    In the Presidential election of 2012 Republicans and Independents will question Obama's competency. Democrats, knowing that Obama's lack of competence (incompetence) is a valid issue, won't defend Obama. Instead they'll throw out the 'Republicans are racists' race-card.

    That's gonna be ugly!
