Although I am not a U.S. voter, it looks like Obama will win in 2012 due to a combination of the good parts of his record and the apparent inability of the GOP to put forward a candidate who will be able to stuck into the bad parts of his record.
You may very well be right about the GOP candidate. Whoever it ends up being is going to have to tell the truth about the results of Obama's policies, without being afraid of being labeled a racist. John McCain failed to really attack Obama about what he believed and about his now-all-too-evident lack of experience in EVERYTHING.
There are no good parts of Obama's record. Between unemployment, stagnant and/or declining wages, gas prices, the housing market, the continuing decline of the dollar, there's nothing good that Obama can run on. His response (lack thereof) to natural disasters that have hit the U.S. is a total joke. Then there's the record deficits and a level of national debt... record numbers of college grads moving back in with Mom and Dad because there's nothing out there. You may also notice that over here, Obama doesn't even try to talk to grown ups any more. Most campaign stops are at colleges and universities, trying to convince the morons being schooled there that he's their guy. That's his only hope. Not that it won't work.
On the electoral map, there are a number of "red" (i.e. traditionally republican) states that went for Obama in 2008 that he will not win this time around (without massive voter fraud, but hey, he IS from Chicago). He ran on hope and the fact that he's kind of black (when he wants to be). Lots of people fell for it, but now their faced with the reality of what this guy has done to this country.
oops, sorry witty - now about the Palin movie... it might be interesting to see the contrasts between this movie and the Hollywood movie that's coming out about the 2008 campaign (well, that's what they SAY it's about but it's really about Palin). The name of that movie is "Game Change".
