“As Rivals Stir, Romney Sticks to Playing It Safe” (TIMES, 7/21/11)


     Is Mitt Romney “playing it safe” or is he only angling for the second spot on the Republican ticket?

     Right now, the GOP strategy for winning the presidency in 2012 is concentrated on bashing Obama, in convincing voters that he cannot continue at the helm.

     Later on, when he’s covered with mud, the Republican leadership will push forward its Mister Clean candidate: “honorable soldier” David H. Petraeus.

     He won’t be clad in armor nor mounted on a white horse, but he will shine  like a newly-minted penny nonetheless and will get plenty of exposure as the director of the Central Intelligence agency.
