    "What should Mitt Romney do now? He should peer deep into the abyss. He should look straight into the heart of darkness where lies a Republican defeat in a year the Republican presidential candidate almost couldn’t lose. He should imagine what it will mean for the country, for a great political philosophy, conservatism, for his party and, last, for himself. He must look down unblinkingly.

    And then he needs to snap out of it, and move.

    He has got seven weeks. He’s just had two big flubs. On the Mideast he seemed like a political opportunist, not big and wise but small and tinny. It mattered because the crisis was one of those moments when people look at you and imagine you as president.

    Then his comments released last night and made months ago at the private fundraiser in Boca Raton, Fla. Mr. Romney has relearned what four years ago Sen. Barack Obama learned: There’s no such thing as private when you’re a candidate with a mic. There’s someone who doesn’t like you in that audience. There’s someone with a cellphone. Mr. Obama’s clinger comments became famous in 2008 because when people heard what he’d said, they thought, “That’s the real him, that’s him when he’s talking to his friends.”

    THE REST OF NOONAN'S COLUMN GETS INTO THE DETAILS of just how wrong Mitt is on this 47% issue.

    Sorry, no link...but it's on WSJ.com.

    I don't know if he's the idiot, or his campaign manager is the idiot.
    My money's on Romney.
    His entire life, he hasn't had to take orders from anybody.
    He makes the decisions and he tells other people what to do.
    It will be interesting to see what his campaign manager has to say, after election day.

    It's clear that Romney's completely out of touch with regular working Americans.
    Most politicians are at least pretty good at faking it.
    Not Willard.
