Sound Bite For The Day: "Obama Doesn't Want To Run Against Romney"’s Larry O’Connor caught up with Mr. Shakespeare, Lawrence O’Donnell.

“Romney is the one they don’t want. They know they can beat anybody else. Romney, they think they can beat, but it’s a harder road.”

I could not disagree more. Republicans are running against nationalized health care and are considering running the blueprint to nationalized health care against it. There goes your biggest weapon. David Axelrod has been working this reverse-psychology for the past two months now and everyone on Team Obama has their fingers crossed that it works. I don’t believe something a progressive says just because it sounds like something I want to hear: the Obama campaign afraid of a Republican. Democrats went harder after Cain, that speaks a lot more.
