We've analyzed the polls, sir, and there is a danger. Should I reduce campaign ad buys in Ohio and divert them to other swing states?

Evacuate? In our moment of triumph? I think you overestimate their chances!

rufus-t-firefly: One got rich by writing books.

Don't forget he was also a professor. He can read and write. Elitist.

The GOP's strategy in Ohio makes no sense, and is catastrophically backfiring. Democrats have two different types of ads here: totally negative against Romney's actions and policies, and Obama explaining how his policies will help the middle class. Romney's ads are at best non sequiturs ("Obama lets China cheat") and at worst complete fabrications ("You didn't build that"). That isn't to say that Democrats have their hands clean, as I saw quite a few of the "Romney killed my wife" ads, but I can't really say that I've seen any Romney ads that explain his policies with anything other than vague platitudes about reducing the debt.

Furthermore the super PACs have gone nuclear on Sherrod Brown, our state senator and union-loving liberal golden boy of Ohio. He's the guy who pretty much defines Midwestern liberalism. Republicans don't realize that every time they run an ad that says "Sherrod Brown is a clone of Obama," they're actually helping Obama, because people love Sherrod Brown. It's Obama that people are wary about, but if he's a lockstep clone of your guy, he must not be all bad.

dinomyar: Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: It's really quite simple. Americans, in general, don't like rich assholes. Mitt Romney is a rich asshole. He's every boss you've ever hated. Why would you pick him to be President?

Obama is also a rich asshole. So it boils down to, do you want a very succesful rich asshole, or do you want a moderately rich asshole? If I am going to have a rich asshole running things, I would rather have the very successful one.

I'd rather have the rich asshole who's publicly stated that we should ask people in his rich asshole income bracket to contribute their fair share in taxes, instead of the rich asshole who's publicly stated that people in his rich asshole income bracket need even more money in the form of unpaid tax cuts.

Well, for one,Rmoney thoight detroit was not in Ohio. He would know, he was born there. The problem came when Bain capital open the window of his campaign plane and took 47% of Ohio with it.
