WASHINGTON – This year, it will take more than First Lady Michelle Obama’s lofty campaign rhetoric to reelect Pres. Obama, which drew a lot of attention from Republicans yesterday. Polls don’t mean much now, but everyone in the polling business has got one, with the snap shot of today revealing Romney and Obama are near even with registered voters in a CBS/New York Times poll, while Obama has a gigantic lead among women, which is shown in every poll, including the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll.
In “The Party’s Over,” I made the observation, among many others, that the Obama campaign still hadn’t found a slogan. They’ve at least found one to rev up the faithful, which is where it all begins, especially in an election year that’s starting off as a snore.
But what’s missing? Killing the bad guy.
Nothing about giving the order on Osama.
Somehow I can’t imagine Republicans leaving that detail out.
