So, now that you believe we have lost our mind, an explanation follows. It is rather simple when you look back at the Obama team handlers.
The debate which Romney "won" was all set up. Obama is an actor, he plays a role and for this one, he should win an Academy Award. Had he won the first one, it would put lots of pressure on him to do as well in the next two. However, if he "blew" the first one, his next performance had only to be a bit better and the press would anoint him as the "comeback kid." And when he comes on really strong for the third debate, they will essentially call off the elections. This is all a scripted plan by the Alelrod/Obama team.
The ink was hardly dry on the papers who knocked Obama for a poor debate performance when the unemployment data was reported. This will help the "dictator" announce that his programs were working, that Romney's wouldn't, and that he was going to win the election. In other words, he announced "I'm back!!",
The team that Romney Inc. is facing will do anything, say anything to get their man elected. If it takes "blowing a debate" to make their man look better, it will be done. If they "prevail" on government statisticians to "fudge" the numbers, they will do it. This is Chicago politics at its best and we have not seen the coupe d' etat, yet.
We have written before and want to repeat it here, the Axelrod team has something on Romney which will be revealed in the next 15-20 days. The "October Surprise" will be so devastating, so demoralizing, so outrageous that even if it is completely untrue, it will ruin Romney's chances for the Presidency. This has been their pattern in previous elections and we expect it this time, also. What it will be, is anyone's guess. However, it will be a barn burner to which Romney will not recover.
So, for all of those who saw a chance for Romney to win (we did too), lets hope that there will be no October surprise, that Obama will be as flat and uninteresting in the next two debates and in November, the unemployment numbers will be restated, higher. These are hopes but we doubt they will be realized.
