If the Presidental Election Were Held Tomorrow, Who Would You Vote For?

With Romney nearly certain to get the GOP nomination, campaign season begins to heat up.

With decisive victories in Wisconsin, Maryland and Washington D.C., former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney appears to have the GOP nomination just about sown up.

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum is trailing in delegates and Romney has taken advantage of his surge forward to begin campaigning earnestly in Pennsylvania.

But analysts say that the slight decrease in unemployment and economic uptick will help keep President Barack Obama's approval rating high enough to get him re-elected.

The outcome of the election is up for grabs, but what do you think of our 44th president's chances of getting elected to a second term?

Political satirists from Mark Twain to Jon Stewart have a remarkable way of cutting through all the obfuscating rhetoric and getting to the truth of every matter - something that certainly doesn't go unnoticed by those in power who regularly appear on the shows of Stewart, Colbert, Maher, and Lettermann.

Hi Belleville Sentinel -- Given that Mark Twain had noted nearly 140 years ago that "...one of the first achievements of the government was to institute a ten-thousand-dollar agricultural fair to show off forty dollars' worth of pumpkins in," Twain may have been more a seer than a humorist. He was able to describe the foibles of the current administration so clearly.

Yes, the Tea Party just loves People of Color! You'll find more African-Americans and Latinos at an Osmond Family Reunion than you will at any Tea Party rally. Reminds me of when Trump stated during his Obama Birther debacle how he was a "friend of the Blacks." As Seth Meyers pointed out during a following SNL Weekend Update, "Unless Trump knows a white family named "The Blacks", I don't think so!"

Hi Bellville Sentinel -- Wasn't it Mark Twain who also said “It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.”
