It's a common thread with Hope & Change liberals that Obama plays chess while conservatives play checkers. In reality they are all playing a game more complicated than you can imagine, and then multiplied. The pawns on the right don't get that. They like simple answers, but they also like to pick the winners in advance, it's just that in the long run, it doesn't work that way. God isn't picking winners and losers, and if he did, they wouldn't be who the game would be rigged to benefit. Demons in Hell would be playing soccer with their heads.
In 2008, Obama routinely out maneuvered McCain-Palin and now he has four years as POTUS under his belt. (He's seen the real Zapruder film and the files from Roswell.) I'm kidding of course (not really), but the real point is that he has knowledge, resources, and infrastructure the rest of us can only dream of. More importantly he has some clue what to do with it. Republicans have always squandered those resources enriching their cronies.
This doesn't mean that I know for sure that Obama will win, or even that he is really on our side. I do know the people he opposes want to make us into serfs or worse. He does give me that little spark of hope every now and then, like when he does something he didn't need to do that might shift things in our favor.
If nothing else, he pisses off the traitors of our Democracy that I hate.
