The Threats Are Growing. The Economy Isn’t: Romney 2

Rasmussen’s daily edged up 1 for Romney, for a 2 point overall lead among likely voters, and as Jay Cost notes, the real news avalanche is decisively against the president.

The threat of Islamist terror is growing. The threat from Iran is growing. The threat of increasing joblessness is growing. The threat to the dollar is growing. China and Russia –more growing threats. Now there is riotitng in Indonesia.

And the media obsess on inside-the-campaign-baseball whether it is alleged drama about the Romney campaign’s Stuart Stevens or the president’s Svengali Valerie Jarrett.

Only in the increasingly bizarre world of Manhattan-Beltway elite media is the tale of two speeches at the GOP convention big news as the Middle East slides towards war in no small measure brought about by American weakness. (Here is the short form, btw: Romney advisor Stevens ordered up a speech from very smart guy Pete Wehner. Romney, per usual, decided to write his own, demonstrating again a seriousness that POTUS does not have as well as a talent that totally eludes the president.)

The polls have already turned in the wake of the atrocity and disasters last week. MSM remains a good ten days behind any real news curve, but the voters are not behind that curve. That’s the story: A failing, flailing president whose designated spokesperson for the weekend had to declare “We are not impotent.”
