On-message with social media? Good luck with that

Cincinnati (CNN) - Mitt Romney had a mutiny on his hands. Not with his staff but with his embeds.

The hardworking, 20- and 30-something off-camera network news reporters who chronicle Romney's every public utterance had decided on a plan: They would band together and confront the candidate working the rope line, mini-cams in hand, with the hopes of forcing Romney to comment on the Rush Limbaugh controversy.

    A bain derivative pays rush s salary and even willard s wife steered clear and does not want to go there. ann is trying to spin it that women are crying to her only about the economy which by the way has been getting better without willard s help

    Romney is trying to dodge any and all real issues, which proves just how phoney this guy is.

    Rmoney criticized Rush Dumbo's language but not the defamatory nature of what what Dumbo said. In other words, Rmoney is still taking Dumbo's side. And he also avoided the subject until his wife or campaign manager decided what he should say. Calling Rmoney spineless is an insult to jellyfish everywhere.

    Hey Jariv and the rest of you Rmoney groupies, is this your example of the "proven leadership skills" and "excellent character" you keeping spouting about?

    And if willard gets to buy the presidency then ann s mission as flotus will be to decide which reporters won t be allowed near the oval office. she is already beginning her mission by deciding which reporters to throw off the romney campaign bus

    Ann, did you really think those reporters traveling with willard are beholden to you and your husband because he throws them a few pastries?
