It is tough for Obama, because he can't really own his positions. Because if he does, it will get turned against him.
Apparently, people thought that Romney came out better on healthcare. But his healthcare policy is a mess. He doesn't have a freaking clue. He just went and lied about medicare, and Obama being a chicken didn't call him out on it.
You know why Obama has to cut Medicare by 800 billion? Because it is freaking broken. But if Obama said that, everyone would get so scared and panicked and would rush off to Mitt.
Look at the budget deficit. Obama said what an adult says: we have to cut spending, and raise taxes. That is the only way to do it.
Romney sounds like a child, or a retard. He's going to balance the budget with only tax cuts, no defense-related cuts, no medicare cuts, no SS cuts, and no medicaid cuts? Fantasy. Lunacy. But he sounds so much better, because he promises all the good stuff (tax cuts) with no punishment.
