Team Obama: You Know, We Can Win Without Ohio

Via Instapundit, Obama's firewall may be on fire.

[E]ven if Obama loses Ohio, his campaign sees another pathway to the presidency by nailing New Hampshire, Iowa, Wisconsin, Nevada and Colorado.

The first rule of Losing Ohio Club is you don't talk about Losing Ohio Club.

By the way, it will be very hard for Obama to win three of those states (NH, IA, and CO). Colorado, especially, leans to Romney now.

The others are tossups... for now.

Why would Obama be talking about alternate routes to victory not including Ohio?

Obviously, I think, they don't think Ohio is safe. And to talk about losing it... I think they think they're behind.

I saw Sam Stein report on Twitter something I've been thinking about: Romney is pondering saving some of his ad money in order to buy a multinetwork uninterrupted 30 minute block of time for a long-form appeal, like Obama did in 2008.

I don't know. I like the idea of it. I'm just worried about the downside of it (you can't spend that money on tons and tons of ads).

There's one more bit of goofiness I can add to this: The media is already building narratives for Why Obama Lost.

Want to know why? Because, three different liberal writers claim, the media is biased against Barack Obama.

Ah, well, not against Barack Obama per se, but in love with the idea of a Dramatic Storyline, and the storyline of Obama cruising to an easy victory just wasn't exciting enough. So the liberal media made up Mile High Massacre -- just made it up! Romney didn't really shellack him! -- and has run with that story ever since.

Now, if the media loves a good Comeback story, you'd also think they'd love the Obama Comeback story. So why aren't they writing that?

Well, the writer doesn't explain, except to say the media are prisoners of their own Narrative, and their current Narrative is "Romney gaining," so they're sticking with that.

There it is again: the trajectory! We will not let it go. It doesn’t matter if we have failed in achieving many of the basics of campaign coverage, like getting a candidate to cough up a critical mass of tax returns, release his bundler list, and account for his proposals and position shifts with a minimum of detail and coherence. No, we have our trajectory. And dammit, we’re sticking to it.

Like I said: He doesn't explain why. Just asserts that the media, which, frankly, would have gay sex with Obama (even the women in the media would prefer the sex with Obama to be gay sex with Obama), is so in love with this Romney Gaining "trajectory" that they just can't see the real story.

And the real story is, of course, Obama Gaining.

When conservatives spend their time complaining about media bias, we're losing.

When liberals spend their time complaining about media bias, they're collapsing.

Because, seriously, this is the stupidest shit I've ever read and I've read The DaVinci Code.

Once a plot device, now a presidential agenda.
