Skip to comments.Between the Lines: By Mark Halperin (Democrats now believe 0bama could lose)

With five months until Election Day, Barack Obama faces a grim new reality: Republicans now believe Mitt Romney can win, and Democrats believe Obama can lose ... Last week's anemic job-creation and economic-growth data was sandwiched between two Bill Clinton specials: in one television interview, the 42nd President lauded Romney's business record as "sterling"; in another, he veered from the Obama line on the extension of Bush-era tax cuts ... The failure to unseat Wisconsin's Republican governor Scott Walker in a recall election was another bad sign for Democrats since it will rev up conservatives nationwide, including the kind of millionaires who gave big bucks to Walker's effort ... Veteran Democratic strategists from previous presidential bids and on Capitol Hill now wonder if the Obama re-election crew is working with the right message ... The White House remains on a rough political trajectory, with a potentially adverse Supreme Court decision on the Obama health care law looming, additional bad economic news from Europe coming and more worrisome polling pending ... Another danger for the President: the media freak show. Stalking that circus' center ring is Matt Drudge, whose caustic website continues to help drive the news cycle with an emphasis on negative, mocking items about Obama and Vice President Joe Biden and their wives. The latest sign of Drudge's potency: Ed Klein, the author of the virulently anti-Obama book The Amateur, was barred from major TV appearances and mostly ignored by the mainstream media, but the book's prominence on Drudge's website propelled it to the No. 1 slot on the New York Times nonfiction list.

The word is “will” lose.
The President just hit Los Angeles today for another fund raiser. Several planes were detained for invading “his” airspace.
Notice how it’s never HIM invading our airspace - he’s not interrupting LA air craft travel, citizens trying to get to work or back on the 405/Wilshire...
We’re really getting sick of the invasion/disruption out here in Los Angeles thanks to WH fundraising........
Mitt is the stale ham sandwich on moldy bread at the greasy spoon.
Barack is the well fermented turd mixed with rotten lutefisk sitting on a Superfund site.
The sandwich walks away with the vote, but it is to wonder why America has such an abysmal set of viable choices this year. The tea party needs to brew better and more coordinated stuff. Protest votes in the main election are too late and won’t even be well coordinated. Didn’t even Perot show up earlier than this in the election cycle?
So, why doesn’t the GOPe realize that ANY Conservative can win this ~ only Mitt Romney has a problem beating Obama.
The media over the last twenty years has succeeded beyond its wildest dreams in ensuring that all conservatives are subjected to intense and repeated anal exams, while liberals are given a free pass. Who in the right mind would tolerate that kind of crap for himself, let alone the psychological rape of his family?It is incredible that any conservative even steps forward.
Till we wipe these liberal swine off the radar screen in the November election, and till conservatives can actually come out into a cleaner USA, we will not be able to field quality people on the conservative side. Roger Staubach, Adm Boby Inman,and people of that stature will not put their families through the hell that the liberals in the media have orchestrated. That is the great pity for the USA.
Yep, an excellent case in point is Sarah Palin. I can well understand why she didn't run for President after all the crap they put her though during her VP run and after, continuing right up to today, but not as heavy as it would have been had she run for office.
