I mean, he might be able to coast until the conventions, but after that: all the expected stuff’s been used up already. Sure, Obama can recycle existing stuff, but it loses its freshness quickly. Not least because it usually didn’t really work the first time, either.
I’m almost keen to see what they can scrape up. Emphasis on almost: the goal is to maximize chances for victory, of course. Fair fights are for other people.
PS: No, Americans don’t do fair fights. We do square fights. What’s the difference? Well, a fight between a trained Marine and some loudmouth would-be bad boy isn’t a fair fight. Four-on-one isn’t a square fight. Which would you feel more obligated to stop?
PPS: Fortunately, Romney doesn’t have Obama’s problem. Romney’s message about his opponent can stay Dear God, but that man is incapable of running the country because, well, Obama keeps demonstrating precisely that.
