The Florida aftermath: Mitt Romney needs to go after Obama

We learned a couple of things in Florida:

1) Politics is, and has always been, hardball; and
2) Romney is playing to win.

I am not suggesting that Gingrich, or Santorum, should drop out.  They should stay as long as their supporters stick with them or their money keeps coming in.  We remind you that Huckabee stuck around until McCain officially clinched in Texas four years ago.

At the same time, Romney does look like the nominee.  I hope that he starts acting like the nominee too.

Stop attacks ads against  Gingrich and go 100% against Obama. 

We we reminded today of how weak and vulnerable Obama really is.  Gallup has just released "state by state" polls and Obama (we repeat) is in serious trouble:

"Gallup released their annual state-by-state presidential approval numbers yesterday, and the results should have 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue very worried.

If President Obama carries only those states where he had a net positive approval rating in 2011 (e.g. Michigan where he is up 48 percent to 44 percent), Obama would lose the 2012 election to the Republican nominee 323 electoral votes to 215."

That's not pretty.

We remind you that this is a projection and that things change and they probably will.  However, this poll tells me two things:

1) Obama is running out time quickly; and
2) Voters are slowly concluding that Obama does not deserve a second term.

So let me say it again:  Our guys need to hit Obama hard and harder. 

This is specially true of Romney who is the likely nominee.
