The Message Romney Missed

Rep. consultants are stuck in the Middle Ages. They need to show Rep. candidates in front of pix like Lincoln or Eisenhower or Martin Luther King, Jr., Rep. icons. They needed Mitt to come to NJ after Sandy and handout out blankets and sandwiches. 75% of NYorkers are giving obamantion approval for walking on a barrier island after the hurricane and kissing someone who lost her house. You cannot present reasoned, rational arguments to people who FEEL obamster cares about them.

The post mortems on the presidential campaign continue to pour in, the ones on the botched Romney effort the more interesting (and more depressing for those of us who supported him). President Obama was clearly vulnerable, and Mitt Romney clearly positioned to defeat him.

So what went wrong? Let me add my analysis. Three words: Message. Messenger. Messaging.

The messenger was flawed, unwilling to take risks, unprepared for the Obama political wrecking machine, left dazed and confused Election Night.

If inept messaging could be deemed a felony, this campaign was a crime against humanity. I've never seen...
