One thing Mitt Romney has no shortage of these days is advice. Most of it comes from bedwetting conservative columnist who feel his top advisor, Stuart Stevens, has to go. I too admit his campaign his too cautious. The latest to offer her two cents is Sarah Palin. Bear in mind, the Republican establishment types in the Romney campaign will probably listen to James Carville before they'll listen to Sarah Palin. And that's a shame, because this is very good advice:
In a statement to THE WEEKLY STANDARD, former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin offers some advice for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, this year's Republican ticket for president and vice president, respectively.
"With so much at stake in this election, both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan should 'go rogue' and not hold back from telling the American people the true state of our economy and national security," says Palin. "They need to continue to find ways to break through the filter of the liberal media to communicate their message of reform."
I felt Romney not backing down, entirely at least, from the "47 percent" video was one example of his willingness to "go rogue" as Palin puts it. Put another way, regardless of who is advising them. Romney/Ryan need to speak from the heart. I've come to believe Romney the moderate is the creation of those around him. The Romney captured on video behind closed doors needs to run for President. And he doesn't have much time left to do it.
I'm not in the panic mode many nationally known worry warts are. But yes, there is cause for concern.
