The Curious Incident of the Mud Not Thrown

And I compare and contrast this non-event to the petty divisiveness of Obama when he sunk to the occasion of the Trayvon Martin shooting with his insipid remark that if he had a son, he'd look like Trayvon. He could have had his "sister souljah" moment, where he became president to all of America and criticized those making the unfortunate occurrence of Martin's death into an unnecessary racial division. But no. That's one big difference between Obama and Romney. And Obama looks poorer for it.

Sometimes turning points in presidential campaigns are scarcely noted at the time. Because they're events that didn't happen, a low road not taken, a tactic not employed, a decisive mistake not made. Like last week's non-event in Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.

Told of a great big, $10 million mudball some of his backers were prepared to throw at his opponent, Mr. Romney said no thank you. Very much.

Naturally, the plan was leaked to the New York Times, the country's leading source of news that never happened, and in this case isn't about to.
