Toesucker Dick Morris is predicting that Mitt Romney will win the presidency by a landslide. Um, I would urge you to consider the source of this prediction and you will shake your head. He has been wrong on every other prediction he has made since his years as a Bill Clinton adviser:
Voters have figured out that President Obama has no message, no agenda and not even much of an explanation for what he has done over the past four years. His campaign is based entirely on persuading people that Mitt Romney is a uniquely bad man, entirely dedicated to the rich, ignorant of the problems of the average person. As long as he could run his negative ads, the campaign at least kept voters away from the Romney bandwagon. But once we all met Mitt Romney for three 90-minute debates, we got to know him — and to like him. He was not the monster Obama depicted, but a reasonable person for whom we could vote.
Or will the Romney momentum grow and wash into formerly safe Democratic territory in New Jersey and Oregon? Source: The Hill
Yeah, that’s why Mitt Romney has a blatantly inaccurate ad about Jeep jobs moving to China in Ohio. That’s coming from a position of desperation on his part. If he wins by a landslide it will be because they stole the election. Lawdy, break out the champagne, start the presses, Dick Morris, who has zero credibility except on Fox News, is predicting a Romney landslide. Yeah, right. Yeah, donkeys will fly first.
Hey Dick, here’s what the Associated Press has to say about Obama’s political advantage today:
By commanding the response to a ferocious October storm a week before the election, Obama is employing a political advantage in the race to be president.
He is the president.
Clearly, Obama’s imperative to act transcends the election. Superstorm Sandy’s wrath is real. At a time of death and danger, any president is expected to lead for the people of every state, battleground or otherwise.
Yet in a political sense — and politics are absolutely part of this — Obama has a remarkable last-minute chance to campaign for his job just by doing his job.
Republican nominee Mitt Romney can load canned food onto donation trucks; Obama can order aid and assets to the entire Northeastern corridor.
Labeled by Romney as the big government guy, Obama is the one slashing red tape and telling governors to call him directly if they hit a single bureaucratic snag.
Don’t underestimate the power of President Obama. You know, that kid in the White House, Ann Romney has been saying her husband, the grown-up, could do better than.
