OBAMA NOW RUNNING AS THE UNDERDOG

WASHINGTON – As the campaign winds down, President Obama will run as the underdog for the next two weeks. Mitt Romney will run as the heir apparent.
Romney’s campaign is playing it cautious, not even indicating whether he will give any network interviews (maybe he will, but if you give no interviews, you can’t make any mistakes, why take the risk).
Obama is being more aggressive, taping the Tonight Show today and giving a live MTV interview on Friday at 5pm New York time.
Both campaigns have essentially unlimited money, and the super PACS also plan huge ad buys. Romney’s campaign is mulling the idea of buying time for his 10 minute bio that aired during the convention.
Obama’s campaign is printing 3.5 million copies of a new 20 page booklet of his promises for the next four years, being mailed to households in swing states. A short version has been posted online. 1.5 million copies will be distributed to campaign field offices.
The travel schedule will be brutal to the battleground states. The president will call undecided voters from Air Force One between stops. Meanwhile, the vice presidential candidates will remain hot on their campaign trails.
Everybody’s aware that early voting’s started in many states, so the most recent thing you’ve said could be the last thing someone hears before they vote. There’s a lot of posturing by the campaigns, pretending what they’re going to do next in terms of ad buys, to fake the other side out – and to fake out the press, too.
A lot of the theme is: Who can you trust?
