The national political press corps has been easy on the Romney campaign. Why? They lean right nowadays plus it’s a better story if the election is close but yesterday’s Rubio fest was so ineptly handled that they had to whap Mitt’s minions upside the head.
Romney’s handlers spent the whole day stepping on their collective dicks with the whole Rubio isn’t being vetted for Veep thing. Then the big dick tried to tamp down the story by saying only two people knew who was being seriously vetted. Really? Sounds not only implausible but impossible. Does Mitt expect us to believe that low level lackeys aren’t googling Rubio’s name to see what pops up publicly? It’s what happens when you lie constantly and get away with it: you keep on doing it. Way to go, MSM.
Rubio effectively eliminated himself with the way he handled the whole immigration curveball that was thrown at the GOP by the President. Rubio sounded like a pouty 9 year old when he whined about the White House not calling him about the mini-Dream Act. As if it’s customary for any President to consult with a freshman Senator from the other party; especially one who’s a teanut favorite. Way to go, Marco.
I would, however, like to thank the Romney camp for messing up on the right day so that I could use this post title. Way to go, Romneyites.
