3. Figured it would be a 'let's dispirit the base in the form of a cautionary tale!' article...
Yes, Romney could win. No, he's not winning and yes, the odds are stacked against him. We don't need to be told how bad the economy is and how it could sink Obama or that Romney is going to do this or how they're going to steal it from beneath us - all that does is dispirit the base. Sure, don't get overconfident, but also don't go so negative that your own base sees it as useless to vote for Obama.
Liberals can be so damn depressing that it actually hurts rather than helps. We need to stay motivated, but harsh, negative rhetoric motivates no one.
"Obama could lose because the September jobs report might suck!" is not a rallying cry to get us to the polls.
