Well played

A line from Obama’s economic speech on Thursday is giving Republicans more material to continue slamming their opponents as Obama surrogates. That tactic has been key to Republicans’ midterm strategy this cycle, at a time when a majority of Americans — 52% according to the latest CNN/ORC poll — disapprove of the President’s job.

“I am not on the ballot this fall,” Obama said at Northwestern University on Thursday. “But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.”

Rep. Cory Gardner, the Republican nominee for Senate in Colorado, already played up the line during an interview Friday.

    I see the slow-pitch softball arcing right down the middle of the plate and so want to swing at it.

    I need to hold myself steady and wait until it is over the plate to blast it into center field rather than swing early and dibble it to 3rd base.

    Even better, I would wait even longer and drive it into right field, where no one expects a slow-pitch softball to be hit (by a righty).
