1. They have to keep up their meme

IT'S CLOSE, IT'S NECK AND NECK!

President Obama campaigining against Mitt Romney is like him campaigning agaist a paperdoll.

2. YUP ... lots of 24/7 pundits lose their jobs if an Obama lanslide becomes obvious.

And the only jobs those pundits care about are their own.

They will say ANYTHING to keep the race close.

3. so was Gore against Bush

and Kerry against Bush.

I ignore Greenfield and all other pundit analyses, but from polls it looks like it's going to be close.

4. Holy shit -- I actually think he has some POSSIBLE valid observations, but I'm horrified

by the comments. With the exception of 2 or 3, they're all anti-Obama. I'm hoping this isn't a true representation of the mind set of the masses.

I'd be somewhat concerned that the house wasn't packed to the rafters, but that in and of itself isn't cause for too much alarm -- just odd, IMO.

And it is appearing that Obama's view on gay marriage is totally politically motivated at this point -- but so what? I give them ALL a pass for politics with an election on the horizon. Give him a break on this -- I'm hoping that after his reelection he'll come out in strong support of it. (Not that he can 'make it so', so ultimately it's not something he should be held responsible for.)

5. Greenfield's reaching. The only valid point, IMO, is his "view" on Gay Marriage...

...which is little more than an election year campaign stunt.

The rest of his points are simply weak and unconvincing in the context he presents them in.

10. But even then, he's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. He's taking a chance

 

either way:

Come out in support of gay marriage, and you've lost many moderate Republicans and perhaps some minority groups who have "religious" objections to gay marriage.

Don't come out in support of gay marriage, and the LGBT community and many liberals will be upset with you.

Either way, this man can't win.

As for R-Money, why doesn't the Corporate Media give him a litmus test on his views of gay marriage and abortion. Why? Because they are shilling for Mitt.

And, he does seem like the Corporate Media's meme that Obama took too much credit for the bin Laden killing has worked on Americans. This is swiftboating just like they did John Kerry. I don't know what Obama can do to beat it. There's simply way too much money to combat these lies coming from the Right.

8. Four reasons why I haven't listened to a word Jeff Greenfield has said for 12 years

(1) He hasn't had a single sensible thing to say
(2) He's not all that bright.
(3) He lost all credibility during the 2000 election season
(4) Do you remember Media Whores Online?*

I still want to know who was responsible for the late great, much lamented Media Whores. It was a leader in its field and a pure joy to read.

his miserable 500 person turnout in Ohio a day after his campaign laughs at Obama getting 14,000

17. Right. What bad week?



Only in their minds...........

Obama was on fire back in 2008 and people were very excited to see change from the Bush years on the horizon. It's only natural that the enthusiasm might not be the same nearly 4 years later but President Obama's crowds seem heftier than Romney's crowds ever will be, at least outside of the RNC. They're seriously suggesting that we be worried that he's *only* drawing crowds of 14K? Seriously?

19. That Was One of the Most Weakest Political Analysis That I've Ever Read

Paper thin substance. Greenfield stole money after he filed that report. A SNL skit??? Really?? That's what he's using??

20. Huffpost and Yahoo news are 2 sites we should avoid.

Little more than Fox News lite.
