By Bifford Caulfied -- Republicans are getting a little nervous about Romney -- or so the pundits and pollsters say. They know what he's against -- but they want him to tell them what he is for.
Maybe I can help you guys out a little on this. We all do know what Romney is against. He's against whatever President Obama is for -- and anything he has done, is now doing,
to do at anytime in the future -- and has said so. Anything and everything. What is he for?
He is for not
saying anything specific enough about what he is for
-- such that somebody somewhere -- anywhere -- might not agree with him. And if they don't agree with him, they might decide not to vote for him. And Romney is afraid to lose one potential vote -- even if is because he speaks up for his principles.
In other words, Romney's political strategy and philosophy is that if you hide under your "invisibility cloak" no one can see what you stand for -- and they can't get a bead on you to take a pot shot at you.
Come on, Mitt. Politics and running for President of the United States is a "big boys" game. You can't dodge and weave, cower and hide, dissemble and equivocate all the way to November elections -- and then ascend to the presidency -- by magic. No, Mitt. Americans pay better attention than you think -- and they're smarter than you think -- and I suspect -- smarter than you are. Sorry. I'm just saying.
