NV-Sen/NV-03: Escape from #RomneyShambles

Yesterday, Mitt Romney's running mate, Paul Ryan, did an interview with Reno NBC affiliate KRNV in hopes of diffusing Romney's latest self-inflicted political crisis. Instead, Ryan further embarrassed his campaign. Here, take a look at this...

Then go ahead and look at this.

President Obama has an 8-point lead over Mitt Romney among likely voters, bolstered by renewed Democratic enthusiasm in the wake of the Democratic National Convention, according to a new poll from the Pew Research Center.

“At this stage in the campaign, Barack Obama is in a strong position compared with past victorious presidential candidates,” said Pew President Andrew Kohut. “Obama holds a bigger September lead than the last three candidates who went on to win in November, including Obama four years ago. In elections since 1988, only Bill Clinton, in 1992 and 1996, entered the fall with a larger advantage.”

Obama leads Romney 51 percent to 43 percent. A poll from NBC News and the Wall Street Journal released Tuesday night showed a 5-point Obama advantage. [...]

“We are seeing a substantial increase in Democratic engagement in this election over the last month,” Pew research director Michael Dimock told TPM in an email. “Some of this may be linked to the conventions, which emphasized to Democrats the stakes in this election, as well as reminding them of some of the core values of the party in [Former President Bill] Clinton’s speech.

Hmmm, I wonder why this is happening. Could it be the aftermath of the conventions? Could it be Romney's Libya meltdown? Could it be Romney's latest 47% meltdown? Perhaps it's a result of all of the above?

Funny enough, Dean Heller is now trying to run away from his soon to be former BFF. I guess he didn't get Joe Heck's memo. They were so close, yet now Heller is trying to run away from both Heck & Romney. Hmmm, I wonder why...

Could it be? Could it be that he's realizing Romney is losing?

The problem for both Heller and Heck is that they're far too tied to the hip ideologically to Romney for this to work. I guess that's why Heck is standing by his man. But if Dean Heller is now sending out this kind of signal, what are top Nevada Republican strategists really thinking about Romney's chances now?

  1. Hey... I KNEW that this poor rich guy was out of touch,
    but now.... I think he’s just touched.
    What does our country owe its people?
    What do our people owe our country?
    What do we ...we the people....owe to each other? part of a society called America?
    Are we in the jungle, or are we a community?
    Romney and Company has an answer.
    And it ain’t pretty.
    They smirk ...and smile ...and say to us:
    TO HELL with all those “moochers” and “free-loaders”
    receiving Medicare, or Veterans Benefits, or Pell Grants,
    or Earned Income & Child Tax Credits, or Head Start, or Social Security,
    or Unemployment, or Medicaid, or Food Stamps, or on Disability,
    Romney says TO HELL with all of us that are struggling to stay afloat,
    to those in the Middle-class, and to those hoping to get there.
    Romney says TO HELL with the hungry, the homeless, the helpless,
    and the hopeless ...and to all the biblical “least of these”.
    Does he even know the Christian New Testament?
    Romney says TO HELL with the “47% of America” -- the “losers”
    that Romney so easily dismisses and disrespects as “dependents”.
    Romney wines and complains... INCREDIBLY
    ...that we’re shamelessly sponging off of him,
    and off of all of his poor-poor-poor super-rich friends
    .....all those super-rich folks who want to BUY this ELECTION,
    .....all those super-rich folks who want to BUY this COUNTRY.
    Trickle-down economics? Hey sure, why not- let them eat cake.
    It’s all the same. Always has been.
    It’s crumbs for us, and Cadillacs and car elevators, and loopholes & lower taxes for them.
    That is, if they, AND the bailed-out banks,
    AND the big corporations pay ANY taxes at all....
    When THEY get a break- they deserve it.
    But if YOU get a break, it’s a handout.
    Tell me - who are the REAL “takers”, who are the REAL creators,
    who are the TRUE workers and builders? Who are the REAL “victims” here?
    Who’s in the Cayman Islands trying to avoid taxes, and deducting his trick horses?
    Who gave their LIVES and limbs unpaid and un-needed wars?
    Whose sweat, .....on whose brows, has BUILT this great country?
    Was it the Romney’s of this world ...or us?
    But we still have a voice. It’s called our VOTE.
    Loud and Clear -- Just say NO.
    Say NO to Romney & Company ...and what they stand for.
    This is STILL our country. Our children’s country.
    And we mean to KEEP it that way. Period.
    Romney should “self-deport” himself back to Mexico,
    where his grandpa fled to avoid US marriage monogamy laws.
    ‘Cause Prince Mitt not only wants to kill the Dream Act,
    but the American Dream as well.
    We need a President for ALL the people.
