OK to be fair.

I am all for Romney getting aggressive.

I do question however the WaPo in this regard.

(a lot)

Anyone know the author?

Be cautious whenever papers publish statements from “anonymous Republicans”

They are usually anonymous because the source is a well-known RINO, or they don’t exist. Remember what these “insiders” said about Paul Ryan.

I find his presidency and economy baffling.

Congressional Republicans said Romney should make a concise, bold promise to reform wasteful spending in Washington.

“He should say, ‘I will manage your money in Washington. I will eliminate waste, fraud and abuse. Obama wants you to send more money so he can spend more money.’”

I’d love to see Romney’s internal polling.

These guys are either 100% convinced they’ve won already or they are idiots. Let’s hope for the former.

I’d like for Romney to come up with a specific list of things that he will repair when elected.

Romney also declined to attack Obama over his characterization of Egypt as not being an ally, something his advisers have done. He pointed out that the country is, officially, a non-NATO ally, but explained what the president seemed to mean.

So now we have the 'helpful' Mitt stepping in to clean up Obama's verbal messes.

Memo to the Romney campaign: Nice guys finish last!

A quote from a McCain strategist. Priceless.

One thing you never see is the Democrats off message like this. There are all these players who are nominally Republicans (Peggy “I voted for Obama because I wanted to look cool” Noonan, Steve “MSNBC prostitute”Schmidt, John Weaver (McCain actually fired him), the ever present anonymous GOP stategist which does not have the guts to speak on the record, and others) who are trying to advance their own cause by undermining Romney’s campaign.

You would never see a Democrat do this.

As opposed to Obama’s message of a long hard road to poverty and marxist enlightenment?

The Weekly Standard published an open letter to Romney from contributor Peter J. Hansen urging him to be more specific in his policy prescriptions. Conservative media titan Rupert Murdoch this week tweeted: “Romney must draw a clear line: offer a specific path to restore the American dream versus ugly Obama class war with jobs disappearing.”

Again no one named in the entire article, thus completely made up out of whole clothe to meet a libs deadline. Just like the anonymous Republican strategist. No attribution, then the “person” does not exist. No balls, no glory.

Two legislators said Romney’s image as a seasoned Mr. Fix-it is undermined by the perceived vagueness of his policy agenda.

“If you’re going to bring it to the American people, you’ve got to show details,” said the lawmaker who questioned what he saw as efforts during the GOP convention to cast Romney as a warm and fuzzy candidate.

Or the opposite. The polling is bad, and they are looking for a wa forward.
