Quote of the day:
The wheels are not coming off the Mitt Romney campaign. They came off some time ago. The press is just beginning to notice.
The Romney campaign is skidding along on its axles and scraping its muffler. Soon it will be down to the dog on the roof.
“Romney says his stumbles don’t mean campaign needs a turnaround.” Right.
And could we please put an end to the ridiculous assumption that running a business successfully means someone is qualified to be a politician. The skills sets are quite different. In politics, things are generally done in the open. Politicians have to deal with pressure groups, media, constituencies, and of course do fund-raising. Things aren’t decided autocratically in a closed board room meeting. Instead, decisions are done in public. This requires vastly more skill in dealing with people, media, attacks coming out of nowhere, and living in a fishbowl. And it’s becoming clear that Romney has few if any of those skills.
