#rsrh QotD, You Ain’t So Tough, Barack Obama Edition.

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.

Game on.

    So they have 350 paid people for their social media crew?
    How many of them continue that work when they go home?
    How many people were paid for their work in getting out the Obama Eats Dogs story? I can only think of one — Treacher.

  • Aruges says:

    350 people seems like an awful lot for that task… what do they do all day… make sock puppet or moby posts on websites/twitter feeds?

    This, as well as panicked wapo skewed polls–I sense a Disturbance in The Force.

    Years ago, I worked at a place where one of our Ethernet product was having issues with multicast traffic. The testers had to play Doom when they tested the product. Pretended it was work, though.

  • AZR says:

    Doom IS work.
