Libya: Romney's 'Todd Akin moment'?
Exclusive: Alan Keyes says Mitt failed to exploit 'Obama's ideological blindness'
I predict that in the weeks ahead Mitt Romney will again and again run afoul of the reality he is desperate to deny: Obama’s problem is not his competence, but his commitment to an ideology inimical to America’s safety, to America’s prosperity and to the creed that is the essence of America’s identity as a nation.
Romney’s inability to cast the election in terms that focus on Obama’s ideological hostility to America doesn’t arise from some incidental personal quirk or whim. It reflects the globalist anti-nationalism of the “billionaire breakfast” clique whose money power Karl Rove represents. It also reflects the simple fact that, in any effort to defeat Obama on ideological grounds, Mitt Romney will quickly find that he is running against himself. He is haunted by the possibility that Obama will simply point to all the policies, statements and actions Romney was responsible for that implement or smack of the same socialist ideology. Obama will simply ask what vendetta of ambition or prejudice leads Romney and his supporters to find fault with Obama for walking the path Mitt Romney blazed before him.
