Sell that (stale) narrative [off topic]

Tonight in the Washington Post I read, with a sense of relief:

But then I realized I’d been sold this focus story before:

  • April 4, 2012: “Mr. Romney looked beyond the Republican primary fight and focused his anger exclusively on Mr. Obama.” –New York Times
  • March 31, 2012: “Obama, Romney shift focus to general election” –Washington Post
  • Feb. 7, 2012: “Campaigning in Grand Junction, Colo., Romney kept his focus on Obama” –L.A. Times
  • January 3, 2012: “[Romney] has stayed focused primarily on Obama and the November general election.” –USA Today
  • August 18, 2011: “Romney keeps focus on Obama, not Perry” –International Herald Tribune
  • June 14, 2011: “Romney was able to keep his focus on Obama in large part because the others decided not to go after him.” –Washington Post
