Krauthammer’s Take



Text  



From Special Report with Bret Baier | Tuesday, May 15, 2012

On President Obama’s saying: “Don’t compare me to the Almighty, compare me to the alternative.”

Let me just say in response to what the president said in that clip: I personally have never been tempted to compare Obama to God almighty, but I’m glad he’s urging me and others not to. And… I think it shows a certain humility — which is refreshing in this presidency.

On Mitt Romney’s ability to capitalize on voters’ concern for the economy:

Look, I think it’s very clear from the poll you showed that Romney has this advantage – ten points – on the economy.

Interesting: It’s a [poll] question that doesn’t ask “Are you better off than you were?” – the classic Reagan question – it’s [about] where you’ll be in four years. That’s a much stronger positive if you’re Romney….

As long as he sticks on the economy, explains  what he’s going to do and runs almost exclusively on that, he can win. I think he’s got discipline and, I would even add, the dullness and the stolidity to stay on that right to the end — despite all the urging that he get all sexy and interesting.
