Disaster In Boston
— LauraW

David Axelrod has been dispatched to Boston to deliver a press conference at the State House. This is not just an ordinary campaign launch; it is calculated as a symbolic blow against Romney right in his former stomping grounds.

Naturally, the lefty base in a blue city in a blue state have assembled in droves to welcome Mr. Axelrod.

Not so much.

Romney supporters have swarmed the State House, to the chagrin of the Obama staffers and the detriment of any photo-op Axelrod may have wanted to create.

For pic after pic of Romney supporters ruining the day for Obama's campaign staff, see Ryan Williams' twitter feed this morning.

Ryan Williams ‏@RyanGOP

.@DavidAxelrod forced to walk through the crowd of Obama Isn't Working protesters to get to the podium.

Crushed. This moment, it is lost to them.

Tipped from Slublog, who remarks that this "...makes me feel a bit...optimistic about the Romney campaign's organizational skills..."

Oh, my yes.

11 And that Fenway boo-fest was spontaneous ... not coordinated by the campaign at all.

Obama really doesn't play well here. Remember his inability to drag Marcia Marsha Martha Coakley over the goal line against Scott Brown and the popularity of the "Miss Me Yet?" GWB shirts on Martha's Vineyard every summer.

45 Anybody who's watched Romney's 2008 and 2012 campaigns should have realized by now that he and his campaign have some rather effectively sharp elbows, when they care to deploy them.

This is good.  They will need them.  This is going to get really, really ugly before November.

52 I'm getting way too optimistic about this, and that's not usually in my basic nature.  It's a little unsettling.  But, yes, this campaign is bringing their A game right now and it's a hell of a lot of fun to watch.

Somewhat related note - I'm hoping Walker sends a big statement, because I know this campaign has the good sense to use it well.  First, to use it to strengthen their case to any persuadable midwest working class voters.  Second, and the part I'll enjoy most, to deflate the non persuadable hardcore union types with a steady stream of not-so-subtle reminders that Obama didn't lift a finger to help Barrett.

They assume they won in 2008 because of their strategy and now plan to apply that exact same strategy in 2012.

When formulating their 2012 plan, they  ignored external factors that lead to the victory in 2008. The economic collapse, a massive financial advantage, outside help via the media and celebrities, no record to defend, etc etc.

 

Romney on the otherhand learned from his 2008 primary loss and learned from McCain's failed 2008 primary run.

He's been preparing for this for 5 years. I applaud his campaign thus far. It's been great.

I too, was definitely on the "not a huge fan of Mitt" wagon, but I have to say that he is proving to be an entertaining opponent for Obama, every single "weird" thing they try to trot out for Romney ends up spinning back against Obama because Obama has done worse stuff. It's like Romney's campaign folks read, dissected, underlined, and highlighted, Obama's stupid books and are ready for any attack.

 

 

Plus, the use of social media by conservatives this election cycle is a thing of beauty. It was supposedly the "cool, edgy, hip" thing for the Obama campaign in 2008, so they should be even better at it by now, but they flounder all the time. As Nelson says "Ha Ha"

I think McRINO had the MFM eating out of his nutsack up until he got the nomination because he's always been a fave of those lazy cocksuckers just because he gives them so many quotes, usually against conservatives for a double bonus, that they can sit on their dead asses and get hammered with free booze.  Whether it was true or not, Willard got pegged as being a flip-flopper probably because he was so shocked at the dumbass positions that McAmnesty took for a Republican that it confused him.  Willard of the Latter Days worried me early in the primaries by seeming like he could be knocked off his stride by planted jizzmops but whatever apprehensions I had have been more than compensated for by the dumbfucks in team JEF.

171 Accused hockey mom madam Anna Gristina will make an emotional bid for bail tomorrow after learning that her 9-year-old son has a heart condition. Gristina has been locked up on Rikers Island since her arrest on Feb. 22, unable to post a $2 million bond. Defense lawyer Norm Pattis said he’ll ask Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan to lower bail, because doctors have found that Gristina’s son Nick has a “cardiac anomaly.” It’s not life threatening, but Gristina believes stress of her case is hurting Nick. “I should be with my little guy,” she said. Gristina’s husband Kelvin has history of heart problems in his family. Nick visited his mom, for the first time, in jail on Mothers Day. Gristina called the visit “heartbreaking,” but admired Nick’s courage. An appeals court judge was slated to hear arguments on bail reduction next week, but Pattis has filed an emergency application to Merchan. ???I have no dog in this case, but shit, murders get out on bail easier and quicker than this madam?

175 Greg thinks that conservatives are hateful, all the while lying about them and implying they are violent and prone to discrimination. Later on, he congratulates people in his dormroom for vandalizing conservative property, screaming at minorities for daring to think differently than he does, and whacks off to a copy of Das Kapital. And he does this without any self-awareness. Leftists are incapable of perceiving facts - they believe that keeping minorities segregated and indoctrinated to hate is good, while demanding that everyone be equal before the law is "racist". All Leftists are palette-swapped nazis, and none of them are loyal Americans. They're domestic enemies of the Constitution that don't know how to even spell "Constitution".

202 One thing I have noticed about Romney from the primaries until now.

Mitt is used to being in charge.  He is used to being #1.  In the primaries he wasn't #1 and it took him off his game.  Contrary to how Newt succeeds when behind and fails when ahead, Romney struggles when behind but is at his best with a lead.

More than anything, the Republican base wants to see Romney wipe that arrogant smirk off Obama's face.  If we keep seeing stuff like this, the enthusiasm from the base will go off the charts.

205 It's not that the Romney campaign is great, it's that too many people continue to overestimate Obama and his cronies.

They are dogshit and they also were. The only difference between now and 2008 is that there is a reality to compare to the image.

With the correct approach?  I think EVERY State is in play this year....

 

Even here in California, if the Repub party had a clue here, they could have a chance.

 

You run against the DEM Machine... not the individual... you show how Dem leadership has taken this State from an economic powerhouse, to a declining economy.... you talk Energy, and Taxes, and spending...

 

And then you have a commercial, of an idiot Father, worrying over the family bills, and son comes in whining and crying, so Dad buys him a Train which they can't afford... putting it on the already over limit Credit Card...

209 @167 - I've said for weeks now that if the contest looks to be close Romney will go conservative on his VP choice. 

If it looks like a blowout either way then you could expect a more aggressive choice.

And right now momentum is moving in Romney's direction, he can afford to wait as long as possible before any kind of choice or announcement.

He'll win WI, NV, IA, and NH, as well as OH, VA, FL, IN, and NC

218 Reports have surfaced that President Barack Obama is very loyal to his barber. The President is a man of the common people, the report tells its listeners. He hangs out with regular folks, like his barber for example. The President has been using the same Chicago based barber, who goes by the name Zariff, for the past 17 years. According to German Public Radio, the President flies Zariff from Chicago to DC for a trim every two weeks. The president allegedly personally funds these trips. President Obama obviously also does not care much about the massive carbon footprint his haircuts are leaving on our planet which, we are told, is tipping precariously. The German NDR reporter says: ‘The barber never says a word about what they discuss. Perhaps that’s also a reason why Obama feels comfortable being around him. Otherwise he would not fly his barber in from Chicago to Washington every ten to 14 days.’ What is it with democrats and their hair?

233 From the NYSlimes article:

The event was supposed to have been a secret. The campaign did not announce Mr. AxelrodÂ’s appearance in Mr. RomneyÂ’s hometown until early Thursday morning, although word of it leaked out on Twitter late Wednesday.

That implies that this was set up and executed between the time it was leaked last night and Axelrod's speech this morning.  Given the presence of pre-printed signs, it's unlikely that this was a purely spontaneous outcome.

And that was their basic rational in 2008, only it was BOOOSH and McCain is BOOOSH. Which, to me, says that they always sucked.

I guess I just go back to the simple equation that if you are successful it's obvious and you don't really need to talk about much else. Any opposition campaign is basically irrelevant to the campaign of a successful incumbent.

Axelrod tried mostly in vain on Thursday to level Mr. ObamaÂ’s latest broadside on Mr. RomneyÂ’s record as governor of the state.

Instead, he was booed, heckled and chanted down by supporters of Mr. Romney who refused to let up even for a moment as Mr. Axelrod and Democratic state lawmakers sought to make their case. With cameras rolling, the Republican hecklers yelled “We Want Mitt!” and “Broken Record!” and held signs that said “Go Back to Chicago!”

NBC reporting that Romney campaign maintained secrecy on visit to Solyndra today, meanwhile Obama campaign wanted Axelrod's presser to be secret, but failed. 

 

Heh.

291 "Only President Obama, who has failed to meet his own goal of 6% unemployment, would have the audacity to attack Mitt Romney's record of creating jobs. We're happy to compare the 4.7% unemployment rate Mitt Romney achieved in Massachusetts to President Obama's weak record any day."  http://tinyurl.com/72ex4ah

292 Romney is a man who LEARNS from past experience. That's what it took to build Bain. He has always been more READY than any candidate we could have run in this cycle. No way would a Santorum, Gingrich or Perry would have been this quick on the trigger.

293 I knew I had heard that there were extenuating circumstances with romney:

""he took office in the midst of a recession and presided over a reversal in the state's fortunes," says Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul. "As governor he confronted an economy very similar to Obama's economy: high unemployment and no job creation. However, under his leadership and economic reforms, the Massachusetts unemployment rate went from 5.6 percent to 4.7 percent, and the state had a positive record of nearly 50,000 new jobs created." ... [He] faced such a hostile legislature that out of the over 800 line-item vetoes he made, the legislature overrode more than 700."   http://tinyurl.com/72ex4ah

Now that's an interesting picture Andrea Saul painted, it makes you think of the president and, in similar circumstances.

294 Surprised in retrospect Senator McCain, a former fighter pilot, didn't apply it in 2008. He wasn't very good at it, he was positioning himself in politics before he even joined up. Being a fighter pilot was secondary to his career in politics - even in his 20's. Having your warfighting skills being in second place to dotting all the I's and crossing all the "T's" for political office results in a sub-par officer.

295 @ 218. It's not democrats and their hair. It's black men and their barber.

296 >>>Didn't Romney's squad run Scott Brown's winning campaign last time, from behind the scenes?

Pretty much, yes.  In fact, Romney's closest advisor (Eric Ferhnstrom, he of the infamous "etch-a-sketch" gaffe) is still working with Brown, running his reelection campaign.  Fehrnstrom and his guys were the folks behind Brown's 2010 campaign as well, particularly the legendarily good ads.

297 This wouldn't have happened if Axelrod had disclosed that he's 1/32 Indian. Massachussetsians love that shit.

298 Obama is a stuttering clusterf*ck of a miserable failure.

299 So Romney is willing to fight them using their own methods? 

OUTFUCKINGSTANDING!

301 Damn. Wish I'd known. I'd have called in sick and joined in. That would'a been sweet!
