Time: Dems Now Believe Obama Could Lose

From those champions of a free press at Time Magazine:

Between the Lines

With five months until Election Day, Barack Obama faces a grim new reality: Republicans now believe Mitt Romney can win, and Democrats believe Obama can lose

Last week’s anemic job-creation and economic-growth data was sandwiched between two Bill Clinton specials: in one television interview, the 42nd President lauded Romney’s business record as "sterling"; in another, he veered from the Obama line on the extension of Bush-era tax cuts…

Notice how Democrats only ever veer into the truth accidentally.

The failure to unseat Wisconsin’s Republican governor Scott Walker in a recall election was another bad sign for Democrats since it will rev up conservatives nationwide, including the kind of millionaires who gave big bucks to Walker’s effort

You see? Walker only won because of Republican fat cats.

Veteran Democratic strategists from previous presidential bids and on Capitol Hill now wonder if the Obama re-election crew is working with the right message

It’s always about messaging with Democrats. It never occurs to them that the American public might not want what they are selling.

The White House remains on a rough political trajectory, with a potentially adverse Supreme Court decision on the Obama health care law looming, additional bad economic news from Europe coming and more worrisome polling pending

The news media should just stick to exit polls.

Another danger for the President: the media freak show. Stalking that circus’ center ring is Matt Drudge, whose caustic website continues to help drive the news cycle with an emphasis on negative, mocking items about Obama and Vice President Joe Biden and their wives.

The latest sign of Drudge’s potency: Ed Klein, the author of the virulently anti-Obama book The Amateur, was barred from major TV appearances and mostly ignored by the mainstream media, but the book’s prominence on Drudge’s website propelled it to the No. 1 slot on the New York Times nonfiction list.

In other words, despite the news media’s best efforts to suppress it, a book that actually gives us a some background information on Barack Obama is actually reaching the public. Isn’t that outrageous? What a ‘freak show’!

By the way, lest we forget, this same Mark Halperin wrote a book about the 2008 elections called ‘Game Change’? And Halperin’s book put an emphasis on negative, mocking items about McCain and his Vice President candidate Sarah Palin and their spouses. This book was promoted endlessly by the news media and was even turned into a TV movie. (Which, of course, bombed.)

But of course the real reason ‘journalists’ like Mark Halperin are so outraged is because they don’t control the news cycle any longer. That is why they hate Matt Drudge. Drudge could cost them this election!
