Response to Martin Eden (Reply #85)

Sat Jul 14, 2012, 11:43 AM

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.
