  •  To keep hate alive for eight months (16+ / 0-)

    you need fire like what comes out of Newt's mouth.

    Mitt couldn't keep a marshmellow on fire for eight minutes.

    Mr. Gorbachev, establish an Electoral College!

    •  They wouldn't want Mitt leading that charge (3+ / 0-)

      That's something they will use surrogates for.

      Even Nixon had Spiro Agnew (and his writer William Safire) do the real attacks.

        it. at least some of the time.

        what's he going to do?

        and BTW, while his side is busy stirring up hate, indies, moderates from both parties and sane people across the country think, "really? no thanks."

        works for me.

        Hey Mitt: yeah, go with the hate. that's the ticket.

          The first time he's asked directly he'll give a non-answer answer - "Some people do believe that is true. Next question." - as an example. The next time in some other location it's "I answered that before. Go check that out."

          The media will then ignore both non-answers. No real conflict, and the reporters following the campaigns these days are right out of grad school with no experience in digging down to the real answer.

          An expert political propagandist can come up with better non-answer answers than that.

          What? You expect journalism? Have you watched what we have for journalists these days? The Republican candidates for the Presidential nomination are not the only clowns in the clown trail. The people actually out on the trail following the candidates are inexperienced people who are doing their time in the box before they apply for jobs as TV commentators.

      He's already laid so many eggs, it will take all of his measly skill
      to defend what he's already said publicly and we know he isn't very good at that.  Then, he'll compound his problems by flip flopping on previous flip flops that will, in turn, generate even more questions about his veracity.  "Why did you say this, when you now say that?  - and all this in a contest with the informed inside man who is light years better at speaking and more charming.

      IMO the GOP is happy to have Obama to kick around for another four years, rile up the base, and let  memories of "W's" incompetence fade a bit....Republican focus is on the Senate where they can continue to sabotage any changes.  They figure that 2016 is their year, which is why Jeb and Christy and Daniels et al are not running now or enthusiastically supporting Mitt.
