Stop the presses!
Our feisty local tabloid, reliably in the tank for Mitt Romney, has actually published something critical about the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee.
From Hillary Chabot’s column in today’s Boston Herald:
A cocksure Mitt Romney was already eyeing the keys to the White House yesterday — offering top donors access to his inaugural bash seven months before the election and starting the vetting process for his VP pick — even as GOP observers warned his apparent over-confidence could spark a voter backlash.
“That’s just damned presumptuous,” said Chip Felkel, a Republican consultant based in South Carolina, where Romney saw his air of inevitability deflate after a stunning loss earlier this year. “If there’s one thing Gov. Romney’s campaign has never been able to do, it’s keep themselves in check when it comes to how they present themselves. There are just some things you don’t say.”
A Romney supporter in Georgia sent an email, obtained by Buzzfeed.com, explaining that the campaign is offering special access on inauguration day for those who donate $50,000 or more to the former Bay State governor’s new fund-raising arm, Romney Victory.
