Democrats Warning Obama About Re-Election
Several respected Democrat strategists/pollsters, most of whom worked for Bill Clinton in the 1990s, are warning President Obama the light at the end of the tunnel for his hard-left administration is an oncoming train of voters steamrolling his re-election bid if he doesn’t change his tactics. Yet I have said for years a man cannot rise above his worldview (“as a man thinketh in his heart so is he”). Obama is a pure leftist, from the social reconstructionist wing of the Democrat Party, and influenced by Jeremiah Wright and Saul Alinsky. He has governed exactly like that, and continues to campaign like that for re-election. They’re basically asking him to go back to what he did in 2008, which is hard to do since he has a record now. Someone should ask the question why Mitt Romney is not way ahead after the terrible six weeks Obama has had. Romney still trails in the Real Clear Politics polling average, and trails badly in the RCP Electoral College Map analysis.
Media Finally Vetting Romney’s Record in Massachusetts?
Many conservatives were frustrated during the primary process with the media’s refusal to vet Romney’s record as governor of Massachusetts, and only focus on his fundraising and polling numbers. Now that he’s secured the nomination, comes this story from the Los Angeles Times about how Romney as governor of Massachusetts was pro-global warming, and is now saying something totally different as president.
