I knew President Romney was unlikely to champion civil liberties, but I never imagined he would claim the right to kill people he did not like. I woke up terrified. "President Romney is trying to kill me with drones," I screamed.
The Obama Administration has learned its lesson: not to drop all the effective communication strategies after Election Day. They're continuing to use campaign communication practices to rally and sustain public support for the Democratic agenda.
The Obama campaign strategically decided to focus on the power of one's inner circle to communicate a message, while the Romney campaign tried to rely on the power of paid media, focusing on advertising to get their message across.

As an Obama supporter living in Brooklyn, I sometimes feel useless. Even with Romney's recent surge, surely the President has New York in bag. Fortunately, my wife and I have a second home in Sarasota, Fla. That's where the action is.

I know we're supposed to be celebrating the Obama Comeback Narrative today, but this piece from Sam Graham-Felsen in today's Washington Post, concerning the outcast state of the volunteer base at Organizing for America, isn't playing along.
The arguments of former loyalists like Graham-Felsen are striking because they not only appeal to the idealism of the Obama campaign, they also press blunt warnings about the president's political survival.
The Blue Dogs are right about campaign strategy in some conservative districts -- but they greatly overstate their case. Granularity is usually lost in our political narrative, and the numbers suggest subtle, diverging politics.
