Both tweets, highlighted below, were somewhat truthful and very ironic…
“Election: To win Romney must open big tent to sympathetic families. Stop fearing far right which has nowhere else to go. Otherwise no hope.”
Truth: The Republican primary is over. The extreme right-wing is not voting for Romney, they’re voting against Obama. Take comfort, Mitt, you’ve locked up the FOX News demographics… Time to focus on the informed.
Irony: Murdoch is the mad scientist who created the monster, FOX News, an organization that feeds on fear and has devoured the Republican Party. Now, when the mob gets feisty, Murdoch is expecting the village idiot running for mayor not to tinkle in his trousers ?
“Election: Romney must draw clear line: offer specific path to restore American dream versus ugly Obama class war with jobs disappearing.”
Truth: When Romney’s senior campaign adviser, Eric Fehrnstrom, revealed their Etch A Sketch strategy for the fall campaign, in effect resetting their severely conservative platform, people didn’t realize Romney would be resetting daily. You can’t draw a big picture with clear lines when you’re furiously shaking the Etch A Sketch in front of David Gregory, when asked about healthcare on Meet the Press.
Irony: Mitt is a fool backed into a corner, and Rupert Murdoch needs to accept – When you are surrounded by a mob that is whipped into a frenzy, there is no way forward, no clear path to the American dream. It’s about time Murdoch and Igor (aka Karl Rove) make peace with the mob and own the hysteria they’ve incited.
Rupert Murdoch is clearly a savvy businessman, who values expediency and a concise message, so I have a tip for him. Next time, consolidate your feedback and just tweet…
@MittRomney. Hey idiot, I got the mob. Drop the Etch a Sketch and change your trousers. Recruit new villagers in time for election. #dumbass
Or alternatively, Mr. Murdoch, just hit speed dial and tell Romney yourself.
