Recently, like within the last day or so, the Mitt Romney team has started to change their narrative. "We can win without Ohio!"
Well, I think that's fantastic news!
Because Mitt Romney has now basically given up on Ohio. He knows that he will never have that necessary swing state.
Lately there's been a lot of panic on Kos about Ohio because, while Obama has been carrying the state in every poll, the voting machines themselves actually belong to Mitt Romney's company.Can you say "election-tampering?"
And we know Romney loves to cheat! The guy brought a cheat sheet into the first debate for crying out loud.... despite the fact that there are CLEAR rules against this! Watch the first debate if you dare! Notice that Romney can't seem to say anything unless he not-so-subtly glances down at his lectern.
But there ARE paper ballots and safeguards against voter tampering in Ohio. Will that be enough?
Apparently so... according to the latest Romney campaign statement about them saying they don't need Ohio. When Ohio's governor, a Republican, bravely said that Ohio would go to Romney despite every single poll held there since the beginning of the election season... I got worried. Did the governor know something we didn't?
I'm sure Romney's researched every single option when it comes to cheating Ohio towards him... and he's found that he can't do it. So now he's pretending that he doesn't actually need Ohio.
Guys, start stocking up on champagne. We're gonna win this!
