Today is Obama Voter Freak-Out Day

David Weigel makes a point more liberals would have been advised to remember:
The Obama hyper-optimism never made sense to me. Mitt Romney's favorable ratings and issue ratings were cosmically low, because the Obama campaign's stated strategy -- for 13 months! -- was to make them low. The candidate was never going to show up to the debates as gaffe-prone and soul-less as he seems when media pick the gaffes out of 30-minute speeches and circulate the awkward moments on YouTube. The anger at Obama's debate sleepwalk makes sense. But why were liberals so confident that their pre-debate lead was set in adamantium?
