Obama's Ohio Desperation

As it was being revealed that the State Department refused to provide additional security for our diplomatic personnel in Libya, Obama was in Ohio begging college kids to vote early for him.
“I still believe in you. And I’m asking you to keep believing in me,” Obama said to 15,000 people on the Oval at Ohio State University yesterday — his largest Ohio crowd of the cycle.
What does it mean that he still believes in them? He believes that they can help him win. He believes that his speaking skills can mesmerize them to care more about his future, than their own. Their upper class-men, who graduated last year, are delivering pizza's. Fortunately, for Obama, to paraphrase Winston Churchill, If you're not a liberal when you're young, you don't have a heart. If you're not a conservative when you're older, you don't have a brain. Unfortunately for Obama, there's also  a lot of older people.

Romney's Game Changer

I believe that Romney did more than hit a home run last night, he changed the game. Prior to the debate, it was thought that because of Obama's oratory skills, if Romney held his own, it would be a job well done. Romney did much more than hold his own, he dominated the debate, even while allowing Obama more speaking time. More precious than the actual debate, was the pundit reaction afterwards. Progressive Rachel Maddow felt that Obama should have used the 47% weapon. Others described Obama as tired and lackluster. Million dollar contributor Bill Maher tweeted that apparently Obama needs the teleprompter. Needless to say, the conservatives were dancing in their underpants. The next debate on foreign policy doesn't bode well for Obama, United States appeared unprepared for the consequences of the Arab Spring. It will be a long month for the candidates, world events is a wild card beyond their control.
