dems can talk confidently all they want

It is a very bad sign for the dems that the sitting president is sitting in a very close race with a candidate coming off what all agree was a bruising primary process. If you look historically, most incumbents are in much better shape at this point.
And while many are hoping for a strong economic rebound, as I have been saying for a while, outside of a blind hope that somehow we are just cycling out of the problems there is nothing specific we can point to as a reason to have such hopes.
Romney is in much better shape at this point than history would tell us he should expect. Long way to go, but this is not where team Obama thought they would be.
