    ‘In tight race, Romney can't adopt safe strategy’

    Romney has a strategy?

    Romney failed to learn from Mccain you cannot play to the hard right during the primary then try to play to the middle come election time. There are just to many ways for your past words to haunt you in our modern digital age.

    I half agree with Baron when the GOP loses again they need to take a close look at how much influence they are allowing the far right to have in their party.

    What Michael Gerson really meant is "Losing in the polls, Romney NEEDS to adopt SOME KIND of strategy"

    Obama's got a way better slapshot than carter, and Romney just doesn't have much of a goaltender.

    and Obama is not Carter; and Romney is by NO means Reagan

    As much a conservaitve ideolize Ronald Reagan,
    He'd be boo'd, hissed, and tarred and feather by today's Tea-Party for being too LIBERAL.

    With today's economy, and Obama doing so little to change it,
    Romney should be winning by 35 points!

    He isn't, just proving how BAD Romney is doing....

    The problem is Mitt Romney is too busy out 'adopting' virtually everything.

    He has no integirty,
    He is like a ship without a rudder.

    Like another President [Hinckley] who he should listening to once said --

    Stand for Something!

    It's also been said,
    If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

    Mitt Romney is busy trying to be all things to all people -- THAT's why he fails.

    He's fake, not genuine...and most people can see through it.

    As George Will said recently: (to paraphrase) If the GOP can't win in this environment, they need to pull out of politics and move into another line of business.

    "Under normal circumstances, this would recommend a presidential pivot to an aggressive job creation agenda."

    there is no such thing as a universally accepted agenda for "aggressive job creation".

    However, it is undeniable that many well respected economist would suggest government stimulus.
    You may not agree, but you cannot discount the fact that stimulus is a valid option.

    I think it is unreasonable to beat up Obama for not creating jobs when his proposed jobs bills have been blocked by the GOP.
