Why will the republicans win in 2008?

Thoughts?

I believe Iraq may have turned the corner and if this is true, it puts the Republicans on solid ground leaving the democrats with a candidate that is opposed to the war.

I can't see a Republican winning. As I've stated before, they're similar in weaknesses to the Dems of '04.

Not the point of the thread. Do you have an issue, or see them winning and how.

Personnaly, I think Iraq may push McCain right up there.

Unless something drastically changes i think this could very well be true.

His ad that is currently running kicks ass.

It is not an attack ad. It is about him period, and about making unpopular decisions.

If I did not feel he had sold out to the right, I may very well be jumping on his bandwagon. But my heart says he has overpandered.

No I don't see any way they can win. The public doesn't care about Iraq anymore, which helps neither party at this point. The Republicans have no domestic issue that will push them over the top.

They only way I can see them winning is if there is another terrorist attack on mainland US before the election (heaven forbid) or the elections are fixed or they dig up some truly scandalous stuff on whoever the Dem candidate is. That's pretty much it.

There's a difference between pandering to say, southerners v. northerners and Jerry Falwell and the Bob Jones university...

Because I'll likely be voting for a democrat and my track record sucks.

I guess it causes me to question how badly he wants it. I loved the maverick and I hated what they did to him, his wife, and his child in 2000.

Now he has been kissing their asses. I do not have that in me, and I wonder what it takes to become that person. Maybe not understanding it causes me to distrust it.

They won't be winning because Barack Obama is a Democrat.

They won't win because even if Iraq turns into Las Vegas overnight, their watch still fucked up the current housing situation and that will be more real to the American people over the next 10 months than Iraq.

I think the Republicans will win because I don't see any of the Democratic front runners being able to compete in the general election. We haven't even begun to see the kind of ugliness that's going to come out against say, Clinton, when the Republican campaign turns it full wrath against it's Dem opponent.

This says a lot more about my cynicism and perhaps arrogant view of the intellect of the American electorate (though to be frank, I have to hold up the last two presidential elections as Exhibit A and the continuing popularity of Bill O'Reilly and his ilk to justify such arrogance) than it does about the actual worth of the candidates.

I hope that I'm proved totally wrong. And I will joyfully eat my words.
