ORACULAR SPECTACULAR: Election predictions from the PJ Media columnists.
My gut says that Romney will win. That’s not scientific, but neither, really, are polls. I got an email the other day from a friend in New York who wanted reassurance. I told him that Michael Barone was predicting a Romney victory, if he wanted reassurance about who would win. But I also offered another kind of reassurance: Regardless of the outcome, it’s a certainty that we’ll have more fun over the next four years than Barack Obama will, and regardless of how the election grows, the Tea Party movement and the popular resistance to Big Government will continue to grow. You can pretty much take that one to the bank.
UPDATE: Related: Barack Obama, The Not-So-Happy Warrior. “The dissonance [between Obama in 2008 and 2012] is so obvious. … Can you think of a president who ran more different campaigns the first and second times? I’ve tried. I can’t.”
