  •  I think Ohio is lost. So how can Romney win? (2+ / 0-)

    Is it really possible in the REAL world of rational politics that he can win the election without Ohio? And as Ohio goes, I say so goes MI, WI, and PA (where I live). Rumour has it there is going to be a new poll in PA with Obama with only a 1 point lead but I haven't seen it published yet - but it was alluded to on the front page of today's Philadelphia Inquirer story.

      And I wouldn't bet $10 against his $10,000 on that.

      On the Internet, nobody knows if you're a dog... but everybody knows if you're a jackass.

      •  but running board while losing Ohio seems 1% odds (3+ / 0-)

        that's what I think this whole race is SET unless Romney gains anything in the debates. I cannot imagine Obama losing them, maybe a draw, but not losing them......Romney has too many flip-flops and misstatements and garbage, garbage, garbage for Obama to not capitalize. I mean many of Romney's arguments are simply lies, which Obama can strategically expose with a calm delivery.

          Say what you like about GeeWhiz (and there is plenty to say), he could handle off-the-cuff much better. Bishops and CEOs aren't used to being challenged, so tend to pontificate and obfuscate rather than answer questions.  

          Holy underpants, Fatman! It's-it's the Mitt of Might!

          Without OH, to get to 270, even with winning FL Romney needs states he can't get, like PA, VA, MI and WI.
