SO IT'S GHWB 1992 BUT WITH PRO-QUEER AND PRO-ABORTION THROWN IN?:

What Will President Obama Say? (ANDREW ROSENTHAL, 5/18/12, NY Times)

So what will the president tell Americans to get them to vote for him?

Mr. Obama can go on energizing his base by doing things like endorsing marriage equality and protecting women's reproductive rights. And he needs to. Mr. Hart pointed that Republicans are much more focused on this election than Democrats.

He can also argue the country is indeed recovering from the recession--although his aides know he has to be careful on this point, since progress has been slow.

The president can also try to associate Mr. Romney with the failed economic policies of George W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan before him. I think it's obvious those policies were a failure, but the mythology of Republican competence in economic affairs is still alive and well.

One assumes this column is a hoax.
