But beyond that, he keeps getting really lousy advice from folks like Bill Kristol.
"If this election is just about the last four years, that's a muddy verdict. Bush was president during the financial meltdown. The Obama team has turned that around pretty well. The Clinton speech at the convention was very important in that way -- how horrible was it four years ago."You see Bill, idiots like you who want to assume the mantle of "intelligentsia" haven't caught on to what everyday average voters seem to understand pretty clearly. When Romney starts talking about "what he would do," folks immediately recognize it as the very things that got us into this mess in the first place (tax cuts, deregulation, and warmongering). THEY DON'T WANT ANY MORE OF THAT! Until you knuckleheads start to understand that - fixing Romney's dickishness isn't going to help.
"He's got to make it a referendum on the choice of the next four years, and explain what Obama would do over the next four years that would be bad for the country, and what he would do that would be good for the country."
