Now---we know that Politico is an Obama mouthpiece. But here we go again -- "infighting" in the campaign and another embarrassing story to start the week.

The Romney campaign has to push back on these kind of things and stop letting the left-wing press set the narratives. Though, it is interesting that it appears incompetent RINOs are still #1 in charge in the campaign.

They choose to leak this crapola on a Sunday evening — all so the talking heads tomorrow will be talking about it, and the Romney campaign will deflect and be on the defensive AGAIN.

We are so ineffective at pushing back against the Obama/press narratives. Getting really frustrating - they are all trying to demoralize us

Yep, same old tactics the media used the last half dozen presidential elections. Its hard to believe the GOP hasn’t developed an effective response yet.

This is from Drudge. Why wouldn’t I post it?

The messaging from the Romney camp is confusing - let’s face it. They’re “adapting” to the fact that the press is propagandizing for Barry, instead of FIGHTING it.

Oh, I have no doubt that it's true. Politico is the weapon of choice for disgruntled GOP staff members---remember all the nasty articles about Palin that originated from Nicolle Wallace and Steve Schmidt in 2008?

Karma is a be-yotch!

Maybe because “Conservatives” spend all their time being the mindless echo chamber of the Democrat Party propaganda machine, instead of using their microphone, column, TV show to attack the failure and incompetence of the Democrat political leadership.

I agree. I’m not entirely sure why all these “anonymous” conservatives are running straight to Politico and TheHill to complain all the time. They feed the narrative.

That being said, I think the Stuart Stevens/McCainites on the Romney camp aren’t helping him. What kind of Republican would go to Politico and say “Hey look, here’s what we did!” unless they had a bone to pick.

Someone in the Romney camp needs to resign.

Because they’ve operated under the assumption that they don’t want to “offend” sensitive voters in Ohio suburbs. Not entirely sure what they think they can lose at this point by presenting a stark contrast.

Honestly, I don’t see how Romney can influence the media narrative. The days of Reagan are over. Reagan was able to speak directly to the American people. All we get today on the lamestream media is partisans seperating soundbites and immediately spinning it. It is not reporting. It’s not the truth.

Where does the media narrative truly fit reality today? Arab Spring? Nope. Economy? Nope. Zero’s promises in 2008? Nope. Green jobs? Nope. QE3? Nope.

Why would I trust what they say about Romney’s campaign?

No that is the message from the Democrat propaganda machine pretending to be "journalists" So you take a Leftist propaganda piece to justify whey you believe another Leftist propaganda piece.

NOTICE the problem here? If they had been alive in 1942 your sort of "conservatives" would of been tuning into Radio Berlin to find out how the Allied War effort was going.

It is ROMNEY who needs to attack Zero. Instead he is trying to look like a nice guy moderate who has a slightly better socialist medical plan than Zero.

Repeal AND REPLACE. Replace with a mandate that every State in the Union enact a Romneycare style plan.

And you Romneybots have the nerve to criticize Conservatives.

Are we supposed to ignore everything that’s negative about our campaign? That’s like walking blindfolded over a cliff.

If Romney doesn’t fight, he’ll lose. I’m sorry if you’re upset by the fact that people want to retool the campaign into a conservative one of stark contrasts and ideas.

Instead, we’ll now spend the whole week on the defensive from whatever story is about to break.

The Romneybots also seem to think everyone that criticizes their play-it-safe strategy is a “concern troll” or in the tank for the Kenyan

We should be up 20 points in this economy and the radical liberalism that Obama has embraced. Heck, we should be up 2 points. But we’re not - because Romney is continually allowing the media and Obama campaign to set the narrative.

And if someone in the Romney campaign decided to run to Politico and say, “Hey guess what we did?” - they should be fired. Period.

Maybe they simply don’t exist. After all the 2004 “Bush National Guard” story was simply a CBS “News” manufactured myth.

There are hundreds of examples where these “anonymous” sources turn out to be a figment of the reporters mind.

Do you really believe that anyone who doesn’t agree with every Romney play-it-safe strategy is a concern troll? Dude, I’ve donated hundreds to the Romney campaign and volunteered my time.

Not everyone who hasn’t been posting on this site is some troll. Lose the misguided paranoia.

Romney is playing "run out the clock" when he is down by 10 points.

Romney really is as stupid as he looks.

Tell that to Drudge. Not everything that isn’t 100% positive isn’t “real news.” Do you really think that all the McCain staffers that Romney employed aren’t pulling the same BS that they pulled in 2008 with their “words of caution?”

This is all over the conservative twittersphere, by the way.

All he has to do is use You Tube. Set up his channel and use it to speak directly and unfiltered to the issues in question.

Why is that so hard for campaigns to understand?

Unless they just don’t want to.

There was a story on Buzzfeed that Paul Ryan wanted the campaign to be more “idea-oriented.”

He gave a great speech at Values Voters Summit. I also think that we need to see more of him on the stump. The propaganda press hides the fact that he has a very high favorability rating

The Romneybots also seem to think

At least the "romneybots think instead of mindlessly clinging to their sour grapes because their candidate of choice lost the GOP nomination.

Seems you "Conservatives for the Reelection of President Obama" (CREEP0) posters would rather lie about your agenda then simply come out and admit what your are doing.

Since either Romney or Obama will be the next President, you are actively working for Obama. You are busy propagandizing for the Obama campaign. That might not be the intent of your actions, it is the consequence.
