You expect that with an election and all. But there's some caveats.
The AP newsdroid was talking about "The Obama campaign's plan to retake the Whitehouse."
Not retain the Whitehouse. But retake.
At least they're admitting that Obama was in office, at some point in time.
And of course the newsdroid herself used that blatant language. Democratic operatives with bylines indeed.
Though I wonder why the Progs are so worried. It's not like the Stupid party is a real threat to them, and even if the Stupids won it wouldn't be too different.
Then again, Maoists and Stalanists don't get along either.
