The latest polls show Romney either leading Obama or closing the gap. With all the inconceivably blatant, unbelievably overt flip-flopping, surrogate gaffes, right-wing extremism…HOW CAN THIS BE HAPPENING!?!?!

Romney may say he’s center-right on abortion, but his running-mate is a co-sponsor on bills banning abortion, creating personhood amendments, and advocating intrusive trans-vaginal probes on women. Yet, Romney is supposedly closing in on the polls for women voters…HOW?!?! Do they not read? Or put two and two together?

I understand that the demographic of white males will obviously be slanted toward Romney, but WHY?!?! His foreign policy is all over the place, until recently where it almost mirrored Obama’s…including his timeline for withdrawal from Afghanistan. This is after he’s campaigned for God knows how long about how any timeline for withdrawal is a mistake and giving the enemy an advantage. His economic policy is vague at best; time and again the math doesn’t add up…though Romney & Ryan will tell you different. They always bring up the “six different studies” slogan, but their “studies” are right-wing blog posts that Fox News’ Chris Wallace and Bill Kristol, who also writes for the Weekly Standard, have refuted.

From what I’ve read over the span of this campaign, I understand that moderate Republicans are afraid he’s too extreme, and fringe Right-wingers are afraid he’s too moderate…and this is because Romney is a professional panderer. But these groups of folks have no one left to vote for. They can’t vote for Obama, so, to them, Romney is the most logical choice…the truth, he’s their only choice. They won’t vote for Gary Johnson and Ron Paul hasn’t stolen their hearts and minds…so Romney it is!

Even the African-American vote is not being considered as deadly to Romney as it was to McCain in the last election. Why? From what I gather, Obama didn’t do enough to encourage them, to help the inner-city youth, to promote their welfare. There are multiple arguments to be made here but the crux of it is, the African-American community still feel disenfranchised and that Obama didn’t do enough…To those that feel this way, I say this: What did you want him to do exactly? I’ve talked to many of my African-American friends to see what their feelings are on this matter. Many of them do feel Obama is a good President and will vote for him again, however there were a few that said that they felt he wasn’t strong enough or he was a straw-man and will not vote at all…they refuse to vote for Romney, and they can’t bring themselves to vote for Obama again.

Another thing that is floating out there, is the idea that Obama didn’t work well with a Republican House of Representatives. To that I say, HOW COULD HE?!?!?!?! When a majority of the House say that it will be their one and only goal to make Obama a one-term president and vote against any of the policies he brings to the table…no matter how beneficial for the country it is…HOW DO COMPETE WITH THAT?!?!
