Question For Mitt Romney

March 7, 2012

This is not the first time, nor the last, that Mitt Romney will be asked what makes it so hard for him to stand up to Rush Limbaugh.

“If you can’t stand up to the most strident voices in your party, how are you  going to stand up to [Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad?” said Axelrod, who  left the White House a year ago to take over the campaign’s messaging  operation.

Returning several times to the topic, Axelrod repeatedly referred to the  radio host as the “de facto head” of the GOP.

It has been pathetic to witness the weak-kneed responses to reporter’s questions by the soon-to-be GOP nominee concerning the outlandish remarks made by Limbaugh.  Smart campaigns would see this as a Sister Souljah moment, and act on it. Conservatives who want to see some spine in their candidate might very well agree that Romney was able to find ‘his voice’.  Women would be somewhat more able to view Romney for more than a partisan fool.

When it comes to how Romney has mis-handled this entire affair it is now apparent he will need several Sister Souljah moments to now make amends.

    He does not get it… He does not understand why $60-100/ month could be important to a woman.. why doesn’t she just pay for it and stop making a fuss.. But Bain Capital is obviously in bed with Rush. that is big bucks. Mitt gets that.
