Maybe Cameron would have been better prepared if he was also a lobbyist for the Games there.

Who was weaker? Mondale maybe, but thats about it. But that was more due to Reagan's strength than Mondale's weakness.

Obama's average approval ratings for his first term are the lowest of any president since Jimmy Carter. His biggest accomplishments on the domestic front are that the economy didn't fall off a cliff and the passage of a extremely divisive health care package. That is the definition of a weak candidate.

Doesn't matter if I was a fan or not. Was Dukakis a weak candidate? Personally I think he just got rolled up in a republican wave that lasted 12 years. And Bush senior was a strong candidate in 88.

As opposed to what? Tax cuts for the rich and an unpaid Medicare drug benefit? Simply hanging out during the Internet boom? Inspiring speeches while creating modern government deficit spending?

Not having the economy falling off a cliff is really not a bad thing.

You are talking about policies, and I agree with some aspects, disagree with others. But those are generally not the issues that make a candidate a strong candidate. Obama is a weak and vulnerable candidate. That is why the election is going to be very close. He may win, in fact as I have said before, he will likely win. But that doesn't mean he is a strong candidate, especially for an encumbent.

If Obama does indeed win, he will likely be the first winning encumbent to have a lower vote total in both the popular and electoral college in over a 100 years.

But didn't they ASK for the Olympics? No one forced it on them, for certain.
