It’s right from the textbook.
Mitt Romney is trying to move off the defensive by attacking President Obama for supposedly practicing “crony capitalism.”
This is pure Rove: take your own flaws as a candidate and shout loudly that those are the things wrong with the other guy. If you’re a chickenhawk running against a veteran like Max Cleland or John Kerry, attack their patriotism. Some of Mitt’s best friends own professional sports teams, but he doesn’t practice crony capitalism.
Stay tuned next week, as Romney attacks Obama for being an “elitist, self-centered rich white guy.”
