Other than everything?
It’s a theme I’ve been harping on since the beginning of time, or at least the beginning of this campaign season. Not being someone else is not a reason to vote for you.
Oh, we’ll vote for you if the only someone else is Obama, but we will not be enough.
This sort of stuff doesn’t help, either, cause we ain’t stuped:
“Four years ago we won all three of three of those states [Michigan, Utah and Massachusetts]. Is any one of them a must-win for Mitt Romney? No,” [Romney senior advisor Eric] Fehrnstrom said.
“I think the must-do for any candidate running for president is achieving the 1,145 delegates. That’s what’s going to secure the nomination, and it’s a long process and as of right now we have a nearly three to one lead over our closest rival in terms of delegates,” he added.
It feeds a narrative shared by conservatives and liberals alike that there is no there there, which will be devastating in the general election:
In short, hiding behind that Mitt Romney mask is (yikes) another Mitt Romney mask.
Change course, right the ship, do something other than what you have been doing.
