In the absence of a candidate who has any poetry who has any ability to connect on an emotional level how do you create a bond?
Romneys agenda, the adviser said, is warmed-over oatmeal and needs to be bolder.
If youre a super-charismatic candidate like George W. Bush or John McCain...They had other, more emotional-level, values-level ways to connect with voters. This guy just doesnt have it. He has all the warmth of a Wall Street CEO.
...the more they put on a facade, the more people pick up on it.
"...Mitt Romney is still a big question mark. Whats his core? Does this guy have a core, or is this just a guy running because he wants to be president?
This operative, who has observed Romney close up, said that Romney had become overprogrammed.
The operative...expressed serious doubts about Romneys scriptwriters. He was scornful of Romneys mid-February speech before the Conservative Political Action Conference, which used the word conservative 35 times.
Its like saying, Im a car, Im a car, Im a car, trying to convince people youre a car...
Romney...had become like a golfer with too many thoughts in his head, which is why he blurted out in that CPAC speech that he was severely conservative.
Even though some of it may not be programmed, in his head has been put this heuristic Ive got to parse everything because people are worried. And so, when you do that, you dont talk right, because youre thinking about every single word. And so youre trying to it just messes you up.
There were bad memories of Romneys interview with Foxs Bret Baier in November: On camera, Romney had seemed agitated, impatient and even angry and later complained to his aides that he felt set up.

LOL, I was just going to say-—McCain? Super-charismatic? LOLOL.....
Romney can hang it up. It’s sad that, with all his money, he can’t buy himself a personality.
Romney - another smirking state supremacist. Unfit to live in a free society.
What's wrong? HE IS! Well, not like that Charismatic Standard, Bob DOle... now THERE was a charismatic guy beyond ANY other!
Romney, if he is the nominee, has only one hope - mock Barack Obama on his record. The only good news is that there is so much material to work with.
You have just had 3 1/2 years of Dear Leader leading us on the Path to Socialism and after that comes Communism or failure and rioting. You guys are either Obama’s useful Idiots or just Dolts. Wise up, Any Body BUTT Obama.
