The piling on continues

Mitt Romney’s campaign has continued to be harshly attacked by other Republicans, with long time Republican operative Peggy Noonan is calling it a ‘rolling disaster’. In fact, his campaign is perceived as being so bad that within the space of less than six months, sentiment has shifted from the belief that the Republican nominee would win the presidency in a cake-walk, to wonderment that Romney is not winning, to how it is that Obama is not completely running away with the election.

How painful must it be for Mitt Romney to have even Herman Cain, Herman Cain, claim that if he had become the Republican nominee, he would be leading in the polls by now because, as he says, “The reason is quite simple: I have some depth to my ideas.”

Yes, indeedy. Who could forget the depth of Cain’s famous ‘9-9-9’ tax plan which may have had its origins in a video game SimCity? Who could doubt it when Cain revealed the depth of his thinking when asked about Libya?

When Cain, who ran what has to be one of the craziest campaigns to ever gain serious traction, starts dissing the gravitas of your campaign, that has got to hurt.

    I’m beginning to think that the comment that was applied to General Henry Halleck during the Civil War may be applicable to Romney. A vast emptiness surrounded by an education.

    I wish I could remember where I read that. A Google search turns up three hits, all to comments I have made. It should be pointed out that Halleck’s nickname was “Old Brains” because he was probably the best educated of all the general officers on both sides in the Civil War.

    After the battle the wild pigs emerged from the woods and started feeding on the dead, and the almost dead.
