Did Obama Throw the Game?

THE NEW YORK TIMES OP-ED WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2012

MAUREEN DOWD:  Barry Trails Off…

…”So Obama knows that he alone is responsible for his unfathomable retreat into his own head while nearly 70 million people watched.  He hadn’t been nailing it in debate prep either, taking a break to visit the Hoover Dam, and worried aides knew his head wasn’t in it.  When the president realized what a dud he was, he apologized to flummoxed and irritated advisors.

Once during the 2008 campaign, reading about all the cataclysms jolting the economy and the world, Obama joked to an adviser:  ‘Maybe I should throw the game.’  This time, he actually threw the game.  And shaved points right off his poll ratings…”

End game, throw the game, ground game:  These are a few of the metaphors being used to describe this election.
