Skip to comments.Mitt Romney: How to Lose the Most Important Election of our Time by not Really Trying
Posted on 09/22/2012 8:28:48 AM PDT by Stepan12
Mitt Romney is losing the most important election of our lifetime. Dont be deceived by the polls that show him within the margin of error. Dont put your faith in last minute media-buys from the campaigns gargantuan war chest.
Dont expect the debates to turn things around. The president may not be an electrifying speaker, but he knows how to demagogue. His message will be: I love the middle class; Mitt Romney wants tax cuts for millionaires and eats children.
And, dont count on the fact that public opinion is against Obama on almost every significant issue. (At no time since its passage has less than a majority favored repeal of Obamacare.)
The stars should be perfectly aligned for a Republican blowout this year. The economy is in the dumpster deficits to dwarf anything weve seen in the past, the highest sustained unemployment since the Great Depression, anemic growth, huge tax hikes just around the corner, consumer prices through the ceiling and the man responsible for it all is coasting to a second term.
The Governor, bless his bland little heart, is the worst candidate the GOP has fielded since Viagra Bob Dole so bad he makes John McCain look like Harry Truman on his 1948 Whistle Stop Tour.
Almost every national poll shows Romney behind by 1 to 8 points Rasmussen (Obama 47%, Romney 45%) Gallup (47% to 46%), Washington Post (52% to 44%), AP (47% to 46%) and Pew Research (51% to 43%).

WOW , every story being posted is crapping on Romney ,why not just change the United States to Obama States now and get it over with LOL
It’s not just Romney’s fault. America has some die hard morons who just love Obama. They may not be as vocal about as they were four years ago but they are still out there and will vote for Obastard again.
We also have the most dishonest media ever. The kind of press that Stalin would be proud of.
A typical shoot your own side in the back instead of using your forum to attack the Leftist Media machine from another faux conservative media clown
Yep and rather then help get the Conservative message out to counteract the Leftist media people like this author spend all their time shooting their own in the back.
And then they wonder why their side always loses.
Early voting starts in TN on Oct 17, 25 days from now...
Other states also have early voting...
Does Willard intend to spend his multi million dollar war chest on ads in the next 3 1/2 weeks ???
Do you ever intend to attack Obama on anything?
Don Feder is a true Conservative; not a faux conservative.
I said I hope he is wrong; however, my family has known him for decades and I feel I cannot just ignore him.
And yes it would be better to have Sarah, Herman, or Al West.
Unfortunately, we have what we have. And luckily the Dems have even worse.
However, with the release of the 47% tape, maybe Romney does have a clue.
Aha, beating Romney machine is in full run. I have never heard of Don Fader, but if he is a conservative, he’s parroting the news meme, Romney will fail.
This is not a good article, it is not even productive for the conservative cause. What is Don trying to achieve?
Any possible change from the Romney camp is not going to come about from the words of Don Fader.
Why not ask Newt to prep Mittens for the debates? Time to call Obama out for the loser that he is.
You’d never catch the Dems doing this...they boost up and fight and defend obama with their last dying breath...but this is what “our side” does, day in and day out. Kick Romney when he’s down and double down on him when he’s up. Getting so tired of this garbage.
The conservative pundits are scared spitless because their conservative books, news columns, and radio shows have made them rich. They will be severely punished by Obama in his second term. And who do they blame? Romney, the same candidate they were touting as the “only viable candidate who can win” during the primaries.
Tough luck, boys and girls. Better start thinking of Plan B when the IRS will be calling on you, “encouraging” you to give your “fair share” to Obama’s voters.
Have you forgotten your spanking already ???
I would expect a ‘conservative columnist’ with an experienced background in national politics to be smart enough to see how much the sands have shifted under the media and look into the sampling data of these contrived polls and the voting models they are using based on the 2008 election rather than the 2010 mid term.
I hope our culture is not so completely foul that Romney’s truth telling in the past weeks (47% remarks, embassy remarks) is regarded as a gaffe by the public and not just the smears of our drive by media. If the former is true, we live in a truly insane country :(
Feder or not.... not a great writing this time around... what he seems to be railing against or should be is how to get out the message when the message delivering system is rigged against you. I totally disagree the debates will be meaningless and although I expect the usual bias in questions Mitt will be able to speak direct... he can make his cause here as Americans this time around are concerned and will be watching...
P.S. I have also been saying that since the primaries the party has helped the left, liberals and Democrats beat up on Romney. In fact most here never supported him and swore to never ever vote for him. I see now less of this but that was damaging even back then....
Same thing for Senate in Wisconsin - many voted for Tommy Thompson as "the only one who can beat Tammy Baldwin".
The primaries are over and the roaring tigers have become mewling little kittens hiding under the bed.
And those of us who backed other candidates are left to shake our heads....and quake in our boots over the idea that America could be done for in a mere few weeks.
Really want to argue, as Feder does, that poling based on an assumption that Obama will get a greater voter turn out in 2012 then he did in 2008 is serious?
