If Romney's Got Balls, He's Got To Whip Them Out NOW...
Actually, the rule isn't entirely new - the fact that Barack Obama was vocally opposed to the "surge" that eventually won the Iraq War was blacked out in the press, much like Joe Biden's plan to partition Iraq into warring segments was never given more than a cursory glance by a media determined to sweep them into office.
The press, concerned over this potential weak spot within Dear Leader, demands that Mitt Romney shut up about this horrendous attack on this solemn day - an attack in which the administration refused to even defend our dearest values - and just let the president jet off to Las Vegas to continue his never-ending campaign fundraising. Should too many Americans be made aware that the al-Qaeda flag was raised on American territory on September 11th, well....that could be a problem for Barack Obama. And we can't have that.
Should Mitt Romney bow to this pressure, he is finished. If he calls off his attack on the disastrous policy of Barack Obama, he reinforces the media's desperate case that somehow, Romney committed a gaffe for speaking some plain and obvious truths. At this late stage, it may cost him the election, when these events should in fact be imperiling Obama.
Don't be ashamed to fight back hard, Mitt. This is already a two-on-one, with the media holding your arms behind your back while Obama takes cheap shots in between fawning for the crowd.
If you go down here, you bring the party and the nation down with you. So fight with everything you got, fight like it really means something.
Or get the fuck out of the way.
