Let Them Eat Cake With Anna Wintour

Meanwhile, Bluegrass Pundit cites The Examiner on the fear setting in amongst the Democrat Party on the likelihood of #OccupyResoluteDesk winning re-election:

Added Democratic strategist Doug Schoen, “It’s gone from ‘We expect he’ll be re-elected’ to ‘We think he’ll be re-elected’ to ‘We hope he’ll be re-elected’ to ‘He’ll probably be re-elected if everything goes right.’ Yes, they have something to worry about.”

Still way too early to pop the champagne. If the Unions pull out a victory in Wisconsin today, that will change the mood and breathe some hope into the Obama campaign.

Nevertheless, Romney is running a serious campaign, in contrast to Stacy’s cousin’s 2008 phone-in. Given that the Left appears to achieve success only when running against the record of an incumbent, (For, Bush41, Bush43) standing by actual accomplishment seems to elude them (Carter, Obama?) except when running against some tired old warhorse (Dole, McCain).

Liberty, ye Americans: it’s what’s for lunch. This Socialist dessert looks and smells fresh from the pasture.

    I’m not willing to conceed anything. The GOP, however, has rather consitently pulled defeat from the jaws of victory. Romney may seem to running a serious campaign, but if he’s allowing Levitt to run around loose, when the consensus is that Obamacare must die, then an attitude of “why bother” may well set in.

    Romney’s only selling point is that he is at least marginally different form the Kenyan. With Levitt running around loose, there is serious question of that.

    Good eye. I had never had my attention called to this particular wrinkle of English spelling.
    I’ll trade you an ‘e’ for a proper read of the by-line. 🙂

     Serious enough that I just voted for Santorum in CA.  Romney can get a donation for me from Levitt if he needs it so bad, he’s rolling around in boodles of that Ocare dough already.

    This is more of Romney’s talk one way, act another bullshit and it is just cementing me in my conviction that I should spend my time on the House and Senate.

    Still want to see Mitt debate Obama?

    Along with the myths about Obama personally, this campaign is underlining the fact that his campaign team is not some great group of political geniuses.  In 2008, the stars were perfectly aligned for them, and they used the race card to keep scrutiny to a minimum and kept their real agenda quiet behind the smoke and mirrors of “Hope ‘n’ Change.”

    Even so, if Hillary’s team hadn’t been so cocky as to not bother to organize in the dark red states (since they knew they couldn’t win them in the fall and assumed they would get the nomination), Obama would not have won.  It was red state delegates that did it for him, and he only won them because Hillary blew them off.

    Now we’ve seen the Obama minions really aren’t very smart – sort of like their candidate.
