Ok, not a fan of Romney but all this hysteria about his Death Star breaking down or whatever is just silly. First off, Romney never really fired up the Death Star unless he was losing. By all credible polls he is not losing. As a matter of fact, it is the ONE who is in a place that NO incombent wants to find himself in. Secondly, Romney never ever did his own dirty work during the primaries. Instead, it was his surrogates or Super PAC’s that did the hitting. Slowly but surely, we are seeing those surrogates start to kick it into gear and the squealing from the MSM and the Obama campaign in the face of those limited attacks is astounding.
I want a “pound Obama as a dope smoking, lying, failure of an American Hating commie” campaign as much as the next guy. But why throw punches too early when this guy is tiring himself out.
Agree. Reagan won in 1980 with 50.7%. According to Rasmussen, an incumbent's share of the vote on election day is roughly the same as his approval. Zero's approval is currently 46%. 100 minus 46 = 54%.
54% would, by recent standards, amount to a Republican landslide. Even if Gary Johnson and others siphon off a couple of percent, that's still a lot.
I'm just a little concerned that Romney doesn't seem to be spending a lot of the cash he's raised and neither do the Republican super pacs. The Demonrats seem to be firing at will. Granted, they don't seem to be hitting much at this distance.
I hope (and pray) that the Republicans know what they're doing.
Exactly! Obama is desperate to get the conversation off the economy. If Romney takes the bait and allows himself to get off message, Obama wins. But right now, as Obama and his team try to pound Romney on Bain, outsourcing, "the rich" etc., Americans will notice for a moment, then get right back searching the HELP WANTED ads.
Our Dear Leader will throw everything against the wall, hoping something will stick. Stay focused my FRiends. Now is not the time to go weak-in-the-knees. Stay on message.
