Certainly don’t want to get my hopes or expectations up, but I do feel it is worth commenting on the performance of the Romney campaign during the first two weeks of their “presumed Republican nominee” status.

Obama’s official and unofficial campaign effort fired multiple shots at Romney in the past two weeks. The three shots worthy of mention are:

– Ann Romney has never worked a day in her life.
– Mitt Romney comes from a family of bigamists
– Mitt Romney has a foreign bank account to avoid paying taxes

In each case the Romney campaign not only responded, but turned the attack back on Obama:

– Democrats are now waging a “War on Stay-at-home Moms”.
– Obama’s ancestors practiced bigamy more recently than Romney’s
– Obama paid a smaller share of taxes than his secretary, plus Obama’s share of charitable contribution is dwarfed by Romney’s.

And to top it all off, Obama is now an acknowledged dog-eater. This one is especially rich since Obama’s team and democrats in general have made a huge deal over the years about Romney once putting his dog in a kennel on top of his car. Now Romney only has to say “Yeah, I did that, but I didn’t EAT him!”

It’s been a good couple weeks for Romney. Gotta hope it’ a sign of things to come. Crossing my fingers.
