Mitt Romney has moved out to an eight-point lead over President Obama in North Carolina after the two men were virtually tied a month ago.
I don't think that it's anything that Romney is doing. This election has always been and will always be about Barack Obama. Everything Obama does, everything his team tries, is backfiring.
It’s becoming evident that Obama did not run a brilliant campaign in 2008. McCain was running scared. He and his staff were so intimidated by the fear that they would be called a racist in that campaign that they simply refused to engage with Obama. The only person who tried to fight Obama was Sarah Palin and she was demonized by the Left aided and abetted by McCain’s staff like Steve Schmidt who preferred Obama and hated her. Romney and the new media are not afraid of Obama and Palin is helping the House and Senate elect more Conservative candidates.
