Skip to comments.Romney says his campaign doesn’t need a ‘turnaround’
Posted on 09/23/2012 8:51:31 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Mitt Romney insisted his campaign is not in need of a "turnaround" in spite of polls showing President Barack Obama expanding his lead in battleground states.
In an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes," the Republican presidential nominee rejected criticism from conservative pundits who have called his campaign incompetent.
"It doesn't need a turnaround," Romney insisted, pointing to national polls that have him "tied" with Obama. "I've got a very effective campaign. It's doing a very good job."

I already knew that with you nobody’s home.
The correct response would be to demand the resignations of the Bitch of State and Susan Rice for lying to the American people.
Then, once the foreign policy thing dies down, we can return to the ongoing questions of the Economy, the Decline of the United States, the Future of our Children, and what not.
Really? More personal attack?
Yes..... total disdain. I am sickened when he reacted to the deaths of 4 Americans so lightly - he doesn’t care at all. This is just a blip. He is the most evil person that has ever sat in our WH.
It would take too much effort to go through the whole Romney chosen for 2012 by the GOPe thing and how we knew in 2008 that his only threat was Palin.
Vote for whom you wish, but it won’t help conservatism to allow him to operate on his personal agenda, as though we don’t know who he is.
We do not have to create a fantasy Romney for people to vote against Obama, which is all that Romney has to offer anyway.
Romney should go to a prestigious forum like the National Press Club and give a speech outlining the failure of Obama's Middle East policy, the failure of appeasement, the fact that it is now in shambles, and emphasize the lies resorted to to conceal the extent of the failure which is Obama's personal failure alone.
He should accuse Obama of knowingly sending is Secretary of State and his ambassador to the United Nations out to lie to the American public to cover his own failures. Romney should carefully, repeat carefully, indict the media for its handling of the entire matter since Benghazi.
It should not be apologetic and tone but a full throated indictment of Obama personally.
Romney should make Benghazi the metaphor for the failure of the Obama administration across the board. The media did this to George Bush when it made Katrina a metaphor for the failure of the Bush administration, especially in Iraq. Romney who will not get any help from the media but he can go on the attack and change the entire trajectory of the campaign by getting off defense and getting onto offense.
If Romney makes Benghazi the metaphor for failure, he links it to Obama's failed economic policies and it will not send him back in his campaign but make across-the-board failures crystallize into a single metaphor.
Benghazi == Katrina! Gotta love it!
But of course, the Katrina response was a local and state mess, whereas Benghazi was a failure of foreign policy, for which the President has direct responsibility.
I agree, Romney should not let this one go to waste!
Whatever the polls say or the pundits say, or the lamestream media say for the next week is immaterial. The next judgment day will be the 1st debate, followed by the Ryan/Biden debate, and 2 more Prez debates. Then we will see what the polls say. Right now the polls are just not pertinent. The debates are where it’s at next. Also, I highly suspect that in the last couple of weeks, you will see all but the most crooked of polls tighten up considerably, within 2-3 points of each other, because none of the pollsters want to be caught with their pants down when the end result becomes self evident. They all will be hedging their bets. Of course the only true poll is on November 6th, and I suspect the silent majority will make their voices known on that day.
I cannot imagine conservatives permitting themselves any longer to be shackled to a Rino establishment which serves up one pathetic moderate candidate waging yet another pathetic moderate campaign.
Given the insanity of the left, that may be more of a realistic perspective than we'd like to imagine. If Mitt wins, he'd better have a massive buildup of SS protection.
I think we have discussed all the reasons nominating Romney was a bad idea, back in the winter and spring.
The insanity of allowing a “winner” to be designated in a party primary when 65% of the voters choose somebody else is revealed.
On November 7, there will be plenty of time for “I told you so”.
Now is not the time.
hello? This “gossipy woman” posted why she is voting FOR Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.
Presidential elections, in the United States of America, in the year 2012 are between the nominees of two political parties. You might want that changed, you can do your part on that, but not by typing on a “conservative” website’s message board.
This year, we have Barack Obama whose record for the past four years as President of the United States of America is horrible at best. Unemployment is holding at a unsustainable level, more Americans than ever are beholden to the federal government for their mere existence, allies of this country have been publically insulted, race relations are at a low point that I’ve seen in my lifetime and let’s not even talk about the out of control spending. Mitt Romney, the republican candidate, nominated after a long and intense battle among the republicans (especially the ones here), has stated his intentions. Call Israel a friend, address the ever increasing on producers tax issues, repeal Obama Care. Just a few points.
Your choice is between those two candidates. Oh, you could write in some other name just to have some sort of ‘protest’ vote under your belt. I am going to start with the premise that you’re intelligent, you haven’t shown me anything to alter that thought, so you are well aware of the consequences of a non vote for the republican candidate or the writing in of a third party candidate, or a protest non vote.
This isn’t childish personal stuff.
This is the future of our country.
Get out there and work to elect the nominee of the Republican Party, Mitt Romney
OR, just keep complaining. Your choice.
“All Mitt can do, is hope that there are enough people who dislike Obama enough to choose, ‘the other guy’.”
And for me, for this election, that’s good enough. Whatever it takes.
This photo of Obama leading his campaign for September, shows serious problems brewing.
So the headline for this morning: Romney's Campaign in Disarray
thanks for your kind words.
I really do get disgusted when I read some of the posts here.
I see what you are saying here, and think you on the right sort of track. Yet the Benghazi mess might not be the best to have central focus upon. It's awkward now (but hopefully in a good way?). People in Libya, along with official "police" have moved against the militias there in effort to oust them. The killing of our ambassador appears to have been the trigger --- IF we can believe what has been broadly publicized (BBC, NY Times, various Arab language news, etc.)
However, if it could be achieved the result could be devastating for Obama because it would starkly put into place his failures across the board and make them clear as his personal responsibility, the unavoidable result of his radical leftist ideology.
The average voter would have everything, foreign and domestic, fall into place.
You know, I had an epiphany last night as I slept. Upon awakening this morning, I recalled my glorious dream. It was Nov. 6, and as I went behind the curtains...I just couldn't bring myself to pull the lever for an IMPURE CONSERVATIVE *gasp* Mormon to be president of these United States. After all, I've seen the light and error of my ways.
Since none of the anti-Romney HTTB ever informed me who I should vote for instead, I wrote in MINNIE MOUSE because she has as much chance of defeating the evil Marxist Czar in the White House as any other third party. How did I ever come to a decision? My oh my...it was difficult, but I finally decided I may as well vote for whomever has the CUTEST SHOES.
p.s. Have you ever seen Minnie's wardrobe? She has the most adorable hair bows and ribbons. I know it'll just make my 2 year old granddaughter so proud that I was persuaded to vote for her favorite character.
