Spitzer & Conway debate three core questions: Why did Obama got a 5 point “bounce” after both Conventions? Was Romney’s attack on Obama during a foreign crisis a blip or blunder? Are we “better off” than four years ago? Eliot thinks that the GOP Convention was so dominated by Ryan-like social issues generally that it tainted Romney. Kellyanne argues that the problem in the Middle East is Obama’s policies, not Romney’s comments. Then: Eliot believes we’re of course better off four years to the day after Lehman collapsed.
