“Its a long way to November, but this is a good sign. Obamas recent actions are backfiring.”
Aside from increasingly strident negative and attack advertising, my gut says Obama will promote more and more insanely extreme positions as he desperately tries to energize and shore up his shrinking “core” base, as well as desperately trying to look like he’s in touch with a larger part of the voter base.
I think that these increasingly extreme and insincere positions will cause more and more undecided and wavering voters to see Obama as insincere, out of touch, desperate, extreme, and not a good choice at all to continue as President for four more years.
As much as we (myself included) do not like Romney, I think the alphabet network and bird-cage-liner press propagandists will have a very difficult time painting Romney as an extremist. And, almost any foible that they can think up to smear Romney with (flip-flopping, etc.), their boy Obama has done the same thing, only worse.
Some have tried to paint Romney as a committed liberal in Republican guise, but I see him as a political weathervane who doesn’t feel stronly about social issues one way or the other. He’s a phony, but the United States can survive him. I’m not sure that it can survive a second Obama term.
