2012 Advance


Recommended Posts

In coming weeks and months am going to start working on 2012 Advance scenario.... Base off my 2008 Advance... So I just want to get the ball rolling such as a discussion on who the Republican Candidates might be, issues, what you might like to see added in scenario that wasn't in the 2008 Advance... Etc I was thinking of replacing and combining the Iraq and Afghanistan issue and calling it Democracy in the middle East... changing the name of the Iran Issue to either Iran/North Korea or nuclear proliferation... I think health care Stance will need to be re-done to reference Obama Health Care law... I want to add an issue call Economy/unemployment but I don't know another issues I could either combine or take out any thought?

If you're doing a Democracy in the Middle East Issue, I'd also include Libya in it, as I don't think the US is done there, whatever Obama may claim. I'd also include a minor but potentially troublesome Democratic challenger like Alan Grayson or Alvin Greene.

yea that why i was just going to combine the three into one issues... instead of 3 independent issues for Libya, Afghanistan and Iraq... it make it easy where we don't have three issues taking up space for basically the same thing..... I was thinking of making kucinich that troublesome challenger but minor one cause he made alot noise over Libya and calling for impeachment

What about Ron Paul?

RAND Paul is much more likely

Add Gary Johnson to the mix, as well as Hermann Cain.

Obama Health Care should be Obamacare. Not so sure about Liby and Afghanistan/Iraq in the same categories. Maybe one War on Terror (Afghanistan and the like) and Middle East Uprisings as another issue.

There should be off-challengers for Obama, like Howard Dean and Dennis Kuchinic.

Yea a lot of this going off instinct and reading straw polls... does anyone know a site that will list all polls cause I hate going by just one poll i like to average them all out so get fair reading

Think your right about Donald trump he polling about 8-10% but so is Palin...

4 years of an Obama Administration have left supporters of the "Change" Team wondering what's different? Though some progress remains the economy is still sluggish (at best) and the dragged-out invasion of Libya only recently came to a close after 2 1/2 months of air strikes. Iraq? But President Obama remains fairly popular with a 50% approval rating. However conservatives are thirsting for a win. Will the rift in the GOP lead to 4 more years?

true i could put her 2ndtrie.... but i need one more third candidate to be listed in front runner status.... I don't think Palin is it... maybe donald and her could trade place but I see Donald support falling like a house card... right now it name recognition... which is a mile wide and a inch deep... I guess I could put him in the front runner but make him a weak candidate like I did Rudy in 2008
