#1 Short of de facto Romney-led electoral defeat this coming November, everything right now is holding steady + good, NOT necessarily great, for the Bammer + Re-election Campaign going into Summer 2012.
Iff thingys or trends hold, the only Probs I can see to screw up the Bammer this Summer + November
* US BUDGET COLLAPSE ANDOR NEW US, GLOBAL RECESSION OR DEPRESSION.
* FAILURE OF IRAN NUCLEAR TALKS, i.e. as per the Maxima, Minima limits of uranium enrichment by Iran for purposes of NucEnergy only.
* UN, US-LED MIL INTERVENTION IN ASSADIAN SYRIA, as Iran desires to protect both its Ally + its strategic access to the Med widout need of Suez Canal [KSA side].
IRAN FEAR OF KSA SIDE OF SUEZ CANAL + RED SEA CHANNEL = SHIA IRAN DOESN'T FORESEE ANY IMMEDIATE OR NEAR-TERM TO ITS REGIONAL, OWG CALIPHATE RIVALRY WID HOUSE OF SAUD = SUNNI ISLAM???
* PAK GOVT. COLLAPSE, as a consequence of severe US $$$ cutback due to failure in US/NATO-PAK negotiations to reopen the closed NATO Supply Routes, leading to possible Indo-Pak War = ultimately devols into Indo-China War???
* CHINA SHOOTING AT SOMEBODY(S) IN EAST ASIA.
