Why is there no mention of President Obama’s strong opposition to an insurance mandate when he was just a primary candidate? Everything Romney has done, jobs he had 20 years ago, are all very relevant. But Obama’s history just fades from view as soon as it doesn’t look pretty anymore.

I was just reminded of the file I started on the Obama’s after their intro video at Kerry’s convention where he was presented as the new Kennedy and the missus was dressed in a boucle suit complete with flip hair-do ala Jackie. When he started his campaign for president, all those files disappeared from the internet (that was before I realized that one must copy files and take screen shots as soon as things appear).

Here in Florida, the hoopla about Trayvon Miller has reached epic proportions with our local school administration including the board of ed condoning and abetting student demonstrations even to allowing prayer on school grounds!!!! Information is running around the net that Zimmerman had his gun in his belt and when Miller was pounding him on the ground, his jacket opened and in trying to get the gun, Miller shot himself. That should be very easy to prove or disprove. Either his fingerprints are on the gun or not. Will that evidence ever be allowed to be made public? Doubtful.

Feeling very pessimitic today.

Probably because it wouldn’t help Romney win.

Romney’s 20-year-ago jobs matter because he’s the challenger. For the most part, what matters about Obama is what he’s done while occupying the Oval Office.

Obama will get bloodied in the campaign for Nov., but until that begins, why bother?

Yet that wasn’t the case when Obama was a candidate.

What scares me is that he won’t, that the silence we see here will continue through the election. Even if Romney can bring himself to take a swing at Obama that will either not get reported or will be “explained” to be another typical GOP lie.

I seem to recall plenty about “Obama the community organizer” and much ado about his choice of church. That voters didn’t care as much as you’d like about such things doesn’t mean that they weren’t out there. The birth certificate issue is still active…

A couple of vague details vs. every job Romney has had and 30 years of tax returns.

Further, as I remember those days, “community organizer” what about as descriptive as it got (e.g., the Annenberg Challenge). The Rev. Wright episode was primarily Old Media trying to excuse Obama’s attendance and endorsement. And how much did McCain mention it?

But the jobs issue matters because it matters to Obama’s framing of Romney. Romney was very successful in a grim business, so therefore the obvious strategy is to paint him as an elitist, out-of-touch meanie.

If he’d run a chain of hot dog stands, or was a motivational speaker or middle class grind-made-good, then the strategy would be different and less attention would be paid to those long-ago pursuits.

Which is exactly why Obama’s employment history wasn’t much bruited, except to point out the lack of relevant experience for the Presidency.

About that coverage of Reverend Wright in 2008 — not quite the same thing.
