Last week, Mitt Romney was in trouble because he lied about George Bush’s record on abortion. Then this week, the Boston Globe points out that Romney’s campaign lost control of a planning presentation. I think that Matt Lewis’s write up on this will be the definitive one.
The closing sentence of the Globe’s article is:
… the plan lists two ways Romney can set himself apart from Bush. The first says, simply, "Intelligence."
So Romney is telling conservatives that he is as pro-life as Bush (and Brownback?) and smarter than Bush. Not a winning message for Romney.
