Two questions. Is this an over-reaction to the Europe trip, Romney's so-called gaffe-fest? Or is this a firewall to counter a last-ditch VP switch to Hillary for the quickly collapsing Obama?

OBAMA: ROMNEY WANTS VP PETRAEUS
Tue Aug 07 2012 12:01:02 ET
President Obama whispered to a top fundraiser this week that he believes GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney wants to name Gen. David Petraeus to the VP slot!
"The president wasn't joking," the insider explains to the DRUDGE REPORT.
A Petraeus drama has been quietly building behind the scenes.
For me, I have a lot of respect for Petraeus. But I've heard him give speeches. There's no way to jazz this guy up. Scantily-clad chorus girls couldn't rescue some of those speeches. When they said that Romney wanted to go for someone "boring" as VP, I guess they weren't kidding.
I'd be happy with him. He was my original choice for president, several years back.
