Obama's former personal physician said much the same thing "in over his head", etc. Obama supporters would do better by him by admitting it is ok that he does walk on water, and is a work in progress. Instead, they go ape, trying to defend him. Obama is not comfortable in his own skin, thus his almost academic detachment from the real politiics that Clinton understands. After all, Clinton did all sorts of dirty, but he was able to shuck it off and triangulate the politics.
The current 50/43 split in favor of Romeny will only get worse, if the Obama supporters keep doing things like bringing up Romneys high school days. Even worse, if they keep going after his religion.

"if the Obama supporters keep doing things like bringing up Romneys high school days."
I see, it is okay to bash Obama about being a neighborhood organizer(which is not a criminal offence), for example, but unfair to bring up Romney's activities when he was in prep school (which sound criminal to me) ???
And it was okayto go after Obama's religion in 2008, but wrong to question Romney's religion now??
Seems to me I smell more of the typical republican hypocrisy at work here
And if you are going to select a single and talk about present as the last word, then I say Obama is leading ROmney 50/42

First, think about Spring flowers. The drifting scents, so pleasing to the palate. It is, after all, Spring. Clinton gets this. Obama does not. Clinton was accused of rape, and he was impeached for perjury, yet he was comfortable enough to triangulate, which was best for the country. Clinton was/is a good old southern country boy, who gets it. Obama was raised in waters that he did not understand, and he shows it.
50/43 is the most current poll, and Rasmussen has credibility. It will only get worse, for Obama, if his supporters go after things like Romney's high school pranks...even the Washington Post is now backing off the story.
Smell the roses! Try to relax...let Obama relax. He needs to spend some time with Bill Clinton, get drunk, and try to absorb what Slick can teach him. Maybe even a young woman or two. He needs to be comfortable with being a sinner. Americans don't like severe messianic leaders (like Wilson).
Rasmussen is Fox's pollster; they are historically out of the mainstream until a couple weeks before an election when they slide in line, so they don't look so bad compared to everyone else and the actual results. They had McCain winning in Sept 2008.
And your false, Sharon-like claim: "even the Washington Post is now backing off the story" Is flat out WRONG, from WaPo:

Mitt Romney bullying story holds up to scrutiny
By Patrick B. Pexton
The ombudsman is being bombarded by input from readers, via e-mail and phone calls, about the story that Post reporter Jason Horowitz wrote on Mitt Romney’s teenage years at the prestigious Cranbrook School in Michigan.
The story leads with an anecdote about Romney and some of his friends in his dormitory tackling and pinning to the ground an unpopular classmate and forcibly cutting off his bleached-blond, longish hair. The boy, John Lauber, was frightened and in tears, Horowitz explained, and the boy turned out to be gay.
The rest of the deeply reported story provides extensive context to Romney’s years there, what the school was like, where Romney fit in the boys’ hierarchy, and the fact that a lot of people liked the son of Michigan’s then-governor, George Romney."
