Cleveland: Keeping Christmas at Home
Ramona: The War on Happy Holidays
For the first time I think we've got a chance.
" We" being those of us who want to see Obama preside over the implementation of Obamacare. Could happen, now,
Until now I've felt our goose was Koched: the overwhelming financial advantage Romney will enjoy would be used to "Harry & Louise" or "Swiftboating" Obama..
Personally I once had the experience of being prepped by one of those famous Mad Ave firms to appear on a morning talk show. In 8 hours they (temporarily) converted me from my normal Klutzness into some one who won the contest. "Well XXX.won this one "was the sour comment of the aide who accompanied my opponent. Not because I had somehow developed unsuspected skills. But because they so thoroughly prepared me for every possible question, and so shaped my "presentation" -when to lean forward, how to nod my head- that I was temporarily a convincing advocate for a fairly weak case.
Those skills which have been used to convince us that Budweiser tastes good would be used to convince us that our lives would be better under Romney than under Barack.
Now I think we've got a shot. Mitt didn't pick a Rubio who could have guaranteed Florida, Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada. Or a Haley or that woman from New Hampshire who could have given him 5 additional points among woman.
He's picked the equivalent of the Grinche who stole Christmas.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
