The other day, some Obamunist reporter with the Washington Post found what he thought could be turned into a "smoking gun" from Romney's childhood. It seems Romney may have engaged in some totally irrelevant high school prank. Of course, the MSM jumped right on it. But the thing that bothered me was, (and i'm not a Romney fan) Romney came right out and apologized for it. This, IMO, is a clear sign of weakness. And, it also shows that the Romney camp, like the rest of the Republican Party and many Conservatives, still don't get it. One of the oldest and most effective tactics used by the Left is to put their opponents on the defensive every chance they get, whether founded or not. And, since Romney does not have the tenacity and sharp claws that Gingrich or Ron Paul has, this kind of attack will not only continue, but greatly increase, since they now see how well it worked. It's like showing an aggressive dog that you are afraid of him. He's gonna bite you!
In the court of public opinion, (a favorite playground of the Left ) defending yourself, even from bizarre and totally unfounded allegations, always makes you look guilty of something, else why would you be defending your self. That's how average people think, and the Leftists have become masters at using this ploy. If it works, again, we can look "forward" to four more years of radical Obamunism. Times ten!
