Tide Shifts to Obama in Most Competitive States - ABC News

Quote:

"Months of paid media about Romney not caring about people, being out of touch ... it came into complete focus with Romney making the case against himself,"

Saw Michelle on C-Span last night, and now this - full length. Very, very nice.

President Obama beginning to show a bit of wear, I think. Thinner (too thin), grayer, a little more stooped I noticed when he was in Milwaukee yesterday (also saw him on C-Span). The job takes its toll. Hopefully the next term won't be as awful.

If its shifting it's probably more due to the fact those that are undecided are also on the fence with job stability. I wonder how they will feel if he gets re-elected and wall street starts to implode again. Make no mistake, if healthcare is rammed down corporate America with the inherent increase in overhead, and therefore cost, how many more layoffs will ensue?

Its really not a Republican or Democratic thing....it's a P&L thing. Those same CEO's will be there, for the most part, the day after whomever wins. Depending on how the house and/or senate turns out, there could be quite a bit of turmoil in the job ranks. No matter who takes the helm, jobs are priority one.

I just wonder how the media will treat him post election if he gets re-elected and the economy tanks...further. Going to be even harder to compete if the QE3 effect starts the inflation roller coaster going. Long term interest may stay stable but diluting the dollar further can only mean a run up on inflation and the cost for goods and services goes up.

How will the lower demand affect those on the stability bubble? Could have had a V8 comes to mind....

Unless Obama really FUBARs the debates, I see no way he will be beat. The path to 270 is almost not there for Romney in any scenario.

To state that Romney's past week was an unmitigated disaster for him would be to grossly understate the damage that has been done. He started the week by slandering 1/2 of the American public and ended it by releasing a tax return he had doctored to make it look like he owed more than he actually did - an act that he himself said would disqualify him to be president were he to do that. Romney is done, through; it's over. There is nothing he can say or do in the debates that will recover public opinion on his honesty and fitness to be president.

^Right, because Obama calling Republicans the "enemies" who needed to be "punished" was so much better than Romney's comment about almost half the country being on some sort of welfare, which is an inconvenient truth for Obama.

As far as Romney's tax returns, it doesn't matter what they look like or what he does, Dems will find fault and continue with the idea of punishing success and wealth (unless you're a Hollywood elitist of course).
