Let’s get serious. Time for some Peter Drucker: “Checking the results of a decision against its expectations shows executives what their strengths are, where they need to improve, and where they lack knowledge or information.” It seems Obama did not have the toolset to gauge what can be promised and what can be delivered. No doubt Romney studied Drucker and today he has no expectations handicap. Indeed, it seems that Romney makes a point of setting expectations low. Republicans certainly didn’t expect much of him, liberals expect much less, and Romney is in no hurry to correct those biases. Setting the bar low and clearing it handily is always better than knocking the bar down outright.
