It’s easy to run a campaign when you’re a nobody and the media doesn’t care about vetting your, or finding out your positions beyond that fact that your more radical as they could have ever dreamed. Four years later, Barack Obama is a known quantity, trying to hide from his record.
It’s not working out for him so well as his re-election campaign proves to be as incompetent as his presidency.
I confess that not in my wildest dreams did I imagine President Obama’s campaign would be so awful. Oh sure, I knew it would be “awful” in the sense of going negative, being disingenuous and blaming everyone for his failings. But I was taken by surprise by how “awful,” in the sense of incompetent and ham-handed, it has been.
Virtually every gambit and issue (“war on women,” gay marriage, and now Bain) has gone haywire, arguably inflicting more damage to Obama than to Mitt Romney.
Romney sounds like he’s the president when he responds more in sadness than in anger to Obama’s assertion he’s going to make the campaign about Bain.
It couldn’t happen to a more deserving Marxist.
