What’s Wrong with Romney

So just what’s wrong with Mitt Romney’s campaign?  Well, Mark Steyn, commentator, columnist, radio host, and author, has concisely and accurately hammered the political nail directly on the head.  I don’t know who is providing the highly-paid campaign advice for Mr. Mitt, but there needs to be a Come to Jesus confrontation within his consultative ranks.

Mitt’s strategy for 2012 as for 2008 was to sit on his lead and run out the clock.  Four years ago, that strategy died in New Hampshire; this time round it died one state later.  Congratulations!

He’s not a natural campaigner, and on the stump he instinctively recoils from any personal connection with the voters. So, in compensation, he’s bought himself a bunch of A-list advisers and a lavish campaign.

For a guy running as a chief exec applying proven private-sector solutions, his campaign looks awfully like an unreformable government bureaucracy: big, bloated, overstaffed, burning money, slow to react, and all but impossible to change.

The Romney candidacy is better than it was four years ago, but it’s not clear that it’s good. Mitt needs to get good real fast: A real speech, real plan, real responses, and real fire in the belly.

And I think that about sums it up.  If Mitt doesn’t start pulling away from the Republican establishment and their milquetoast mannikin middle-of-the road presidential model, he’s going to fade, and fade fast.

    The American voters are absolute idiots if they prefer somebody like Gingrich to Mitt Romney. They’re acting like children in the studio audience of a kiddie show — clamoring for more and more entertainment — instead of like rational adults.

    I keep hearing that Newt didn’t really serve his wife (whichever numbered wife it was) with divorce papers while she lay in the hospital with breast cancer. As if WHEN HE SERVED HER THOSE PAPERS is the point. The point is that HE DIVORCED HER THEN. And there is no question that he screwed around on both of his previous wives — he doesn’t even attempt to deny that.

    Mitt Romney has been with the same woman all these years. When she was battling first her own breast cancer and then multiple sclerosis, he stood solidly by her and helped nurse her back to health. Sure, that’s boring to many people. Newt’s big floppy shoes and red rubber nose and squirting carnatin are funnier.

    I thought we were electing the leader of a free world — in a time of great national crisis — and not the successor to Bozo the Clown.
