"A top strategist for Mitt Romney confirmed.." and yet, was what that same top strategist for Mitt claimed confirmed by ABC, or as par, they simply took it as the gosepel "confirmed" truth? =.=

When one realizes the Politico writers spent the weekend at the DNC Headquarters working on this story, it becomes a lot clearer what is going on.

It’s an acceptance speech, not State of the Union.

Dear Lord, the ME is erupting in a fireball in front of our eyes and the media want to focus on an old speech by Romney while stirring up the meme that the Romney camp is in conflict?

Anything to prevent the country from seeing their Dear Precious as the incompetent and way in over his head buffoon that he is. The lapdog media, same as it ever was.

Uh Oh! Politico- the most trustworthy news source... has another "inside scoop" based upon anonymous fabricated quotes made by Obama staffers "sources". The Romney campaign is in disarray!- unlike Obozo's foreign policy record...

Let's all form a circular firing squad and take our eye off the ball. When David Axelrod throws his little change-the-subject ball and says "fetch", we should do so...

The question is not the disarray, but what is the effectiveness of the campaign?

How has the “Romney Plan” been working out for Romney/Ryan?

Looks to me that the most likely to vote folks don’t see much difference between Obama and Romney.

The polls reflect the perceived difference between what Obama has done to America, and what Romney plans to do.

Can Romney actually say what he plans to do without comparing his plans to Obama’s?

My guess is that Romney will just continue to describe what Obama has done, and thus act as a perverse salesman FOR Obama’s base who like what Obama has done., and thus be encouraged that the Republicans are unhappy.

The Independent voter will usually vote FOR the incumbent if there is no perceived significant difference between any two candidates: “He may be a devil, but at least we know where he stands.”

Romney cannot compare his ideas to Obama’s, because that ties his and Obama’s ideas together in the mind of an undecided voter in an either-or-knot, and the undecided voter will usually choose the best known, ie, the incumbent.

Thus, it is up to Romney to sell his plan independent of anything tied to Obama. No jokes, hints, or nuances: just straight sales!

Can Romney give a speech without any direct or indirect to what Obama has done?

Can Romney stand and deliver his Romney Plan, or will he just continue to play that old nanny-nanny boo-boo game of “My plan is better than your plan! Nanny-nanny, boo-boo.”?

Tick-tock, Romney. Tick-tock.

He’s running Kerry’s campaign, Kerry said, “I have a plan”, but he never really said what it was.....Bush was very beatable, but Kerry basically ran on “Vote for me because I’m not Bush.” Just as Mitt is running on, “Vote for me because I’m not Obama.”

Everyone has a “pet issue”, and every speech can’t mention every issue. If they did, the speeches would be as numerous, long, and boring as obamas speeches.

It’s also funny that the media can pick apart everyone’s else’s speeches, except their demi-god obamas; no matter what he says, the media magically condenses it down to “peace”, “love”, and “fairness”.

Yesterday is past, and documented. We all know the havoc that Obama has wreaked upon America. Tomorrow is not here yet, but the knee-padded MSM is already telling us everything that Romney will do, or say, if he wins.

I guess the press have crystal balls, but crystal balls can be shattered by steel balls, and that’s what Romney needs to have to win. So far, he seems to just have ping-pong balls, going back and forth on some issues.

But, all things considered, I’d rather have the Moran than the Muzzie.
