For all his invocations of hope and change, President Obama has governed as the last President of the 20th century. He hasn’t reformed government, he has merely made it larger. His re-election campaign reeks of intellectual and policy exhaustion. It released a purported second-term agenda with more glossy pictures of him than text, just 14 days before the election. His campaign continually resorts to the small-minded and demagogic in defense of a manifestly inadequate status quo.
Is it just me, or does it seem that Mitt Romney has been elevated through the campaign process, while Barack Obama has been diminished? If so, that may be a good predictor of what happens on Tuesday.
