Posted on 07/05/2012 8:07:24 PM PDT by Bigtigermike
WOLFEBORO, N.H. Mitt Romney is planning to fortify his communications and messaging team by adding seasoned operatives, advisers close to the campaign said Thursday, after withering criticism from prominent conservative voices that his insular team has fumbled recent opportunities.
Romneys advisers insisted that he would keep his inner circle intact amid growing concerns about the Republican presidential candidate and his campaign. The tempest began with a weekend tweet from media tycoon Rupert Murdoch and burst Thursday onto the pages of his newspaper the Wall Street Journal, as its conservative editorial board opined that Romneys advisers were slowly squandering an historic opportunity to beat President Obama.
There are no plans, however, to alter Romneys core team of advisers, most of whom have worked for the former Massachusetts governor for years, and campaign officials said it was highly unlikely that Romney would demote or fire any of his senior staffers.
I dont sense any panic. I dont sense that any heads are going to roll, said Tom Rath, a longtime senior adviser to Romney. The idea that this guy at this point having gone through what hes gone through is going to somehow scramble the eggs on the team they dont know Mitt Romney.
The idea that somebody other than Beth Myers, Eric Fehrnstrom, Matt Rhoades, Stuart Stevens and Peter Flaherty are going to call the shots, its just plain wrong, Rath said, ticking through Romneys closest advisers, including Rhoades, the campaign manager, and Stevens, the chief strategist.

Who is the Democrat spokesperson Romney hired??
FDR was a lot more skilled with the smoke and mirrors than Obama is.
Darned if you do, darned if you dont. Was he lousy at this new post?
The spineless metrosexual actually quit as soon as the story came to light.
It’s as easy to say that given the potential scandal, he took one for the team. (Romney also handled it awkwardly.)
At some point the black vote morphed into 40% of the internal Democrat vote ~ and they began to control who became the Democrat nominee.
Obama got elected by winning 10 million more votes than McCain.
More importantly Obama got the nomination from the Democrats by beating the horrid Clinton woman into the political dirt, but it was "their turn" anyway. She didn't stand a chance.
Wendall Willkie is a close match to Mittons but so is Andrew Johnson.
Zer0 has proven adept only at growing the dependent class while shrinking the producer class.
Maybe so, but he didnt pay nearly as well. There was no such thing as welfare when I was a kid, there was commodity cheese and some basic staples, but most people would not touch them.
Guns and Butter Lyndon, now he really upped the pay, but it took Zero, to max out the payroll.
By the way, they did have "poor farms" where people could go and earn their keep, but it was a last resort, not first.
Conservs in the media and in politics have to keep pounding the Romney campaign NOT TO DIS any conserv help, voters or even platform agendas. It is the only way he has any chance to win regardless what so called moderate Pubs say. A united Indies, Libertarian,TEAS,Reagan Dems, and all wings of the GOP will win in Nov. and Mitt better be made clear upon that fact.
