If you doubt my contention that Mitt Romney is going to win a landslide and that his choice of Paul Ryan and his decision to seek a mandate for enacting Ryan's program will nationalize the election and give our dynamic duo coattails of the sort that Reagan had in 1980, ponder the implications of my post from last night Then and Now; read Niall Ferguson's attack on Obama in Newsweek; take a look at Glenn Thrush's piece on Politico, which is entitled Obama Campaign Roiled by Conflict; and consider this column from The Washington Post, which is entitled Why Ryan Might be Right about Medicare.
The press is beginning to distance itself from our tinpot Messiah. The quarrels that are wreaking havoc on his campaign reflect the fact that his strategy is failing abysmally. And Ryan and Romney are beginning to be treated in the mainstream press as serious men with a plan for meeting the present crisis.
There is a simple rule in politics. You cannot beat someone with no one; and, because he lacks an agenda for a second term and a plan for confronting our fiscal and our economic crisis, The One is rapidly becoming no one.
The old road is rapidly aging . . .
