Murdoch Re: Mitt's Chances: "Doubtful"

Murdoch hits Romney: He needs a new team

Rupert Murdoch, who last weekend took a Twitter shot at Mitt Romney over his lack of a strong stand on immigration after President Obama's executive action involving some deportations, takes to his feed again for a harder hit:

"Met Romney last week. Tough O Chicago pros will be hard to beat unless he drops old friends from team and hires some real pros. Doubtful," was the tweet from @rupertmurdoch about an hour ago.

1. Yeah, the problem is the 'tough Chicago pros', not the GOP candidate.

Riiiiiiight.

2. Well, crap candidate is problem #1, but I do think he is lacking heavy hitters

on his team also.

No Carville, Rove, Atwater, Rollins, Axelrod type as far as I can tell.

3. I think Romney has pretty decent organization considering he's such a piss poor candidate..

I hope they do change their campaign lineup.. I suspect that will create further turmoil.

4. Murdoch doesn't get that he's one of Romney's main problems

The robber baron right has for years attack two of the Republican parties strongest candidates in John McCain and Mitt Romney. When they eventually won their parties nomination if was only after selling out any principals that actually made them attractive to the largely ignored moderate part of the Republican base. Romney has been a punching bag for places like Fox news for years, McCain even longer. Then the Republican party can't figure out why even their own registered base is so luke warm on them. At the same time McCain and Romney entered the main election having gone so far right from their actual historical base the very people they used to appeal to actually have second thoughts too. If Murdoch was really concerned he might notice that the last two election cycles show the actual majority primary voting Republican base is not represented by the radical extreme right and he should perhaps be more open to the ideas actually represented by the kind of Republican ideas that are winning Republican primaries. Then the Republicans wouldn't have to keep running people that voters can't figure out where they stand on any issue.

Romney actually has a decent pro team working on electing him. Republicans could use less pro help from idiots like Murdoch that have totally ruined the Republican party.
