Nameless Romney guy, on how they keep managing to throw Team Obama off of its stride:
One of Romney’s communication strategists says that while he’s not counting chickens before they’ve hatched, he’s pleasantly surprised by how flatfooted the Obama camp has proven on these breaking stories. “They have 700 people in Chicago — 50 percent of their staff is social media,” the strategist says. “I’m afraid to be happy about it, because they can’t be this weak. . . . I wonder if some of this comes from the attitude: ‘How dare anyone question our commitment to women’s issues? We own women’s issues; no one can ever outmaneuver us on this.’ That kind of attitude invites you to get embarrassed.”
It may be even simpler than that: Team Obama has apparently never learned the cosmic truth embedded in Rocky IV. Or at least, never thought that it might apply to them.
