A top Romney spokeswoman said the Obama campaign’s allegations that he misled the public over his tenure at Bain Capital are “reckless and wild,” and a sign that the president’s campaign is “unraveling.”
“The only confusion that there is on this issue is from the Obama campaign,” the Romney campaign's communications director, Gail Gitcho, told Fox News Channel’s "America’s Newsroom" on Friday.
“The Obama campaign has issued these reckless and wild accusations that Mitt Romney is a criminal and a felon. That just simply doesn’t pass the laugh test," she continued, "and frankly it just shows us signs of a desperate and unraveling campaign for them to continue along these lines when there have been independent fact-checkers from all over the country who are saying they are running a dishonest attack.”
Yesterday, Sean Trende argued why you probably won't see any unraveling from either campaign.
The gist? Incumbents are too well known to move the needle appreciably via campaigning and advertising, and the economy isn't bad enough to produce a huge win from a challenger.
Thus, the margin of error election will probably stay that way.
