A Place for All Conservatives to Speak Their Mind.
The biggest tactical blunder by Team Romney, IMHO:Allowing Team Obama to define Romney as a "greedy corporate raider" with those grossly dishonest TV ads. Those ads could've been so easily refuted in so many different ways, but Team Romney decided instead to "stay on message" regarding the economy.Politics 101 - When your opponent is lying about you, you must expose the lies, and then hold your opponent accountable for telling the lies to begin with."Have you no shame, President Obama?" was a punchline just begging to be used in TV and/or radio ads by Team Romney, but unfortunately, they chose not to go down that road. Not all attack ads have to be answered, except those that strike at the heart of a candidate's character and conduct, like the Bain ads.Team Romney obliterated Newt Gingrich, among others, with attack ads during the GOP primaries.They should have known that Team Obama could do the same to Romney in the fall campaign.
In watching FOX's coverage of the election results last night, it was quite telling that Karl Rove was the only talking head who seemed to be genuinely upset about Romney's loss.The rest of the crew seemed delighted, amused, or indifferent.Like I've always said, anyone who thinks that FOX is truly a conservative news outlet, just isn't paying attention.
