For a while now, the Obama camp has been acting like they are scared of Mitt Romney. They have been fairly obvious about it. OK, very obvious.
I have suspected for some time that this is a head fake. They really want Romney.
Dem operatives have been letting it “slip” that they are really afraid of Romney but so far, the media has treated Romney with relative kid gloves.
Now to confirm my thoughts, check out this particular piece of political fiction from Laurence O’Donnell claiming Obama doesn’t want to tun against Romney.
That confirms it, they want Romney. Bad!!
Donna Brazile, running off at the mouth on TV the other day, may have even let the truth slip.
“Mitt Romney won tonight because no one touched him. And for Democrats, you know what? It was good news for us . . . because we believe that the weakest candidate is the candidate that the Republicans are not attacking. And that’s Mitt Romney.”
So the class warriors want Romney. I wonder why?
Palin said the mainstream media would take a hands-off approach to Romney “in order to bolster Romney’s chances” to “finally face Obama.”
According to Palin, the mainstream media and Obama would then portray Romney as someone who is out of touch with regular Americans in the general election.
“They are already gearing up to portray him, accurately or inaccurately … as being out of touch with the working class,” Palin said, nothing that Romney’s wealth and perfect family may make it easy to paint him as someone “being a bit out of touch from working and middle class Americans and from the challenges we all face.”
Palin continued: “My opinion is that I can see what’s coming … the media will try to bolster Romney so they can tear him down, and that is quite unfortunate.”
She is exactly right. They intend class warfare and Mitt is the poster child for that. I dunno if it will be effective, but that is their plan. They want Romney.
