Today’s polling data must disquiet everyone not named Romney, including President Obama and the House and senate Democrats.
The country knows. The president is a disaster, in over his head and struggling to read a teleprompter much less govern. The Chicago gang is panicked at Romney’s disciplined march, and even more so now that their long planned attacks on Bain have already been aired and found absurd by voters.
What is worrying is that our enemies know how weak the president is and how likely he is to be replaced and not just by a Republican but by a forceful foreign policy backed by a rebuilding American military. These are dangerous times, and I hope the presence of General Petraeus at CIA and General Mattis at CentCom at least gives the worst of the lot pause.
