YOU KNOW, I THINK I LIKE THE CUT OF THIS ROMNEY FELLOW’S JIB: Heh: Romney Holds Campaign Event Outside Solyndra HQ. “Solyndra is the failed California-based solar technology company that received more than $500 million in federal stimulus money before it went bankrupt last year. It has since become a mantle of Romney’s argument that Obama doesn’t know how to run the economy.”
Romney’s people kept the event secret for fear of Obama-administration interference.
But wait, it gets better: David Axelrod met by loud pro-Romney crowd. “The event was supposed to have been a secret. The campaign did not announce Mr. Axelrod’s appearance in Mr. Romney’s hometown until early Thursday morning, although word of it leaked out on Twitter late Wednesday.”
But wait, it gets better still: “Then the Obama goons tried to bully the Romney supporters. Epic fail. The crowd even chanted ‘Cory Booker’ at Axelrod. Hilarious.”
UPDATE: Video: Famous Chicago political organizer … outorganized? Heh. This isn’t the McCain 2008 campaign.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Byron York: Combative Romney Team Hits Obama Coast to Coast.
“The Obama campaign thought they were going to come into our own turf and launch a dishonest sneak attack on Gov. Romney’s record,” says the Romney aide. “We’re not going to allow that to happen. We are going to hold them accountable every single time.”
Punch back twice as hard.
