This video comes from WhyIChangedMyVote.com. This video is powerful; it says it all about the political landscape President Obama is facing this cycle. Many voters are finding that Obama is a disappointing candidate, as well as disappointment as a president. The reason many are finding the 2012 version of Obama less appealing is partly due to the way he is campaigning. However, does this mean Obama has lost? We will know once the MSM starts to lose it and fully attempt to help Obama (not the cryptic method they use now).Instead of a second term agenda all we see the Obama campaign doing is chasing the so-called shiny objects—Big Bird, Binders full of women, Mitt Romney is killing people wives, this Romnesia ploy—instead, the president should be advancing a second term agenda. I believe if Obama would have attempted to shift to the center by admitting that his left wing had pushed him into endorsing policies that have not worked, and then he would have been a shoe in for reelection. I know this goes against conventional wisdom; however, having no agenda makes almost all his attacks look desperate.
On ABC's "This Week", Marco Rubio said this about the Romnesia statements coming from the left:
"That fires up his base, people who are going to vote for him anyway," and he added "But for the rest of Americans who are trying to make up their mind who to vote for, what they're wondering is, 'Well, that’s very cute Mr. President, but what are you going to do for the future?'"
The below video was probably the most powerful one released by team Obama this cycle. If Obama wins, it will be because of the work Bill Clinton did for the Democrats. The Independents remember Clinton has a president that was willing to shift towards the center after failing to pass Hillary-care. Clinton and a Republican Congress passed welfare reform and balanced the budget. This is something that Obama could not get done. Do not believe the hype though, this has nothing to do with Obama facing a different Republican Party, and has everything to do with Obama not coming to the table willing to get something real done.
Is it too late for Obama to turn things around? That is a prediction no one is willing to make. The Presidential race has been extremely volatile this year. People were saying repeatedly that Romney was done before the first debate. Now people are either noting Romney has the momentum, or pointing to flawed polls using flawed turnout models as a reason that Obama is actually still up in this race.
Josh Jordan breaks this phenomenon down brilliantly right here.
Jonathan S. Tobin points out that Obama and the Democratic Party are in serious trouble unless they find a way to turn this around. He points out that neither of the last two debates have moved the numbers.
We are not witnessing complete panic from the left--they are holding it together for now--It would be foolishness to say that Romney does not have a real chance at winning this thing. The way we will know that Romney has won, or the left thinks he has won, is when the media goes into complete help Obama mode. The simple fact we have begun to see this take place, just shows that Romney is on the precipice of running away.
