The Mayans or Aztecs or whatever weren't the only ones warning about impending doom coming in 2012: This week, Willie warned in his Sunday column that Obama could be in some hot water before the next election if the economy doesn't pick up enough for the President to make the case that the stimulus plan worked. His prediction is loosely based on an informal survey he conducted during a Miami Conference last week, but he also says he was hanging out with Jeb Bush a lot, so take that with a grain of salt. Also a shot of tequila, because Jeb "speaks better Spanish than his brother speaks English" and everyone's Spanish is better when you're drinking tequila.

In other Willie Brown travel news: his flight from San Francisco to Ontario, CA was canceled due to weather, but the biggest disappointment seems to be that no one gave him peanuts for the cab ride back to the city.
