It seems that either the campaign is desperate or they have lulled themselves into thinking that the only two demographics that matter are “grievance studies” and “hipster D-bags”. (That’s what echo chambers will do to you.)
In any case, at a campaign appearance in Springfield, OH (not the namesake in IL), 0bama urged voters to “take revenge” on election day. The Romney campaign wasted no time in pouncing on this, asking voters “”Are you voting for Revenge Or Love Of Country?”
Seriously, 0bama and his campaign are increasingly making middle-schoolers look poised and mature in comparison.
Or they are plain desperate. Just gleaning from my twitter feed:
- a voter event in Cleveland, OH with a free Stevie Wonder concert, for G-d’s sake, pulled in less than 200 (two hundred) people. (And how many of those just came for Stevie and won’t vote at all or vote for R&R?)
- Not just PENNSYLVANIA, but even freaking MINNESOTA (yes, the only state pulled by Walter Mondale in 1984!) somehow became battleground states #dontgetcocky

- Another example of “confidence”: 4 men arrested in Perrysburg, OH for stealing Romney signs while driving sheet metal union truck http://pjmedia.com/instapundit/156686/ …
As Insty put it memorably: “Don’t forget to change your clocks tonight, and your president on Tuesday”.
