‘The Next John Kerry’

by Robert Costa

 

Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser to Newt Gingrich, tells National Review Online that Mitt Romney’s comments to CNN earlier today, that he is “not concerned about the very poor,” are a “startling reminder that Romney may not be the next John McCain, but the next John Kerry.”

“That comment, like so many others by Romney, is not just odd but out of touch,” says Conway, a veteran GOP pollster. “He does not share a connective tissue with the average American.”

 ”Romney seems to be feeling his oats and overplaying his hand,” Conway says, predicting that such “hubris” would haunt the GOP, should he win the nomination. “He neither shares nor understands voters’ struggles; he’s cocooned.”
