With five months until Election Day, Barack Obama faces a grim new reality: Republicans now believe Mitt Romney can win, and Democrats believe Obama can lose ... Last week's anemic job-creation and economic-growth data was sandwiched between two Bill Clinton specials: in one television interview, the 42nd President lauded Romney's business record as "sterling"; in another, he veered from the Obama line on the extension of Bush-era tax cuts ... The failure to unseat Wisconsin's Republican governor Scott Walker in a recall election was another bad sign for Democrats since it will rev up conservatives nationwide, including the kind of millionaires who gave big bucks to Walker's effort ... Veteran Democratic strategists from previous presidential bids and on Capitol Hill now wonder if the Obama re-election crew is working with the right message ... The White House remains on a rough political trajectory, with a potentially adverse Supreme Court decision on the Obama health care law looming, additional bad economic news from Europe coming and more worrisome polling pending ... Another danger for the President: the media freak show. Stalking that circus' center ring is Matt Drudge, whose caustic website continues to help drive the news cycle with an emphasis on negative, mocking items about Obama and Vice President Joe Biden and their wives. The latest sign of Drudge's potency: Ed Klein, the author of the virulently anti-Obama book The Amateur, was barred from major TV appearances and mostly ignored by the mainstream media, but the book's prominence on Drudge's website propelled it to the No. 1 slot on the New York Times nonfiction list.

The Democrats have always believed Obama was vulnerable, at least since his job approval rating went below 50%, and presuming that the economy and unemployment rate didn't improve enough. That's the lesson of history. No president since FDR has been re-elected with the stated UE at 8% or higher.

Of Democratic presidents since FDR, only one, WJC, was re-elected to a second term. Democrats are very familiar with this history. That they hoped O would be another one doesn't mean they didn't know it would be an uphill, against the wind, struggle.

They may have held some comfort with Romney as the opponent, but it was always clear, the economic record under O would be strongly determinative. In fact, that's what everyone has said from the beginning.

Democrats have alwasy said this election would be close. Who knows better than the party which has been the victim of unprecedented Repiglican obstruction of the recovery, since day one!

AND, that's what Repubs have been working so hard to block, the recovery.

Halperin huh? The guy who said on Joe Scarborough's program that the President "Acted like a Dick" and was only suspended for saying such a disgracefulol thing, for a few weeks?

LMAO!

As you said, Headline writers can be deceiving! So can those who desperatly search for bad ones on a daily basis, from as many radical, extremist RW pundits and politicos they can find, lol.
