"I swear to God, everything we have been saying for months, and I know a lot of the audience doesn't want to hear this, this is the worst campaign in my lifetime," Democratic pollster Pat Caddell said on the Monday edition of FOX News' "Campaign Insiders" web show. "A challenging campaign, with a chance to win. They have set themselves on a course that says, 'We don't have to do anything, we're going to win because they don't like the other guy.'"
"That 50% approval rating -- if the president is at 50% approval, it is hundreds of millions of dollars raised and spent by Republican and conservative consultants and organizations have failed. They have failed because they have no real credibility as a message. If he's at 50%, somebody needs to sit down and rethink," Caddell said.
"Republicans have no response mechanism. Hundreds of millions of dollars, they're still not on the air explaining to people that with the labor participation rate, if it was the same as he came into office the unemployment would be 11.2%. There is a missing case and I watched Romeney yesterday, I watched Romney yesterday, I swear to God, there is no urgency to this man. He is running, as I said this morning, bored," Caddell observed.

He’s been handed the election on a plate with today’s events in Egypt and Libya. But he needs to attack Obama now, and not wait until October.
What campaign? Who’s Romney?
Romney needs to lose the yes men and listen to the conservatives who don’t like him.
We won’t tell him what he wants to hear but we will tell him the truth.
He would become a better candidate.
romney is losing this skillet shot.
Romney just released a statement about the events that happened today, it will probably be posted on this site very soon..he finally rips into Obama
He did just come out with a statement of disgust over Obama’s apology letter. This would be good in an ad highlighting Obama’s taxpayer funded aid to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Two words: Drop out. We need a Conservative nominee, not a lying Socialist fraud.
Caddell...we have nominated a pussy surrounded by pussies
Sickening at this juncture
Such ads need to be out there, yesterday.
I am sick and tired of the pant-wetters who are ABR and now trying to give him advice.
The GOP isn’t called The Stupid Party for no reason.
I would go as far to say that foreign policy should be the centerpiece of this campaign. This is where Obama is most vulnerable, and Romney has barely touched on it so far. Hopefully, that is about to change.
I think a large part of his problem is the staff that he has. They seem to be a group of nobodies and mushmouths. I do remember when Reagan ran in 1980; he had a major staff and strategy shakeup at the beginning of the campaign. If Romney does not do this, I can’t see him winning on anything other than Obama’s negatives.
Caddell is a Dem. I doubt he wants Romney to win..once a Dem always a Dem
There aren't any of those, there are just 12 year trolls here trying to get Obama re-elected.
I know that because I was told that here on FR.
Do I need my industrial /sarc tag?
Three words: get over it.
I’m hoping that soon, the campaign kicks into high gear and starts running hard ads.
Caddell is correct
Not happening...This is the army we have, not the one we want, and we have to win.
We’ll deal with President Romney when the time comes. One objective at a time.
