Skip to comments.Romney: A Mistake for McCain
Posted on 07/23/2008 5:33:00 PM PDT by JRochelle
You've probably heard the story about the tycoon who wanted to bring out a new kind of dog food.
He spent lavishly. He hired the best marketing person, the top PR firm, the best ad agency, the No. 1 packaging expert, the most powerful distributor -- but the sales were flat after six months.
He summoned his consultants to a meeting and asked why the food wasn't selling. "The dogs won't eat it," was the answer that came back.
And so it is with Mitt Romney. Despite outspending his rivals by huge margins throughout the primaries, the dogs won't eat it. He lost Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida and California. The only primaries he won were in Michigan, where Dad was governor; LDS states; and a few states on Super Tuesday in which his California-obsessed rivals couldn't spare the cash to advertise. Only John Connolly in 1968 had a worse cash-to-delegates ratio.
And John McCain rightly did not like Romney's tactics during the primaries. Using his gigantic money advantage to dominate television, he seized early leads in virtually all of the primary states, only to lose them later on. And, when they started slipping away, he resorted to unfair, distorted, scorched-earth negative ads, betting that his opponents couldn't afford to spend enough for the truth to catch up to his charges.

Powell, Rice, Lieberman and Huckabee are also unacceptable.
Forget the Morman and the Arkansasn
Add Crist, Ridge, and Lindsey Graham to the list.
Calling all Romney bashers...
McCain is a mistake all by himself.
Morris is so full of it...remember who he worked for.
Dick Morris gets it right for a change about Slick Willard, but gets it wrong for the other RINO (or rodent) choices for VP.
who pray tell oh genius do you suggest
Carly Fiorina (a maybe)
Mike Pence, James Inhofe.
What about Duncan Hunter?
Dick Morris has officially lost his mind. Badness of his advice can only mean one thing: He is for Obama.
Condi = Bush = 80% disapproval rating
Powel = Will Endorse Obama anytime now
Leiberman = Unless McCain wants to win the Presidency of some BINGO club, putting equally dull and old looking dude on the ticket wouldn’t make much sense.
Romney can raise upto 50 million dollars. He can’t out-raise Obama, but he doesn’t have to. Hillary couldn’t either, but she almost managed to pull it off. Obama can’t buy his way to WH. All McCain has to do in terms of money is remain within striking distance and he is doing a reasonable job of that.
Michigan is only polling couple of points higher for Obama and there are 3 and half months to go.
Romney can tip the scale in McCain’s favor.
Remember Obama went into Texas couple of points ahead....
Romney has some pull in Nevada and Colorado. He can bring those to the McCain’s column as well.
More importantly he looks like he is alive.
McCain needs to give Huck or some OTHER Southerner a prominent role in the campaign to HOLD Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia.
If not McCain then I-Carly!
Yeah she is filthy rich, so is Romney.
However, she is a hot Woof, and Hildabeast lovers may just not be able to resist her.
the blonde who worked for Nixon and Colmes’ sister in law said tonight if mccain didn’t pick Mitt she was gonna run in the streets in sixth avenue,
Mitt is her “sexy pic”...lolol and I AGREE!
I guess Dick agrees with you.
Every single one of those names are boring. I do not see McCain having success with his own base if he does not choose a candidate that can draw votes from the middle.
Pawlenty? He just doesn’t do it for me. He seems squishy and a mini rino.
It would take a lot more than that in the South with Romney on the ticket.
