Tom Bevan of Real Clear Politics believes the election has shifted, and the Obama Team must now come from behind to win the re-election. The economic news has been uniformly wretched, Obama has been making gaffes by the boat load, and there’s not very much time to turn it all around. Blaming Bush for all of the world’s ills is not a recipe for success. So far, the Administration has not come up with a an optimistic vision of the future. And really, how can they? Europe is imploding, inflation is around the corner, and the populace is furious with the governing class. Perhaps this is one of those rare generational shifts that periodically occurs in the American political landscape. Or perhaps, it’s just another election where nothing much will really change, except now there’s no “hope for change.”
