Grass-roots support will beat the Obama machine!

The media and liberal pundits had many of us believing Mitt Romney was finished before last week’s debate. Now the polls show the race is tight, but guess what? They still want us to believe Mr. Romney can’t win.

Of course, he won’t be able to win alone. The liberals understand the value of a fired-up grass-roots movement. That’s how they won in 2008, and Mr. Romney can’t win without it. Give the media a couple of days, and they’ll use their phony narrative to try to derail and demotivate conservative grass roots again.

Conservatives, don’t let them. Activists and door-knockers — not candidates alone — win elections, and history shows we can win.

The folks who would like to stick a fork in Mr. Romney want us to forget election history in an attempt to deflect conservatives from turning out the vote. At this point in the general-election campaigns in 1980, 1988, 2000 and 2004, however, the Democratic candidate was winning — in some cases by a huge margin. Do I need to remind you how the Democratic candidates did in those years? We all know how those elections turned out.

Conservatives often rail against bias in the mainstream media, and for good reason. Still, if their candidate has a bad couple of weeks and the polls tighten or flip, they listen to the ludicrous barrage of negative news about their man on the stump.

Folks, that barrage is coming, but conservatives must keep up their confidence level and ramp up their efforts. The Obama machine is beatable, and the Chicago messiah is vulnerable. David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett should be scared.
