Barack Breaks Ahead

During most of his administration, Barack Obama has endured constant criticism about wars, about unemployed folk, about whether he was born in America, whether he is a Muslim or Christian and certainly about going into debt. Mitt Romney offers America a solution– make the rich richer and the poor poorer. Why change what is working? Unfortunately, for Mitt, latest polls reveal the president is now more popular than Romney by a vote of 51% to 45%.

The question is: why despite the horrible economic situation do more Americans prefer the current president than a man who claims to be a business genius? Frankly, as long as Mitt Romney gives interviews, talks to audiences, he eventually will say something stupid or insulting to someone. The only reason is Barack Obama is surging ahead is that his opponent is great at surging backward.
