28. I've been questioning the neck and neck media horse race for months.

I know there are Obama devout haters who would vote for a ressurected Richard Nixon before they would cast a Democratic ballot this fall, but all I hear from Team Romney is "don't vote for me".

On every issue from immigration to gay rights, Romney cedes the edge to Obama by avidly standing firm against the voting bloc. He speaks of union members as if they are a national threat, and tells young people his White House will ignore their concerns. His only olive branch to women is that while he "supports" them, he will have to walk back every gain they've struggled for in the last 50 years.

Poor people are told they will see relief through a form of tough love that involves termination of benefits, and the elderly can expect deep cuts in social security under a Romney administration. People losing their homes to predator banks are advised by Romney to learn to swim through the financial tide that sweeps over them and expect no help from his Oval Office.

In nearly every case exept the uber-wealthy and bigotted middle aged white males expecting some magic trickle down, the Romney message is "vote for the other guy", but the media still portrays the race as a dead heat. I suspect the reason is the same as when Don King promotes a lopsided bout as the "fight of the millenium". To keep us tuned in.
