With Mitt Romney The Etch a Sketch Never Ends
Thursday, October 25th, 2012
My Dear America:
Well, things are certainly moving fast this week.
Early Sunday Morning long time Liberal Senator and 1972 Democratic Presidential Candidate, George McGovern died. Under normal circumstances it would have been appropriate to have a lot of media coverage regarding McGovern's passing but it happened the day before the last Presidential Debate and got very little coverage. McGovern deserved better than that.
On Monday evening the last Presidential Debate occurred and the fantastically flexible Mitt Romney, unlike his strong anti Obama opinions expressed constantly during the past four plus years, amazingly enough suddenly seemed in almost perfect agreement with President Obama. In addition to Romney presenting himself as an entirely new candidate on foreign policy, almost totally without beefs with the President, he was also a kinder gentler candidate who was clearly looking to present the President as "The Mean Guy."
I actually got a robo call from a Romney group on Tuesday morning having the nerve to point out that the President on Monday night was "picking a fight" with Romney at the debate. These people have some gall presenting Romney as a peacemaker in comparison to the President.
The President and Romney left Monday's Debate with their traveling shoes on and both candidates have been flying from place to place, mainly hotly contested states which may hold the key to their potential victory.
Obama was on the Jay Leno Show last night and certainly handled all of Jay's softball questions well.
Bruce Springsteen made it official this week that he was supporting President Obama by going on tour with his guitar, along with the President. Certainly Romney Campaign officials could not have been surprised by the endorsement of Obama by "The Boss."
Another important Obama endorsement arrived today and that was the endorsement of former Secretary of State, Colin Powell.
Rumor has it, however, that the Romney Campaign may be trying to blunt the Springsteen and Powell endorsements with two last minute endorsements of Romney's own candidacy. The Romney Campaign is reported to be calling these double endorsements the "Two Charlies" endorsements.
The "Two Charlies" who are coming out strongly for Romney are rumored to be Charlie Sheen and Charlie Manson.
Those endorsements, the Romney Campaign is convinced will certainly garner some serious media attention and I believe they are right about that.
