President Obama's problem now isn't what Wisconsin did, it's how he looks each dayŚcareening around, always in flight, a superfluous figure. No one even looks to him for leadership now. He doesn't go to Wisconsin, where the fight is. He goes to Sarah Jessica Parker's place, where the money is.

There is, now, a house-of-cards feel about this administration.

Suddenly...??

It's been a house of cards since day one. His economic policies are modeled after California, New York, and Illinois.

My thought exactly. The media is just beginning to wake up to reality. You can only piss on soeone's leg for so long and tell him it's raining. The media has been carrying his bucket of water for so long. They cannot spin 1.9% GDP. He has been blaming "headwinds" for 35 months. There is nothing "sudden" about it.

I wonder how many people actually think the elections in Wisconsin have any bearing on the national figures. I assume it is larger than it should be.

I don't think it's just Wisconsin. (Though the Unions piked the fight, spent tons of money, and still got crushed.) I its because the people running the Obama campaign have the mental capacity of a bag full of rats in a burning meth lab. They spent several months planning the occupy wall street / Bain capital attack, only to have it blow up in their face - because their own surrogates didn't believe it. Everything they do is looked at as political - the evolving announcement, the bogus war on women. They can't run are their record, and all their ploys look ridiculous. In 2008, the media let the Obama campaign control the narative. They can't anymore, they have a record - and it is ugly. So the WH and the campaign (has it ever been anything but a campaign) can't even get their bogus attacks straight. The light is beginning to shine on how inept the entire adminstration has been since day 1.

Meh, why does this administration care? Obama is a shoe in because, after all, "the private sector is doing fine." :lol:

Romney is pretty widely considered the more mechanical candidate.

Can he fix a car transmission or reset a circuit breaker?

Pretty widely?...among your circles...

Do you now? Why not ask him what party the last politician he worked with was affiliated with...

Among all circles outside the irrational ones. It's true that the President has softened and flipped on quite a few issues. He's a shrewd politician to be sure. Romney, however, takes it to a whole new level. He turned against the very health care policy that he helped implement in Massachusetts.

Just the amount of jokes there are about Mitt Romney taking two sides of an argument or being two separate people dwarfs that of even John Kerry's "flip flopping" reputation, and Kerry literally gave the soundbite "I voted for it before I voted against it."

We are no longer on speaking terms. However, I will still comment.

there's only one issue this election and it's not political flip flopping

the relevant sound bite was last week, when we heard the private sector is doing fine.

There is never just one issue in an election.

Lover's spat eh? Well he worked on a campaign for a Republican. He'll still be accused of being partisan, since that's the go-to card for the right when someone disagrees with them. However, Zest has shown to be pretty objective when talking about politics...

He was the one that got his feelings hurt. I am fine with him. It is what it is. When he says so, things will get back to normal.
He obviously is an intelligent, and very sensitive person.
Moving along...
