See apparently Obama isn't the socialist savior they were promised. Some are even calling him Bush-lite. But that's what happens when you elect a guy who has only spent four year on the national level and is most famous for a few speeches; you're not really sure what you're going to get. So their answer: a Florida congressman who's hasn't even logged a year yet on the Hill, and is most famous for saying Republicans want us to "die quickly" and telling Dick Cheney to "STFU."
So, there are some that actually want this to literally happen, and there are others who just want the threat of a Grayson candidacy to make Obama move to the left.
"Look at it this way: in a race against Grayson, Obama is going to have to give an account of his first-term actions, and explain why he enabled Wall Street to continue screwing Main Street ...He could scare Obama a few steps to the left, which might result in a few progressive moves in Obama's second term."
"What do we have to gain by Alan Grayson running? At the very least, an incredible amount of pressure on Obama to stop pandering to the criminal thugs in the GOP and come back to his base.
What do we have to lose? Nothing"Of course, that would be a lot more effective if more than five people wanted to see Alan Grayson actually be president.
