WND's Corsi Goes Romney-Fluffing On His Press Plane
Topic: WorldNetDaily

We're seeing the fruits of Jerome Corsi's current traipsing about on Mitt Romney's press plane -- Romney-fluffing that would make Ronald Kessler proud.

Here's how Corsi began his Oct. 18 WorldNetDaily article:

An exceptionally upbeat and confident Romney camp left the second presidential debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., to hold two enthusiastic, overflow outdoor rallies in Virginia.

Romney left his hotel in Long Island at 9:30 a.m. Eastern yesterday accompanied by comedian Dennis Miller, who planned to join the Republican nominee at the Virginia rallies.

From all appearances, the Romney campaign – bolstered by a new Gallup poll putting the Republican nominee over the crucial 50-percent mark with just three weeks to go – is a smoothly run operation, with a corporate feel in which meetings and rallies are held on time, contingencies are taken into account and efficient staffers are responsive to media needs and requests.

Corsi then summarized Romney's stump speech, then notes that Romney headed to New York "to prepare for the 67th annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner at the Waldorf Hotel." Uh, Jerry? It's the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Apparently, Corsi has no access to basic research tools while on the Romney press plane.

Corsi took a similar tone in his article the next day:

From the inside, the Romney campaign has more the feel of a professionally run, initial-public-offering road tour conducted by top Wall Street investment bankers than of a traditional presidential political campaign in which political operatives – for whom it’s just the next in a series of presidential campaigns – jawbone the traveling press about how well this season’s party candidate is doing.

Gallup’s national daily tracking poll of registered voters had Romney up 52 to 45 yesterday and 51 to 45 today.

Today, the Romney motorcade battled afternoon, midtown New York City traffic and contended with drivers of varying skill levels on the New Jersey Turnpike to arrive at Newark Airport with only a 15-minute delay.

Um, Jerry? Nobody cares about how your trip in the Romney motorcade went. Nevertheless, the fawning tone continued:

Like IPO investment bankers ever aware that a market can turn unexpectedly against their corporate client, the Romney team is not expecting the Obama administration’s current problems with its troubled narrative on the Benghazi terrorist attack to persist.

Writing about Romney's debate preparations, Corsi added:

That, Romney campaign spokesmen insist, is the reason the Republican nominee is traveling to Boca Raton early – not to enjoy the beach and sun as fall weather rapidly takes hold, but to use every possible remaining hour to prepare to counter a yet resilient and powerful U.S. president on foreign policy.

Really, did anyone expect anything less than total sycophancy from a near-pathological Obama-hater like Corsi?
