Thin Skin

    It finally hit me tonight why I think Mitt Romney would have a real problem in the general election.He is Barack Obama.No, not really. But yeah, there is something there. They are both robotically good on the campaign trail. But throw them off guard, get them off balance, and they turn a bit nasty.We are all intimately familiar with Barack Obama lashing out.

    Mitt Romney Bleeds. I Star in the Film

    Mitt Romney has a new web ad out about Rick Perry. I star in it.This is a necessary attack from Mitt Romney. Had he not pushed something out like this, the story would be that Mitt Romney got wounded last night. In several unscripted, unguarded moments he mentioned he failed to keep costs down in Massachusetts and was worried about illegals working for him because | Read More »

    Mitt Romney: enabling the PRC’s foreign adventurism?

    There’s a lot to talk about with regard to last night’s debate, but I want to drill down on this unforced error made by Team Romney. It’s… subtle, but it’s going to hurt Mitt in unexpected ways. Via the CNN debate transcript (via Ben Domenech’s Transom) comes this fascinating discussion of alternative methods of funding humanitarian aid: COOPER: Governor Romney, should foreign aid be eliminated? | Read More »

    Exacerbating Distrust

    Even Mitt Romney’s advisors will admit that they see what the rest of us see. In the Real Clear Politics polling average going back all the way to November of 2010, Mitt Romney has never gotten above 25.0% in the polling average. It is a real ceiling for him.The campaign had hoped that by encouraging states to escalate the time table and getting endorsements like | Read More »

    Perry loses cool in Vegas as Cain wins GOP debate 3400 to 999

    Cain wins Nevada GOP debate 3400 to 999, Perry loses cool Garden-gate attack on Mitt Romney and inappropriate  show of temper may make Rick  Perry wish his performance could have stayed in Vegas by the time the next polls are conducted. But Herman Cain heartened anti-Romney conservative hearts by offering a blockbuster alternative to RomneyCare and/or ObamaCare with a call for interstate competition in the health care industry. | Read More »

    Mitt Romney and The Advice of Evil Men

    Once upon a time, on a totally non-political day, during a non-political speech amidst his taxpayer-funded and non-political bus tour, Mein Obama offered us the following non-political discourse. “The Republican plan says that what’s been standing in the way between us and full employment are laws that keep companies from polluting as much as they want,” Obama said in a speech at the regional airport | Read More »

    My letter from Mitt

    I got my very own personal letter from Mitt Romney today. Its signed with an auto-pen and everything! I notice that the mailer was paid for by “Romney for President Inc.” I don’t recall incorporated status for other campaigns. The color picture of Mitt is odd in that he is looking off camera. Shouldn’t he be looking directly at the camera so as to make | Read More »
