Romney’s Overall Obama/MSM Strategy a Smart One

Romney’s team is getting good at managing the MSM.  Take the recent “bullying” story plaguing the airwaves since yesterday:  the Washington Post ran a massive hit-piece on Romney, timed very well with Obama’s gay marriage endorsement;  a similar blitzkrieg approach was used to destroy past candidates.  The Post had to go back to high school in order to find dirt on Romney and even that story is falling apart more and more as time goes on.

Like the dog issue, the “War on Women” nonsense, and the attack on Ann Romney, this bullying ploy is being handled wisely by Romney’s team.  In the past, the left would throw bombs and waited to see what happened.  The truth of the story didn’t matter only that the story ran, stewed for a while, and hopefully left an impression on some undecideds.  Rush often says to liberals the “seriousness of the charge” trumps the “nature of the evidence.”

The Romney team has decided not to play that game.  His team responds fast and effectively.  The story can’t stew — by the time people start hearing about a story, it’s already been refuted.  Must be frustrating if you’re at the Post today.

The MSM’s covering for Obama isn’t working.  The first Rasmussen poll taken after the gay marriage announcement showed Romney leading the President 50-43%.  It’s obviously early, but Romney’s immediate response strategy is good and may end up paying off in the end.

I agree: Romney’s team has been quick to counterpunch on a lot of these “issues.” It’s like the real Attack Watch.

It’s also comforting to see a national Republican election team which is acting like they want to win.
