Barry is not at all happy with his supporters, and who can blame him? The cumulative gnashing of teeth, all the Chickens Littles running for cover, and all over one bad debate, it’s quite remarkable. I thought those guys were so steeped in history that an event played out before, more then once, would not cause such panic, boy, was I wrong:
The Pew poll is devastating, just devastating. Before the debate, Obama had a 51 – 43 lead; now, Romney has a 49 – 45 lead. That’s a simply unprecedented reversal for a candidate in October. Before Obama had leads on every policy issue and personal characteristic; now Romney leads in almost all of them. Obama’s performance gave Romney a 12 point swing! I repeat: a 12 point swing.
Romney’s favorables are above Obama’s now. Yes, you read that right. Romney’s favorables are higher than Obama’s right now. That gender gap that was Obama’s firewall? Over in one night:
I sure hope he didn’t go kick those two dogs of his.
Yes, this is a first for me, linking to the much maligned (I try) Andrew Sullivan, it won’t happen again.
I know, I should not get satisfaction out of the demise of others, and I will feel bad about later tonight, but I picture that constipated look he gets, especially with news like this, and I feel a symmetry with my ying and my yang, my planets are aligned.
He needs a pep talk, “Buck up there, sailor, it’s only one debate, and if he gacks the next one, just keeping calling Romney a liar, don’t get away from the familiar”.
