Romney Calls Obama's Post-Convention Gain A ‘Sugar High'

Source: New York Times

President Barack Obama raised more money in August than Mitt Romney did, outpacing him for the first time since the spring and adding to a sense in both parties that Obama is entering the post-convention sprint to Election Day in a slightly stronger position.

Romney's campaign rushed out a memo Monday stating that any post-convention polling lift for Obama was “a sugar high” that would not last the next few weeks, let alone to Election Day.

The first post-convention poll by a major news organization, from CNN and ORC International, showed Obama with a slight gain, 52 percent to 46 percent, over Romney, within the poll's margin of sampling error.

1. Well, we know that he doesn't have a very good record on being correct,

so I suspect he isn't correct on this one either. He's just daydreaming as usual.

3. Interesting they are even admitting there is a significant bounce.

That means they must be seeing it as well in their internal polling.

his own (tiny) Post-Convention gain? A chair high?

8. Poor Mittens - he didn't get any sugar at his convention

He's sounding more petty by the day - even Rush is more or less conceding defeat at this point.

10. Octane. High Octane!

Romney's sugar rush is empty calories. Obama's sugar rush is sustained energy.

18. Somewhat Like Republicans on polls in General

The "bounce" after the RNC was a solid reflection of the confidence of the people in Romney. The "bounce" after the DNC is a sugar high of deluded people feeling their entitlements. Have you noticed a sense of contempt by the Republicans for people in general, unless they are rich?

19. Every time these dingbats say something that gets on my last nerve

they follow up with something that gets on a last nerve I didn't know I had.

I realize I'm biased on general principle, but has this moran Mittens even uttered anything that wasn't completely stupid and/or deranged?

He makes my head spin. I'm going to have some fried shrimp.

It only seems like a sugar high to them because their campaign is in a diabetic coma from low blood sugar.

Somehow I doubt he'd be singing that tune.

33. The problem is. They don't have a good candidate

or even a popular candidate. No one likes him. So he can't afford to fall behind by much
