Our country has such a short attention span that in 4 years no one but us will remember. I mean perfect example is the fact that Rmoney is even competitive given we are only 4 years removed from B*sh.

They can recoup two days of ratings with "thoughtful" discussions about what turned the election toward Obama at the very end. On Tuesday everyone does fluff news reports about turnout and lines at the polls etc. Starting Tuesday evening they can begin congratulating themselves for their talent for getting it right before election day.

Popular vote will be close enough that they'll justify their crappy coverage. They're all in to chase ratings Tues night.

I thought the narrative was "Romney has the momentum since the first debate, and now has a narrow lead!!!"
