Karl Rove’s strategy has always been to take your candidate’s weaknesses and attribute them to the opposition, aka projection.
Republicans resort to this because they know they have nothing else to offer, so they feel it necessary to project. It’s all they have when the arguments clearly don’t favor their side. I wrote about John Sununu's blatant use of Rovian tactics here.
Now it's Team Romney's turn. Via Livewire:
Mitt Romney’s campaign communications director Gail Gitcho said on Fox News Friday morning that the attacks on Romney’s tenure at Bain Capital show the Obama campaign is “desperate and unravelling.”
That was today's Quickie. Was it good for you?
And now, because it's election season and we'll be extra busy, we GottaAsk:
We need to raise funds so we don’t have to worry about expenses for the next three months, both for site upkeep and our own mounting bills.
We so appreciate the generosity of those who are able to help out. We also totally understand if you can’t. And our fundraising goal is way, way less than nearly every site we know of, because we know our readers are not wealthy.
To those who are able to help out, please remember, without your donations, we have no Political Carnival.
