23. Let's take a deep breath...

and consider a couple of things. First, the recent poll that had President Obama up by 14 points in Wisconsin is an outlier, I believe. And if Wisconsin is not in play, then why did he go there? Has he gone to ANY state not on the battleground map?

Second, when I watch Ed, Rachel and Lawrence at night they show Romney crowds (although they never mention where or when those events are (or were) taking place. I never see a panoramic view so I'm never sure how many people are there. I'm reasonably certain that if the crowds were as pitifully small as you believe that they would make sure to show them. I will go so far as to say that the crowds do appear enthusiastic, certainly more so than you are giving them credit for.

I mention these observations only to caution against complacency. Romney The Robot still has plenty of outside groups and fanatical anti Obamians who are probably waiting until October 1 to unleash all that campaign cash. My guess is that the money will be concentrated in Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Virginia and Colorado. We have to be vigilant and again guard against complacency.

That said, I hope on November 7th we wake up to 4 more years of this excellent President along with majorities in the House and Senate. Forward!
