Romney’s strategy from the start was to dropkick Obama at the end. The only pitfalls now (barring an October surprise) would be the next two debates.
I think the next debate is really the last oe that will matter. It is town hall - definite wild card right there. Third debate is foreign policy only. People will sleep through that one.
The potential of an October surprise is why you need large sums of money at the end, as insurance to cancel it out with wall-to-wall attack ads.
A lot canhappen in the next few weeks. I’m not counting out an October surprise. In fact, I’m expecting it. And the next two debates. I hope Romney can keep up the momentum.
I believe that the intended “October Surprise” by -bama’s campaign had to do with competently handling some foreign crisis after the 9/11 attacks. That is now completely fizzled and backfired. In fact, if they do something now such as shooting up some village or group of townhouses in Libya “that belong to the rebels who killed our ambassador”, instead of gaining support of the American people, he will lose even his own supporters - those who have not yet voted.
Agree. He did exactly the same thing in the GOP primaries, if the Washington Post had bothered to notice.
Incessant, back-to-back, 24/7 Romney ads here in Florida destroyed Gingrich.
As a Gingrich supporter, I loathed them, but they worked.
