Call in to speak with the host
by DON MANNING
The whole world is a-Romney-bashin'. So tonight, when you call in to Speaking of America, let's see if we can't cut the man some slack. I'd like to talk about the warped world that Fox "News" and the Republican media empire has foisted upon Mr. Romney. Could anyone have done any better at the top of a GOP ticket in 2012?
Romney's campaign appears to be betting that there are enough Republican media consumers in America to win a general election. But my guess is they realized long ago that this is a losing bet. The problem is that, if Romney so much as mentions facts and events from the reality-based world, he is crucified by consumers of Fox "News" and Rush Limbaugh whose self-esteem and/or business plans depend upon business plans on denying any such a world exists. The man can't win!
Tomorrow night's radio program will be all about the moderates who remain in Republican party, and why they stick around for the abuse from those who are referred to as the "base" of the party. But when we talk about the "Republican base," who are we really talking about if not Republican media consumers? MORE
It's good to talk.
