Newt is the Democrats biggest threat


 

Ron Paulians won’t like this because she makes no mention of Paul as a serious candidate but Professor Lynn Vavreck says some really interesting things here.

First, that even after the thousands of dollars and years of campaigning, people still don’t know Romney. He can’t break through.

Second, that Newt is the Democrats biggest threat. Newt is a strategist. Democrats haven’t run against a good strategist since Reagan. As we have seen from the debates so far, Newt has the ability to take what, the Democrats think, is a negative and turn it into not only a positive but a haymaker against the Democratic propaganda machine (MSM). Romney can’t do that, he hasn’t shown the ability to do that so far and there is no indication that he ever will.

While Obama will get softballs, Romney will get fastballs. He will crumble under the attack. He won’t get the same treatment he is getting now, preferential treatment. Democrats will go after his Taxes, go after Bain, go after his subpar record as Governor, will he be able to articulate an answer? Probably not, if his recent flub about his Tax returns is any indication. The Democrats want to face Romney. Only Rom-bot think he has a snowballs chance to beat Obama.

    I believe he(newt) makes them very nervous. also something not being talked about on the right, but I have mentioned previously myself and saw the first ad today was, Romney’s religious affiliation will be considered racist, due to the back history for the LDS church. It will be a problem, no matter how much the church has changed.

      I don’t think LDS is a problem insomuch of the GOP but more from Democrats. Democrats are going to be the ones to hit him with LDS smears, they already were trying to push the meme from the SC exit polls. I forget the exact wording of the question but there was nothing in the question to indicate Mormonism had turned them off, but that’s what the MSM wanted people to think. 1. To push the GOP are all bigots meme and 2 to push Mormons are racists.
      Harry Reid is mormon, Coming from Las Vegas, I grew up and are friends with a lot of Mormons. The only way the Mormon issue is going to hurt Romney, are by Mormons not voting for him, but they won’t vote for the other guy either. Mormons are a close knit group that always help each other out. The one reason why Reid keeps getting elected is because Mormons marginally vote for him because he is Mormon and they don’t vote for the other guy either.

    Newt brings the gun to the gun fight, so to speak.

    Oblahblah brings a cadre of teleprompters to a debate for 180 degree coverage. Newt brings a bottle of water.

    And Romney brings a hairdo and a fabulous veneer to the debate stage, which when scratched, reveals more veneer.
