We’ve Seen this All Before
The presidential race is starting to heat up so I thought I’d provide this easy checklist of the memes to expect in the months to follow:
-Sure, Romney has the Super PACs but they are horribly off message. GOP has made a big mistake by not investing in the actual, official campaign.
-(A) Ann or (B) Michelle is unhappy/difficult
-(A) Ann or (B) Michelle is more popular than her husband and party activists wish she was at the top of the ticket
-Bill Clinton is stepping outside his lane

-W reappears and says something that upsets the race
-Barbara Bush says something that upsets the race
-This is not as exciting as ’08
-Romney or Obama is either overprepared or underprepared for the debates
-The debate moderator asked stupid questions
-Romney’s VP pick, his wife, or family members have done something controversial/unorthodox
-Obama will “wag the dog”
