Romney fumbles Obama's open mic gaffe

Libby and I decided on a house today (in Bath, close to her parents and mine), so no full post today. Here's an article about Romney's utter failure to capitalize on Obama's being caught on tape telling the Russian President he will have more flexibility after the election. It should have been a big problem for Obama, given the sense among conservatives that Obama's only pretending to be non-radical and is only waiting until after the election to turn us into a socialist state, but Romney stepped on the story by calling Russia our greatest geopolitical foe, which is just silly.

It's things like this that give me hope for the election.

Obama does need to be more careful though. Fuckin' pitchers and catchers put their baseball gloves over their mouths every time they have a conference on the mound, so Obama shouldn't discuss these things in public, even if there aren't microphones around.
