This will be a brief blog because I'm laughing too hard to type.
Having totally discredited himself on foreign diplomacy during his summer trip abroad - by insulting every country he encountered - Romney didn't learn to leave it alone. Instead he has jumped in on the Libya mess and disgraced himself to an even worse degree. Hoping to capitalize politically on our country's travail, he instead seems like the guy who panics when something happens. He's John McCann flapping around with his head off when the Crash began. The contrast with Obama - so cool during the raid on Bin Laden - is stark.
The second wound Romney has just suffered comes from Fox News. Its new poll shows Obama up by five points over the Nowhere Man. It also answers Romney's question about "are you better off?" More accurately, it tells us what the voters' answer is: 42% say "Yes"; 15% say "Same". Thus a clear majority reject the Romney contention that Obama has made things worse. Romney's entire campaign message just died. As I wrote last week, "It Is NOT the Economy, Stupid!" (Oh, it's lovely to be right once in a while.)
And Obama's job approval? Fox says it's now 50%. That is the highest it's been for a long, long time in anybody's poll.
Fifty per cent is always a nice number. Because it's so close to fifty-one. And fifty-one per cent means EVERYTHING!
Enjoy the moment!
Neither wind nor rain nor snow nor sleet will make us forget about the tax returns, Mitt. Nor is the media forgetting them. What about just hand them over? You know the song? "Let the sunshine in....."
