In the end the Republican Convention came down to two lines: Clint Eastwood saying, “When somebody doesn’t do the job, you gotta let ‘em go.”
And Mitt Romney saying, “Obama wants to save the planet – I want to help your family.”
All the rest – the political rhetoric – was window dressing. The bottom line was Obama hasn’t done his job, the country’s paid the price, and it’s time to replace him.
That leaves President Obama in a hard spot. Next week at the Democratic Convention he can argue the last four years could have been worse. And he can argue Mitt Romney will make the next four years worse. But he can’t argue with the fact that, after four years in office, his Presidency is a failure.
