Getting tough on the sissified manchild is “rasis”. Barry’s state run “media” would beat Mitt to a pulp if he tries it.

When he first ran against Fatso Kennedy in '96 Romney held on to his strategist Charlie "Milquetoast" Manning while Kennedy's guys took him apart over his record at Bain.

If he's not willing to make some serious changes history will repeat

Presently Romney’s campaign is faring pretty even with McCain’s. So yeah, he’d better start running NOW.

Rush is correct, there is NO OTHER WAY other than to get tough. It is not racist, the old race card has lost its value a long, long time ago.

Rush warned us back in December.

Rush Goes On the Record with Fox News Channel's Greta Van Susteren

VAN SUSTEREN: Why has Governor Mitt Romney not had a so-called "surge"? We hear "surge" used with basically every Republican nominee, but you don't see that "surge" with Governor Romney.

RUSH: Well, every poll I've seen of Republican primary voters, he can't crack 30 percent. It has been curious. And you look at it from the reverse, 70 percent of Republican voters want somebody else. This is why we have the phenomenon of the "Not-Romney." Bachmann was the "Not-Romney" for a while. Herman Cain was the "Not-Romney." Now Newt is the "Not-Romney." I think it boils down to something that's not complicated at all. Republican primary voters are conservative. They don't believe that Romney is. They believe that he will stick a finger in the air and moisten it and see which way the winds are blowing and try to get in that direction. They remember that Romney said he believes in global warming and he believes that man is causing it. Well, conservatives don't believe that. They believe it's a hoax. Conservatives know that the whole story of man-made global warming is a hoax. And they're not going to get excited by a candidate who is trying to gain favor with non-Republican primary voters by articulating that stuff.

Here's the big problem, Greta, for the Republicans. And I am a lone wolf on this. The rule of thumb in elections, both parties, 40 percent are going to vote Democrat automatically, whatever you do, 40 percent are going to vote Republican, automatic, no matter what you do. And in the middle, who do we have? The precious, God love them, independents and the moderates. And they are the targets. They are the focus of every election. And our brilliant campaign consultants tell our candidates they are the ones that know how to go get a majority of those independents. And we have, as Republicans, put ourselves in prison to this whole silly notion that you only win elections by moving to the center and getting great independents. Fine and dandy, but if you squander your base in the process, you haven't a prayer.


Much more at the link.

Not gonna happen. He’ll pick some other no balls GOPer for VP.

The fire some claim he has in his belly is nothing more than a bit of undigested brussel sprout.

Flyer hit the reason which Rush seemed to avoid - the MSM won’t tell the true facts, or selectively choose facts to support their political prejudices, but most of all it is the ‘race’ issue.

Personally, I suspect using the race card is having less and less an impact. Why? Because it has been overused, especially in instances when race wasn’t the issue.

Democrats have no intention of improving the economy, by the measure of their own economist. It’s just a slower decline.

The Macroeconomic Effects of Tax Changes
By Christina D. Romer and David H. Romer

“tax increase of 1% of GDP lowers real GDP by almost 3%”

Time for the Romney promoters to understand. It is not the Economy Stupid! Jobs, Jobs, Jobs! Will not sway a single Obama voter, because they aren’t working, and they don’t want to work, because they don’t have to.

Well, Mittens didn't have any problems bashing Santorum, Newt, or other Republicans.

PS. I bet Sarah Palin could ream Obama a new one, maybe two new ones!

Does Sarah have bigger balls than the Romney Campaign?

Rush lays out the thesis that employment and the economy doesn’t matter in the 2012 campaign. But he doesn’t tell us what WILL decide the election. Like so many other Rush monologues, I wait breathlessly for Rush to lead the way, only to be left at the altar. We all have a list of things that our candidate should do, but Rush is not laying them out.

Even Rush is not above Concern Trolling. In fact, it’s becoming a Monday staple...

Rush has some valid points. Romney should be characterizing Obama as a serial liar (use old clips to prove it, juxtaposed with the unemployment numbers, etc) and ask voters if they really believe that Obamacare won't 'add a penny to their taxes' while the IRS hires tens of thousands of new agents. Obama has to be portrayed as what he is: a lying phony who says one thing and does another and so, cannot be trusted. Romney also needs to get his own economic plan out there, pronto. Being vague won't cut it. Picking a conservative VP would be helpful because if Romney chooses a pantywaist VP it will definitely hurt him. He doesn't need a fire-breather, just someone who isn't 'moderate' - and bland ( e.g. Pawlenty).

It’s great to get “tough”, but when few are paying close attention, what is the point?

You blow millions of dollars to generate some talk radio and internet buzz only to have people forget about it by Aug.

Obama already tried buzz-building gimmicks only to see no real benefits weeks out.

When the likely voter is tuning in, then you go ape on him.

The odd thing is, the low point in the economy was 1933, just as FDR was sworn in. This time, the low was in 2009, just (shortly after) Obama was sworn in. It is eery.

I listened to all of Rush and the beginning of Hannity today and they both seem to be in CYA mode. It seems they see the Romney campaign as likely to lose and they are setting up to be able to say, “See I told you so...”. MAkes you wonder what they know that we don’t.

First he needs to get tough on the media. Mock them and force them to cover this election fairly.
Gingrich was great at that. Reagan was the master at playing the media like a fine tuned bango.

Romney needs to daily mock Obama,too.
Make fun of him and then when the media tries to turn it around on Romney...SLAM THEM WITH THE JOBS NUMBERS and THE ECONOMY.
Make jokes about him playing golf during the worst economic down turn since the GD.
Point out how he is campaigning on the tax payer’s dollar!

From Rush in the above articel:

unemployment....my instincts have been telling me that nobody cares, because it's not resulting in that much pain, not nearly as much as it used to.

And it used to be a matter of personal pride, and that has been redefined. They are "victims" of __________ (fill in the blank.)

Rush Limbaugh is right on the money here, and he's also right about Romney's rope-a-dope strategy... only the Good Lord knows why Romney isn't attacking Obama the way he did Gingrich, Santorum, and Perry, but he isn't.

He was on vacation over the 4th, but he's vacationed on Arizona and ObamaCare and Jobs numbers and absolutely unheard from on foreign policy.

He is doing a perfect imitation of McCain/Dole.

Hey, Mr. RomneyCARE deserves some defense.

After all, he is busy making $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

And, after all, he is busy HIDING (protected
by his wife who speaks for him after interrupting him).

Mr. RomneyCARE, the CHOSEN LOSER, was carefully
selected by Soros and the DNC because he cannot win,
and by the GOPe because THEY support TARP, TAXES,
Sharia, ObamaCARE/RomneyCARE, Death Panels, STATISM,
and are willing to lie about it for POWER.
