Since the mere sight of Mitt makes us all retch, his campaign has decided that they need to shove us even more of his smug, smirking little face in our faces.
From “Romney rescue plan: More Mitt,” Mike Allen and Jim VandeHei, Politico:
“After taking a beating for comments he privately wishes he never made and from conservative critics he wishes he could muzzle, Mitt Romney and his campaign are settling on a rescue plan to show more of him — in ads, speeches and campaign appearances. A big focus, according to campaign officials, will be on Romney talking a lot more about how his ideas will help regular Americans who remain deeply suspicious of him.
“The aim: Switch the emphasis from Washington policies to personal pocketbooks. Look for a heavy emphasis on jobs and specific ways to cut government spending.
“‘He has to own his message for people, especially women, to buy the messenger,’ one top adviser said.” Emphasis added.
Boston, y’all should just fuhgeddaboudit and go enjoy Indian summer on the Cape. People are never going to buy your messenger, especially women.
Actually, I do want to see that smug, smirking face — the night of November 6 when he concedes.
