“The Obama organization did the single best job of destroying a candidate I have ever seen in my career, from May to September. But that all went out the window when Romney showed people that the caricature of him as a clown was false. … Now he’s got to make the case for himself. If he was ahead now, my guess is he wouldn’t have taken the chance of putting all of this out there.”
