Barack - The Wizard of Obama - Wall Street Journal - Perhaps Barack Obama can likewise reassert himself in Tuesday evening's town hall in Long Island. But his problem is this: In Denver he didn't just lose a debate—he lost the carefully cultivated illusion of a larger-than-life figure who was Lincoln and FDR and Moses all wrapped in one. Mostly this image was the making of his own immodesty, starting the night he clinched the 2008 Democratic nomination. Mr. Obama might have simply declared victory and congratulated Hillary Clinton on a valiant fight. Instead it became the backdrop for one of his more infamous egoisms. History, he said, would look back at his victory as the moment "the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.".....And then came this month's debate in Denver.
That night, the American people watched "the smartest guy in the room" struggle to put together a simple declarative sentence, and then ask the moderator to move onto another topic after Mitt Romney had given a strong statement about jobs and growth and tax revenues.
Some 67 million Americans were watching on TV. What they saw was the scene from the Wizard of Oz, when Dorothy's dog pulls back the curtain to reveal there is no wizard at all, just a man from the Midwest who pumped himself up into something far beyond his mortal self—and got the whole of Oz to believe it. In the two remaining debates, Mr. Obama will surely be more assertive, more competitive, and more engaged than he was in round one. But this time the curtain has been pulled back and the aura is gone. That means Mr. Obama's Republican opponent—for the first time in two presidential contests—will finally be contesting a mere mortal, not a wizard of his own Oz. Read more.........

Commentary: Jay Severin - Five Reasons Why It's President Romney - The Blaze - I spent 25 years on the campaign and media side of the football. I can offer you play-by-play or Color. I’m feeling generous, here’s both: five reasons (the political professionals) believe why it will be President Romney.
(1) Political change happens, but suspension of the laws of gravity does not. Over a lifetime advising candidates in this country and abroad, some things have never changed:
-The oldest, most significant question in history of U.S. public opinion polling: Asked of voters “Is the country on the right or wrong track?” No incumbent underwater on this question–including very impressive candidates for dog catcher–gets re-elected. For more than two years, across the board, voter response to this central question has consistently been greater than 2 to 1 wrong track. -”Independents.” Pretend what you wish, independents weren’t born politically a-sexual. The vast majority of them are, and will vote, Republican.
-Much like “right/wrong track,” one of the profound metrics or indicators in a presidential campaign is a president who cannot hit 50 percent approval among voters. Obama has consistently failed to reach 50 percent in over two years. Read more.........
