Romney "Playing Not To Lose" Strategy, But Is It Enough?
Even Rupert Murdoch is beginning to notice.

It was easy for Obama to just be the "I'm not Bush" in 2008. He was an empty vessel where people poured out their hopes and dreams.
Romney too is an "empty vessel" but with the opposite effect. Instead of "Hope and Change" it's "Fear and Distrust" --especially for conservatives.
Here's an advice for Romney: He can start by helping Governor Rick Scott against the Obama DOJ's lawsuit on the purging non-citizens off the Florida voter rolls. Nationalize it. Force Obama to respond to his DOJ lawsuit and the Voter ID laws. Does Obama really believe what Eric Holder and Pelosi said about "Voter ID" = "voter suppression"?
Don't worry about pissing off the monolithic black vote, you'll never get them anyway. But Voter ID laws are popular to the rest of the sane public, especially independents. This isn't a "distraction" from the economy, Mittens.
