Newsmax's love affair with Newt Gingrich may be doing a slow, hard death, but that just means that Ronald Kessler can engage in Romney-fluffing -- which he's been doing since, oh, 2007 -- with increasing impunity.
Which brings us to Kessler's April 27 column, in which starts: "Senior members of Mitt Romney’s campaign staff view President Obama’s re-election campaign as confused and lacking a message." Kessler spends the rest of his column fleshing out that thought, as well as lovingly detail why Romney's employees think their boss is so awesome, something Romney himself is apparently too modest to tell the voters about:
One thing Romney will not do is boast about how he saved the life of the teenage daughter of his Bain Capital partner Robert Gay. As noted in my story Media Suppress Romney’s Human Side, Romney organized a successful effort to find her when she had disappeared in New York. He wound up rescuing her when doctors determined she was just on the verge of dying from a massive overdose of ecstasy.
Of course, Romney doesn't have to boast about that when surrogates like Kessler will happily do it for him, as he's been doing since, oh, 2007.
