Romney Needs Presidential Pose

I disagree with Joe Scarborough, who rants that Mitt's problem is that Republicans don't win when they run as moderates. I think Mitt's problem is that he's just not performing at a presidential level. The Democrats' convention schtick was about looking like they have the big  shoulders to carry the country.

The Romney people think they can run a Bob Dole campaign, a John McCain campaign... we will lose if you don't start running as a conservative...

Mitt, and Paul Ryan, both still seem shaky - not ready for prime time. That's what needs fixing.


Escaping interviews unharmed is not enough at this stage. It's time for strong assertions.
