I dislike the current tendency to hyperbole, but having been a political observer since the ’60s I can state with confidence that I have never seen a more spectacular train wreck than the Romney campaign.

Many readers despise the president, but most honest observers would agree that given his vulnerability and situation, Barack Obama has run a crisp and efficient campaign.

Considering that Mitt Romney is presenting himself primarily as a successful businessman, this display of utter incompetence is stupefying. Voters may wish to think deeply before putting him and his staff at the helm of the nation.
