Skip to comments.Is Romney bullet proof? (Vanity)

It is beginning to occur to me, that at some point, it seems that no matter what the Dems throw at Romney it does not sink him. He bounces back. Rasmussen has him up and new polls shows him pulling away in NC and taking the lead in NH.
Could the narrative soon become that because of the dismal economy and seething dissatisfaction with the direction of the country that Romney has "rope a doped" Obama and nothing he throws at him will knock him out?
Well part of it is, pretty much everybody has decided whom to vote fir already I think. Plus, his supposed gaffes are what we all think anyway.
I’m thinking it has more to do with the alternative than Romney himself........
Your title asks if Romney (a presidential candidate with secret service protection) is bullet proof? You ain’t too bright, are ya?
Where did you see the NH number?! That would be huge!
obama cannot win without NH! (in my opinion...)
It’s not sinking him because the country is evenly divided. There is no way 50% of the country is going to vote for obama no matter what sleazy tricks the media employs.
Yeah, should have put that part in quotes but stick it where the sun don’t shine anyway Browneye
Never mind...it’s Rasmussen and he shows Romney up three (!) in New Hampshire!
With what’s been thrown at him so far, I think it’s more a case of the democrats shooting blanks than it is of Romney being bulletproof.
No, there just might be a slim majority thatagrees with him. But America is on a steady slope to socialism and it can’t be stopped. The rate of change of the slope can be altered but the direction is fixed. Hopefully Romney can slow it down.
Top story ‘Breaking News’
No, I think it’s more of a case of Obama’s idiocy canceling out MSM spin of Romney.
As I said in another thread, it’s Obama vs. a pile of poo. If it were really Obama vs. Romney, Romney would be way up, IMO.
Start the narrative and I'll support it. Whatever it takes to get the communist out of office.
Obama’s attacks are getting less purchase because, with Obama’s economy in the toilet, Obama realized long ago that his ONLY chance was to trash his opponent.
Long ago. So long ago that he’s been running mostly-negative ads for a lot LONGER than in a typical campaign. As a result, people are starting to be less influenced by the negativity.
Obama can still win, of course. It sickens me that this is even close — and part of the reason why is that we nominated the individual mandate’s baby daddy.
“Teflon” might be a better description than bullet proof.
I think Romney is surviving more than the MSM expects because they don’t realize that: 1) Their audience is much smaller than it used to be and has alternative input. 2) Except for the cocooned liberals, everyone knows the MSM is in the tank. Not to mention they’ve become more and more shrill, exposing their bias all the greater. 3) Events, dear boy, events. You can fudge unemployment stats, you can ignore gas prices, and all the rest, but the people *living* out there in the real world know what they’re experiencing. The weather man can tell you it’s 95 degrees, but if you spend any time outside, you know it’s 45. Are you going to believe and vote based on what they tell you, or on your own lying eyes?
Let’s not count our chickens before they’re hatched. Let’s get him elected first, and then we can test your theory. I don’t think Romney will have the charisma that Reagan had, but hopefully he will be business-like and competent on the economy and foreign policy.
Yes. Romney is no Reagan, but he’s a success story who I honestly believe will roll back spending, maybe not because of burning ideological disagreement with things like Planned Parenthood and the GSA, but because he knows we can’t afford it. Nobody could be worse on foreign policy than Obama, who is actively aiding our enemies.
More like slime proof.
