Shock - Obama Campaign Thinks Guy Not Running Was Most Credible Opponent

Marc Ambinder serves as the Obama campaign messenger of the day, with an uncritical account of what Team Obama supposedly believes as to the Republican field. 

You will not be surprised to find that Team Obama was most concerned with a candidate who is not running:
Gov. Mitch Daniels is a lot of things to a lot of people, but to President Obama’s political team, the Hoosier was the most credible Republican spokesperson on economic recovery, the man whose results as Indiana governor would compare most favorably to the man in office. Now that he’s not running, the Republican field lacks a credible Obama antithesis.
Oh please.  This is just nonsense.  If Daniels were in the race, team Obama would be pushing the message that some other guy who was not running would be the "most credible" opponent.

This is just part of Team Obama's Operation Demoralize.  And it has many media helpers.

  1. It's always interesting to de-const5ruct a political opponents "favorite opposing candidate" pronouncements.
    1. It's almost always based on in-house wishful thinking.
    2. It's based on what the opponent thinks our goals and objectives are, or at least should be.
    3. It reflects their own values instead of ours.
    4. It is almost always offered up as an element of psych warfare.

    Great fun, but then so is fantasy baseball.

  2. If Chris Christie isn't credible, why do they need to dig up dirt on him?

  3. Not to mention that Daniels could still get in at a later date, there are many months left until the primaries.

  4. @Soccer Dad: Maybe they're afraid he'll change his mind. Also, I'm sure they'd love to go back to a dimocrat in NJ next time around so maybe they're starting early (or do they ever stop).
