MUST READ: The blunder years
From the Australian newspaper The Age:
One problem for Romney's campaign is that, politically speaking, their plastic, anxious, arrogant candidate does nothing well. The other problem for the campaign staff is, well, the campaign staff. Led by Stuart Stevens, an extreme sports guru who has appointed himself speechwriter, strategist and ad producer, their ineptitude has prompted open warfare, with major conservative commentators such as Peggy Noonan saying that the Republican Party needs to ''step in''.
Brilliant critique of Romney and his campaign, from the early paragraphs about all the earlier gaffes ("Mitt is a man who has made an art of the brain-fart"), to the great analysis of how much worse "47gate" is, to the final devastating comment on Romney's campaign "skills" ("Mitt Romney, this week in Ohio, will find the one couple whose votes can swing the election, and remark on how ugly their children are").
But since this is an Australian paper, we'll need to get the column out via social media to make sure US voters see it.
