Why exactly has President Barack Obama moved out to a lead against GOP challenger Mitt Romney?
The economy's not looking any better. Obama's social policies haven't made any sudden strides. And abroad, the U.S. is doing what it always does and responding how it always responds to international incidents.
So Obama's small but definite lead in the polls can only be explained by the campaigns themselves. And on that front, Obama's taking Romney to task. Mitt's campaign has been worse than bad; the convention hurt him in the polls and he's made blunder after blunder.
