Thats right, weve seen all this before: the Democrat campaigns left and governs center-right. The Republican challenger campaigns right (Im a severe conservative) and debates center-left. If you watched the second debate, you got to see Romney handing out contraceptives and Pell grants like so much popcorn and beer at a Giants game. The media eats this all up and spits it back out as a horse race, too close to call. (Climate change versus no climate change? Also a horse race too close to call.) Like my grandfather (or was it my conscience?) used to say: If you think the media is liberal, its working.
