The first part of Morning Joe was a reminder from Obama supporters that Obama is favored to win and that Romney has lost all his mojo. When Hurricane Sandy came along and Obama took a flight to NJ to look at the devastion with Chris Christie, well this changed the whole race, knocked Romney out and placed Obama in the winner's seat. That's the narrative, and the left loves its narratives. Narratives have replaced reality and facts, like the fact that Romney is drawing huge crowds, and like the fact that even with the polls weighted in favor of Democrats Romney is showing tied within the margin of error, and the fact that Romney is showing up winning in some polls, and the fact that Obama went directly to campaigning again after his Christie photo-op and the devastated region has been ignored for the most part by FEMA. But nevermind all that because the Left has a narrative.
I think the Left is truly worried, and this is why they are spouting such exaggerated propaganda. The Left's only hope is that they can discourage the Right from voting by giving the impression it's all over. Moderates like Joe Scarborough are also silently wishing for Obama to win, because they feel the GOP slipping away from them. The moderates thought that Romney would be destroyed, but now they fear he can win -- some are flip-flopping and jumping on the Romney wagon, but most are passive-aggressive, not sure how to react. The Old Republican Party is on the way out, and a new party, led by Romney and Ryan, is on the way in. Neither the Left nor the GOP moderates like this turn of events, but today they will have to live with it. Romney will roll across the country and win by a comfortable margin, regardless of Leftist narratives and moderate mealy-mouthing, and regardless of all the faux-statistics. The American people are not a bunch of crunched numbers in a stats model -- they are living, breathing voters who want to go in a much different direction. Statism and progressivism take a hit today.
