Obama acts as though we no longer have a Constitution

After a few whirlwind days that saw him collect the Republican presidential nomination and make a commander-in-chief-like trip to Louisiana to inspect storm damage, Mitt Romney stepped off the campaign trail Sunday to prepare for the upcoming presidential debates with Barack Obama.
Fresh off accepting the GOP presidential nod, Mitt Romney took on more of a presidential posture Friday, reworking his schedule so he could fly to Louisiana to survey the damage from Isaac — beating President Obama to the punch.
Stuart Stevens, Mr. Romney's chief strategist, said the momentum comes from Mr. Romney's performance in last week's debate as well as the "natural rhythm of the campaign."
"We have always believed that voters would turn to Mitt Romney in this campaign," Mr. Stevens said. "I don't think of it as a second look. For many voters, it is a first serious look at both candidates. It's that old Christmas shopping reality. Just a certain percentage of the voters will only tune in when they tune in."
