What Gingrich, Santorum, etc. got right about Romney

Back in the heat of the primary season, Republican leaders grew very uneasy when Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Rick Perry began to attack Mitt Romney as an out-of-touch rich guy who built his wealth through “vulture capitalism” (Rick Perry’s term) and was hiding something in his taxes. Among other concerns, GOP leaders recognized that if such attacks on Romney worked, they might end up with Gingrich, Santorum or Perry as their nominee.

That was not an outcome they were willing to risk, so they quickly ruled that line of attack out of bounds.

These days, however, they may be reaping the consequences of that decision. The latest CNN poll has Barack Obama pulling out to a seven-point lead over Romney. Ipsos/Reuters also puts the margin at seven, while Fox News puts it at nine. And as Fox notes, the internals are more worrisome still for Romney:

“Obama’s advantage comes largely from increased support among independents, who now pick him over Romney by 11 percentage points. Some 30 percent of independents are undecided. Last month, Obama had a four-point edge among independents, while Romney had the advantage from April through early June….

“The Obama campaign has spent heavily on advertising attacking Romney’s time at Bain Capital and his tax returns. And it appears to be working. Romney’s favorable rating dropped six percentage points since last month and now sits at 46 percent, down from 52 percent in mid-July. At the same time his unfavorable rating went up five points. Romney’s favorable rating has held steady among his party faithful, but it’s down eight percentage points among independents and seven points among Democrats.”

Moreover, Fox notes, Obama outpolls Romney by eight percentage points on the question of which man is more likely to help people achieve the American dream, which constitutes the foundation of the Romney strategy. And the erosion of support isn’t limited to the party’s nominees:

“While Democrats typically hold a slight edge over Republicans nationally in party identification, this attitude shifts based on events and changing sentiment. These days, voters seem to be even more likely to consider themselves Democrats than Republicans. There has been a five-percentage-point Democratic advantage, on average, in Fox News polls this year. In this poll, the Democratic edge is nine points. That may or may not be on the high side, although it is similar to other recent national polls conducted by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal, which put Democrats up 11 percentage points, and the Pew Research Center, with Democrats up by 13 percent.”

(In a humorous aside, only one major polling outfit in the last three weeks — the ever-reliable Rasmussen — has Romney leading, with the former Massachusetts governor up by four. See below.)

It’s still early, of course — the campaign holds a lot of unanticipated twists and turns ahead. But for the moment, the line of attack against Romney that Republican leaders ruled off-limits in the GOP primary seems to be working quite well when employed by Democrats. The party’s decision to protect Romney back in January and February — in effect, Gingrich et al were told not to look the dressage horse in the mouth — meant that he was never forced to develop an explanation or defense against such criticism, and it appears that he has yet to do so to this day.

With voters now forming their early impressions of the GOP nominee, that could prove to have been a major blunder.

The last two pages’ll do it -

Welcome back

“I ASSUME everything tax-wise, since he started running for President five years ago, is perfectly legal.”

I think at this point it’s a win-win for Obama and not for Romney. If something’s in litigation with the IRS Romney will be branded a cheat. If he takes deductions perfectly legal – look at the dressage issue – he’ll be hammered for even using the deductions (loopholes). If everything’s legal and above board, he’ll be hammered for following the law (do you know how LITTLE Romney paid in percentage terms? LESS than a MIDDLE CLASS FAMILY!!! And THAT’S the man you want to be president?!!?).

It seems simple to me. Democrats aren’t pressing this because they HOPE something’s illegal. They press it because they can use whatever happens to their advantage. The added bonus, of course, is it keeps the conversation all about Romney and not about the economy.

When newlyweds Ann and Mitt Romney were living together while attending Brigham Young, things were pretty swell. “We were happy, studying hard,” Romney said in an infamous Boston Globe interview back in 1994 , when Mittens was running for the senate. “Neither one of us had a job, because Mitt had enough of an investment from stock that we could sell off a little at a time,” she explained.

How awesome is that?!? The stock came courtesy of Mitt’s papa, who had invested Mitt’s “birthday money” every year. Ann looks back fondly on this time as a period when she and Mitt were really roughing it. For realz.

Wait a minute. I thought someone claimed that Mitt didn’t have anything from his daddy to live on.

Funny, I was thinking the same thing about *you* on the thread you just linked us back to.

“and not going to answer other peoples’ questions, discuss different topics, etc. etc.”

I didn’t SAY I wasn’t going to answer other people’s questions, boy. Pay attention. :roll:

If you and Shockley/Callahan and Doom are going to DEMAND answers from me like Richards, then I’m not going to answer them. If you DEMAND I reply a certain way, I’m not going to do it. Polite, adult discussion doesn’t consist of DEMANDING that others play by your effing rules and do what you say, and if you don’t like it, you can take a flying leap.

OTOH, if you want to act like an adult and talk politely — which I know for a fact you are capable of — then I will respond in kind. I give what I get, so if you want me to play nice, then start out by playing nice yourself. Be a Richard, and I’ll just deal you some Richard right back.

“We already have people like that (Kamchack, getalife, Joseph, etc.). We don’t need more.”

General Stand Watie named his son Salladin…a considerable number of former Confederate officers went to Turkey following the Wah-uh at the invitation of the Sultan to take charge of various aspects of the modernization of the Ottoman forces… just something to think about in your perusal of history…

Mormons Hijack Dead or Alive Jewish Souls By Bernard I. Kouchel

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (often referred to as the LDS or Mormons) has spent millions of dollars microfilming, indexing and cataloging nearly every document known to man from every country on earth — including millions of Jewish records. Church members are encouraged to find the names of ancestors to baptize by proxy, which they believe gives the dead the opportunity to embrace the faith in the afterlife. They say that those who are dead retain their identity and free will and therefore can either accept or reject the rites performed for them. A hands-on proxy baptism ceremony, called an ordinance, takes place in a Mormon temple, and includes full immersion to wash away sins and commence church membership. It is supposedly performed, commentators say, for people who had believed in Christ, but had not had a chance to be baptized. To be baptized is to publicly acknowledge one’s faith in Christ as Savior and Lord. Originally, the practice was reserved for ancestors of church members, but over the years many other people have been baptized posthumously.

I’m sure you’ve got plenty of links to prove that.

Paul @ 4:25 pm – IT IS CREEPY! and VERY STRANGE!

APOLOGIZING!……….WTF!

They should not be doing it period on any NON-MORMONS anyway!

Maybe we need to keep a better look out for you guys in the cementary!

what other behavior like this, is performed in the MORMON CHURCH? I am sure many of readers do not know.

Just as in his TAXES, MITT REFUSES TO TALK ABOUT THE MORMON CHURCH TOO!

The data is there, Erwin. The earth is warming more than it would absent human activities. You choose to ignore the data. You choose to remain ignorant.

Aaaaaaaaaaand more deflection and bs. What are you, 5? Holding your fingers in your ears saying “la la la la la la la la”?

I’ll take that as “no, you don’t have any links to back it up.” Thanks for playing.

We get young adults knocking on doors around here all the time. If you want to know about the Mormon church, invite them in. Or you could just go to mormon.org

I noticed you ducked the points about it’s only your converted family members who could do that for you. I don’t blame you for ducking it – it takes the wind out of your sails just when you want to keep on blowing.

And for the life of me, I absolutely cannot understand why you do not take up the cause opposing the CREEPY and UNHOLY practice of JEWS in STEALING land from people who’ve lived on it for CENTURIES!!!!!!!……….

Erwin’s cat @ 4:40 pm – OH NOOOO! another ONE! Maybe we should get photos of you guys to hang up at cemetery and funeral home entrances. or sign saying

“NO MORMON BAPTISMS OF OUR DEARLY DEPARTED ALLOWED HERE”

Will MITT, be expanding this belief to the rest of US, if he gets into the WHITEHOUSE?

Paul @ 4:47 pm – Paul, I do not think this is something “BABY JESUS” would approve of it for his followers!

It will very HARD not to think of MITT performing such a service and then SHAKING
ALL OF THOSE HANDS of those SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION GOERS!

I Hope they bring a lot of Hand Sanitizer!
