My guess is that after Eric Fehrnstrom read this, he refused to stop holding his foul breath and kicking his little Fehrnstrom feet and chewing Mitt's carpet until he was promised cookies, ice cream, and a day's outting at Pixar's new "Brave" movie:
After weeks of scathing back-and-forth between President Barack Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney, [a WaPo/ABC News poll says] a plurality of the American public views the incumbent Democrat as running a more favorable campaign.
Can't you just hear Fehrnstrom protesting the beautiful injustice of it all? Here the Obama campaign has been methodically battering Romney Inc. with a ferocity almost unprecedented in the annals of Democratic politics, and those ... those ... those voters think Obama is, pretty much, the more positive one?
Karma, baby. Pure, political karma.
