Polls change. The same Rasmussen polls that now show Romney edging up with a lead had him down 4 points earlier using the same polling methodology. We need to stop blaming the messenger and stop sleepwalking along with our candidate to defeat in November. Losing by even 1-point is still a loss. Romney unlike Ryan appears cautious and is using the same vacuous campaign strategy he did to win the primary. This won’t work here.
He needs to present a bold Reaganesque like plan that will sway the 5%-6% independents. All sides agree that this will be a close election. What were formerly solid red states have become “swing” states like FL and VA. Romney needs to win them both and OH. A OH loss and its all over. Bush II narrowly won OH over Kerry. Had OH gone to Kerry we would possibly have had 8 years of Kerry. We don’t do our side any favors by shooting the messenger. There are none so blind than those who refuse to see. As Laura Ingraham said, if Romney loses this, we may as well shut down the Republican party. With this dismal Obama record, as Krauthammer has written, Romney should be 15-points ahead of Obama.
We must all begin to shout and scream and light a fire under the Romney camp.
I asked a simple question, Do you think Dems will outpoll the GOP by 10 percentage points? Yes or No.
