Just when you think the Romney campaign might be getting its act together, Romney goes overseas.
Romney stepped in it by criticizing London’s preparations for the Olympic games. Granted Romney is one of the few people in the world who has actually run the Olympic games, but the point is not whether the games are being run well. The point is can Romney avoid gaffes?
Romney does not understand the basics. He has an adversarial media. It is not simply adversarial. NBC, which featured an interview with Brian Williams, is effectively the media arm for the Obama reelection campaign.
Perhaps the next time Romney wants to give an interview to NBC, he should cut his pain by just giving an interview to Obama for America.
Unfortunately Romney’s performance on his World Mitt Tour should scare the hell out of all of the Republicans.
Romney is so undisciplined; he might actually manage to blow this election.
Newt Gingrich was accused, probably accurately, of being undisciplined in his campaigning. He may have been, but he had a brilliance and a media savvy that would let him recover quickly and often turn a gaffe into an offensive moment. Romney lacks this.
Romney’s strategy to win is to simply outspend any opponent. That worked for him in the primaries. If his fundraising continues, he might be able to do this in the general. On the other hand, no one should underestimate the ability of the Party of Treason to raise money so they can stay in power.
Romney may be as bad as Obama when it comes to going off script. Without his Teleprompters, Obama is lost. When Romney goes off script, he too is lost.
Romney needs to learn a few things. He is not going to get a fair shake from the media. The media loved Romney in the primaries when he was bashing real conservatives. But he has just learned the John McCain lesson. Now that the primaries are over, the drive-by media is going back to its 2008 role of being the media arm for Barack Obama.
While the media built up the perception of Barack Obama as a rock star during his 2008 Europe trip, the narrative that is coming out of Romney’s trip is that he is incapable of anything but mistakes and errors.
While Romney will get some help from the new conservative media, the drive-by media will do what it does every election. It will be in the tank for the Democrat.
Unless something unprecedented happens in the next month, Romney will be nominated. At that point, unless Romney can significantly outspend Obama this fall, we may see four more years of Obama.
Maybe Romney should be calling Newt Gingrich for some fast lessons on how to handle the media. His current strategy isn’t working.
Maybe your the Enemy William!
If anybody has ANY doubts about what obama has up his slimy sleeve for his second term; go get and read this:
"FOOL ME TWICE", by Aaron Klein and Brenda Elliott!
Extrapolation on an old Chinese proverb:
If 1,000 wise men say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing. If 1,000 fools say a wise thing, it is still a wise thing.
Truth is Truth no matter who says it.
The English are hard core far left socialists. They're really really screwed up over there. They wouldn't like Romney even if it turned out that he was Jesus.
Who was it that said "better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt" Mitt does have a habit of saying the wrong thing to the press.
Judson, I appreciate that you are disappointed in the GOP candidate. I am appalled to be represented by a "moderate" yet again. I live in AZ and couldn't be more ashamed of my Senators McCain and Kyl. We've been thrown in the ditch time and again for the benefit of our politicians' careers.
But, unless you know something I don't (like the electors in unison regaining sanity at the 11th hour and throwing their weight behind Newt) Romney will be our Prez for the next four. Remember 2 people were shot dead to keep the electors' change-up from happening in 2008. That's why Hillary acted so strangely on the floor just as TX was to give their support. She had planned for a coup to take place and gave up with the deaths.
What do you suppose O's people would do to keep anyone else from grabbing this election from their greedy, power mongering grasp? Spend billions? Outsource ballot counting to Spain? Set up the ballot machines to always register in favor of O and leave no trace of being fixed? Bring up divisive issues in order to keep the masses off guard and racially charged/economically charged/religiously charged/hetero-homo charged/educationless charged???????
Guess what? It's already in place and I believe the election is a done deal. Bought and paid for. Politically sabotaged in favor of liberals.
I SEE YOUR DISCOURSE LIKE THE LITTLE DOG WITH A GRUDGE BUT NO TEETH YIPPING AT THE FEET OF THE OWNER OF THE PIT BULL.
God Bless America and Patriotic Americans.
Elaine, you win the gold medal for the most depressing comment ever posted on this site!
Yes, but it is very likely that she is right. It is good to have hope, but you must also be prepared for the worse.
Nevadastu: I'm just calling it like I see it.
I've written letters, posted blogs, called my Senators (lol) McCain and Kyl, done massive amounts of research through various resources including the Koran, my high school history book, called every Sec State that has a law suit v. O, regularly send all my info to my circle and expanded it to include an insider from Hollywood and an Am. Native in Texas, read all the pertinent blogs, read everything I can get my hands on including the Exec. Orders from the .gov site, Vattel's Natural Law, McCullough bios of John Adams and 1776, Griffin's "The Creature from Jekyll Island" re the FED, and I know my Bible inside out and backwards. (This is not a complete list of my library, just a start)
The end result is a very black, bleak ending of this weak, dull-witted country that used to be great. We've been out spent, out educated, out foxed by the wielders of the World powers: NWO, Islam, Communism. And we've been sleeping for30 or so years and now it's all gone.
If you can tell me one good reason to try something else, I would love to. My family is in financial ruin; my husband and I are in very poor health and we're old. Obamacare will put us down without dignity. My children do not believe in God and my grandchildren are lost to me - noone can afford to travel to visit us.
AND, WHEN I TRY TO PASS ON INFORMATION ON THIS SITE, I SEEM TO BE TALKING TO AN AUDIENCE THAT WOULD RATHER FIGHT ABOUT THE FABRIC IN THE FLAG AND IGNORE THE FACT IT'S ON FIRE. Am I alone here, or is it just me.
Very well stated, and I know where you're coming from. Only God can turn this ship
around, and I'm not real sure that He wants to go to the trouble. But, we can hope ___
DMF: I really need to hear your response. Thank you for being here at just this moment in time. Your testimony is taken as a blessing on me.
God Bless you and yours and
God Bless America
(If I had been in the military, I'm sure I would've made a good stab at trying to be a Marine! I'm pretty tough, but these times are unlilke anything I've ever prepared for.)
The Progressives/Liberals/Socialists/Democrats have done a masterful job of using our school system to indoctrinate our children in the wonders of the American/Dependency ethic.
Lyndon Johnson was the key leader who turned our country inside out, with:
1. The War on Poverty.
2. The Vietnam War, which was a totally useless exercise, not needed to fight Communism.
3. The Unified Budget, which set up the tools by which Congress could steal FICA money from Social Security, and spend it just as though it was in the budget.
It was JFK that alowed the Union's into the Public sector. It was his bribe for votes just like Obama is bribing the Latino's by alowing the Illegal's to stay in country and go to school at our expense.
