From “Time for an Intervention,” Peggy Noonan, WSJ:
“It’s time to admit the Romney campaign is an incompetent one. It’s not big, it’s not brave, it’s not thoughtfully tackling great issues. It’s always been too small for the moment. All the activists, party supporters and big donors should be pushing for change. People want to focus on who at the top is least constructive and most responsible. Fine, but Mitt Romney is no puppet: He chooses who to listen to. An intervention is in order. ‘Mitt, this isn’t working.’
“Romney needs to get serious here. Or, he can keep typing out his stray thought with Stuart Stevens, who’s sold himself as a kind of mad genius. I get the mad part.
“If you’re gonna lose, lose honorably. If you’re gonna win, do it with meaning.” Italics in original.
Too late. All the GOP’s horses and all the GOP’s men can’t put this Humpty Dumpty back together again. He’s going to lose, but it won’t be honorably.
