Picture of the Day: GOP Site Touts Jan. 2017 as 'Obama's Last Day'

Change direction GOP.png

If Republicans want to oust President Obama in the 2012, they'll need to think much more positively.

The homepage of the Republican National Committee's website, GOP.com, currently asks visitors to donate money to ensure the arrival "Obama's Last Day" -- cited at the very top of the page as Jan. 20, 2017, the month Obama will leave office if he wins reelection in 2012.

This is a questionable strategy for the RNC, and we're curious to see whether the party's newfound stab at farsightedness pays off. Jeb 2016!
