    Incumbency.

    He gets free media just for going outside. Everything he says or does is covered for free on the 6 o'clock news. Untill Rove and Company decide to buy every TV station in the country and broadcast Mitt ads 24/7, there's no way around the bully pulpit that the president has.

      Theyre sure spending enough to do that.

      Problem is, people tune that out after while.

      Ask meg Whitman.

      Personality.

      Mitt has none - and in the media age, personality and charisma are priceless.

      The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy... the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.

    •  Incumbency and Authenticity (0+ / 0-)

      Compared to the President, Mitt Romney looks like one of those automated holograms that has been programmed to respond to stimulation.  Mitt has no real there, there.
