Who is Richard Viguerie? Why, "he is an American conservative figure, pioneer of political direct mail and writer on politics. He is the current chairman of ConservativeHQ.com."
He's also the conservative author of a conservative article at that very same ConservativeHQ titled "Romney Muzzling Paul Ryan – Campaign Sinking." He refers to Team Romney as running a "content-free campaign" that has failed to make contrasts between his conservative policies and the "liberal Democratic agenda."
Content-free. Couldn't have worded it better. Good job, Conservative Richard!
The result is that even when Romney’s running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan, emerges from the content-free fog in which the establishment Republicans and inside-the-Beltway hired guns have enveloped the Romney campaign, the message isn’t driven home with enough force to make a difference. [...]
However, there’s been absolutely no follow-up from Governor Romney.
How nice that he noticed.
Then he compared Ryan to Sarah Palin. Oh yes, he did. He compares her willingness to sell a conservative agenda to voters to Ryan's own proud right-wingitude, but see, then her ideas got pushed aside in favor or John McCain's "establishment" priorities of "standing for nothing."
Governor Romney is on the verge of handing the election to Obama because he and his campaign team are mired in the establishment Republican folly of trying to win by standing for nothing. It didn’t work for President Ford’s 1976 campaign, it didn’t work for President George H.W. Bush’s re-election and it certainly didn’t work for Bob Dole and John McCain.
So Savior Ryan is doing his best to win conservatives over, but so far, big ol' dumbass Willard won't let him run with that. The result? Romney will "lose the election."
Works for me.
