This image which was the first news item on their home page at about 9:30 PST (12:30 GayPatriot blog time) makes the candidate look like he’s resigned to his fate, rather than confident of victory:



  1. …and everything hitherto sealed will come unstuck. We hope.

  2. I’m smelling a proverbial “preference cascade”… HotAir has video right now where even David Letterman questions Obama’s honesty! to Rachel Maddow’s face!

    As to Obama’s psychology… Some say that the reason He still (!) refuses to release His college records, is that He was a coke dealer in college. (And might have been reprimanded, etc.) I don’t know about that. The theory that He accepted aid as a “foreign” student seems more plausible to me. But… if He were That Guy in college who dealt coke, well it could explain a lot.

  3. Don’t worry, Obama’s campaign is saved because Richard Mourdock said something about rape! That will distract people from the issues! Also, Gloria Allred!

  4. #2 and look at how Madcow’s throat tightens up as he tells her this! She can barely swallow!

  5. What you’re seeing here are two very different views of base psychology. The Romney campaign believes — and polling confirms — that Republicans are fired up to fire the president. They don’t need to worry about voter enthusiasm. But they do worry about voter confidence. If Republicans don’t believe they can win, they may not turn out to the polls. They don’t like the former Massachusetts governor enough to turn out on his behalf. So as they see it, confidence is their friend: Every Republicans wants to say they helped turn Obama out of office.

    The Obama campaign believes — and polling confirms — that Democrats aren’t particularly fired up about the president. But they’re very fired up by the idea that Romney might become president. For the Obama campaign, then, voter enthusiasm can be squelched by voter confidence: If Democrats don’t think Romney can win, they may not be motivated to vote.”
