Drudge linked to a piece from the Washington Examiner which quotes Obama campaign manager Jim Messina saying that if the election were held today Obama would lose to Mitt Romney.

While some political insiders may claim that this is a way to boost fundraising by putting a scare into Obama’s supporters, I can’t help but to smell a rat. Sorry, but this is just the way I think; especially coming from Obama’s people.
Can it be that the Obama machine is trying to beef up Republican support for Mitt Romney because they want to run against Romney? Just when Romney’s inevitability seems to be crumbling like a house of cards, this comes out, hmm…
In light of Mitt ‘I saved the Salt Lake City Olympics’ Romney’s recent troubles in sewing up the nomination, there seem to be some republicans that are worried about the electability of Rick Santorum; at least according to the blogosphere. My friend over at the Lonely Conservative states that she’s hearing from “middle of the road voters” that say they would pull the lever for Romney, but not for Santorum. Read piece here.
I won’t even begin to make believe that I have the answers to any of this. Do I think that Obama can be beat by Santorum? I believe so, but I also believe that Romney and Gingrich can beat him too. Massive voter fraud aside, I just can’t get myself to believe that the majority of voters that aren’t hard-core leftists, hard-core idiots, or hard-core welfare cases will vote to reelect Obama. Just the price of gasoline alone, and Obama’s refusal to do anything about it, should have even unsophisticated voters casting their vote for Anyone but Obama.
But then again, who knows.
