Axelrod: It’s Amazing ‘We’re Not Getting Blown Away’
FOX ^

You know what's kind of amazing?

That we're not getting blown away in the face of unprecedented, unlimited spending from super PACs, Mitt Romney, and all the other shadowy groups trashing Barack Obama nonstop.

Shadowy groups? Is he hallucinating? Perhaps his boss has reinstituted the Choom Gang and Axelrod has been puffing away – the donors to Romney’s campaign and pro-Romney Super PACs has received consistent and brutal scrutiny.

Yeah, wait until Obama’s out of office and “Fast and Furious,” Solyndra, and all that other stuff get’s investigated.

Then you’ll see blown away.

I hate to say it, but what Axelrod is saying is what I’ve been thinking. With the economy in the toilet, gaffe after gaffe after gaffe, why the hell isn’t Obama down by 20 points? This is going to be a nail biter when it should be a landslide. I hope the Romney team is ready for dirty tricks and stuffed ballot boxes. We need someone who can get down in the mud.

I keep seeing the request for the $3 donation over and over. What is the significance of the number? Do they figure that is all their supporters can afford, or is it something else?

Maybe I’m being overly optimistic, but I think this idiot will go down in a landslide and AxelGrease and his ilk know it. The MSM will publish the phoney push polls that show a dead heat with 0blather slightly up, but the campaigns know the straight story. They can’t afford to be blind. They need accurate polls and their internal polls are probably spot on. I base it on the fact that Barry’s campaign has been kind of flailing for weeks, looking for something that sticks. Last week it was Bain this week Romney’s comments about the Olympics. That’s not the mark of someone who’s confident.

It’s my belief that Obama IS down by a lot more than
the media is letting us see. I believe that once the
media realizes how much he is going to lose by they
will cast him lose and go...

“Where did THOSE numbers come from???”

But Romney should have internal numbers. If Obama is getting blown away, Romney should let the cat out of the bag. A lead builds momentumn and helps with fund raising.

The reason that it isn't a blow out is because of mitt romney absolutely refusing to admit that the Conservative base does not like him... and he and his team continue to attack us and demean us and denigrate us at every opportunity. Add to that the gop/e sending out scalia to bang on the Second Amendment a bit today and getting cocky over his court raping the Constitution and legislating from the bench... and then cheney comes out... without any provocation... and attacks Sarah Palin and by proxy the right wing base... well that is why this election is now and shall be up until the vote is counted... a razor thin election. Even Mark Levin admitted Friday that he now sees this election as razor thin... because Mark opens his eyes and ears and actually reasons what it is he is seeing and hearing.

Squeeze them till they are dry.
Nanzi Pelosi was talking about how the Republicans

I’m just surprised that they don’t have a promotion
asking them to send in $3 in cash in exchange for
$5 worth of EBT stamps.

I wish I could agree with you,but I cannot. There is a history of the new President ignoring the sins of the old.

If Romney is elected, I do not expect any investigation into Obama’s fraudulent Presidency or of his Attorney Generals law breaking.

As soon as any investigation started the screams of racism would make the balls of any government investigator shrink into nothingness.

I maintain it is a 20 point lead....or will be in the end. When people pay attention in the fall, when Romney hits hard and reminds those starting to pay attention with all the crap we're watching now, when polls are weighted properly instead of leaning D.

Of course, there's still some residual voters hanging on to the historical precedent of electing a black president. They'll give up the ghost before Nov. And there are those who wish not to be charged with racism if they don't support Obie. The racism charges linger heavily.

Many pollsters and all the media do what they can (distort polling) to cover for Obie. Only Rasmussen seems to have a half accurate poll 5 point lead, and I maintain for some of stated reasons that it's more than that.

Sigh. Another douchey naysayer yelling at clouds rather than see the common threat and work for change.

It must be nice to sit on the fence and not risk anything.

If Romney wins, so what. We certainly won’t hear apologies coming from you.
If Romney loses, you’ll post and proclaim how right you were.

True, but you don’t want it to peak too early,
that may be what has happened to Obama.

Of course I always worry that this administration
already has a fix in and we may lose. THEN we have
some serious decisions to make!!

Quite frankly, this is why we must win with overwhelming
numbers in order to bury any attempt to recount to win
by the regime. This is also why I do not understand the
positions of the Romney haters, who seem to think that
Romney will have no effect on winning more house and
Senate seats.
I do not care for him, I was expecting Mrs. Palin to
run as I now expect her to run in 2016, but OBAMA MUST
GO, four more years of damage piled on top of the rubble
will be insurmountable for a free republic, even with a
Romney WIN and the House and Senate turning back the clock
will be very difficult and take twice the years to undo.

I am Tet68 and I approved this message.

Rasmussen and Gallup have Obama in the 44-46% area that is where he will end up.

I have been seeing a lot of Obama ads in No Jersey which is surprising. They were playing on the Olympics Obama is spending like crazy right now and it isn’t working.

Mitt's a bad candidate. Obama is a bad candidate. You are in a rush to the bottom.

Sure the economy is in the dumper. Doesn't help Obama a bit. Doesn't help Romney either.

You should be asking why Romney, a successful businessman, doesn't automatically get the support of the American people. Remember, if the economy is everything, they should be beaming love gobs his way ~ but, that's not happening.

Because I hang up every time I hear a pollster. I HATE POLLING and every conservative I know agrees with me. I have never missed a vote and will be there at 7 AM on that Tuesday in November. HOWEVER my vote is my own and it is PRIVATE! Sorry about that GOP and Libertarian candidates, I know you spend the money but IT IS MY PRIVATE VOTE.

Mitt is NOT a good candidate, he’s NOT who I would choose
to run. He IS however the choice we have.
I for one do not want to under go another four or eight
years of Socialist rule under the Obamao regime.

Romney may HAVE the support of the American people and it
MAY win the election for him but I doubt he will EVER
have the support of the american MEDIA and so the
support of the American people will not get the coverage
and will shock the pundits as it unfolds.

The alternative as I’ve said is that Obama already has
this election fixed, rigged, and in the can, no matter
how the votes go, in which case we have a REAL problem
and not much time to deal with it.

Here is how I see the momentum game playing out.

The MSM tried to sucker Romney into announcing his VP choice early in order to give Obama new talking points. So far, it didn't work. The sooner that Romney announces, the sooner he will lose control of the news.

Romney will wait until after the Olympics to announce. If he's smart, he'll wait until the convention to announce in order to keep the Democrats from trying to control the messaging from Romney.

Since Democrats have their convention after Republicans, Obama will steal the momentum from Romney by announcing at the convention that he is replacing Biden with someone else.

The MSM will do their part from this point.

Actually, Nevada did not have a primary. We had a very weird Caucus that nobody could figure out and there was a very small window of time to appear and cast a vote. I was 5 minutes too late, and was kind of wondering who all the Mexicans were that came on the buses and had name tags. It was a disgrace to call it anything. But that’s what the Nevada Republican Party gave us. Just like they gave us Reid.

It is amazing. . .but not; considering; that Mitt's, making 'nice' re our opposition; does not resonate with angry; disgusted Republicans. . .

(Did Mitt - or Sununu - or even Mr. Karl Rove, never study when Republicans and 'general citizens'; roared and cheered in our original candidates speeches? And when the lines on the 'sensory monitors' when off the chart? They should have; and they should have learned something. . .)

Mitt; seldom invites such. Of course; the 'Mr. Nice Guy' brought us; too easily; 'Bill Clinton'; invited the Florida debaucle between Bush/Gore; and ushered in easily; the viral Obama; from which America, may never recover. Albeit; certainly hope so. . .

One thing we can say with certainty; Repub Leadership; collectively; appear the poorest of learners. And we; America; more damned; because these 'old schoolers' and/or some with RINO wits; are intractable by their own dim 'lights'.

Personally; want to see the 'rats drown' - so to speak; but am thinking of a safer view to witness the water rising/sigh.
