The Romney Campaign is on the Brink of a Monumental Implosion [View all]

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.
