The Romney Campaign is on the Brink of a Monumental Implosion

When a campaign starts calling people names, you know things have gotten bad. When the candidate himself starts calling people names, things have gone to desperation.

When The Obama Campaign first called out that Romney had an inconsistency in his tenure at Baine, the Romney campaign responded by calling Obama a liar.

When Romney was booed at the NAACP, he himself said called them freeloaders when he said they wanted free stuff.

The reference of freeloaders to the NAACP speech was a new low, but a continuing trend from when a wealthy Romney donor at Romney's Hamptons fund raiser said common people don't understand.

And now when members of his own party question the direction of his campaign over concerns about Bain and the lack of a strategy or plan by Romney and his campaign, he calls them bedwetters.

But the real tell is in the fact that Romney's campaign is now saying the Obama campaign is unravelling and desperate. Tactic 101 from the Rovian handbook says project onto your opponent exactly your own misgivings. And that is exactly what Romney is doing now. And by projecting this onto the Obama team, they are shouting out plain as day precisely what they are doing: unravelling.

Today Romney is scrambling to do damage control by leaking rumors about his VP choice and setting up interviews with ABC, CBS and NBC. Believe it that he is forced to do this. He has no choice. If his campaign were going well, there is no way he would choose to do interviews with the Big Three on a Friday in the middle of summer.

Yep, you can absolutely see the stress fractures forming from the incredible pressure on the Romney campaign. They are heading for a political equivalent of a quantum singularity that could lead to some unprecedented events in a presidential campaign. They've already passed the event horizon, and they just don't realize yet that their entering spaghettification because time has slowed down so much they can't perceive it.

It is not beyond Republicans to say that Willard left Bain in 1998, it was some other Mitt Romney who stayed at Bain.

If the Fox channel flogs this hard enough, their viewers will believe it.

I agree with your assessment, except I think that they are aware of their horrible situation. I think that they also think they can get over this. Unfortunately for the GOP, Obama's administration is as scandal free as any in a long time.

14. The Romney campaign will proceed as if none of this matters.

They have exhibited a total disregard for the truth from the start, so they will not acknowledge how the truth of what you describe hurts them.

And the sad fact is, it won't hurt them much unless it becomes a consistent narrative in the mainstream media.

The important thing is for our pundits and for Obama to keep hammering away at how Bain is Romney's bane instead of his asset, to the extent it can't be completely ignored ... and this may be enough to swing the swing voters.

85. The political damage this can do to them matters vey much

But the truth of the matter is entirely besides the point to them; they have no shame. Their electoral strategy is to persuade voters to totally dismiss it as politically motivated attacks with no substance.

Like I said, our strategy should be to keep hammering away so they can't ignore it. Given the Romney campaign's recent response, I'd say that strategy is having an effect.

87. I see. Agreed. But I think their strategy is doomed, given the GOP's response yesterday

when 2 or 3 ranking members told interviewers he needs to release his tax returns. They're already running (away from him) for their lives.

There's no doubt we will continue hammering away. Reid's statement in the senate yesterday, that Romney paid no taxes in prior years, is perfect bait.

A just released pic taken 2 years ago of Obama holding up Romney's book, "No Apologies," and a book by Rove, with his trademark mischievous grin into the camera, is too perfect for the moment to be an accident. It totally undermines Romney's peevish demand

The biggest mistake a person can make is to think they can automatically repeat a successful formula. Shannon O'Brien tried to repeat Kennedy's success against Romney, but Romney learned from his failure and was ready to counter the attacks. Unfortunately for him, in countering those attacks he created a web of lies and contradictions with a paper trail.

Fast forward a decade, and Romney thought he could repeat his successful formula, and continue the claim of no involvement with Bain when outsourcing took place. He probably thought he had it made when Obama's campaign started that charge. Little did he realize that falsifying documents to the SEC is a felony, and that Obama would not be above pointing out that tiny fact. Now he's tangled in his own web of lies. Too bad. So sad.

And Welcome to DU, docgee!

This may be one of those "eaten by ants" type things. Once the questions start - OY. Just OY.

Anyone old enough to remember the grilling of Geraldine Ferraro over her family finances (mainly her husband's) when she was Walter Mondale's VP? She held an extensive, and intense live press conference for two solid hours with all the sharks in the press pool. Took EVERY question, no matter how trivial or stupid it was, until the last of the many sharks ran out of questions. And THAT put it to rest. As long as shitty mitty (or would that be shifty mitty?) tries to withhold things, it looks more and more suspicious - like he's hiding something. And the more he balks, the more questions will come and suspicions will grow and expand.

Let it! Let the games begin.

41. Romney's already crossed the event horizen

Love the black hole analogy! So true! There is no force in nature powerful enough to extract itself from the gravity pull of a black hole once it has passed the event horizon. Romney is getting sucked into the vortex, he's going down he's getting stretched real thin -- as pointed out by berni_mccoy. Name-calling only happens when the person doing it feels backed into a corner, trapped and is powerless to respond -- the name-calling is like the final FU, the last act of defiance. Let's hope that it isn't just an illusion, but the real thing.

If any of this is true, it would seem to me that there is a very good chance that he would not be nominated. Who would come riding to the rescue? Jeb Bush?

43. Here is the song Romney is probably singing right now

This is the first verse and refrain to an original (rock) song I wrote and recorded called "Into The Black Hole". I imagine this is a good theme song for Romney to be singing right now:

I've gone so many light years through space
Not sure how far left to go
Not sure where this voyage ends
Guess when I get there I'll know
How I got here is a story
One that might never be told
I'm taking my story with me
Right into that big black hole
Day by day I'm getting closer
On a straight line no power can bend
Black hole is sucking me inward
On a one way trip straight to the end!
I've already passed the event horizon
I'm heading straight into the deep unknown
Time and space warp around me
I'm feeling streched out and so alone
Wish I could go back and do it over
Wish I could hang on to the things I love
Ain't no way!
I'm past the edge, I'm going in!

44. berni, this is a very good analysis. Also, notice who they are suddenly flogging for VP...CONDI!

They likely will not pick her because she's said NO six ways to Sunday already, but they throw her name out there like meat to a pack of dogs, hoping, hoping, hoping like hell that the media will grab that juicy, meat laden bone and run off to do feature/speculation stories on her (and of course, in so doing, they'd forget about all the other, far more interesting, stuff--gee, that didn't work too well, did it?).

And why the "black" "woman?" Well, he just came off a major asswhipped booing at the NAACP, and he wants to suggest that he's willing to "out-minority" the Dems.

Condi may be a Bush slobberer, but she didn't move up in the world by being a total idiot. I'll bet she's got her track shoes on, the better to run like hell from Mittsy. Being the first black Republican woman on the ballot for VP is a pale historical footnote--she's already made her mark, for good or ill (and we lean towards the latter) on history--why cheapen it by hitching one's wagon to a loser?

57. All Republicans call Democrats nasty names.

They have no ideas, which is why they resort to name-calling.

70. Telling is the fact that he did the Big Three . . . usually, he's only on Faux or CNBC.

In other words, the two Republican Safe Havens.

This is damage control times 2,000. He cannot get out of it and the fact that he's continuing not to own up to "The Missing Years", but instead brazenly demanding an apology from a President that really has nothing to do with Mitt's actions, renders him even more desperate and pathetic with each day.

75. It's great, but it's also potentially dangerous.

They can still pick someone else to run against Obama. It would be hard, but they could do it.

by the depth of utter stupidity that has him in a close race with Obama.

The corporate media has a vested interest in keeping the appearance of a close race.

86. Perhaps, but please don't count your chickens. . .

before they're hatched.

There are still too many people in the US who will vote for Romney, if for no other reason than that he is white and running against the "scary black socialist" Obama.

88. He's Gonna Take The Whole Repub Party With Him, It's The Type of Situation that Can Lead to A Once

in a generation type landslide/wave election.

You are right, it's the perfect shit storm shaping up, and if Obama keeps up the pressure, and he's not stupid, so he will, there ain't much Mittens will be able to do to stop the impending collapse of the whole thing.

Obama's gonna completely destroy Mitt AND the Repub party this election. It's shaping up quite nicely.
