Opinion of James, Editor of 'Obama in the White House' Blog
Being the Republican candidate for Romney must be like walking on pins and needles. He has to be extremely careful on what he says, but he must get in the habbit of telling the truth. Sometimes the truth hurts, but I see no way that he will gain a number of voters that he can win the election with unless he decides to show conservative Republicans that now grudgingly support him because now he is their only candidate. Even the tea party goers need to really build a relationship with Romney, and he still doesn't have it. Without them, in my opinion there really is no posibillity that he can win the election. The tea party can make or break the election this year for the Republicans. Romney is trying to please the hard right wing Republicans, but at the same time he needs to bend a little to the left and be a little more honest with his thoughts that he puts out, because there still is a great deal of mistrust from the Tea party candidates, and others who still are on the fence to really support him. Romney is not the most ideal candidate that the Republicans have this year, but now the party is stuck with him. Now it's just a matter of time to see what happens in the debates with President Obama. What Romney doesn't realize is that Obama knows that Romney has been watching all the dirty laundry discovered by other Republican candidates like Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. What goes around, comes around. President Obama will use that SuperPac money when the time comes to skillfully disect Mitt Romney, and isolate him from the Tea Party including the woman and black voters. Most likely all that will be left will be the 1%'ers that will always back him, no matter what. I'm expecting not to see such a close election that others are predicting. I also believe that the margin of victory will even be greater this year, more so than when John McCain ran against Obama in 2008.
