When Does He Pop?
Yes I mean Obama. But I don’t mean in the postal sense of the phrase. No, when does it pop into everyone’s head that there is a sense of enviably Obama loses? You see it in sports, politics, relationships. There is this crowd sense that the `Mo` has moved to the other team that only unchallenged slam dunks or three unchallenged TD’s overcome the feeling.
Obama has to be getting to that point with the electorate. The man appears to have botched Wisconsin. Feedback says Romney has a lead there right now. The German press seems to be down The Won as well. Wall Street is turning, having had enough of the Occupy crowd and Obama’s willing association, with their money. Even Carville is doubtful —
We are losing these voters on the economy, but holding on because Romney is very vulnerable. They do not trust him because of who he is for and because he’s out of touch with ordinary people; he is vulnerable on the Ryan budget and its impact on people; he is vulnerable on the choices over taxes. But in the current context, it produces a fairly diminished embrace of Obama and the Democrats, the lesser of two evils, without much feeling of hope.
Now some might say that last weeks gaffe about the economy is it —
In the end it might be true. But somehow I chalk that one up to starting the ball rolling. I suspect that the real clincher is some future event. A debate or a Macaa Moment. Other than us political junkies most Americans don’t really think about the election till about a month out. So here is the question for the readership — What do you think will be the event that seals Obama’s fate. Or do you think that event has already occurred?
