DrudgeReport has the headline “5 Days”. In five days we might be rid of Barack Obama and his enablers – DailyKooks, Big Media Praetorian Guard, Hopium Guzzlers, and Dimocratic Party officialdom.
The race might or might not be tight. What are you seeing in your political real estate section of the world? No doubt Obama continues to be his nasty self with attacks against Mitt Romney. No matter where you are from that is the Obama message. There’s a reason for this – Obama’s emptiness and stridency relates to one thing: jobs. Obama can’t run on his record so he attacks.
Obama has no record of merit to run on so he hopes he will be awarded a Nobel Prize from the American people for doing nothing. Obama is a show about nothing.
Obama’s latest blunder though gave Mitt Romney fodder for his closing statement in the form of a new Romney ad: Secretary of Business?
Not to be outdone the Obama Dimocrats prepared an ad of Obama’s achievements to date:
An echo of our many articles about the “Mistake in ’08” and the foolishness of Obama’s Situation Comedy coalition, comes regarding the in this assessment from National Journal on the current state of the race:
“Meanwhile, the Obama turnout machine isn’t quite as valuable in the more homogeneous battleground states — Iowa, Ohio, Wisconsin, and New Hampshire — that make up the president’s firewall. These states have older, whiter electorates. The name of the game for Democrats here is persuasion as much as mobilization. In Ohio, Obama’s campaign strategy is clear: making Romney’s opposition to the auto bailout a central part of the bid to hold onto enough working-class whites to win the state.
But it’s also becoming clear that it’s not just Ohio, Iowa, and Wisconsin that are looking winnable for Romney–it’s the entire swath of competitive Midwestern and Rust Belt states that share demographic similarities, and where Republicans made significant gains during the 2010 midterms. Obama holds a small lead in Ohio thanks to the auto bailout, but the issues driving the electorate in neighboring states are more favorable to Republicans.
The Obama campaign is on the air in Minnesota, and it sent former President Clinton to Minneapolis and Duluth to shore up his standing this week. That comes in the wake of a Minneapolis Star-Tribune poll showing Obama with a mere 3-point lead, 47 percent to 44 percent. Obama is bleeding support from working-class white voters upstate [sic] over his health care law and energy policies. Also worth remembering: Obama won Minnesota by a narrower margin in 2008 (55 percent of the vote) than he did Wisconsin (56 percent of the vote), which has long been considered a toss-up.
In Pennsylvania Romney’s debate performances narrowed his once-imposing deficit in the Philadelphia suburbs, and his campaign is making a play to turn the western part of the state Republican. The Romney campaign is up with an energy ad attacking Obama on coal and cap-and-trade, a message aimed at converting disaffected Democrats around the Pittsburgh media market. A Philadelphia Inquirer poll conducted last week showed Obama with a 49 percent to 43 percent lead, with GOP internal polling showing the race even tighter.
In Michigan, the Obama campaign just announced it was buying costly Detroit television for the final week of the campaign to counter a multimillion-dollar buy from Romney’s super PAC. Expect Obama to blast Romney on the auto bailout and Romney to criticize the president over his record on welfare, both issues particularly potent with blue-collar workers prevalent in the state. A Detroit News/WDIV poll out on Wednesday showed Obama’s lead down to 3 points, 48 percent to 45 percent, the narrowest it’s been in a while.
The election isn’t just coming down to Ohio. There’s plenty of evidence that, given Obama’s struggles with white working-class voters, he could face some unexpected headwinds in states that have been in the Democratic column during presidential years since at least 1988. Obama’s campaign is acknowledging as much with its late television buys and surrogate campaign stops. Romney is currently trailing in the aforementioned states by several points, but Obama is under the 50 percent mark. If undecided voters break to the challenger, all bets are off.“
Place your bets. Dick Morris says “Here Comes The Landslide” and he’s not talking about Obama.
For those afflicted by “Sandy” we hope all is returned to normalcy for you in the next few seconds. For those afflicted by Obama we’ll have to wait five more days.
