◼ Over at Slate, Dave Weigel writes about the Romney campaign's nimble rapid response operation in what's effectively been the early days of the general election. - Philip Klein/Washington Examiner
Last week, Romney's team seized on negative comments by Democratic lobbyist Hilary Rosen about Ann Romney being a stay at home mom to push back on the charge that Romney was part of a Republican "war on women." Yesterday, it poked fun at President Obama for having eaten dog meat as a child in Indonesia to respond to the story about Romney having put their dog Seamus on the roof for a family road trip. Though this has been successful at pushing back against some of the manufactured attacks coming from Obama, it's still a case of Romney playing defense.
...The truth is that the "war on women" controversy is an attempt to distract attention from his dismal record as president and the Medicare rhetoric is meant to distract from the reality that Obama has not presented a plan to put the nation on a sustainable fiscal course. Romney needs to remind voters of this and sell voters on a positive agenda of his own.
