Let's take Mitt's recent world tour:
Liberals in the media are afraid of Romney, so much so they will criticize his every move or equate it to shadowing Obama.
The WSJ has a good OpEd today regarding Mitt's tour from London to Israel to Poland.
The Washington Post and other sources consider the fact that he dare announce a hint of foreign policy initiative, a threat and an insult.
All the press was whinin' and buzzin' when Mitt went to Israel (something Barak Hussein Obama will not do). Mitt showed he had a solid grasp by declaring Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel. It is, but since the US Embassy is in Tel Aviv, the libs went into a fit declaring this a gaff.
Or when Mitt went to London to see the Olympics, he opined that the amount of security was distressing. Was that a gaff?
Poland, Lech Walesa gave Mitt praise, and Mitt rightly praised Poland for their economic fortitude and small government approach.
Every liberal writer, reporter and blogger simultaneously succumbed to the vapors. I dared not watch MSLSD or the other "Nut-Works". All one has to do is Google the News and put Romney in the search subject with a range of one week.
You will see that the election is not based on the Republican defeating the Democrat Incumbent on ideology or statesmanship.
In the USA, you don't campaign against the democrat, you campaign against media instilled populism.The media however has a difficult time dictating foreign affairs to the populous. However the old standards will be trotted-out.
"Don't insult the Palestinians"
"Obama did it first"
"That's the same position as Obama's"
"Israel is an Apartheid State"
"The Sanctions are Working"
This election could be a referendum on Media Instilled Populism. I hope this doesn't cause Lawrence O'Donnell or Maddow to suffer an aneurysm. They have become the standard bearers of a collapsing regime: not necessarily the current administration, but the Media's arthritic grip on popular opinion.
Ok, I just want to add a link to Sultan Knish Blog. He expounds on what Romney accomplished with his rhetoric.
