Obama’s Hubris Will be His Undoing

Erick Erickson @ Redstate:

Barack Obama has lost North Carolina and Florida.

His ground game is at near parity in early voting with the GOP, the GOP is more energized, and he is going to lose both.

But he will not stop spending money in those two states and redirect the resources to Ohio, which is now a must win state for him. He will not do it because he does not want news stories to come out in the last two weeks of the campaign that he’s closing up show in two battleground states.

That would convey weakness and demoralize the base.

But they are losing. And in fact, in North Carolina, they are winding down slowly and quietly knowing the GOP has matched their early voting operation and will get people to the polls.

The Obama camp does not want any news stories to come out. They know if they are too open about their plans the GOP will get very loud about the Obama team’s retreat across the map, and the media will be forced to cover the retreat to save face. So they will continue spending some resources in states they cannot win to avoid news stories they find more damaging.

    Yep. Whom the Gods would destroy, they first make mad.
    It is the problem with continuing to inflate a balloon. Eventually the balloon pops.
    Overweening pride and ambition will get you in the end.
    Has happened before. A certain Pharaoh decided that all Hebrew boy babies should die.
    Did not work out so well. All first-born Egyptian babies died.
    Has happened many times before.

    I read that somewhere.

    Paying close attention just to the 3 debates, we were provided ample evidence of an individual whose intellectual accumen was far from what the media advertised for 5 years.

    We saw a President repeating embarassingly insulting talking points.
    No thoughtful insights.
    No demonstration of deep knowledge on any topic — no ad-libbing for this President.
    Personal attacks were not remotely clever, but were more of the dumb thuggish variety.

    The handlers are stressed out that their creation is becoming transparent, just an average guy who can preach from a telepromptered pulpit. This same ego long ago believed the platitudes his handlers lathered on him, and when the MSM bowed at his feet, the hubris floated to meet the Sun.

    He now believes he is intelligent, and his words, coming from an uninformed, inexperienced, and uninquisitive mind, are treating his followers like bleating sheep.
