Esto es lo que verdaderamente más fríe los nervios a los republicanos. ¿Por qué un candidato que (se supone que) está perdiendo se toma la licencia de estar cuatro días sin hacer campaña a seis semanas de las elecciones y de hacer mítines a una media de tres días por semana y un acto por día?
*** Romney’s sparse battleground state schedule: Once again, Romney today isn’t campaigning in a battleground state; instead, he’s raising money. Get this: Romney’s last event in a battleground state was on Friday in Ohio, and it was just a single event. Compare that to Obama’s two rallies yesterday in Ohio (in Cincinnati and Columbus). So that’s four-straight days of Romney not being in a battleground state. In fairness, Romney was supposed to be in Colorado on Sunday, but that event got canceled after an airplane crash in the state. But time is running out for the challenger… We’ll be curious to see how Romney responds to this current campaign crisis. Bill Clinton and John McCain were candidates who doubled down on campaigning; they’d ADD events to their schedule; campaigning made the feel better, made them forget their own political troubles. Does Romney need a dose of this?
