Obama Tells Romney to Stop Whining

The Obama campaign is painting Romney as a soft, weak, whiner. A man who beneath all of the attacks he deploys is someone who can’t be trusted and lacks the strength to be president.

Americans love presidents who portray or exhibit strength. JFK did it. Ronald Reagan portrayed himself as the presidential embodiment of America’s Cold War strength. Obama did it when he gave the successful order to kill Bin Laden. Every successful president has had a moment when they embodied America’s collective self perception of strength.

Candidates who were defined as soft like George H.W. Bush, Michael Dukakis, and John Kerry all lost presidential elections. What started out as an attack on Romney’s shady finances is morphing into public image that will be hard to shake.
