SEPTEMBER SURPRISE: Noemie Emery writes:
On Sept. 15, 2008, Barack Obama was behind in the polls, caught off balance by the Sarah Palin selection and in trouble for the first time since his nomination. Then the financial collapse blindsided his rival, caused a huge civil war in the Republican Party, and dropped the presidency into his lap.
“It wasn’t the first time blind luck seemed to help Obama,” Emery adds.
No doubt given the saturation coverage it received, that Romney’s 47 percent clip was intended to be a September gift to the president by his MSM surrogates, designed to once again leave Obama’s opponent dead in the water. But it’s tough to generate righteous indignation on a mass scale when over half the country thinks you’re right.
