Obama Campaign looking forward to facing Romney

Mark Halperin: “Even as Mitt Romney has effectively locked up the Republican presidential nomination with primary wins in Wisconsin, Maryland and Washington, D.C., President Obama’s advisers are more confident than ever that they will beat the former Massachusetts governor in the general election… Giving Obama’s team a buoyant feeling: Romney’s unending string of gaffes that reinforce his image as someone who is hopelessly out of touch with the real lives of real people.”

“Romney’s prospects rely on two tracks: abandoning the effort to be likable and settling instead for awkwardly endearing (though his public image is a long way off from that) and using a series of upcoming framing speeches to condemn the Obama economic record.”
