After four years of broken promises, failed economic policies and a foreign policy in tatters; President Barack Obama has come up with a new and exciting idea to save his presidency: an exclamation point. According to a campaign spokeswoman, Team Obama has replaced the period at the end of "Forward" on placards and banners with an exclamation point that reflects "the stakes in this election and energy at our events."
Focusing on ridiculously small things like Big Bird and binders made his campaign a national laughing stock so there's little surprise that their next strategy would be a tiny thing. Why answer tough questions on Libya and the economy when you can pin your hopes on a change in punctuation?
Ironically that exclamation point is appropriate for the president's re-election campaign but not in the way they intended it to be. It conveys a certain frantic desperation that makes sense given Mr. Obama's plummeting job approval rating and Republican Mitt Romney's 51% to 45% lead among likely swing state voters.
