What better way than to play a ‘genuine underdog’ to the incumbent? That is what Mitt Romney is doing here. Look at the background photo, how powerful it is to make a case against Obama.
I am not in a position to follow all nuances of Republican Primary race. But few things are very clear:
1. You are not going to get ‘constructive criticism of Obama’ from Mitch McConnells of the world as these Congressional Republicans are too blind folded by their parochial constraints. They would not hesitate to pull down America for their ideological reasons, but hopefully Republican Presidential candidates would start realizing enormity of the task; how to avoid yet another lost decade for America.
2. The only worth watching contenders are Romney, Bachmann and Pawlenty in that order where the odor of Pawlenty reaches to unacceptable levels. Bachmann is fun to watch, especially for creative ways by which she is trying to navigate the primary minefield.
3. But the real positive is Romney. He is doing good. He would not yet get my vote, but the guy is campaigning as like a real leader. Regardless of end result in November 2012 (abhi Delhi bahot door hai in Hindi, meaning - 'it is too early to predict'), if Romney stays on this course; it will be substantially positive contribution to American Political Discourse.
