Byron York: How did vaunted Romney Death Star break down?

I don’t know why Romney should be expected to be on the attack 24/7.
Considering the overreach by the Obama campaign, maybe Romney should give him a little more rope before he yanks the rug out from under him. Let Obama say things that are so absolutely unbelievable that he destroys himself.
You don’t want to use up all your ammo while Obama is damaging himself. Hold onto some of the dirt, then dump it on them right before election day.
“Many — voters and insiders alike — remarked that when the general election campaign came around, Romney had better attack Barack Obama with the same ferocity he attacked Gingrich.”
I’m with gastorgrab on this one. It’s not a question of “if”, it’s a question of “when”. Better for Romney to keep his powder dry ’till after the summer, then, in the last 6 weeks before Nov. 6, when most a-political people start paying attention, carpetbomb the holy crap out of Chicago Jesus.
“Let Obama say things that are so absolutely unbelievable that he destroys himself.”
Yes, and he is doing exactly that.
He’s unravelling, but his rope is not.
From what I have read, Romney may just be allowing the Obama team time to burn itself out and then start hitting when it will be effective.
Like a seasoned jockey,you hold back,till the last stretch.
I think that some analysts are letting the Obama campaign to set the intensity of the campaign. Obama’s reelection effort is by far the most vicious and frantic that i can remember. But that doesn’t mean that going berserk on the opposition is the way to win the election.
Let’s face it, some of the liberal attacks are just plain stupid. Responding to them would only lend credibility to the idiotic argument. If the Obama team wants to make a laughing stock of themselves, then Mitt should get out of their way.
Mitt should be smarter, not necessarily faster than the Obama team. I’d like to see Mitt make a peace offering to Gingrich in private, and coordinate their message. Let liberals think that Newt still has a chip on his shoulder and they’ll invite him on the weekend talk-shows. Then let the fireworks begin!
I’d like to see Newt in Romney’s cabinet. Let the man do what he enjoys doing. Let the liberals tailor their defense to the Romney approach, then sick Gingrich on them. It’ll be hilarious!
MI: Approximately two years ago…not quite two years ago…I received information pertaining to an election contingency plan. For 2012. After the 2010 elections there were particular operatives…specific to the Obama administration and Democratic Party leadership…indicating an overwhelming need to secure a second term for President Obama. That document’s title was…(pauses)
WSI: He can be trusted – I give you my word. Please proceed.
MI: That document’s title was “By Any Means Necessary”. It was unofficial – but we know it came directly from channels specific to the administration. We confirmed that.
UM: What channels? Who are you talking about?
MI: We believe it to have been authored by Mr. Sunstein. Reviewed and approved by Valerie Jarrett. Preparations for implementation are being done in part by Mr. Leo Gerard coordinating with…with high ranking officials within the Department of Justice, Homeland Security…and…the U.S. military.
UM: Leo Gerard? The union leader? How would he play a part in this?
WSI: Mr. Gerard has direct experience in toppling a government working directly with similar forces that would be in play here in the United States. You did some work on that…perhaps look more closely at what exactly happened in Brazil. It was a coup. An overthrow of government. A joint effort between Big Labor and certain business groups in which law enforcement helped facilitate the final push.
Brazil was a regime change orchestrated by Leo Gerard and soon after personally and financially congratulated by the President of the United States.
What is now being planned for the United States is not regime change – but the final implementation… and to use the words of the man calling himself Obama, the fundamental transformation of the United States of America that can only be assured by a second presidential term.
That plan to ensure a second Obama term as it has been titled, is to take place “By Any Means Necessary”.
can i remind you guys that July 27th, they vote on the UN gun treaty at their summit crap where they are planning on taking over the world.
and with that, i’m going camping with my family; try and have a nice weekend.
