Reality. Now why do right wingers deny reality? Is it magical thinking? The Right wet itself over the 1st debate, but now all of a sudden debates don't matter? I think things tightened up to where many people and internal polls long ago said they would. What does it all mean? The media regurgitates GOP and DNC talking points and passes it off as News and Opinion. Obama is a weak incumbent, but the GOP base in all it's collective wisdom chose the Mittster over all others. Why? Money and message: lots of Super Pac Money and Romney repeated lies about the pack of GOP Primary Candidates convinced them Romney was conservative enough and strong enough to whoop the President. How stupid can the base be? Pretty stupid. They look to Whacko Donald Trump for a rescue.
