They are the same people who spent Friday denying that “not optimal” was not a big deal.
“Binder” –big deal. “Not optimal” –no deal at all. That’s the state of the Obama campaign: A nearly Orwellian effort at making some words matter and others disappear while facts are pushed aside It hasn’t worked. It won’t work..
Mitt Romney by contrast followed two very strong debate showings with a wonderful set of remarks at the Al Smith dinner, the third time in two weeks that he has reassured those just tuning into the presidential campaign that he will be a steady and reliable force for good in the Oval Office.
Romney was ready for his close up. This is the primary reasion behind his surge.
Go read it all. I like Hugh quite a lot. And I suspect his analysis is very close to being correct. However, this is not the time to let up. This is the time to double down and push harder.
The left is obsessing about binders and the other tiny little Obamantics the won offers instead of a real plan. Romney is looking downright presidential. But this is not the time to rest.
Obama offers up recycled leftist silliness from an avowed leftist rag and the media dutifully, gleefully repeats the latest talking point from Obama. Still thinking the public can’t tell that the media is swimming in Obama’s tank. This is the time to punch back twice as hard and carry this contest home.
In other words, don’t get cocky. Get working. Make the victory so big that they can’t cheat.
