It should be a tight race. Running away with the White House isn’t good for anyone. Least of all the person who gets the keys to the liquor cabinet on Air Force One.
Personally, I hope the guy who wasn’t born here beats the guy who was born with a silver spoon in his fanny. President Obama should run like his job is on the line. If for no other reason than his job is on the line.
Those of us who are disappointed in the presidency of Barack Obama should look no further than ourselves. Turns out, The Tea Party got 1-thing right: the anger.
Not 1-banker has been charged. Not 1-AIG Bonus has been returned. Not 1-member of the Bush Administration has been subpoenaed for torture. Ruth Madoff is still pretending she didn’t know. And this week, Paul Ryan said rape was a “method of conception.”
If Barack Obama can be so easily undone, by a comment taken out of context, like “you didn’t built that.” Or Ann Romney yelling, literally yelling, “I Love You Women!” Or a slow & steady recovery instead of another cycle of boom & bust. Or a creepy Mormon…
If Barack Obama can be so easily undone, then he should join the rest of us in the real world of airline travel, where legroom is scarce and dignity is for sale to the person who can afford the most hidden fees.
Game on, Mister President.
