Mark Haleprin gives the game away...

…in a throw away sen­tence at the end of a seg­ment on using the “Rom­ney is rich and out of touch” attack. He sug­gests it could be a win­ning plan for Obama for his base, and to force a mis­take end­ing with:

“…rather than mak­ing the elec­tion about the Obama record.”

This is why I’m very con­fi­dent about November.

Barack Obama 2008, the blank slate that peo­ple wrote what­ever they wanted to is not the Demo­c­ra­tic Can­di­date. The Barack Obama run­ning in 2012 is the one who has presided over the worst econ­omy in my lifetime.

The folks on Morn­ing Joe are spin­ning furi­ously talk­ing about how this group or that group is going to have a prob­lem. (Ques­tion if Rom­ney has a 20 point gap with women and is up by 2, Obama has to have a big­ger gen­der gap among men unless you have polling for “other”) but they miss the point.

No mat­ter how you spin it, no mat­ter how rich Mitt Rom­ney is, the bot­tom line is peo­ple have lived under Obama for three years and after three years of being in charge, the admin­is­tra­tion would rather talk about absolutely any­thing but the job they’ve done.

When your strat­egy is: “Look: Romney’s a Mor­mon”, “Look: Romney’s is rich!”, “Look: Romney’s stiff”, “Look Rush says some­thing that Mitt hasn’t con­demned.” instead of “Look: I’ve done a great job!” that’s a problem.

You can’t win on this mes­sage, and Obama won’t.

Update: Moved the bold and added “but they miss the point.” to para­graph 5

Update 4: A for­mer con­fi­dence man knows a con when he sees it:

Update 5: Talk about tim­ing:

Long­time polit­i­cal strate­gist David Axel­rod, who helped advise Pres­i­dent Obama’s pres­i­den­tial run in 2008 and is serv­ing as com­mu­ni­ca­tions direc­tor for Obama’s re-​election cam­paign, has paid $1.7 mil­lion for a four-​bedroom, 3,320-square-foot condo unit in a high-​rise condo along Michi­gan Avenue.

This guy is no fool, the idea is to tempt the GOP to hit him on it so he can play “com­pare the wealth” with Gov­er­nor Romney.

Update 6: Surber gets it:

3. Barack Obama is run­ning scared. 4 years ago, he was a blank slate. Today his black­board is filled with a lot of action and lit­tle results. The $787 bil­lion stim­u­lus did noth­ing. The $700 bil­lion TARP went into bankers pock­ets. The GM bailout affected only 1 in 5 Amer­i­cans who actu­ally buy a GM or Chrysler. The Arab Spring back­fired. He gave up on Iraq and we are being tossed out of Afghanistan.

4. Oba­macare. Never has a pres­i­den­tial domes­tic pol­icy been so despised. The Viet­nam War was more pop­u­lar in 1968 — and LBJ decided against another term.

The 2012 elec­tion will not be about whether Ann Rom­ney worked a day in her life or Rush Lim­baugh call­ing a woman a slut or whether George Zim­mer­man is guilty of mur­der in the sec­ond degree.

The 2012 elec­tion is all about Barack Obama. For such a vain nar­cis­sist, Barack Obama sure is try­ing to get out of the spot­light on this one. That shows how lit­tle chance he really has.

You heard it there first.

…in a throw away sentence at the end of a segment on using the “Romney is rich and out of touch” attack. He suggests it could be a winning plan for Obama for his base, and to force a mistake ending with:

“…rather than making the election about the Obama record.”

This is why I’m very confident about November.

Barack Obama 2008, the blank slate that people wrote whatever they wanted to is not the Democratic Candidate. The Barack Obama running in 2012 is the one who has presided over the worst economy in my lifetime.

The folks on Morning Joe are spinning furiously talking about how this group or that group is going to have a problem. (Question if Romney has a 20 point gap with women and is up by 2, Obama has to have a bigger gender gap among men unless you have polling for “other”) but they miss the point.

No matter how you spin it, no matter how rich Mitt Romney is, the bottom line is people have lived under Obama for three years and after three years of being in charge, the administration would rather talk about absolutely anything but the job they’ve done.

When your strategy is: “Look: Romney’s a Mormon”, “Look: Romney’s is rich!”, “Look: Romney’s stiff”, “Look Rush says something that Mitt hasn’t condemned.” instead of “Look: I’ve done a great job!” that’s a problem.

Update 5: Talk about timing:

Longtime political strategist David Axelrod, who helped advise President Obama’s presidential run in 2008 and is serving as communications director for Obama’s re-election campaign, has paid $1.7 million for a four-bedroom, 3,320-square-foot condo unit in a high-rise condo along Michigan Avenue.

This guy is no fool, the idea is to tempt the GOP to hit him on it so he can play “compare the wealth” with Governor Romney.

He gave up on Iraq and we are being tossed out of Afghanistan.

4. Obamacare. Never has a presidential domestic policy been so despised. The Vietnam War was more popular in 1968 — and LBJ decided against another term.

The 2012 election will not be about whether Ann Romney worked a day in her life or Rush Limbaugh calling a woman a slut or whether George Zimmerman is guilty of murder in the second degree.

The 2012 election is all about Barack Obama. For such a vain narcissist, Barack Obama sure is trying to get out of the spotlight on this one. That shows how little chance he really has.
