Skip to comments.Romney: GOP convention theme against Obama will be “nice guy, failed President”
Posted on 08/27/2012 8:00:50 AM PDT by Bigtigermike
Politico has an interesting and provocative interview with Mitt Romney this morning although perhaps not provocative enough for some of the passionate base. After dumping the nice guy but failed President argument in the overwhelming volume of nasty attacks from Barack Obama and his campaign, including insinuations of being a felon, a murderer, and a modern-day slaver, Romney tells Politico that the theme will return at the Republican National Convention this week in Tampa:
Mitt Romney conceded President Barack Obama has succeeded in making him a less likable person, but he offered a defiant retort to those hoping he will open up this week: I am who I am.
I know there are some people who do a very good job acting and pretend theyre something theyre not, Romney said. You get what you see. I am who I am.
To press the point, he said the GOP would even try to turn Obamas still-high personal favorability rankings back on him at its convention this week, by making the simple case to voters: nice guy, failed president.

This is exactly what they need to do, in order to pick up the remaining wishy-washy voters. I have no problem with it at all.
No passion there. No there there.
Of course it will be...heaven forbid Romney treats Obama like he treats conservatives.
Except for the 3/4 who just want to vote for a nice guy.
I agree. Let Obama continue the underhanded stuff, reply in kind on occasion, point out the lies. Obama is driving his own likability down.
These guys never get it. First off, O is not a nice guy, he is a African by way of far east thug. He would be happy being Papa Doc and once he gets rid of the constitution he will be.
He is not likeable either on a personal note...he is cold and calculating plus a marcisaciss.
Lastly, you don’t play nice guy with a party of thugs either. You hit them back harder....as Connery put it in the movie The Untouchables, they come with a knife, you use a gun, they put one of your guys in the hospital, you put one of theirs in the morgue: IT IS THE CHICAGO WAY.
Nice guy = big lie.
‘Failed president, A-hole’ has a much better ring.
It appears Romney learned nothing from the 1992 campaign of George H. W. Bush, the 1996 campaign of Bob Dole, the eight excruciating years when George W. Bush wouldn’t fight back against vicious lies, and the 2008 campaign of John McCain. Likely he will realize the same results.
A few observations:
1) Obama is not a nice guy. He is a creature of Alinsky and Chicago politics.
2) Romney is not a nice guy. He proved it in the primaries.
3) Romney may try to play being a nice guy but if he does the press and Obama will define him as an ogre.
4) If Romney really perceives himself as a nice guy, he should remember, “nice guys finish last.”
Looks like confirmation that the convention is going to be a RINO-fest snoozer. Good thing I have a little stockpile of dvd’s I’ve been needing to catch up on.
I’d love to go thermonuclear on the bum, but:
Its going to be a repeat of last week’s “bless his heart” soundbite. How do we think Obama is going to react to four days of well he seems nice but “bless his heart” he doesn’t know the first thing about being President or running an economy.
Barry is going to be fuming by Wednesday when Romney gets ready to slip the dagger in.
Exactly, if Obama is the nice guy according to Romney and Romney is the bad guy according to Obama, some voters would rather have the nice guy who has failed than a really bad guy who they don’t know if he will fail or succeed
In my opinion, Barry’s as nice as any dictator in history, e.g., Hitler, Mao, Mussolini, and he has the same goals.
It worked so well for McCain.
I like it!!
Obama is a crooked politician from Chicago.
Even Hitler could be nice. He was still a murdering, vicious, Jew hating dictator.
