YUVAL LEVIN:: The Hollow Republic – NRO

By Yuval Levin -- President Obama must surely wish he could undo the campaign speech he delivered in Roanoke, Va., on July 13.

CURL: The silly season — Obama’s winning?! – WashTimes

JONAH GOLDBERG:: Runaway Spending: Obama Is Bush on Steroids | RCP

By Jonah Goldberg -- This is shaping up to be the second election in a row that’s about someone who isn’t on the ballot: George W. Bush. In 2008, Barack Obama won in no small part by turning the election into a referendum on President Bush and by claiming that a John McCain presidency would amount to a third Bush term. Since then, Obama’s presidency has been ... Go To Article

ELECTION 2012: Numbers favor GOP in battle for control of Congress | WashEx

With Congress embarking this week on a monthlong recess despite its failure to act on several critical issues, Democrats unleashed a pre-election public relations assault, accusing Republicans of ignoring the middle class, abandoning bipartisanship and instead catering to the wealthy and the far-right Tea Party. The strategy looks tough on paper, and might resonate ... Go To Article

Conservatives are finding reasons to not just vote for Mr. Romney but to get excited about voting for him.
