You cannot let sleeping dogs lie - not when those dogs are the economy, gasoline prices, student loan debt and Colombian hookers.
President Barack Obama has the political fight of his life looming if Mitt Romney can convince American voters they'd be better off with a Mormon in the White House. Now I have nothing against Mormons, that's why we're recognizing the manatee in the room straightaway. The fact that JFK was Roman Catholic probably cost him more than a few votes, but he still made it to the top in spite of religious prejudice.
The November US Presidential election is 6 months away. SIX SHORT MONTHS. Now, a lot can happen in that amount of time. For now we just have to see how things play out. I wouldn't even venture a guess today as to who has a better chance, Obama or challenger Romney. Keep your eye on gas prices, which are now going down slightly. I remember the last election the price at the pumps was way down during October. Gas is the #1 economic driver (I don't care what the "experts" say) and the closer the price gets to $4.50 a gallon, the better things get for Mitt Romney, and should the price rise above $4.50, he is a shoo-in!
What if gas sinks below $4? Hmmmmmm... let's say down to $3.75... now it's Obama with the edge... at $3.19 the President may be unbeatable... $2.99 and below it's Obama by a landslide!
This is regardless of what happens with the student loans, the hookers, and everything else. Hang on for an interesting ride!
