From the New York Times comes an analogy by President Obama that sports fans can appreciate.
According to an aide, Obama described the difference between his campaign and Mitt Romney’s this way:
No matter what moves Mr. Romney made, the president said, he and his team were going to cut him off and block him at every turn. “We’re the Miami Heat, and he’s Jeremy Lin,” Mr. Obama said, according to the aide.
For a possible explanation for what President Obama may have meant, The Big Lead points out that Lin shot a dismal 1-11 and had eight turnovers his first time out against the Heat in February. And that was after lighting up the Lakers and Mavericks days before.
