    ...your supporters tells you it's now ok to take positions the base hates because hopefully it will help your campaign with voters who are NOT in your base:

    Yet another ill-advised step imho.
    Romney doesn't need to reach out to moderates at this point. There are too few undecideds left and he's got too much back-tracking to do. That will only feed into the flip-flop meme.

    IMHO - it's all about turnout now. Just fire up the base and get them chomping at the bit to get to the polls. SCREAM about the 47%!!!!

    Throwing water on their enthusiasm is counter-productive imho.

    Why would he do that? A large chunk of that "47% (of which the asserted "victimhood" we all know to be inerently dishonest) are his base? Have you met many wildly liberal little old ladies? I haven't... How many hard-working blue collar wage slaves in the blood red midwest did he just insult?

    But he can't take it back - there is nothing he can do to make that comment disappear.
    So run with it and run HARD with it.
