October Surprise?

I hate engaging in conspiracy theories or being too optimistic. After all, Obama is leading comfortably, and it’s his race to lose. Nonetheless, something seems bizarre with the campaign. It almost seems too quiet and subdued, like a calm before the storm. I was talking about this to a good friend of mine who is an obama supporter, and he felt the same way. He’s convinced that there will be an october surprise that will hurt obama. It could be a foreign policy development or shocking ads that damage obama’s campaign. I really don’t know. And of course, this is purely speculative, but my guts are telling me the sh*t is going to hit the fan in about a week or two.
