If you have not seen this very effective ad from the Mitt Romney campaign, it’s worth your time. It shows you what kind of campaign President Obama is in for. The economy … the economy … the economy. Unless something magical happens in the next year, Obama is going to have to defend an abysmal record on the economy.
No doubt he’ll try to blame it all on Bush. But it’s hard to see how that will wash for anyone other than hard-core Obamatrons. Made some sense in 2008. Makes no sense in 2012. Obama is either up to the job, or he’s not. And if the economy remains this bad, you can bet many will conclude the latter.
P.S. — Speaking of Romney and Las Vegas, take a look at this report on Romney last month. Not exactly what anyone would call down the middle. But, as Karma would have it, the "newspaper" took it on the chin for playing stenographer with Democratic opposition research. Skip to the bottom of the story and see the embarrassing correction added later.
