Newsmax's Ruddy Unhappy With Romney's Campaign
Topic: Newsmax

Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy occasionally stops toeing the right-wing line to tell actual truths, like praising President Obama's foreign policy. He did so again in a Sept. 10 column, this time criticizing the way Mitt Romney's campaign is being run:

Earlier this year it seemed to many that Mitt Romney was a shoo-in to become our next president.

Not anymore.

Back then the landscape looked quite promising for Romney to beat Barack Obama. After all, Obama was a Democratic president presiding over one of the worst recessions since the Great Depression, a doctrinaire liberal out of sync with most Americans, and a man who apparently has lacked the leadership to forge compromises in Washington to get the nation moving again.

But months later, Mitt Romney is behind in national tracking polls, most importantly in almost every swing state. A leading GOP official on Capitol Hill told me in Tampa that Romney can't win Ohio, and he won't win Virginia.

How could this happen?

Ruddy complains about the campaign's lack of conservative outreach, Romney's parade of gaffes, confusing messaging, and how the campaign "spent $2.5 million of critically important campaign funds building the Frank Gehry-inspired wood stage, which he cited someone calling it "a Swedish sauna."

Ruddy also rathery coyly writes, "Obama critics have been touting Edward Klein's new best-selling book about Obama entitled 'Amateur.'" He doesn't mention that one of those "Obama critics" that has been touting Klein's book is Newsmax.
