You’re missing the point. The day belongs to Obama and the democrats. This is about the statist dictator and mob rule. Will congress stand up and confront him or ket it go? I don’t have a desire to be Romney’s cheering section but he has been on offense and totally focused on the economy, jobs, taxes, Obama’s all out failure and division of the country. Doesn’t sound like he’s playing prevent defense to me. Why would he allow Obama to take him off message now? Have you seen the Rasmussen numbers this week? There is a long way to go and he is not only taking on Obama and the Leftist Democrats, but also the entire leftist media. Right now the media is scrambling to cover Obama’s sorry butt and they aren’t doing a good job of it.
Obama is in panic mode with this move and it is already backfiring. I will agree with you that Romney is not a great candidate but he is playing offense in this race.
Off message? His 'message' is supposed to reflect his accord with a majority of the American people, our traditions, laws, and Constitution.
It's also supposed to be responsive to unfolding events. People need to see leadership, and there's no better way to do that when challenging an incumbent president, than a crack-fire, correct response to his missteps and blunders.
Romney was crack-fire, alright, but with precisely the WRONG response.
