I hope you're right and I'm wrong.

Reader comment on item: NRO Symposium: "Fatal Arab Spring"
in response to reader comment: Romney is ahead

TheHat, I sincerely hope you're right and I'm wrong. But, I wonder if the continued good showing by Obama simply doesn't prove that in these hard times, a near-majority of Americans would rather bash wealthy people than question the policies of a media-created charismatic image. The O has been bad for our country, his handling of the terrorist attack in Benghazi has been marked by lies, spin, and a greater willingness to bully obscure Americans than to stand up for the First Amendment or find the perps, so I'm certainly not going to vote for him. But I'm starting to clench my teeth and get ready for a rough four years.
