They Think This Is It!

Talk about the screw up of all campaign screw ups, the mother of all campaign gaffes, Obama's "you didn't build that" remark will go down as the defining moment of the 2012 race. The Dems have been in a mad scramble to knock this one down before Obama had even left the podium, but it just won't go away. They've tried to say it was all taken out of context, but when you listen to the full speech IT GETS WORSE! They've hit it from every angle from editorial writers to talking head shows to popular culture to bogus polls; every arrow in their quiver has been fired and it still won't go away.

Obama has spent a lot of money these past six weeks trying to take out Romney early. They want to make him an unacceptable candidate while shoring up their base with goodies. But they still need those undecideds. They need the white, rust belt, working class Democrats. They need the Allentown voter. And the last thing you want when you're trying to distract from a bad economy is a defining sound bite that clearly and succinctly exposes your guy's leftist views. A greater contrast could not have been drawn if Romney spent every penny in his coffers.

Politicians as often as not get in trouble for either speaking the truth (typically Republicans) or for being truthful about their beliefs (typically Democrats). It didn't appear Obama was speaking off the cuff which makes this very troubling for the Democrats, especially those down ticket folks. They've got a left wing guy whom they want to position as a centrist, hard at it, working his butt off for the American people against overwhelming problems, and nobody could do better. And after all that money and work, he comes out with this nonsense and puts everything back to square one. I don't think they can recover. This could be it, and they know it.

Jesus and the Central Intelligence Agency both say "Seek the truth and the truth will make you free" Hopefully it will make us free from Obama and a Democrat controlled senate.

Enjoyed some time at a Maryland cigar bar last night chatting with older gent who has been a Democrat his entire life. He's going to sit this election out.

Oh, can you face yourself in the mirror every morning? Pimping today's numbers as a positive for the Prez? Really?
