Obama's Problems Multiply As GOP Frets Over Romney

For way too long, the Republicans refuse to tackle the opponent and point out the obvious wrongs and flaws, in the name of "honor". And they get beat up by their opponents and the media, and cower in the corner. I am sick to death of "conservative" pundits like Bill Kristol who see the glass half empty, and never see the possibilities of holding Democrats' feet to the fire. They have created an inferno, and yet no one in the Republican party, whether in leadership or a professional pundit, point out the obvious. They seem to forget what McCain lost by refusing to talk negatively about Obama.

That is not why McCain lost. He lost because of 8 years of Bush-bashing, and Obama's Change button worked. He was seen as an old white guy versus making history with a young black guy. McCain also was the other half of the McCain/Kennedy amnesty bill that caused him to lose the Independent vote, which is why the Democrats did not go there when they had all the majorities. It would have hurt their re-election efforts with the Independents this coming election. The Democrats put their own re-elections over the Hispanics, which comes as no surprise.

LIMA, Ohio - As the candidates arrive in the Buckeye State for several days of critical campaigning, President Obama is enjoying more than just a lead in most polls. He's also enjoying Republican insiders slamming Mitt Romney for various faults, real and perceived, while potentially huge problems for the president -- the investigation into what happened at the Libyan consulate attack, a devastating blow suffered by U.S. forces in Afghanistan, and Obama's lack of a plan to deal with the coming entitlement crisis, to name just three -- go largely undiscussed in much of the press.

As far as Libya is...
