Mitt Romney and No Fear

Earlier this year, I spoke of how the Republican candidate must campaign with "No Fear," must take the fight to the President and should thank Donald Trump and Sarah Palin for setting the precedent. The candidate who does this in the general election will be the 45th President, and the one who doesn't will be responsible for allowing a President who has caused unemployment to rise over 10%, has raised taxes, has grown the size/scope of the Federal Government, has made the US a laughing stock around the world and who has caused the deficit to rise over $15 trillion, to have two terms.

With that being said, I was very concerned with Mitt Romney's comments on The O'Reilly Factor this week.

Mitt Romney is giving Obama a pass on this issue and is negatively affecting his campaign, not forcing the president to articulate why he is not a socialist, and is giving up a teachable moment to not only Republicans and Conservatives, but the precious independents that the Republican establishment so covets. This president needs to be challenged and if Mitt Romney is not that Republican candidate to show no fear and do so, then maybe the Republican voters need to go shopping for a new candidate.
