Romney tries image makeover, stressing empathy for average Americans!!! Losing ground in Ohio, Romney says his "heart aches" for jobless!!!

Wow, Awesome!

Romney seems almost certain to fail. The only likely mode to win that exists for him now is that of the “unknown unknown”, as CHARLES M. BLOW suggests

... as CHARLES M. BLOW suggests: jobs,  unpredictable global events,  
Joe Biden doing “something...”; I would add election voting.

Voting issues...

- Lots of news now about GOP and GOP consorts trying various ways to cut off low income (mostly black) voting; it seems certain to be tried and could have some success.

- Young and middle-age (20s 30s 40s) people, discouraged about jobs, recovery, making-a-living, just giving up, on the grounds that “all politics are evil”; which is not true.

- Liberals not voting because they are not getting some “favorite thing”.

- Votes by those who “just hate Obama”, an issue usually not recognized or discussed in liberal media.

What to do; its easy to say, but maybe not so easy to get done:
Vote; Vote party line - there is a difference...

(I might note here that I didn't work and retire as any political person, which I see now was wrong.  In 40 years, the GOP has eliminated USofA based on equality, and substituted one controlled by the rich and powerful! My mistake...)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
