More of my Take on Romney’s failure to raise his game over the weekend from “Morning Joe.”
“Well, I think, the big question for Romney is performance. Look at what he did on “60 Minutes.” Look at — he talked on the plane last night to his press corps. He’s still giving the same kinds of answers, the same specificity and lack of specificity, the same failure to drive a message to put the President on the defensive. If you’re a candidate behind and you have that long “60 Minutes” interview, or you make a choice to go talk to your press crops, you got to drive something that dominates the news, rather than the same old questions about low level of performance, same questions about lack of specificity, same questions about why are you behind in all the battleground states. I don’t think he did that in either of those two opportunities. The time is running out before the debate for him to frame things so the debate is more on his terms rather than on equal terms or the President’s terms.”
