CHICAGO (AP) Six weeks from Election Day, President Barack Obama's campaign has momentum and a big case of nerves.
Top advisers are both relishing in Obama's edge in key battleground state polling and warning it can change in an instant. They're wary of the many factors that still could derail the Democrat's campaign, from simmering tensions in the Middle East to the three high-stakes presidential debates. They're worried, too, about a flood of negative advertisements from Republican-leaning outside groups and potential complacency among Democratic voters and volunteers who think the race is a lock for Obama.
Also weighing on them: unforeseen domestic or international events that can shake up a close race in the homestretch.
"I can only worry about what I can control," says Jim Messina, Obama's campaign manager.
For now, that means the overall campaign strategy.
Yet, even there, Obama's team is being careful: the Democrat is considering making a late play for traditionally Republican Arizona either to win it or to force rival Mitt Romney to spend money to protect GOP turf but advisers are weighing the potential that a move like that could backfire by leaving fewer resources for more competitive states.

The Pravda news services are going gangbusters today. I’ve never seen so many headlines that are little more than cheer leading as I have today.
It’s like Reagan all over again.. except with a crap economy.
If the Dims believe they can take AZ they sunk to a new level of stupid. Yes spend money there OBots.
Wow, the press sometimes write as if they officially REPRESENT the Obama camp, instead of merely being biased for it. The liberal media is committing harakiri during the last 4 years of Obama, and their biggest asset (convincing people that they are not biased so that they would believe the BS they throw out there) is in tatters.
Another butt-kissing AP Obama sycophant journalist, Julie Pace, Associated Press White House reporter, say no more, say no more ...
AP on Sept. 10: ‘It Will Be a Rare Day’ When National Security or Terrorism Will Be a ‘Center of Attention’

“On September 10, in a writeup which should qualify them for immediate entry into the Journalistm Hall of Shame http://www.wmbfnews.com/story/19505994/911-attacks-play-little-role-in-presidential-race
the Associated Press’s Julie Pace and three other assisting reporters, acting as virtual stenographers for the Obama administration and water-carriers for his reelection campaign, declared that “It will be a rare day on the campaign when terrorism, or national security for that matter, will be a center of attention,” while insisting that Obama has the presumptive upper hand in such matters.”
