THIS SHOULD HELP WITH THE PICADOR STRATEGY: Obama’s Romney Revulsion Poses Risks for Reelection. “According to a book due out later this month by Glenn Thrush, a Politico writer with deep connections inside Obamaland, Obama really, really doesn’t like soon-to-be Republican nominee Mitt Romney.”
Romney’s trying to take something Obama feels entitled to. Romney can use this emotional response to provoke Obama into saying or doing something stupid. But honestly, they seem to have something in common: “While most people in politics are drawn to the field because they are intensely social animals. Not Romney. He opted to follow his father’s footsteps into politics, but he does not seem to crave contact the way natural politicians do.” Sounds like Obama.
