    Pretty clear to me, yes. Also shows based on the past record in the LA Times article, how the official Presidential activities are subordinate to politics. They fear a headline tomorrow:

    Romney sweeps Super Tuesday States. Is on a roll.

    They need this split headline instead:

    Romney success yesterday. Obama discuss key issues of the day.

    I do wonder if the non-stop Romney robo calls have turned would be Romney voters off enough to vote for someone else?

    Wait a second, I have a right to know what "ENCHANTS THE PRESIDENT"?

    I don't think it's about fear. Just smart politics to manage the news cycle.

    Make no mistake, President Obama is already in full campaign mode

    President Obama is like the kid brother who spins cartwheels behind the bride and groom, hoping to get in the picture.
    ...
    While these powerfully political maneuvers are vintage Obama/Axelrod tactics, they also reveal acute anxiety about the upcoming election.

    President Obama is in full campaign mode, and has been for months, even though his competitor is yet to emerge.

    Why?

    Because the president has to run against his record, and that may be the toughest opponent of all.

    Team Obama is taking nothing for granted, nor should it.

    While Republicans are lamenting and Democrats are celebrating the destructive GOP primaries, the president polls only a few points ahead of Romney in a head-to-head match-up. -- That’s hardly impressive given the enormous drubbing Romney has taken in recent weeks at the hands of the press and of his rivals.

    With Super Tuesday upon us, the betting is that Mr. Romney will move closer to winning the nomination.

    This is not good news for the White House.

    Well it wasn't intended as a prediction, more of a sample headline. I can understand your pleasure at a divided Republican field, given the extremely mediocre incumbent that you support. An incumbent who champions divisiveness and class warfare. I actually feel a bit of pity for those who believe the future of this country is a mediocre nanny state.

    Not at all. Take a look at the Fox article lined a few up. I have confidence that the electorate will understand the differences and reject the scourge of progressivism and socialism. It is a cancer that infects both the country and the minds. Opium for the masses.

    OK, fair enough. Here is a source you probably feel greater kinship with.

    A reluctant Republican Party is increasingly showing signs of rallying around Mitt Romney in the presidential race, with leading members of Congress and influential conservatives signaling that a coast-to-coast burst of voting on Super Tuesday should mark a moment to start concentrating on defeating President Obama.

    Two leading fiscal conservatives declared their loyalties for the first time on Sunday, with one, Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, the majority leader, saying, "Mitt Romney is the man for this year." The other, Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, described Mr. Romney as "best equipped to solve the urgent problems before us." John Ashcroft, the former Missouri governor and senator who served as attorney general under President George W. Bush, is poised to join Mr. Romney's team on Monday, informs New York Times.

    I think 2016 will have a focus more on Congress, as an incumbent Republican holds the White House.

    icon_lol.gif As soon as you find someone who can beat Obama, I'll get nervous, because Mitt "Anne has a couple of Cadillacs" Romney, ain't it. icon_lol.gif
