Ruffini: “Romney’s leads remind me of Howard Dean’s hard-earned leads in those states in 2004”

Analysis: Romney invests massively-heavily in Iowa and New Hampshire. So: if he wins, he performs as expected. However: if he loses, or shows any sign of weakness … Is this an effective investment strategy? High costs, low returns, the Romney electoral game plan?

Writes Ruffini here:

Romney has worked hard to get leads in Iowa and New Hampshire, but that means there is now no way for him to exceed expectations. In a way, Romney’s leads remind me of Howard Dean’s hard-earned leads in those states in 2004. He worked his tail off to wow the activists and had all the momentum in 2003 — and consequently, any show of weakness became fatal.

Prediction: expect desperation. Question: How does Romney behave when desperate? No screams I suppose. Mitttwits insist that Romney is an unemotional problem solver. Do you remember that awful story about Romney’s poor dog? So: expect lots of unemotional problem solving.
