What the hell is the matter with this guy? It’s obvious he once was a prolific problem solver. I’m baffled at how the minute he enters the political spotlight, he becomes stupefied, devoid of any semblance of common sense. Mitt, it’s the 4th quarter, there are two minutes left, you’re down two touchdowns. Quit running fullback dives. Start throwing the ball down field. Start solving problems like you have the last forty years: fire people.
Make the second bold move of this campaign and ditch your jackass of strategist Stu Stevens. You lost with him in 2008 and are assuming the position in 2012. Your campaign offers ZERO (Obama flavored) intensity or creativity. The other guy’s campaign is based on “it could have been worse,” and he’s still creating separation in the polls. This must be what Democrats felt in 2004 when they nominated the Blue Romney.
For some reason, the RNC played host to Clint Eastwood and a chair.
Obama gifts you the “you didn’t build that” softball, but instead, Stu and Co. have you at bullshit donor dinners gabbing that “the 47% didn’t build that.” You then counter with a video about Obama’s proclivity for redistribution from the last millennium. Fucking pathetic. Deleterious minutiae.
This is what Romney–like all politicians–has learned to do well: waste our time.
Our country is in a lull, starving for a boost in morale–it’s MOTHERFUCKING HALFTIME IN AMERICA, fergodsakes. (Hilarious that car companies are more in tune with the country’s pulse than the guys in charge of a presidential campaign.) Give them their halftime speech. Tell them what QE3 means for them. Explain how their gas prices and groceries will cost more, that this was borne out of the “Big O’s” failure to lead.
Then go talk to what’s left of the Rick Perry campaign, get them to sign over the rights to this video and slap your name on it. This is what a game-changing campaign ad looks like:
