“I think he’s made a strategic decision to abandon the advantage of being the incumbent and having the presidential air by using that kind of language, by going on the soft venues, by giving ridiculous speeches about Romnesia,” syndicated columnist and FOX News contributor Charles Krauthammer said on Thursday’s broadcast of “Special Report.”

“This is the man who gave one of the great political speech in American history eight years ago and he’s talking about Romnesia. And he’s talking about all this small stuff. And I think he’s doing that as a way to get the demographics, the young people, etc. But what he has forfeited is the stature of a president. I think Romney is trying to portray himself as exactly that and that could be the winning strategy,” Krauthammer added.

Camille Paglia, who voted for Obama in ’08, delivers a fine rant about why she’s not voting for him this time.  An excellent article at Althouse.
