Jim Messina, Obama's campaign manager, now concedes that they KNEW that they could not win on Obama's record, so they set out to relentlessly trash Romney...Obama approved the strategy. Messina conceded that this scorched earth approach was high risk-- but it worked-- (my paraphrase here) they conned voters AGAIN, just in a different way from hopey-changey, Wizard Of Ozbama mythology! They succeeded, largely, via the negative-- by suppressing the vote by 10 million, compared to what Obama got last time. His vote totals were DOWN among all but Hispanics, who he has CLEARLY snookered.
Barack Obama won a moderately close victory over Mitt Romney on Tuesday. But oddly, nothing much has changed. The country is still split nearly 50/50. There is still a Democratic president, and an almost identically Democratic Senate at war with an identically Republican House, in a Groundhog Day America.

Obama's win did not really reflect affirmation of his first term, given that the president made only halfhearted efforts to defend Obamacare, the stimulus, huge Keynesian deficits and his attempts to implement cap-and-trade. So if there is a second-term agenda, even Obama supporters don't quite know what it will be.
