Loyal Republicans must be apoplectic at the dismal performance of their candidate. Week after week of gaffs, boos boos, misstatements and awkward moments have kept the narrative on Romney as poor-little-rich boy and away from where he wants the conversation to go, which is the dismal state of the economy and the President's responsibility for it. In a breathtaking 7 days he managed to piss off almost the all the Brits, all the Palestinians, and half the Poles.
People are not crazy for this President. Even I, who am, as you know, pretty loyal, am not crazy for him. The biggest prize in politics is ripe for taking. Still, Romney can't seem to get out of his own way. As the Chicago boys continue their campaign of painting the challenger as Scrooge reincarnate, his famous caution may come back to haunt him.
