CHALLENGING THE SENATE majority leader and the sitting President has got to be good for Mr. Romney’s base. The press loves it. But all I see is men acting out and not offering anything remotely close to what’s required for the challenges we all face.
“It’s time for Harry to put up or shut up,” Romney said on Sean Hannity’s radio show. “Harry’s going to have to describe who it is he spoke with because that’s totally and completely wrong. It’s untrue, dishonest and inaccurate. It’s wrong. So I’m looking forward to have Harry reveal his sources and we’ll probably find out it’s the White House.” [The Hill]
I appreciate that Senator Reid started this latest exchange by making accusations he couldn’t back up. However, Romney should be careful, because it’s not Reid who people are doubting, it’s Mitt Romney. Changing the subject and causing a political dust storm isn’t impressive to the tiny sliver of people who are truly undecided, because they’re so fickle they won’t decide until after the debates and late into October.
So, who’s it for?
What it exposes further is that if Mitt Romney really had game, instead of playing the part of a Ronald Reagan wannabe and trying to sound like he’s got it, he’d show Harry Reid out to be the liar he’s calling him by unloading multiple years of tax returns in moral indignation, a Romney specialty.
It’s never been more obvious that he can’t.
