  •  Relax. Obama has campaigned on the theme (0+ / 0-)

    and it seems to have worked.

    •  The theme did not work with me (4+ / 0-)

      Besides the election is over.  It's not about themes.  It's about whose ox gets gored and I can't think of anything more despicable than throwing the elderly off the fiscal cliff.   And it doesn't matter that you balance throwing the elderly widow off the cliff with a cosmetic adjustment to the billionaire's 1040.

    •  How do you know. Maybe he would have won (1+ / 0-)

      even bigger if he actually communicated about this accurately.  In any case, to say he won is proof that this particular issue is what won it for him is not much of an argument.

      •  Obama got lucky... (0+ / 0-)

        with Romney as an opponent.

        If the repubs had run a decent candidate with even half the appeal of, say, Reagan, that candidate would have wiped the floor with Obama.

        •  Obama has been lucky with just about every (0+ / 0-)

          campaign he's run  Hillary was the exception although it was more she imploded trying to find a hook.
