economy that hasn't meaningfully recovered and a Congress that is committed to thwarting all his political ambitions.

    72% of Americans say the U.S. economy is on the wrong course, according to the latest Bloomberg News poll. That same poll shows as many as 62% of Americans disapprove of Obama's handling of the economy and his approval ratings are down to a low of 45%.

    Ugly.

    However, odds are Obama will win re-election, says Gerald Celente publisher of the Trends Journal. Head-to-head, the President would defeat the top three GOP candidates - Mitt Romney, Gov. Rick Perry and Rep. Michele Bachmann, he says in the accompanying clip.

    Why?

    "He (Obama) will promise the people something while the [Republicans] are promising to take way from them," says Celente, referring to the GOP's focus on spending cuts and restructuring of entitlement programs. In other words, it's not a vote of confidence, it's more about voting for the "lesser of two evils."

    Celente thinks there are two dark horse candidates who might be able to beat Obama. Rep. Ron Paul, although he may lack the charisma needed in an era dominated by Hollywood-style campaigning. The other is former Utah governor John Huntsman, who Celente thinks has all the right credentials.

    However, it's way too early to make any lasting predictions, Celente admits. A lot can happen in the next 14 months. Remember way back to early May? Following Osama Bin Laden's killing, Obama's approval ratings spiked 6%. That bounce lasted 2-weeks.

    Is this really news? Talk about DUH! When it comes to "lesser of two evils" incumbent wins. History shows us this. This isn't ground-breaking news.

    Other than the misrepresentation, ie. "government promise people something", I agree, half heartedly. 

    The problem is in the representation of the government promising people something.  The reality is that the government is promising some people the possesions of other people.  That is the crime in Obama's platform.

    I agree, and did you notice the dark horse reference?  Ron Paul isn't going anywhere.

    Actually many other analysts look at Presidential incumbency quite differently.

    It is not the "lesser of two evils".  
    Voters first and most importantly decide whether the incumbent should be re-elected. If yes, case closed, challenger is irrelevant.
    If they decide "no", then the challenger only has to meet a minimum criteria of qualifications, to win.

    Huntsman is easily the most mainstream and probably electable of all the GOP candidates but in the current GOP he can't gain any traction.

    For very different reasons Romney or Perry would have a very difficult time in the general election.

    The fact that the progressives are so in love with Huntsman trells me not to even consider him.

    skeeter,

    A word of caution to prevent vast disppointment the day after the 2012 election.  I've read a number of articles by Dem talking heads over the past couple of months, they snicker about the TP candidates, worry about Romney but have the flip flopper covered, they know there will be a Paul contingent to the end just like the Naderites, they're convinced Newt is still toxic (I think he's done a good job cleaning himself up, but he doesn't want it enough), Cain will fade away shortly.  The one guy Axelrod, Carville and others admit that they are afraid of is Huntsman.  Huntsman appeals to the middle and that grup went to Obama in 2008.  He who wins the middle wins the seat.

    Huntsman has a distinguished career in foreign policy, was a successful business man, became a 2 term governor with approval numbers in the 70's, then the president asked and he served a Democratic President as the Ambassador to China where he could speak face to face in Mandarin with its leaders.  He's has a strong history as a fiscal conservative, but he's a social moderate on some issues; supports civil unions (he's a rights person) but is a strong prolife proponent.

    I for the life of me don't understand how a guy this qualified doesn't meet some purity test and is demonized for being Obama's Amb to China.  Does that mean if you're in the reserves and you get called up by Obama you should say no I won't serve, if you're a republican?

    Link?  Its my point of view on the Celente quote in Befools original post.

    In order for government to give somethign to some one, they have to take it from someone else.  That's basic physics.

    If Huntsman actually gets traction, the libs will fall out of love quickly, and quickly and conveniently feign shock that he "sold out" to the Tea Party to get the nomination.

    Partially right; the libs don't like him as he was a trader to the Obama Administration.  Yes if he gets traction they will paint him with the taint of TP conservatism or try to atleast.

    On another point Romney stated today that he would look for someone with Cheney's skill set for VP; what the he77 is he thinking.  is he trying to find reasons for the left to attack him and make him even less appealing to the middle that he is searching for.  Well possibly having the left attack would improve his popularity with TP and conservatives.
