The Republicans are in big trouble for several reasons.

Because of their wing-nut religious base, the candidate who can get nominated cannot win a general election (Palin, for example). Conversely, a candidate who might win a general election cannot get nominated (Jindal, despite his issues in LA, for instance).

Meanwhile, moderate Repubs were largely purged from Congress in the last election, leaving behind a lot who've been around since the Earth cooled and who support disastrous policies that look and smell like the Bush Administration's. I suspect their ideologically inspired rigidity is going to make them look like buffoons in the coming four years, out of step with what a majority of Americans want.

Unfortunately for us all, both Dems and Repubs are addicted to the pork that Angus and Keith mention, so that's kind of a wash in my view.

Finally, all Obama has to do is an okay job to get re-elected. If he does better than merely okay, and early signs are that he might, the Repubs won't stand a chance in 2012. Or to say it another way, if in four years if we're coming out of this current recession, Obama will get the credit whether he deserves it or not.

Of course, *anything* can happen politically in 4 years.
