Mitt Romney needs to grow a set. I say this for the very self-centered reason that I don’t want to see another idiotic campaign in which one side beats the other to a pulp suffering no retaliation. Also, I cannot abide watching the Obama Trons get away with the same shit one more time. If the next 3 months are to be the Asshole-in-Chief beating up on the stilted Nice Rich Mormon – I’m out. McCain played nice and got his clock cleaned. No sympathy for the GOP from this blogger but I just can’t fathom why Reid hasn’t been eviscerated yet. Where is Lee Atwater’s ghost? Where is Karl Rove in the flesh?
Harry Reid, who may be the biggest asshole in the entire lower 48 – which is quite a feat all things considered – won’t shut up. Bullies like Reid don’t respond to being ignored or scolded. They respond to being destroyed. The Republic would be better off if he was destroyed and as it stand now the GOP is the only outfit equipped to do it.
So why hasn’t the GOP done it? Do they have no impulse toward self-preservation? Do they want to lose? Do they not yet understand who they are dealing with? (Chicago gangsters…duh…) Holder is now going after GOP money bags Adelson. I think we can assume Obama’s gang means business with this tid bit. Screw Adelson. I really don’t care. But is Romney going to stand by as the attacks escalate – which they will – when the entire polluted history of Obama is available to respond with? Team Obama will pull no punches. Yet, Romney is pulling his left and right. Why?
Reid will keep farting accusations until…what?… Romney blinks and hands over 300 years of tax returns to David Axelrod. That’s what. The only thing that will stop Reid is vivisection via media. And trust me, there’s plenty to work with. Do I know where his skeletons are? Nope. But I could make some shit up right now if you like. Some dude who once rode an elevator with Obama told me he has documented proof Reid is a warlock and Obama was actually born in a Beijing brothel and had his horns removed when he was 13.
Romney seems content to allow anticipation of his VEEP choice to build. That’s what his “week” is about. This is a foolish tactic and Obama is playing him like a cheap fiddle. Expectation builds to excess. He picks someone. Expectation will have inevitably been overwrought unless Abe Lincoln is still alive and available. So the media story becomes about disappointment. We return quickly to tax returns etc. Watch. This is the narrative being juiced by Team Barry as I type.
Dukakis stank is beginning to waft over the Romney campaign. It’s subtle but it’s there. The only way to deal with bullies is to hit back – twice as hard.
And the only way to deal with the hydra head that is the Obama gang is with a metaphorical two by four, a story or two or three that is so big and damning that the media is forced to report and respond. Again, there is plenty to work with. Start with his time at Columbia. Why has the story linked landed on The Blaze for God’s sake? Get Jim Inhofe barking on the Senate floor about it. Send out the GOP pack dogs. What the hell have they been doing since Clinton was in office anyway?
I’m returning to my initial sense of Romney. He’s willing to go harsh to a degree – but simply doesn’t understand what he’s dealing with in Obama and Axelrod. He’s brought a horse and lance to fight a nuclear war. By not dropping the house on wicked witch Reid he’s either channeling John Kerry or actually does have something to hide. If the latter is true then – in the world of politics – that’s all the more reason to beat Reid to a pulp before a real story breaks. If you destroy Reid along the way at least you keep your base.
Politics is blood sport. The GOP was once masterful at it. The only Dem in a generation who could rise above it was Bill Clinton. Mitt Romney is no Bill Clinton. So unless his rich pals intend to crash the stock market in October, Mr. Romney needs to unleash the dogs, drop the anvil, push the button – choose the metaphor you like best. Obama and the media are attacking from all sides. They won’t stop until their narrative is utterly absorbed. At which point it is functionally true with the masses. Lee Atwater buried Michael Dukakis in August. Karl Rove knee capped John Kerry in August. What they said, who they were, what they proposed as candidates could never rise past how they were tagged… in August. One would think the GOP would know this game. They created it after all.
