Yes, I know that even if the polls have shown a slight drift to Romney these past few days, they still show Obama ahead.
That said, given the problems this nation faces, with the “fiscal cliff” looming, he just doesn’t seem engaged in the process of governing. And that is why this video is — or at least should be — one of the handful of defining ads of this campaign. It shows a president who would rather campaign than provide for the common defense (flying to Vegas on the day after the attacks on our embassies and consulates), would rather participate in a day-time talk show than meet with world leaders (heading to a taping of the View rather than take the time to talk to world leaders in New York for the opening of the latest session of the United Nations).
He seems more disposed to doing TV talk shows than to negotiating with federal legislators.
As we’ve said before, he just doesn’t seem interested in doing a job.
