While all eyes are on the Wisconsin recall tonite, and no declared winner yet, am going to have to say how slow DC moves in recognizing Mitt Romney is more likely than not to win the Presidency. Unsurprisingly, most of official Washington is relatively oblivious to the unfolding dynamic.
When Obama senior campaign adviser David Axelrod showed up in Boston to lead the thrashing of Mitt Romney, this was reminiscent of the Bush/Quayle ’92 campaign — which dispatched a team to Little Rock to trash Bill Clinton’s Arkansas record.
Unfortunately, I was there, and one of those in charge (to my chagrin).
It didn’t work then, and it won’t work now.
The only issue is jobs and economic leadership.
Barack Obama will likely take his place along side George H.W. Bush as a one term president. The current President, like Bush, is slowly sinking into the quicksand caused by poor economic stewardship.
Plain and simple.
