1) What do you think he can legitimately do to salvage this campaign?
2) What do you think he’ll actually do to salvage his campaign.
Which campaign are you watching?
The one that is leading in national polls, leading in electoral college votes, leading in almost all swing states, and that just broke a fundraising
record last month?
Or is there another Obama campaign I don't know about?
This is what I was wondering also. And good luck getting favorable odds in Vegas betting against Obama. He would need to sabotage the remainder of his
own campaign for any chance at losing.
ETA: post-debate, here's the current Vegas odds:
That means you have to risk $300 to win $100 if you want to bet. on Obama, or if you take the much greater risk, based on all available data, you need
to risk only $100 to win $240 on Romney.
The fact is, people remember all too recently what happened last time we had a Republican president. Skyrocketing debt to GDP, sudden trashing of
Constitutional Rights, a major attack on the US homeland, skyrocketing unemployment and a twice-crashed stock market, delaying retirement for millions
of baby boomers.
In the past 4 years, unemployment has leveled off, people's retirement accounts have doubled, and the debt to GDP ratio has leveled off (that's a
fact, please don't argue it, the facts are easy to find.)
I'm no liberal, but with a gross annual income of around $150k, and a strong belief that the federal government should not trample on individual
freedoms, I tend to vote Democrat most of the time (though given a viable libertarian candidate, I would vote that way) - that said, if I feel
strongly that Obama would be the much better choice, I highly doubt "liberals" are losing their confidence in Obama. It sounds like just another
neocon fantasy to me, drooling at the idea of getting Wolfowitz, Chertoff, Cheney, Rumsfeld, etc., back into policy positions in D.C. One would have
to assume those who want that are looking to go back to rocketing the debt to GDP, hoping for another attack on the homeland, and for a federal
government who controls how people live their lives.
Some call those things "Conservative" - as someone born before a Bush was in the White House (first as VP), I consider that to be
