With each passing day it becomes more likely that come next January Barack Obama, Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum will be sworn in as the president for the next four years.
None of the above figure to be supportive of online gambling that would lead to legalization of sports betting. A look at the options, from worst to best:
3. Santorum. Ugh. Is he running for president or Pope? He's on record as opposing gambling, though if the longest of long shorts is elected, Sunday night church bingo probably would be safe.
2. Romney. He can't connect with voters and he changes his mind more than he changes his underwear. The best thing you could say about him is that even though he's on record as being against online gambling, with no core principles maybe he can be turned.
1. Obama. Did he order or even know about the DoJ Black Friday/Blue Monday indictments? And did he mandate the Dec. 23 easing of regulations regarding online poker and casino games? Who knows? He's not talking.
That's all, folks.
If you're a one-issue voter, Obama's mixed-message policies appear to be better than what the Republicans have to offer. In this instance, the devil you don't know could be a lot better than the devil(s) you do.
