Ask him about McDonnell helping Romney in Virginia and North Carolina when he is on the ticket.

In his case VP would stand for Vaginal Probe.

Unlike slackers who are content to live in their parents' basement well into their 20s (30s?), most of America is not satisfied with mediocrity, especially after the promises of "hope" and "change" in 2008. This environment is not conducive to winning re-election. It is why Obama is in trouble unless something positive happens in the foreign policy realm.

Team Obama is screwed if their whole strategy revolves around painting Romney as a flip-flopper. Why?



I suspect that the Obama campaign will focus mostly on Romney being out of touch with the needs and concerns of ordinary people.



I hate to say it, but if I were in charge of Obama's team I would believe that my only chance of victory starts with bombing Iran, and causing a successful military engagement there.

You don't hate to say it. Clearly you enjoy saying it a great deal.

In terms of job creation, Obama's record is much better, of course, if you look only at private-sector jobs. The public sector has shrunk, as you know, in his time in office. Despite this having been a worse recession than the one that began in 2001, private-sector job creation has been significantly faster under Obama than under Bush II.

Speaking of 30s, that's also the decade FDR won re-election with unemployment at 17%.  And the job approval range of last incumbents to lose.

Every candidate does this....the problem is Romney doesn't know how to do it without sounding like a desperate jackass.

He is like a basketball player who can't pivot.......

How did this guy get to be a campaign advisor? All candidates do this, but why would anyone say this? They are already making videos taking things Romney has said out of context, the general election has practically started, and now this? I'm absolutely through with being frustrated at this idiotic campaign, I mean after a huge success, then this happens? I'm out. Looks I won't get to vote in the primary either, since PA is Rick's state me voting for him would be pointless as I'm not politically active enough to waste time voting in a uncontested race.

The irony is the Dems are arguing this is proof that Romney is going to try to hide his true extreme agenda and Santorum and Gingrich are arguing that he is hiding his true moderate agenda

That's what happens when you have two faces. Sooner or later you forget which is the real one.

The real question is how Romney was ever taken seriously as a candidate.

As usual, people start taking a statement out of context.

But this idiot of a so called advisor should be fired in no uncertain terms.

Obviously this stupid remark by this idiotic hopefully former advisor was taken out of context.

When one is in a Presidential campaign, it is conducted differently than a primary campaign.

Clearly a Presidential campaign differs from a primary campaign in terms of organization.

That is what was meant by this statement.

No, in each case you state your case to the electorate. Everything said before the convention is as much a part of that case as things said after the convention.

While the remark was "stupid," it simply wasn't "taken out of context." He said what he meant, and meant what he said.

Some things to consider:

1. What people consider to be flip flopping differs greatly

2. The person who would most need to flip flop is not Romney but Santorum as Santorum has been the one to take more extreme positions and talk about less than important issues.

Romney will most likely repudiate the Arizona Immigration Law (and other state laws he has had the misfortune of commenting on. I have some ideas on how this will play out but that isn't the subject of this thread). He was also insist that he has been totally misrepresented and always supported gov't financial support for management bankruptcy of auto companies (this actually isn't completely untrue). Talk of federal right to work will go away.

Then there is whatever constitutes a likely olive branch to Ron Paul and his people. I almost want to say this will occur whether Romney needs the delegates or not. Either him realizing their importance the way Mike Steele did or it being forced on him by the Ninjas.

But Romney's general focus on the economy, defict and such won't change. They are the issues of the day and the issues which the election will likely hinge, possibly along with healthcare.
