28. Just one really good lie could turn this election upside down

When Romney ran for governor, he was behind in the polls, then he pulled a couple of lies out of his ass and spent huge amounts of money spreading those lies. The timing was more or less perfect -- it turned the tide for him and he won.

From Wikipedia: He rebounded with ads that accused O'Brien of being a failed watchdog for state pension fund losses in the stock market and that associated her husband, a former lobbyist, with the Enron scandal During the election he contributed over $6 million – a state record at the time – to the nearly $10 million raised for his campaign overall. Romney was elected governor on November 5, 2002, with 50 percent of the vote to O'Brien's 45 percent.

Just saying, Rove is like a poisonous snake in the grass. You can't stop worrying about him or what dirty tricks his demented mind has come up with. A really good lie -- a stinking rotton smear brilliantly presented -- timed perfectly with a couple hundred million dollars to spread the manure around the country, that COULD shake things up.

But I've got faith in the Obama team. They know what they're up against. Here's hoping the worst possible Karl Rove inspired nightmare scenario does not come true.
