I find that complete and utter BS. If 50 percent (Republicans) don’t want another candidate than they are dumber then I imagined.

He spends his campaign’s money almost as recklessly as he does ours.

I prefer another candidate, but for some reason, I just don’t get what I want all the time.

Most of that will dissipate after the conventions. Some (including a notable number here on FR) still harbor the irrational hope that a white knight will ride to the rescue, sweep the delegates off their feet, and deliver a Palin/Gingrich/Paul nomination.

Romney needs to lose the McCain strategy. Pick up a bar stool and whack the thugs in the back of the head.

Never happen, I know. But I can dream.

And they seem downright irritable about the fact Obama is losing the PR battle and blowing the money of his idiotic donors. Personally, I view this as a good thing. To each his own.

Could you clarify that, please? Does that mean you will vote for Romney, or would prefer someone else as the Republican candidate?

Like the health care law, FOLKS HAVE MADE UP THEIR MIND ON OBAMA! He will not and cannot get above 42-43% nationally at MOST on election day.

He can’t buy more support, he can’t attack Romney into obliviou.. because as I’ve been trying to tell the naysayers and sky is falling types, this election has, was and always will be about 1 thing.. OBAMA.

Its a referendum on him, and nothing more.. And its a referendum he’s going to lose and lose badly, and democrats down the ticket will be thrown out as well.

The press can spin, Obama and his supporters can buy TRILLIONS in ads, and IT WON’T MATTER!.. Folks made up their mind a long time ago, and nothing is going to change it.

The very notion this guy could win re-election is a flat out lie, and has been from day one. The whole “He’s inevitable”, which was bought by way too many people within Republican circles last year, was laughable.

OBama is, everything the left accused Bush of being, arrogant, incompetent, etc etc etc, and only the leftist kool aid drinkers are going to vote for him, he’s got no shot at winning anything remotely resembling a majority. Come election day, this guy si going to be LUCKY to have 40% of the popular vote.

I think the public has got a good look at Obama the Chicago thug these past few weeks. Since he has no record to run on the only thing left was his sweetness and cool image. That is in tatters now. He just sounds like a punk.

Really... what did they expect? after being an incompetant money-spending marxist moron, he thinks people are going to care that Romney worked longer at Bain Capital than he said?

That’s it? Thats the worst they can say about Romney? Is Obambi out of ammo already?

But wait all the Freepers who went on and on that Romney is losing because Obama launched one attack this week ....

According to Karl Rove, Romney is outspending Obama with ads in teh swing states. Just maybe you don’t all live in swing states and don’t realize that?

There are signs of the "bar stool": Using the actual politically incorrect word in an ad - "LIES" and refusing to give Obama any more Income Tax Return Ammunition.

Those are good signs. I don't think Romney is going to make the McCain Mistake. At least I'm hopeful that he won't.

I do think the sheer chutzpah and hypocrisy of Reverend Wright’s Altar Boy questioning Romney’s character has astonished even the most casual observer. He just can’t get away with this crap the way he did last time.

And thus all this gnashing of teeth the past two weeks on our side was total crap. Romney has the money to spend...they like where they are in July...a President burning through his campaign money and still sitting in the mid-40s.

As always, I clarify my opinion that Romney was probably my last choice in the field, but he beat the rest. While I don’t have high confidence in him for his presidency, I do not think his campaign is lacking in effective leadership. If they saw they were falling in the polls, they would act accordingly. Instead, I believe they see a cornered Rat, and one that is blowing their only real potential Ace in the class warfare Bain attacks...in June and July. It is a desperation move, and one that is not seeing any real impact in the polling.

you nailed it on that one- Obama will never match the near 100% support of even blacks this time (yes, amazingly SOME blacks are not stupid sheeple and will vote for ANY black man)

So, he support was MAXED last election- no way will it reach that this time

ANd Romneys’s the only alternative

He's burning through his funds quickly, and will need more cash soon. He will only get more cash if his donors think he's likely to win.

Or if they think the current line of attack has been effective. Remember Obama and Begala has said "this is what the campaign will be about." There is zero empirical evidence that these Bain Attacks have paid any dividends. How many of his brain dead followers are going to pony up the bucks for pursuing more of the same?

Obama will still carry overwhelming black support but it will be WAY down from last time.. 4 years of 15% or so unemployment among blacks will do that to you.

Speaking of not getting 100% black support:

He’s spending money at the worst possible time...in July. It has to be sheer desperation, doing something for the sake of doing something. It wouldn’t matter if he spent 10 times that much, no one is listening now. TV watching is at its lowest point. It’s probably hurting him if anything because people absolutely hate political commercials and to be getting them in the summer probably just pisses off the people that are actually seeing them.

There is no way it will it reach that level this time

Typically, the president’s Job Approval rating on Election Day will be close to the share of the vote he receives.
