President Obama's reelection prospects look grim. The New York Times, in its account of Saturday's campaign launch, reported:
Yikes. "[A]n aging rock star." From the president's friends at the New York Times!
And if President Obama is an aging rock star (perhaps the Times's Mark Landler was thinking of Bob Dylan singing the 60s anthem, "The Times They Are A-Changin'," at the Obama White House), what does that make Mitt Romney?
He is not just like a rock star—he is a star performer in his own right. Here he is in Iowa, serenading a rapt audience with … “America the Beautiful.”
