The Election is Getting Smaller and Smaller

Another week, another mind-boggling meme from our Commander-in-Chief. This time, President Obama and his team are mocking Mitt Romney for using the phrase “women in binders” to describe how he launched a special effort to seek out the resumes of women to hire for his administration as governor of Massachusetts. Sure, it came out in a funny way, but to seize on that phrase and make it a campaign theme is astonishingly small and unserious for a presidential race.

I am often reminded of what Obama said at the 2008 DNC: “If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things.”  Every day, his campaign is making it smaller and smaller and the President’s poll numbers keep dropping and dropping.
