Are Mitt’s money men putting away the checkbooks?

From Fox Business News:

The Romney campaign is experiencing what some officials believe could be the beginning of a mass exodus of big money donors diverting their cash away from the Republican presidential hopeful and toward Republican candidates for the House and Senate races more likely to win in November, the FOX Business Network has learned.

The trend isn’t at the acute stage, at least not yet, said one person with direct knowledge of the matter. This person, a major player in Romney’s New York fundraising circles, confirmed to FOX Business that a few New York donors have backed away from financial commitments to the Romney campaign and instead said they will spend their money to help the Republicans hold on to the House of Representatives, and pick up seats in the Senate.

But another person with direct knowledge of the matter says the trend, though nascent, is more geographically broad based, and reflects an increasing degree of anxiety both with what they believe is the tentative nature of the Romney campaign, and recent poll numbers that show President Obama with a lead, particularly in key battleground states, that some Republican contributors are starting to believe is insurmountable.

“This isn’t just a New York trend,” this person said. “It’s beginning to occur all over the place.”

If Romney does well in tomorrow night’s debate, that trend may be stopped dead in its tracks. On the other hand, if he achieves a draw or less, the disenchantment is likely to deepen, with important consequences for fundraising efforts.

A mediocre performance in Denver would also inspire another, more aggressive round of anti-Romney sniping and backstabbing from conservative media and politicians, which has the potential to do a lot more damage to the Romney cause than a withdrawal of financial support. I’ve already been struck by the fact that many conservative pundits and media figures have been even more dismissive of Romney’s chances than have their counterparts on the left. Given the right opening, they seem quite ready to bury him and move on.

Any candidate that would have gotten the nomination was doomed to fail. The current GOP apparatus is set up for failure. They’ve gone so far to the right that any candidate has to step into make-believe land in order to satisfy the base. When they do that, it is harder and harder to move back to the center.

Before we had instant access to each and every speech, a candidate could do base stirring speeches in one area and then pull to the middle in some other area the next day. It’s next to impossible to do that now with cellphone cameras and youtube.

Ok, here’s a rare moment when I come on this forum and slam the republicans. Romney is a fairly weak candidate. He was the best of the bunch that ran this cycle and I think he will be tremendously better than Obama if elected. But he was merely the best of a weak field this cycle.

Worse yet, some of the conservative talk show hosts have been extremely critical of him from the beginning of the primary season. Part of that is because he was a moderate in MA, but I honestly think some of it has to to with his Mormon religion, and that reflects very poorly on them.

Now back to my regularly scheduled democrat bashing.

The evil part of me hopes that Mitt “wins” this debate.

Why?

Because I love the smell of desperate neocon hope in the morning.

Romney cannot win this election.

Obama could lose it.

With a series of missteps and self-inflicted wounds.

But in reality, who is more prone to that?

Mitt Romney’s “47 percent” remarks are still reverberating in the presidential campaign, with a new poll showing that two-thirds of Americans have heard about the comments and a majority of them saying it could affect their vote, Politico reported.

The Pew Research Center poll found that 55 percent had a negative reaction to the remarks and 23 percent had a positive one, with a fifth had no reaction or a neutral reaction.

Only 54 percent of Republicans had a positive reaction. Romney, who is trailing in swing states such as Ohio and Florida, needs independents to win the White House.

But among independents, only 18 percent had a positive reaction to the remarks and 55 percent had a negative one.

As the old saying goes, “It’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks.” What Romney’s doing is classic campaigning. He has not adapted the old technique to fit today’s technology. As a result, he seems way out of touch. Until the GOP moderates the fringe, they are going to get the same results as this election.

Incorrect sir!… Huntsman was a viable candidate who would’ve at this very moment been enjoying a substantial lead, but he was “not conservative enough” for the batshiite crazy “base” because he didn’t etch-a-sketch hisself into a severely conservative candidate. So you all let the one who would’ve (almost certainly) walked away with this thing fade away, and chose the insincere empty suit.

I would agree that Romney has received more negative talk from self-styled conservatives than from the “liberal media”. “It is a vast right wing conspiracy.”

If the “liberal media” is the ogre is is portrayed to be, someone needs to account for the election of Republican moderates such as Eisenhower, Nixon, Reagan, Bush 41 and Bush 43 in light of the poor showing of the moderate Romney.

Romney’s problem is that he knows more about political campaigning than his political staff and demands that they listen to him.

I completely disagree with that. Romney, if elected, would be nothing more than a puppet figure in DC. We have all seen how the Far Right will completely steamroll him if he gets elected. The GOP’s best chance to unseat Obama was Huntsman, but unfortunately he has more sense than to play the “rabid right” character that you have to portray in order to get traction.

If you look at Huntsman’s accomplishments as governor, he has a far more conservative record than Romney, yet he’s also shown that he’s capable of dealing with the Dems without abandoning his conservatism. I think Huntsman would have easily pulled independents and moderates from Obama, but we’ll never know if that’s right or not.

“Reality says otherwise.”

But is it just a reinforcement of their predisposed preference? For instance, I don’t out of the blue go to say Burberry’s website, but when Facebook puts up an ad I will click it. If that ad is for Pepboys, I don’t click it. Are political ads the same? We tune into the ones we want to hear and reinforce our beliefs and ignore those we don’t want to hear or challenge what we want to believe?

How effective are political ads as far as a ROI on either turning out people who may stay home or changing minds?

As for the GOP implosion, Fareed Zakharia had an interesting take on it Sunday. Boiled down, Romney can’t say anything definite because what the base and the lunatic fringe are claiming they’ll do in office has no basis in reality and, given the office, Romney’s “plan” will fly in the face of “all that” if he expects to accomplish anything at all.

Couldn’t you say the same about the Dems? Look at the recent presidential races. I can’t even remember the last time the Dems ran a more centrist candidate than the Republicans did. Maybe Clinton vs Dole, but I would call that one pretty much a tie.

Romney = Moderate
McCain = Moderate
Bush Jr = Socially conservative, Fiscally Moderate
Dole = Moderate
Bush Sr = Moderate
Reagan = conservative (ran twice against liberals just as liberal as he was conservative)

Probably the only moderate on the Dem side in all that time was Clinton on fiscal issues. And he wasn’t really that fiscally moderate until he took a spanking in his first midterm election and had to deal with a Republican congress.

Exactly. Gerrymandering, which both parties do, has helped the Republicans on the Congressional level. They have won a ton of seats and have fooled themselves that the country “really” is majority far right. That is not the case, but gerrymandering districts gives that appearance.

Two things to add to that:

1. Demographics will eventually catch up and surpass any sort of gerrymandering that can be done. Will not take place at the same time because the demographic changes are changing at different rates in each state. Republicans appear to be making more efforts at outreach, which is a good thing. Better late than never, but the inevitable is coming. Hopefully that has an impact as to what you stated: Repubs moving more “Center right” as opposed to so many being “far right”.

2. That appearance could have been a short term gain, but could lead to long term loses if they continue down the same path. Even with the outreach I mentioned, at least in the Congress, there seems to be a push to go further right…….. even knowing what the demographic trends are showing.

The problem with labeling Bush as a fiscal moderate is the fact that he ran Supply-Side Playbook 2000 from the time he settled down in DC. He was no fiscal moderate in the widest stretch of the definition.

To give you an idea of how much the GOP has shifted the political spectrum, righties try to label Obama as far right, yet his signature legislation was

1) A healthcare plan that sold us out to business. He basically put our healthcare system at the mercy of the free market with little to no government control over costs.

2) A stimulus plan that was 1/3 supply side tax cuts.

That’s why I don’t believe hardly any of the labeling that’s applied from the right. Their perspective is flawed because of their outlying positioning.

” At some point, you have to adapt to the changing world or get left behind”

That has not been the GOP strategy. As far as they are concerned, the problem is not the message, it is how the message is being delivered and the people are at fault for not getting it. That is fine with me as it keeps the downward spiral going.

“Huntsman seemed perfectly capable but got no one fired up. He got no traction because he was a weak candidate – not because he wasn’t a capable guy, nor because he was too moderate. If that was a disqualifier, McCain would have never gotten the nomination. And Romney’s credibility among conservatives isn’t great either.”

No… he didn’t excite the batshiite crazies who rule in the primaries, the responses here indicate that he was a very viable and palatable choice for those of us in the middle. When you have a primary season that begins with a buzz about Rick Perry entering the fray, hits it’s stride with Cain, Bachman, and Newt neck in neck, and fizzles out with Mitten’s ultimately outlasting them all… what does that say for your party? Meanwhile, Huntsman refused to play to the crazies and got no traction.

Republican are a negative bunch, it is the glue that keeps them together. The further right you go the darker the brooding, the greater the fears, it is just not in their DNA to be happy. They are always seceding, taking their balls and going home. They have the showmanship of a criminal attorney defending a guilty man where only the lawyer’s theatrics can divert the attention of the jury from the devil he defends to another subject that may confuse the jury so much they forget the facts. Facts are the vampire cross to Republicans, it is the reason they are always unhappy. The facts are all around them, it makes lying harder. It is like be soaking wet from rain and telling your neighbor it is sunny and bright. Oh to be a fly on the wall, to watch a military coo in the land of make believe. To try to figure what lie sunk the ship and who to believe enough to do an autopsy. There may be honor among thieves but there is none among liars.
