As if Fox owned by a 20-year old wasn’t amusing enough, a top strategist at the Romney campaign admitted today to the NYT that their Final Fantasy approach to campaigning — any position, any time, on any issue, to any audience, with no regard to facts, reality, history, or even the nose on Mitt Romney’s face — might not cut it when people’s livelihoods and issues of war and peace have to be decided.
For months, Mr. Romney’s central strategy has been to attack President Obama‘s leadership and his handling of the economy. Aides have long said they believe the campaign will be a referendum by voters on their dissatisfaction with the president and the direction of the faltering economy.
But Mr. Gillespie said that recent polling done by the campaign suggested that voters were increasingly tuning into the campaign now and were eager to hear more from Mr. Romney about his own plans.
I wonder if Scott Brown, who has followed a very similar model of content-free campaigning — in part because he doesn’t have much of anything to point to as accomplishments for Massachusetts during his time in office — will try to change course along similar lines.
