Did The Romney Campaign Read Rules for Radicals?
Did the Romney campaign read Rules for Radicals and apply them to the RNC Convention? Lost in the discussion of the Clint Eastwood evisceration of the Empty Chair character of Barack Obamawas maybe the most obvious explanation for why the Romney campaign allowed this presentation:
RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
Have the conservatives finally found the backbone to learn something from their liberal brethren?
Romney, as a long-time financier and business consultant, understands the importance of knowing as much about the situation and the people you are negotiating against as anyone. I would not put it past him to have realized that in order to beat a community organizer you need to think like one. Hence the possibility of learning Alinskyfrom end to end.
Maybe I am giving him too much credit but the possibility does exist. The ridicule is not just the Eastwood skit but also the Ryan speech section on the kid moving into his childhood bedroom and the follow up commercial ad of the student talking on the phone from the bedroom.
If so, this campaign will be a lot of fun and will likely succeed beyond our hopes as not only Obama, but the MSM and progressivism getting taken out simultaneously. I hope is plays out the way it looks to me!
