Domenech is right. I expected that the “insiders” and pros I know in DC, who measure the twists and turns of political campaigns with micrometers in real time, would have a sanguine view of things, and attach the correct discount to the anomalous polls and high volatility this race displays.

This article is a welcome companion to a post of ours yesterday “According to Whom ?” It cannot be repeated often enough … the media is in full ” Battlespace Preparation” mode . While they will report none of it , they are intimately aware of their boy’s shortcomings and are pulling out all the stops to convince you , the voting public , that the Romney campaign is a lost cause . Do not fall for it . The only way they can win is if you stay home on November 6 . DON”T LET THAT HAPPEN . Vote and take a friend .
