Overview

The Inside Story of the 2012 Presidential Campaign

The presidential campaign of 2012 was one of the closest and most fierce, expensive, and unpredictable in our history, and Washington Post senior political correspondent Dan Balz chronicled every twist.

Obama vs. Romney is a collection of 50 dispatches from the campaign trail, by one the preeminent political journalists of our times. Balz recounts the back-and-forth slugfest of 2012 in a single seamless narrative, including his hundreds of interviews with behind-the-scenes players who crafted both Obama’s scorched-earth re-election game plan and Romney’s audacious strategy for unseating a president. The result is a complete inside story of the campaign from the early days in both parties, through the dramatic ending that wasn’t written until the very last hours of the election.

    This book isn't what I thought it would be. I thought it would be the behind the scenes on the campaign trail. Instead it had too much political data and numbers and did revert back to the 2008 election on too many occasions. It wasn't too specific on the candidates and their trips crisscrossing across the country and what their lives were like.

    The election wasn't close, the most consistent polls had the president leading from start to finish and he won by 5 points. Every reporter like Balz tried to turn it into a horse race. Bottom line...GOP had the worst possible candidate @ the worst possible time with the exception of the 2008 GOP VP candidate.
