This time, the victim is Mitt Romney, and the leaked internal memo took the form of a 77-page powerpoint presentation concerning the former Massachusetts Governor’s vulnerabilities. Most prominent among them is his record of flip-flopping on social issues, which have already earned him the distrust, if not antipathy, of some of the social conservatives whose support is thought of as critical to winning the nomination. Most amusing are the concerns that Romney’s hair is too perfect.
Once again, no thoughtful person considering the advantages and disadvantages of a Romney candidacy would not have figured all of these things out on their own. I predict minimal harm to Romney’s candidacy, although I think there’s a fork in him as it is; some people just don’t want to see it for what it is.
I notice that John McCain has not been the victim of such leaks yet. Hmm.
