Mitt’s Willie Horton Opportunity
Mitt: Finally you have an in your face opportunity for a Willie Horton like commercial. Recall 1992 commercial featured Gov Michael Dukakis providing weekend parole for a convicted murderer. He then killed another that weekend. Now BO plans to release a proven terrorist – binLaden’s ex-guard not for weekend but for life. Mitt – you must run commercial starting with reference to Willie Horton (run snippet of that commercial) but then state binLaden ‘s ex-guard will be out for good not just weekend. Then run another snippet of the terrorists in Libya and Egypt. Conclude with comment “Terrorists do not operate just on weekends”.
Mitt – you MUST run this commercial. You are well behind in the polls but nowhere near the 17% Bush was in 1992 but commercial changed everything.
