Nanepashemet Nod for President

President Obama has begun his campaign for re-election that will culminate next November.
~
Rather than screw around with you hapless and totally disoriented Peeps, I think I will take an unprecedented action and cut through any drama and delay by giving the coveted Nanepashemet endorsement to his opponent, Republican Mitt Romney.
~
Normally, the Nanepashemet Nod ends all speculation and secures the outcome in favor of the endorsed candidate, but in this case, I must reluctantly say.... Not so much.
~
I say this because I haven't forgotten the training that earned me a Bachelor of Arts Cum Laude in Political Science from that esteemed institution of higher learning... the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.    At that school, despite intensive partying and other hijinx, I was introduced to the hypothesis of the Harvard Professor, V.O. Key  (March 13, 1908 - October 4, 1963) who wrote one of my textbooks and explained that Presidential Elections have historically been determined by a few simple factors.


  • An Incumbent has the advantage.
  • People make their voting decision based upon how they personally feel about their own economic security... not what the candidate says or stands for.
  • If the Incumbent is running and the economy is on the upswing, the Incumbent will win.

So Peeps... even though I prefer Romney because of his intelligence and business acumen, I predict four more years of hope and change from the Obamanistas.  Yes... BO will win.
~
Why????   Do the math yourself !!
~
The War on Terror has run its course, and the cyclical nature of the economy has curative powers and will improve things as we come closer to November.
~
Since Obama is the incumbent, he will benefit from the good feeling that these trends will bring to the American Electorate.
~
Hence, BO continues his teleprompter based, remarkable hold on the Presidency despite his hazy history and complete lack of applicable experience.  I don't like it either, but it is what it is.
~
Course... the late Professor Key never knew about the power of the Nanepashemet Nod.
~
But I doubt he would have changed his hypothesis even if he was a Nanepashemet Peep.... which he obviously would have been.
  1. You, sir, are correct. BO will win in November, as we all lose. Can we even imagine what he might do this term with no thoughts of re-election?
