Mike Haridopolos’ campaign strategy has been looking more and more like it’s being run by the Titanic’s navigation team. After what happened yesterday, it’s getting closer to the Hindenburg-crashing-into-Titanic level of disaster.
Haridopolos made an appearance on conservative talk radio host Ray Junior’s program, and ran into a pile of trouble when he was asked about Paul Ryan’s budget plan. Haridopolos repeatedly refused to answer the question, over and over, making Junior extremely frustrated, to the point where he kicked Haridopolos off the show.
Here’s the video of how it all went down:
After repeated efforts to get a straight answer out of Haridopolos, the exasperated host finally said “get rid of him.” Will voters do the same if Haridopolos keeps it up?

UPDATE #2: The damage control efforts have begun. Good luck with that. Note that even in the text of a press release that was presumably written and vetted by his communications staff, he still isn’t giving a direct answer.
