Neither Romney nor Obama was able to get the swing advantage, as they could not put forth before the public any challenging issue for which they had the answer. The public as such had no option but to make a decision out of the elements of their indecision as they could find nothing in the campaign speeches of both the presidential candidates to lift their spirits, according to the author. Romney had another distinct disadvantage to his credit and that was the infighting spectacle of the Republicans in the primaries. The big show came down to a squabble between the two groups for the choice of the presidential candidate. The author also gives the account of the first debate of Obama with Romney in which the former was on the back foot. Though the author never loses an opportunity to present the events in his humorous style, the book describes the powers and faults of both the presidential candidates. Republicans are given extensive coverage in the book but in tandem with the technological advances and internet revolution, new techniques and technologies have been used from the side of Obama. Romney was over-confident, he relied on statistics and data and he took his victory for granted. He was enamored about his sterling performance in the first debate with Obama in Denver. .
