Counter Intelligence,I understand that strategy and I understand
that it has worked in the past. I don't however think it is going to work
this time. Being the best of two bad options isn't good enough. I just
watched Mr. Romney on Meet the Press. He was unwilling to give any specific
things he would do to get us out of this mess. He wants us to trust him, but
has given no one a reason to trust. He needs to be brave and set a new course
with specifics. You mention why isn't the President running on his record?
It doesn't matter what the President is doing, if Mr. Romney is going to
win, it is about what he does. His current strategy may have worked in the
past, but to this point Mr. Romney has not made a connection with the American
people. He is not selling the people in the swing states and that will cause
him the election.
@Fred44"Why can't the republicans give reasons to vote for
them?" Better question: Why wont Obama run on his own record?
He knows he will lose. His only chance is to make the alternative candidate not
palatable to the voters. So while Republican attacks center on Obama's
failed economy; Obama focuses on the personal destruction of his opponent
(felon, liar, cancer causer)All second term elections are about the
incumbent.Therefore the smartest campaign of a good Republican
candidate will be to protect his personal reputation from destruction, provide
enough policy reasons to see a difference (but not to be too controversial),
then allow Obama to destroy himself.You might not like that
strategy, but it is the one that has worked in the past for both parties for
second term upsets.
Why can't the republicans give reasons to vote for them? There campaign is
based on why you shouldn't vote for the other guy? They attack everyone,
the President, unions, hollywood, teachers, government workers, and yet if
somebody mentions that rich people should maybe pay a little more in tax they
are haters. Why not run on what you have done that is positive and your vision
of the future instead of what is wrong with the other guy and those who support
republican vp bag boy paul ryan...so many lies...(except
of course his 2:50 time in the marathon)
