What happened to the optimism of 2008?  writes that Gov. Romney may have lost his sunny disposition:

In a speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars today in San Antonio, Texas, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney painted a decidedly dark portrait of the current state of the country at home and abroad.

“We stand near the threshold of profound economic misery,” said Romney. “Four more years on the same political path could prove disastrous.”

At another point in the speech, Romney said: “Today we are united not only by our faith in America. We are united also by our concern for America.”

On foreign policy, Romney cited a “near-nuclear Iran…an unstable Pakistan… [and] a delusional North Korea” as evidence that “the world is not becoming safer.”

So, how will this play with American voters?  Read what Chris thinks here.

    I don’t care much what Chris thinks. I come here to EFM to see what David, Nancy and Charles think. I would love a little (no, A LOT of it) EFM optimism about how they think their candidate is doing. I know I speak for all Romney fans when I say we love it when we hear from some of the foremost Romney experts….hint, hint.

      Point taken! I think you guys miss us!

      I think Gov. Romney’s doing great! I think Rick Perry will not play well in the general election, and honestly, I don’t think he plays well now.

      Did you hear him on Hannity? He doesn’t seem to do well when it’s not scripted and doesn’t seem to have real answers.

      In other words, I think Perry is strong, but Romney is much stronger!

      So there, Matt!

  2. Matt says:

    You Rock Nancy! I humbly stand corrected. I emphatically agree w/ you on Perry, but have another question. Will a Palin entry make all of the Perry/Romney talk irrelevant? Would it be difficult for any of you on EFM to stand as firmly beside and behind Mitt w/ Sarah in the race? Sorry if that is being too bold.
