Economy up, Romney down
Senator John McCain said recently that American hopes for continued improvement in the economy hurt Mitt Romney‘s chances of being the next Commander-in-Chief. If anything, they will help propel President Obama back into office.
This news brings one very obvious word to mind: DUH!
I’m no political pundit and have never considered myself to be well-versed in the areas of government or politics, but how is this any different from all the news we’ve been hearing since the presidential campaign began?
Romney’s focus has always been on the economy and how he can improve it faster than his competitor. Sure, he turned his sights on foreign affairs once “The Innocence of Muslims“caused international violence and controversy, but only out of desperation. If your economic arguments won’t fly, then why not try a different approach?
November is right around the corner and in almost every poll, Romney is lagging behind President Obama, even in battleground states like Ohio and North Carolina. Granted, polls are nothing more than predictors and have been unreliable in determining final election results, but they do have some value. The people being polled are Americans who share their opinions, after all.
Of course, there are polls that show Romney closing in on Obama, but they are few and far between. It certainly seems like Romney is on the ropes. And statements like the ones from Senator McCain seem more like GOP excuses for what could end up being a serious butt-kicking a few months from now.
I wonder what they’re going to say next…
