Try to imagine you are Obama or Biden right now. They all but admitted they never saw it coming. ‘It’ being the Paul Ryan veep choice. And now they are scrambling on defense again to figure out what to do.
In a war, one of the most critical and important elements of strategy is to keep your enemy off balance; to keep him guessing all the time. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are brilliant strategists and fighters and they are going to win. One key factor in the Obama/Biden arsenal is their predisposition to lie. They have no compunction to lying; that makes them dangerous when cornered. But we have confidence in the voters to see through the fog of falsehood. Truth always triumphs over falsehood.
Two days ago I gave a list of several clues that give me the confidence to optimistically state Romney/Ryan will be elected on November 6th. One of those clues is the difference in crowd size at each Obama or Romney campaign stop. The Romney/Ryan crowds are huge and growing and much larger than the Obama/Biden crowds.
Yesterday, the Washington Examiner published an email message from within the Obama campaign HQ in Chicago. You will recall that crowd estimates of the North Carolina event were estimated at 10,000+. This message below pegged it 5,000 higher:
I just got this disturbing report: Yesterday’s Romney-Ryan rally in North Carolina pulled in an overflow crowd of 15,000 people.
There’s no spinning that number. It’s a LOT of people, and the Republican base in energized.
And that’s not all. Since the VP announcement, Romney’s campaign has brought in over 70,000 donations from his Tea Party base.
We’ve got to step up our game and mobilize our supporters — starting right now.
Donate $3 or right now to help us rally our base around President Obama’s agenda >>
Listen to what one Republican supporter said about Paul Ryan: “I love him…He’s going to excite the Tea Party and get them on board…”
We can’t let the Republicans claim the momentum. Donate $3 or whatever you can:

I was trying to imagine some of the water cooler discussions there in Chicago. One that came to mind was this: “Man, what are we going to do about North Carolina! That is our national convention state. Romney is eating our lunch there! What the heck are we going to do?!!”
This article is a great example of the many articles describing panic and desperation wafting from the Axelrod tent ——-> SHAPIRO …I love it!
