On the eve of the Wisconsin recall, Obama campaign manager Jim Messina has a new message out for the president's supporters. In a video released yesterday, Messina says that everything about the presidential race has gone exactly as expected.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve had people asking me about all of the polls they're seeing. I say the same thing to all of them: We knew this was going to be a tough race. And we knew that once Mitt Romney locked up the nomination, Republicans would get behind him and this race would be tight, just like we always knew it would be.
Reading between the lines here, Messina seems to say that he and his team always knew that they would know what they now know. Get it?
As many pundits have pointed out, the real news in the video appears at the one minute, fifteen second mark when Wisconsin shows up as a toss-up state on the campaign's electoral map. Who knew? Apparently team Obama did all along.
