    Earlier today, I wrote about the apparent (but preliminary) vindication of the Clint Eastwood strategy, in terms of viewership and impact on voter choice. However, the cultural impact of Eastwood’s empty-chair routine might be the biggest gain for Republicans from his appearance.
    Paul Ryan had a brilliant line about college graduates being stuck in their childhood bedrooms, staring at “faded posters” of Barack Obama and Hope and Change.

    This cycle, we have the empty-chair Presidency, thanks to Eastwood, and Investors Business Daily’s Michael Ramirez puts his Pulitzer Prize-winning talents to expanding on that theme:

    The editors at IBD join their colleague:

    Meanwhile, Bill Whittle eschews the empty chair imagery for Obama in his new Afterburner and uses another — The Incredible Shrinking Man.
    The man who four years ago commanded arenas of adoring crowds now can’t fill his own nomination-speech venue

    all of it here

    So you would like him to stop talking to the public and stop campaigning? I'm shocked :rolleyes:

    Yes it does! It also offers some links to other interesting comments (or lack thereof) from Obama's top man...Axlerod.

    Video: Axelrod dodges the “better off four years ago” question; Update: Video fixed « Hot Air

    Way to dodge the question, David!:clap2:

    Of course the liberals here will likely dismiss what he said because he said it on Fox News.:D
