Peggy Noonan On Romney Campaign: ‘Incompetent Was Polite.’ It’s A ‘Rolling Calamity’
Conservative writer Peggy Noonan says she was being kind to call the Romney campaign “incompetent.”
…she then helpfully provided answers in the form of a numbered list. Some of Romney’s woes: Democrats defined him before he had a chance to define himself; perceptions of the economy are improving; the president had a strong convention, while Romney’s was weak; and Romney has been “reactive,” often needing to assert damage control, but also failing “to force the Obama campaign to react to its proposals and initiatives.”
Oh and: the “47 percent” remark didn’t help.
But all is not lost, Noonan contended. With more than a month between the first debate and the election, there’s “enough time for a healthy spiral to begin.”
