Unfortunately for Romney, Krauthammer is correct.
Whomever Romney is listening to and following their advice, needs to be fired. The strategy is ineffective. Duplicating the Republican party nomination strategy is a game-LOSER. Romney made it to the top of the Republican ticket not because of his lofty ideas on policy but because the contestants in the race were worse than him for various reasons. He can not expect to win (and won’t) by simply being the “not O” ballot selection.
And he needs think about the possibility of his first term. Now is when platform is defined and the crucial first 100 days are shaped. Going in as “not O” will not position him or his administration for hitting the ground successfully.
Mitt – replace the voices in your head. America is in desperate need of top quality leadership which requires innovative and game-changing strategy.
Going into the debate scares me. He is not prepared for this. He does not have the year of solid preparation, principles and ideas formed to enter the debate. He is going in unprepared which with the MSM spinning and shaping the actual debate and then their commentary on its results —– he is all ready circling the drain.
Mitt – wake up! Step up!
