Blair, I disagree with you in part. Team Romney sat back for months while team Obama bashed him mercilessly with lies and fabrications. Romney committed the great sin of allowing his opponent to define him, and he spent the run-up to the election trying to undo the damage instead of presenting himself and explaining the issues. Can't play politics on defense. While I loathe Axelrod and Pluthe, I must give them credit for how they ran their campaign.
